I recently got a new pc and in it a brand new Saphire R9 270x graphics card.
When I open Minecraft I can play for a few minutes, but after that I get a visual bug (checkered pattern shows up randomly on screen) and soon after drivers and Minecraft.exe crash.
The same bug appeared while watching a video on youtube.
Here's the list of things I tried:
-Updating card drivers
-Tried out latest Beta driver and 13.9 and 13.4 driver
-Tried installing other versions of Java (currently running Java 7 update 55 x64, tried Java 7 update 21 x64 and Java 8 update 8 x64)
-Combining diffrent versions of Java with diffrent versions of drivers
-Testing with other games (Team fortress 2, Crysis 2, Dead island - all of them worked perfectly)
-Testing the card in friends PC - Minecraft also crashed, but Battlefield 4 ran with no problems on 120 FPS
-Running Minecraft in compatibility mode
Any ideas? Maybe Minecraft and this card just aren't meant to go together, but it can be fixed in future driver update? Thanks for reading
