    No problem, I sort of figured that. If a new driver won't solve the problem, why not try disabling hardware acceleration. I wouldn't think it would matter with just browsing, but it's worth a try. I would think it has to be the driver or the card. Have you tried using a different browser, just for a test?
    Really, the way I see it is I shouldn't have to disable anything, nor switch browsers. That said, those suggestions could help isolate the issue. Anyway my (hopeful) suspicion is that this is a driver issue considering this is a newly released card. But yes, it could be cad, driver, or OS related. Hopefully it turns out to be a driver issue cause having to RMA a second card after 37 days is ridiculous, as well as being a pain in the @..

    Had the same issue with my fury x card. Driver update 15.8 beta seems to have fixed it. It's been several weeks and has only happened once right after the update.
    Yeah, I'm going to give the beta drivers a try right now. Thanks for the info.

    Oh, and I'm going to double-check the cables to make sure they are fully seated and connected.

    Until then....

    I don't disagree with you. It should work right, in any case. Just trying to find a way that makes it work right. Maybe that would give a clue of the underlying problem.

    Yeah Steve, but I don't readily dismiss your suggestions. Unfortunately where this is random, it's hard to readily tell if any of the suggested fixes immediately work. Anyway I'm going to try the new beta drivers and double check those cables.

    First, if you have not done so, REGISTER THAT CARD.

    Just in case you're looking at an RMA.

    PSU supplies >80Amps on the 12+ rail, so you're good there. The card shouldn't need more than ~30Amps I believe.

    Closely inspect the inside of your machine for moisture damage. One of the water coolers could be very slightly leaking. I had an H100 destroy a brand new NVidia card which was out of warranty. (installed custom cooling... >_<)

    Well I swapped drivers - now using the 15.8 beta drivers. Anyway all was good until a couple of days ago when the card artifacted again. What was odd is that turning the monitor off and on again got rid of the artifacts. Also, swapping cables - from HDMI to DisplayPort didn't help either.

    BTW you can see this thread with included YouTube clip to see what I'm talking about - - Sapphire AMD R9 Fury Artifacting (More Info in Comments)

    With that, doing a bit of internet research, it appears this may be a driver as reported in some reviews...

    - AMD Radeon R9 Fury X review (paragraph just above "Grand Theft Auto V" heading)

    - Catalyst 15.7 WHQL Performance Analysis Featuring Fury X & 290X (second paragraph below chart)

    Itíspretty sad that a $560+ dollar card canít be reliably used cause at any time it may artifact in desktop mode due to driver issues

    Oh, and yes, I did check the power supply cables and all is good there.

    Thanks Mike but I don't download GPU drivers from anyone but the manufacturers site. My attitude is if they're not on their site, they're questionable. That said, it appears AMD is actually telling people to stay away from them...

    Please roll back to Catalyst 15.8 Beta or Catalyst 15.7.1 WHQL. ^MB

    At any rate I'm praying for a driver fix, but I'm staying away from those

    BTW those 15.9 beta drivers are posted on AMD's site as well - AMD Catalystô Driver. Still not touching them though.

    Well lol... it looks like I'm having the issue again. After several weeks no problem, then it artifacted when i opened firefox. It does seem to be an issue with the fury cards. Not sure if it needs better drivers or even a vbios update.

    Looks like they updated that beta driver to 15.9.1 and it fixes the memory leak issue. Gonna try that.
