    I updated the AMD catalyste driver and lost a lot of fps, i even experience lags now.

    I tried to go back but it seems that i don't have a restauration point for that.

    if you are using more than one monitors/Tv-s, and you playing single screen duplicated, try to go for borderless windowed mode ingame, it looks exactly the same as fullscreen (ofc only if your desktop resolution is the same as your ingame). it helped me

    I uploaded the gaming evo blabla software again and applied the performance mode.
    I have desactivate all the stuff that could have been processed with the graphic card and i'm back to 120 fps with R3E.:)

    i just updated my R9 280 3gig to Crimson 16.1 and it's probably the first time *ever* I've noticed an actual improvement in performance from a Radeon driver updating. Nothing spectacular but definitely less slow downs

    Set your ingame resolution and desktop resolution the same, in game choose windowed mode instead of full screen!
