    Did you guys installed it yet? Any feedback?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    <After doing some further testing my conclusion is this driver is <poor>. Auto under volt is basically power save mode and savages your performance. Auto overclock GPU & memory does absolutely nothing so is a waste of space. The fan curve is an absolute <admin removed> joke TBH. Set the curve to 60% at 75c and it went to 100% as soon as the game started (3330 rpm) and stayed there. Whatever figure I put in above 50% yielded the same result WTF?

    With the previous drivers I could cap the fan speed which would affect temperature and performance but at least the fan noise was bearable. With these drivers AMD seem to think we want to run the fan at 100% all the time for a meager performance increase. Sorry AMD you're wrong give me less noise not more.

    For some reason, might be because I have the original blower card, I get no option to run fan speed at 0. I see absolutely no benefit in this release and seriously wonder why AMD even bothered to make a big thing about it other than they've got absolutely nothing else they can talk about in the GPU space.

    To say I'm disappointed with this POS is a major under statement. All hype and no delivery. Where are the primitive shader gains you promised? DSBR and all the other Vega features that don't work or aren't implemented? Terry Makedon should hang his head in shame after releasing these drivers and maybe it's time he walked the plank as he seems to be as useful as a chocolate fire guard. Sad times to be an AMD Vega owner to be sure.

    I'm rolling back these drivers and maybe in a few months if they can fix all the faults in this release I might download another set of drivers but I won't be holding my breath TBH as I'm not sure they have the talented engineers to pull it off as they've all <gone>to Intel

    I have a Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64 and after testing the auto overclocking features I have found that in balanced plan with auto under-volt it runs my card as fast as in turbo mode but with the same power draw as the balanced plan (240W maxed out), so I am quite happy with that. Pretty much a bonus 4-5% performance.

    I noticed while spamming through the different settings changing, between plans, running benchmarks, that they do not always apply properly. It sounds to me like you were running power save plan then undervolted that hence the poor performance. Try hitting reset to restore default settings. Reboot the pc then swap to a custom profile >>> enable auto under-volt >>> yes >>> hit apply and then see how it affects your performance. I have not tested the fan profiles as my card runs quiet even if I set it to turbo mode.

    The overlay function also seems to work better for me now also. Before it was a bit hit and miss whether it wanted to work on older games. I read the memory overclocking works well for Polaris cards and also the auto overclock tends to be worse than stock as the card continually throttles. With my Vega, the memory overclock did nothing and the overclock gave worse results than the standard balanced power plan due to throttling.
