Latest drivers?

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though AMD has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Latest drivers?

Postby NeoCzar » Tue Mar 11, 2014 2:11 am

With the last WHQL AMD drivers (13.12):

Implicit single precision: 74.8 ns/day.
Explicit single precision: 21.3 ns/day.

With the last Beta drivers (14.2 Beta 1.3):

Implicit single precision: 86.2 ns/day.
Explicit single precision: 25.1 ns/day.

The newest Betas are causing minor issues when Alt-Tabbing sometimes while HDMIed to the HDTV. Nothing serious though, the folding boost is more than worth it.

Hi NeoCzar,
thanks for your benchmark. :D
What graphics card did you test?

There is also a new driver version 14.3 Beta V1.0
Maybe someone can test these? :?:

We've had this performance boost since the 14.1 betas. I'm a little OCD about things lke that.

It seems to be about the same, or slightly better than the last beta on my HD 7790s (45 K PPD on P 13000/13001) and on my HD 7870s (69.3 K PPD on P 13001 and P 9401), all on Win7 64-bit.
