I really like that they FINALLY added custom resolution support. I can now make a custom 48Hz resolution for video playback and have it actually work properly.

I know CRU exists, but using CRU makes FreeSync stop working entirely while the resolution exists, this actually works.

You mean the hardware released four years ago, which is easily and handily outperformed by today's mid-range cards, have what today is inadequate ammounts of VRAM, and have no support for DX12/Vulkan whatsoever?
They have much bigger issues than not getting driver optimizations for a few % extra performance.

In most cases one size fits all, you have one driver for all current CGN desktop cards, one driver for most laptop GPUs and varying drivers which you usually get from your OEM if your card is a special snowflake, and Legacy drivers for older cards.

Nvidia does the same thing.

5870/6970 is still faster than a 750 ti, the best selling sub $100 budget card.

They were released in the era of Fermi, and Fermi is getting DX12 support

AMD officially abandoned them today. No further driver updates.

This is the future if you buy AMD. GCN has been rebranded for 3 years now. GCN will be abandoned once Arctic Island arrives in 2016.

Nvidia cannot abandon support for their legacy cards because their HPC sector are still running Quadro/Tesla based Fermi cards. The support is guaranteed for at least 10 years. That's 2020.

This is why 4chan is fucking retarded.

"I gained 12 fps" - That barely tells us anything.

Is it 12 fps higher when all you were getting before was 10 FPS? that's better than doubling your FPS.

Is it 12 fps while you were getting 200+ FPS (say, in CS:GO)? ... Then that's less than 10% increase.

It's pretty fucking obvious, yet everyone is acting like they never fucking graduated high school.

The 290x is the full chip. 390 is a refreshed 28nm 290 so it's a little better on the wattage but not by much. 290x would be more powerful.

is neglecting same as intentionally gimping? gimping means like intentionally making something worse, actively, with intent.

At this point you are play semantics. 780s should be performing better then they are. Meanwhile 7950s are still going strong.

>>51519996
I am not.

Neglecting isn't same as intentional gimping.

Sure the neglecting is intentional probably, but it's not intentional gimping (feels like touching the drivers and making them worse vs. NOT JUST TOUCHING AT ALL)

its insane difference.

still SHIT company

Please produce a definition of the word "gimping" that is not pulled right out of your asshole. Neglecting to do something can 100% be construed as activity screwing someone over. Once again I ask why are you trying to use curricular logic to defend your non use of the word gimping?

>>
>>51512658
this is AMD.
this was the situation years ago as well, cards getting dropped way too fucking fast.

my mobile radeon had no drivers for Win8, let alone Win10.
this is one of the reasons I go with Nvidia.
I can still use my decade old Geforce 7000 series, or FX card on a new distro, or Windows.
>>
>>51519128
but you get all the drivers without registration.
you only have to register if you want "the leatest" which includes optimizations for the latest title.

with that said I installed Black Ops 3 when it came out, it warned me to update drivers, and I downloaded them from nvidia.com without any registration...
>>
>>51519623
have a 7870 that is said to have GCN but the hw encoder sucks (for Xsplit/OBS/encode), only one game had Mantle support (BF) and it was stuttering like crazy if I enabled it, etc.

Stop being a bunch of sissy retards.

Just report those errors you have encountered to AMD.

They are collecting data now to fix all those small problems.

Appreciate that AMD, with their limited resources try to make something happen.
>>
>>51520008
In this case, it is.
Nvidia purposely moved a lot of hardware features into the drivers. Intentionally neglecting a card that requires additional driver work to work to its full potential is the same as gimping.

Ok, point taken, but saying that powercolor is flat out shit for this is kind of stupid. Every vendor has had multiple faulty pieces of hardware in circulation. It's just a fact of life that is not even limited to complex electronics.

Asus Strix coolers are originally made for Nvidia GPUs and work waaay worse on AMD-cards for some reason, so go with the Nitro.

That's hardly significant enough to claim they're doing that, besides AMD explicitly announced that pre-GCN cards are no longer supported.

I think you mean Gravis Ultrasound.

Unless you mean the Adlib Gold, which was insanely powerful for its time, too bad Creative killed them with their business practices.
>>
>>51519430
>AMD officially abandoned them today. No further driver updates.

And you think Nvidia was updating drivers for Fermi? All they do is include the old drivers with a bumped up version counter, and that's it. They had zero improvements. Heck they get zero improvements the second the next gen cards are out, sometimes they even get gimped so the next gen cards look better.

If anything, AMD is lucky that GCN lasted so long, since optimizations they make now will affect the 7000 series too. That's why they can rebrand the same card for 3 years and still have it perform on par with the competition.

Arctic Island will be a GCN dieshrink from what I heard, so it'll be around for a long time too.
