Hi, 

 

Im just wondering with the latest 14.1 drivers are they rated to work with 3 way crossfire at all? All im getting in games like BF4 are straight crashing in both Mantle and Direct3D after reinstalling over 4 times.

 

Im well aware that there are a few issues but this is just bad. Cant even launch BF4 without it crashing on me.

The new 14.1 drivers will crash anything but Windows for me.  Looks like AMD were in too much of a rush to get this out.  Don't know if it is just happening to people running Crossfire or not, but I can't run any games as they all crash.

Might just go back to 13.12

Just thought I would also point this KB out.  AMD are already aware of Crossfire issues with Mantle drivers and won't be fixed until the next update.  Might be better if you just roll your drivers back in the meantime.

Known Issues

 

  • Mantle performance for the AMD Radeon™ HD 7000/HD 8000 Series GPUs and AMD Radeon™ R9 280X and R9 270X GPUs will be optimized for BattleField 4™ in future AMD Catalyst™ releases. These products will see limited gains in BattleField 4™ and AMD is currently investigating optimizations for them.
  • Multi-GPU support under DirectX® and Mantle will be added to StarSwarm in a future application patch
  • Intermittent stuttering or stability issues may occur when utilizing Mantle with AMD CrossFire™ technology in BattleField 4™ - AMD recommends using the DirectX code path when playing Battlefield 4 with multiple GPUs.   A future AMD Catalyst release will resolve these issues
  • Notebooks based on AMD Enduro or PowerXpress™ technologies are currently not supported by the Mantle codepath in Battlefield 4™
  • AMD Eyefinity configurations utilizing portrait display orientations are currently not supported by the Mantle codepath in Battlefield 4™
  • AMD Eyefinity technology is not currently supported in the Star Swarm? application
  • AMD testing for the AMD Catalyst™ 14.1 Beta Mantle driver has been concentrated on the following products: AMD Radeon™ R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280, R9 270, R7 260X, R7 260, HD 7000 Series, HD 8000 Series, A10-7850K and A10-7700K. Future AMD Catalyst™ releases will include full test coverage for all AMD products supported by Mantle.
  • Graphics hardware in the AMD A10-7850K and A10-7700K may override the presence of a discrete GPU under the Mantle code path in Battlefield 4™
  • Frame Pacing for Dual Graphics and non-XDMA configurations above 2560x1600 do not currently work with Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4.   An upcoming release will enable support
  • DX9 Dual graphics is not supported in AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta.   An upcoming release will enable support

I read the realease notes and opt'ed to NOT play with mantle..  I seem to be running ok with 2x7870s and BF4 at 1080p..

Im more worried about crossfire and Titalfall at this point.  Will Titanfall support crossfire??
