    Why could a new card get a not proper driver support during its launch? Because of not proper driver testing by a third party and no certification for compatibility.

    I am sick and tired of this AMD's psyche of an underdog. nvidia never releases "beta" drivers.

    AMD has a long history of giving long term support to their older hardware, making their GPUs have a longer useful life. There's no reason to think that has changed, especially with how popular Vega still is.

    Yet they've made no visible effort to resolve the elevated memory clocks issue for the VII and don't even mention that overclocking hasn't worked since 19.7.5 for the VII?

    It's bizarre. To drop the support of their Flagship videocard, just have no words...

    Asus are paying the cashback offer not OcUK, so claiming your cashback is strictly between you the customer and Asus directly who shall pay the funds direct into your bank account.


    This is nothing short of an incredible deal, even though you gotta put a little effort in the end result is a hugely powerful 1080P/1440P graphics card that are even 4k capable at a totally insane bargain price, remember the AMD games offer to make the value even better and Asus 3yr warranty which OcUK deal with. :)

    It's very disappointing. I have been an advocate of AMD GPU's for some time. But the lack of care for customers over this issue does make me think twice before spending a lot on a future high end one.

    Nope, no fix. Why don't they fix it, though?

    I thought there was suppose to be a big feature release one due before the years out. I mean ok theres still just under a month but if them above ones just come out its not looking good.

    This is not normal. I would RMA the card, if it does this :o

    If these settings don't have anything to do with it. Looks like the card doesn't recognise 3D load and thinks it should turn the monitor off.

    How can I check whether freesync is available on a monitor? If the freesync option can be turned off and in in Radeon Settings does it mean the monitor definitely supports it?

    Edit: I know the simple answer is to check the monitor specs but there is conflicting info on this monitor.

    I would think so yes. This is what it tells me on my three monitor, one freesync and 2 not supported.
