    Thanks for that.

    I tried that workaround described in the link... without success. Valley ends as soon as it finishes loading. At least that workaround helps preventing my system from freezing which is at least something.

    As Michael pointed out in today's article, fixes (workarounds, exactly) for Unigine Valley and Heaven's bug have been included in git.

    You should check this out: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79659

    Short feedback for the new 14.6 Beta:
    No changes to the old 14.6 Beta for me. Still not faster in Unigine Valley, still graphical glitches when scrolling fast through lists. Also kernel update (from 3.15 to 3.16RC5) didn't change anything.

    Xubuntu 14.04 64Bit, Kernel 3.16 RC5, R9 270

    Also, it seems stable very stable. No problems at all this far. The few graphic clitches I had in DOTA2 have disapeared and I can see the same performance in DOTA2 and TF2. A slight increase in performance in Civ 5 and Metro Last Light.

    Dispite the bad reputation Catalyst has, I would recommend it to everyone. I haven't had a single problem in a very long time now. (I had a problem when 14.4 came out but it came out to be a bug in Unity, not in Catalyst...switched to KDE and everything is fine now).

    I got a noticable increase in Civ 5 performance on my A10-6800K with the driver as well. Maybe a slight improvement in XCom as well, though it was already running really nice.

    On the downside whatever is wrong with that Mount & Blade Warband Beta that makes it not work with Catalyst is still there. I have to believe it's the game's fault though since literally everything else runs like a dream.

    years ago they said that the Opencl bug is a HIGH PRIORITY ... i doubt it.
    Performance graphs that are far from real performance (Mantle)
    That Approaching Zero Driver Overhead in OpenGL conference in the GDC where it seems this new methods could be used now but is far from usable on amd right now.
    Crossfire endless problems (You know well that this technology is not working as promised in a lot of cases and was a lot worst some years ago)
    When they recommended upgrading to GCN cards to have a working opencl back in 2013 when they know it'll take them a lot of time to have this fixed.
    Amd claiming ACP is comparable to TDP
    That controversy around the firepro w8100 architecture.
    ...

    What about "Mouse Cursor Corruption" bug when using multiple monitors?
    Anyone found a solution to it?

    What other lies do you refer to?

    P.S. OpenCL is very much a requirement for game developers. I've been using blender's opencl accelerated rendering and it is way way faster than the normal CPU rendering. It's not just for bit-coin mining you know!

    I actually haven't had this problem at all. Guess I am lucky . Hope it gets fixed for you.
    I have this problem randomly , but the mosty annoying are the freeze of chrome
