    AMD Omega Driver, Massive boost in Frame-rate for ACU

    If you are an AMD GPU owner then you better get the new AMD Omega driver, since it boosts frame-rates of ACU massively. my R9 280 and FX-8350 are now giving me 43fps in Cite on top of the church, where before around that areas I was getting low 20s.

    All 8 cores are a lot more initialised so basically 20fps increase in the same area.

    Concurred. These are a must download/install if you have AMD hardware.

    I'd also advise anyone thats reading this that's not installed them to completely clear out your old drivers first. There have been reports of conflicts by people who installed them on top of the old ones. Easiest way to do this is download a 3rd party software (i.e. Display Driver Uninstaller) and follow the instructions to do that and then install Omega.

    I dunno about the performance....but this driver literally broke the game for me.
    My menu and HUD is all sort of bugged now... bought into this hype as well.

    First post ever, just writting to confirm that I get (during a quick 30min play) at least 10FPS more with the new driver, computer specs:

    CPU: Core i5 3570k
    GPU Radeon HD 7970 GHz 3GB
    RAM: 16GB
    SSD: Crucial MX100 256GB

    Game configuration:

    Resolution: 1920x1080
    Env. Quality: Ultra High
    Textures: Ultra High
    Shadows: High (PCSS gives me a 10FPS hit)
    Amb. Occlusion: SSAO (+HBAO used to make no difference now it's giving me a few FPS hit (between 3 and 5))
    AA: FXAA (MSAAx2 gives me a massive hit, going from 40+ FPS to 18FPS in the same spot)
    Bloom: On

    Now I can walk near Cafe Theatre without any problems, even there it's working fluidly...

    Edit: Added resolution

    Nope, I used to get 16fps around the Cite there and now I'm getting 35-45fps.

    I can confirm a massive boost using this driver. (omega driver is the official 14.12 driver found here http://support.amd.com/en-us/download)

    Running the game using i5 2500k at 4.2GHz and an overclocked 7970 3GB card, with 1080p, Ultra high environments and textures, high shadows, SSAO and FXAA and bloom on.

    Before the new driver it would drop below 20 fps standing at the fountain outside your office or at Notre Dame. Now it's 40fps at those places and mostly around 50fps in non problem areas. So maybe constant 60 fps or near is possible with patch 4 after all.
