I bet. Hopefully that fixes up those "quality" issues.

LOL, we shall see.

It's a bit ridiculous.

Pick a driver, any driver.

It's like this now:


Hotfix A has older WHQL 3D driver, but newer 2D, older everything else (only benefits old series)

Hotfix B Has the same WHQL 3D and 2D driver, but has a newer OpenCL

Hotfix C Has same 3D, 2D , new OpenGL but older blah blah (benefits new series only)

Preview A drivers have newer 3D driver but older mismatches of everything else

Preview B slightly older 3D, newer everything else (benefits crossfire)

WHQL - all of it's old.

+

CAP profiles aplenty


And not a single version that works well universally.

The mouse lag issue was discussed a few drivers back and was supposed to be fixed. Looks like it back??? I've never had the issue myself though.

Don't have the issue, or don't play any of the games that it shows up in?

I never experienced the issue at all, games or otherwise. This of course pertains to older drivers with the issue. Haven't tried any of the new drivers just released.

I'm still using the old (original) 11.4 preview drivers

I noticed it in a few driver versions I tested, but I never kept the driver versions long enough for it to become an issue.

It was noticeable when closing fullscreen windows, you could see the cursor bog down - RTS games where top right screen scrolling was used made it a big deal for some.

AMD bug re-introduction strikes yet again

The two CAT teams really need to talk to each other a bit more.

When team 1 says 'we fixed something' , team 2 should go 'cool, we'll incorporate that fix into our sets'.

Hmmm..... I'm a little skeptical now about updating now

We'll see what happens later.

Worse case scenario is that you just have to revert to an older driver.
