    Cool, I hope the multi-gpu support is better with mantle enabled on bf4 since it's reliability was abysmal.
  3. Since 13.4 always get message u have installed latest version and update stopped.
    Before 13.4 got this message 2 years from 11 or 12 xx version.
    In last 3 years was 1 update success.
    Thanks AMD

    it's because you have an old video card. Just install the new beta if you want, but I doubt it will help much.

    Install the last driver that worked for you. As Puiu say's it sounds like you have a very old card.
  6. Yes, there is happened, at last this beta installed success, cant believe
  7. Every 1 year dog = 7 years human, 1 year GPU = .. years human?

    BF4 works pretty smoothly with Mantle now at last, the stutters are far more rare. Haven't had any of the lock ups or graphics artifacts 14.1 was giving me...... yet.

    Well I tried some BF4 and it now works in eyefinity with 3 way CFX enabled which makes me happy. Also some issue with a few games was fixed (Specifically LoL would not bump core clock on my 290X correctly and now it does).

    Crossfired 7970 Ghz edition. These betas kill what was a nice smooth experience in BF4 at 2560x1440 before. Going back to the 13.12 non beta ones. Mantle offers nothing to me at present.
