Watch YouTube, learn the maps and try to flank rather than going head-on, choose your engagement range and stick with it.

Hi all
Installed 16.12.1
Nothing in terms of fps changed. at least for my RX 460.minimum fps in GTA 5 seems 2-3 higher. frame times also seems to be a bit lower now.
Witcher 3 , same. haven't tested anything else.
Haven't enable chill nor tried relive. no need for that with a RX 460.
But the UI is more fluid now, wattman no longer crashing.

Hmm I expected a bit more :\

What exactly did u expect? You didn't try chill nor relive and I'm assuming you don't have a freesync monitor either. Basically you didn't try any of the big features that came up with it and here you are saying you need more? They never said you ll get a huge performance boost with it anyway.

The Day 1 drivers for the 400 series was already heavily optimized on launch, so the improvements you get with following releases is slightly less apparent. But like truckerice mentioned it was more about the software features than mere FPS improvements. Now there is no excuse for the average user to get an AMD card instead of an Nvidia because of features like ShadowPlay.

Hi truckerice,xyberninja
Yes, this driver was all about relive and chill, not mention of perfomance in release notes.
I was fooled by the 'performance' in triangle advertisement they did for this drive. maybe they meant perfomance of the UI. :D

BUT

they great news is this, like gods not like to disappoint the radeon RX 460 owners,
THEY CAN BE UNLOCKED TO MORE PERFORMANCE.
I read this article by that tech site:

http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-rx-460-polaris-11-unlock/

I am now waiting for a sapphire radeon RX 460 BIOS file and instructions  :)

Despite all the positives for the AMD cards, we don't have enough stocks in the market when the user is looking for one. If this be the case, bring in more AMD Cards from different manufactures pls.

Whether it be Unity, EGS (who is an avid believer of the almighty power of NVIDEA), Nanotek or even Redline, the local market is never short of Nvidea cards. One of my friends also bought a NVIDEA card recently as he couldn't find a 480.

There's some good info there, but seriously, I think AMD is better off firing their entire marketing department and just divert the budget to improve their R&D.

I know right. Let people buy what they want without misleading them. Sell AMD cards if you think people are leaning towards AMD now. Can't be that hard to bring them down.

May be next time post a article from a reputable site.

EGS stopped making comments the moment 480 inevitably started to edge ahead and win the battle against 1060. He was vociferous and making comments when 1060 came initially and was doing better than 480 on dx 11 titles.

It would really help everyone if you can bring AMD cards because SriLankan market can do with more ATI dealers. They offer best bang for bucks.

We need the best that we can buy for our money as most of us are budget conscious.

This is from a Nvidea user btw.
