Been running them since last night, seem stable enough, no noticeable performance increase or decrease, a few new features under the video tab in ccc, a slightly better hash rate in cgminer and the AMD feature manager works now.

Same story here too , drivers are fine .. no noticable increase or decrease .

I like using the latest drivers , so ill stick with these until 14.1

Drivers are still labled 13.12 , i dont think much was changed except support for amd's new apu's .

that sucks, try framepacing on and off, what does that do for your setup? right now between all this Tuning by the Software provders 2 identical systems can have completely different reactions to the software...


im running fine with 1 card, crossfire 100% doesnt work on mine.. freeze right when it loads.. it worked at the beginning on earlier versions of the game and different drivers.

Something I just noticed, is that in gpu-z it reports that DX 11.2 is supported (not sure if it was like that with 13.12) but also reports that my cards a 7900 series (13.12 reported R9 200 series, yes I know R9 280X is a rebaged 7970GHz).

Installed it when released.

I get a bit more distributed CPU load, at times i can see FPS boost (10 frames tops), but I still get big FPS drops at times. Funniest thing is FPS drops are not even when something is happening in game, they just randomly happen.

FX 6300, RADEON 7850, 8GB ram, win 7 64.

dude amd sucks drivers are bad, thats why i switched to gtx!


LOL....I sold my GTX 670 and went with AMD because Nvidia kept putting out buggy drivers. Haven't had any issues with AMD's drivers or my 280X.

AMD drivers have been pretty solid for the last year and half or so, even the beta's, in that time I've seen more people complaining about NVidia drivers than AMD.

The drivers are compatible with the 7XXX series and R9 2XX. Slight performance boost in some games, and as mentioned before, in GPU mining.

Also, the drivers are available on AMD website : http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst13-11APUBetaDriver.aspx [support.amd.com]
The package is quite large for some reason, around 500Mb.

I'm running them now on a r9 270x and it seems stable enough.

nope not yet on page.

also, why talk about 14.1 and 14.2 in the press and then first come with some 13.xx drivers which are still numbered for last year.

its for the CPU's not for the GPU's really.

I believe the package size is due to multiple drivers being in there.

AMD USB3 drivers, Raid Drivers, Support for Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 on the 64 bit architecture and a few other bits I think.
