Windows 10: Best AMD R9 280X Display Driver for W10?

  1.    21 May 2017 #21

    My PSU is a grade-A Corsair AX1200i (modular 1200W) and runs my system perfectly. I have no abnormal component voltage spikes or issues as a result of the PSU so that can be ruled out. It's usually only when something needs hardware acceleration (for the GPU) it starts to cause some issue. For example if I try to load a youtube video (flash/html based) and use Spotify and other applications at the same time sometimes I get little hangs and sometimes a full display driver crash and thus recovers...the other times I get a TDR (Timeout Detection/Delay Recovery) and a system crash accusing the display drivers as the cause of the crash.

    My fans on my GPU do work and they are always spinning. When in "auto" mode the fans spin at about 15-20% speed. I've set a profile for the fans to start increasing speed to cool the GPU at 44% at 56 and 65% at 60'C.

    When I was talking about Vista, TDR is what I was talking about. A lot of people had those. Had a few post here and there on the issue. Here's one of mine in the vista forums. Another where replacing my card solved it

    Even had it in my game guide before I removed it because I hadn't seen one in forever. Weird you're getting them in ten. You sure those cards are good?

    Anyway I have ask questions in order to try and help. If all is good elsewhere, I don't have anything further to add at the moment. Sorry

    Just as a note to the fan speeds the OP has been experiencing...

    Radeon R9 series cards have a definite issue with the fan speed setting when set to Auto. No matter the temperature on R9 series cards, the fan will not go above 20% when set at Auto. At least in my experience with two of them.

    My R9 280 will go until it practically ignites without increasing the fan speed. More than once I have had the card shut down from overheating while playing a game when the fan was set to Auto. I now set my card manually for a constant speed of 65%, and I have had zero issues since then. I honestly think that it is some kind of driver/temp sensor thing in the R9 series at least. Sadly, I don't have one of the RX cards to test to see if they have resolved the auto fan issue.

    I don't know if this is relevant to the OP's issue, but he is definitely not alone in his fan/driver problems.

    I have to laugh at this because I remember playing Dragon Age: Inquisition and having my Sapphire R9-280X Vapor X's fans run so fast and loud to keep the heat at bay that I though the card was going to explode.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition uses Mantle (now Vulcan), (or DX11) as it's API and the graphics really pushes cards. Even my Sapphire R9 Fury gets a workout with that game. And yeah, the fans definitely run above 20% percent!

    Certainly haven't experienced your issue

    I wonder if it is a problem unique to XFX cards then? Both of my R9 cards are XFX, and neither one of them will go above 20% at auto. My XFX 7770 was the same. Maybe it's time to change brands.
