Do you know if this fixes the TDR crash in BF4 when running in Mantle mode?

That's not the same issue that was affecting BF4 in 15.7.

I went ahead and installed 15.8 so I guess I'll know soon enough whether it was fixed.

EDIT: Just played three maps over the course of 1.5 hours and no crash, so that's a good sign.

Crossing fingers this will fix my Crossfire issues in Win10 with my 6950s, but I'm not going to be surprised when it doesn't.

WarSam:

I have 3 Dell 24" 1900x1200 monitors. They are slightly mismatched, one is a 2407WFP-HC and the others are U2410s.

Bezel compensation has not worked in Eyefinity in any of the 2015 drivers. It last worked in 14.12 OMEGA under Windows 8.1.

If you recall, the feature to support bezel comp on mismatched monitors was released in CCC 11.10.
I've reported this issue several times via the official support avenues.

Yay! Zero Core works again on my R9 280x cards. VSR also works, awesome!

Edit: nevermind Zero Core still doesn't work properly Win 10-64. It kicks in only sometimes, other times both cores stay at 300mhz and confirmed ULPS is selected as active.

I'm going to have to go back to 15.7.1, I'm getting red screen crashes in Dragon Age Inquisition with a BenQ 144hz Freesync screen and an R9 380, I do not get any crashes with my old 120hz non-Freesync monitor though.
