>"New driver available", oh cool I'll get it.
>It's this shit

This "Crimson" bullshit is the worst fucking abomination ever. "AMD Radeon Settings" doesn't have any settings at all, they literally removed like half the settings. It can't detect my secondary monitor, so I'm now just using one. The utility always crash after two minutes, and even before it crashes, it can't do shit and is an unnavigatable piece of utter retardedness. And on top of that it automatically sets my language without the option to change it. I've always bought ATI/AMD but next time I'm getting nVidia. Releasing this shit to their customers proves they are incompetent and have shit for brains.

Where can I download old version drivers with Catalyst?

We're all devastated to see you go, anon.

Like and subscribed tho. Will wait to see your new Novideo. :^(

>that great feel when I ditched my dying r9 290 for a 970 and I've never been happier, my last 4 cards were AMD but I have seen the light

Hit Displays and click Advanced.

I have a 2K display, the program told me rocket league wasn't optimized, when I clicked through to find out what it would optimize: AMD would set the resolution from 2560x1440 to 1920x1080.

No, fuck off. At least AMD has decent open source drivers for Linux, Nvidia is aggressively against their users being in control. Nvidia boycots open source, Nvidia requires signing up for the experience bullshit for driver updates, Nvidia will go full data mining, more aggressively than AMD. Nvidia pushes lock in, sacrificing technological advancement, more so than AMD. Nvidia pushes everything that's bad about software, the only reason you're falling for Nvidia is some fancy ray traced 3D models and marketing.

Maybe it didn't think your GPU was good enough even with low settings for 2560?
>>
>>51610409
Nah, it recommended ultra settings 1080p.
>>
>>51609769
yeah crimson is shit for now, hopefully it will be fixed in the next release. I'll always buy the card with the better price/fps ratio so I guess my next one will still be AMD.
>>
>>51610449
Those are 2 different things anon. High resolutions can be a bigger toll on your GPU than other factors
>>
>>51610088
It was probably prioritizing framerate over resolution.
Considering the sort of game Rocket League is, that was probably a good idea.
>>
>>51610037

The light's coming from the house fire m8
>>
>>51610597
>>51610761
Also nah. Rocket league caps itself on 64 fps unless you mess with the config, while my gpu is capable of constant 120+ fps on 2K ultra settings. There is no reason to set it on 1080p.
>>
It shows promise for future versions, but I want to know why it was decided that removing the ability to change resolution/refresh rates within Crimson was a good idea.
>>
THIS IS WHY YOU USE THE OPEN SOURCE RADEON DRIVER
>>
In advanced settings it pulls up the old catalyst interface with all the old settings.

If you were too dumb to figure that out, just kill yourself now
