    I'm fully expecting it not be fixed in the next drivers too.

    I've tried the leaked drivers on guru3d and I played for an hour and it didn't tear but that's not saying much. Sometimes it happens straight away and sometimes it doesn't happen for hours.

    Same. I played today for a good 4 hours so and everything was fine. Tomorrow it might start within 30 seconds. When funds allow I'm totally done with these cards and will switch to a single card solution.

    Have a gigabyte 280x and getting the same problems. Mines a factory overxlocked version running at 1500/1100 tried reducing them to 1400/1000 but still getting them on occasion. When running at the stock (for the card) freuqnecys was getting a lot of driver crashes. Recon it's worth RMA'ing or is this driver issue as well, as tried most drivers from the CD ones to the 15.4betas. Gettingnthe artifacting on GTA V particularly random squares appearing around the edges of stuff.

    Don't RMA it. It's definitely not a hardware issue.

    Been playing GTA5 for a good week with no artifacting and the despite the promised fix in the latest patch it returned within a couple of minutes of me playing just now. :(

    Screenshots dont quite capture what it looks like in game but you get the idea.
