      16.5 has been nothing but a p.i.t.a.

        Yeah agree compeltely, I tried those crimson drivers and they were terrible, half of my games didnt work.

        Rolled back to the previous version.

          16.5 also lowered performance for me.

            Well, on the other side, it's been great with my 7970, stable as a rock and picked up a chunk of framerate in some newer games

                    The drivers have given mine a nice bump in DX12/Vulkan - surprising given the age of my card.

                      Like the new drivers but removing all the advance picture settings like saturation etc is a massive oversight.

                      Have rolled back until they put the options back in unfortunately

                        Scratch that, there's a massive lag/network driver incompatibility making online gaming a nightmare - remove the ReLive **** from the install and it's fine (just switching it off doesn't work), in case anyone else is having issues.
