    Huh, I hope AMD gives thought to incorporating all that wonderful RadeonPro like mojo. Some nice tweaks become possible if you give users the options to dig in.

    Does this driver release also have something to do with AMD's somewhat recent promise of better DX11 performance?

    Bought an R9 390X today (because it's relatively cheap-ish for a high-end board), so new hot driver would be a welcome thing... :)

    I don't remember seeing any substantial performance boosts promised for the first crimson driver release. It seems to me that the changes are mostly aesthetic and functionality driven.

    So was there an unveiling on the 20th or not...? I haven't seen any news whatsoever on the subject on any of the sites I checked - 2 of the major swedish sites, as well as anandtech, pcper and techpowerup.

    Is there an embargo in place perhaps? If so - why? You'd reasonably WANT people to know about your shiny new driver I would think...! :p

    So this was an Asian event, with nobody from the west invited? Because hopefully, the reason there seems to be no mention of this in english media is not that nobody in the west gave a shit... :p

    I think this driver will launch with Fury X2 hence it's so quiet about it.

    So with LFC (Low Framerate Compensation), there will be no reason to hesitate in choosing Freesync over Gsync (if it works as advertised). Also the general improvement looked very nice. My iGPU needs every help that it can get :)

    New driver manager app scared me when it popped up in under a second [and later activations are instantaneous]. :)
