I think its only limited to BF4 since I have upgraded to 16.9.1 I experienced a lot of crashes during load times of MP games and in between.

thats pretty sad considering bf 4 is heavily optimized for AMD cards even going as far to use mantle API. if powercolor and AMD support cant help me i will return ithe card to whence it came and buy a 1060 i suppose.

don't return it, instead try to get the RX 480 devil or the MSI or the sapphire nitro version of the RX 480.

Remember 16.9.1 is AMDs first WDDM 2.1 driver. Just like Nvidia there will be problems in the start.

It uses Mantle rather then heavily optimized :) if it was optimized for Mantle they could do a lot more stuff to make BF4 look a lot better. That is why DX11 with a fast cpu still out paces Mantle ...

If your playing BF4 with an AMD gpu, it is recommended (to my knowledge) that you use DX11 as Mantle support has ceased.
