Ever since you changed when you release drivers my experice with my dual 7870 ghz crossfire set up has gone drastically down hill and im not the only one who is dissatisfyed with the lack of responsibility and attention to the needs of your customers nov 19 ac4 came  out it is now dec 27 and still no beta drivers with a crossfire profile for ac4 i have to go and make one my self amd to get the game to work on both cards by setting open gl triple buffer on manually and setting cfx profile to optimized 1x1 to even get the second card to be used but this isnt a perferct solution cause it causes a whole screen flutter that can be noticiable at times with certain things happening in game ,

point is AMD i feel that the only way i and the rest of your customers can get you to wake up and start providing the same lvl of support that your competition does is to file a class action lawsuit against you for failure to support your product , false advertising, and incompetency

I hope that many ppl who read this will leave a comment as to wether they feel the same way mabey then AMD you will realize that your not running with the ball but only fumbling constantly and handing it to the winning team Nvidia 

if things dont change very soon im switching teams and if and when i do im never coming back to amd 

AMD FIX THIS NOW WE WANT WEEKLY UPDATES FOR GAMES THAT COME OUT YOU CAN DO THEM AS HOT FIXES FOR GOD SAKES QUIT LEAVING ME IN THE DARK TO DO YOUR JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well good luck with that. The game works with a single card. And I'm sure that the two tech companies that run the video card industry have some legal jargon in a EULA somewhere about mulitple GPU support. (besides Nvidia has there own issues with video games they are *far* from perfect)

Add to the fact that Crossfire works with a crap ton of games. I fail to see how you would be even remotely close to any sort of victory.

I'm sure they'll fix it eventually AC4 is a fun game. I get close to 60FPS on a single card. I would image you are probably in the high 40's / low 50's with a single card @ 1920x1080 at least. (unless your CPU bound). 

But if you have the money to burn go for it.

Besides you should also go complain to Ubisoft for not even bothering to make any attempt at optimizing there crappy console port for the PC. The game is still capped @ 63FPS so even if crossfire were working my GPU usage on both GPU's would only be around 50%. 

Buildings still pop in and out of exsistance. And the list goes on of how crappy a job ubisoft did to its PC customers. Stop trying to put all the blame on the AMD. 

Good example of a PC port. Battlefield 3. It makes use of AMD CPU's and Intels Multithreading. Crossfire / SLI scaling in the game is great. And since it the game was built on a modern engine. It looks fantatic.

Hey, I'm not a hgamer but switched to amd becuase I was told they provider better support and adobe certified there cards. Well, apparently adobe was wrong as their latest drivers are unstable.

  I'm willing to sign up if it'll wake them up and start providing a quality product. I guess they don't care about the USA, just how cheap they can pawn of crappy workmanship

Not really. Over the last few years Quadro's have become the go-to cards for intensive graphics work for 3D modeling...

The quality of drivers being released really speaks volumes of why that is.

Really?

http://www.cgchannel.com/2013/...ofessional-gpus-2013/

Conclusion:

The AMD FirePros came out on top more often than Nvidia's Quadros in viewport display performance, and they are typically less expensive. With GPU computing, the Quadro cards take the lead for applications that require CUDA, and therefore Nvidia hardware. (Note however, for the growing number of applications that already support OpenCL like Premiere Pro, After Effects, SpeedGrade and DaVinci Resolve, this advantage will be reversed as demonstrated by the LuxMark OpenCL benchmark CGChannel results in which all of the AMD cards outperform all of the Nvidia cards, with the exception of the Quadro 6000, which falls in between the FirePro W7000 and W5000).


So yea, actual professionals trust AMD FirePro video cards, and there is a reason professionals shell out over $3300 for the behemoth that is the FirePro W9000 and over $3000 for the FirePro S10000.
