I have always been a Radeon supporter, ever since ATi days and is the de facto choice for myself and recommendations but my recent experience really destroyed every sliver of faith and confidence I have in AMD Radeon.

What do you think what i have. I come to AMD because of Mantle (nothing against Mantle), but i have only problems with the driver.

I want that AMD will be success in everyting they do. But when the driver should be always 1A. And they are like everyone says the last crap.

Is there something where i can read about future plans of AMD and his drivers ?

A list of the problems and a list of fixes ? Something where i can see that this all is well-known.

One setting that finally made a significant and consistently reproducible difference in the presence of artifacts is simply turning on VSync through the Catalyst Control Center. With VSync on, even when running 3DMark Fire Strike at Extreme settings, I get minimal visual artifacts.

I'm interested in hearing whether other people with R9 graphics cards get similar results.

Edit: Scratch that. After using the video card for long enough with vSync on, artifacts eventually appeared and with the same severity as before. I tried two more driver versions today with the exact same results.

I've given up and decided to send it back. This will be my first ever RMA with Newegg.
