Yeah, we really need to fix the timedemo feature and release a new benchmark. Then, hopefully, phrononix (etc) will use it and it'll put

pressure on AMD to improve their benchmark results. As long as there's no press about it, this will always be a low priority issue for them.

Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

(Yeah, shameless promotion... but traffic is traffic folks...)

Yep, we'd wanna convince tomshardware, anandtech, kitguru, hardocp, or hothardware to add this to their suite.

guru3d too.

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

No, I'm joking, it's really the same.

 

Ah, try to rename to "Wolf2MP" and you'll have MORE optimization than "DarkAthena" :D

 

GCN+Catalyst performance is really tied to profiling.....

Why not to try Brink, Wolfenstein 2009 MP, Quake 4 MP and see if any of those have even better optimizations ? (since all of those id Tech 4 based)

@Bikerdude: Do you think you can explain to AMD about 13.1 atioglxx.dll performance boost ? (if you can tell them about BFG engine, maybe it will give them better clues, since TDM doesn't have break down on timing for various subsystems)

Im hoping they will have created a new profile for us.

Wolf2MP is the MP exe of Wolfenstein 2009 :D

I'm testing, see before and this one below :D

 

Quake4MP.exe result: Quake4_MP.jpg

 

And the winner is Wolf2MP profile :P

They changed something in the new driver package (15.5).....now TDM performs differently in some areas.

In some areas worse (or maybe I miss something but my system and TDM have the same old settings.....and I deleted the AMD shader cache):

 

15.4 Wolf2MP

15.5 Wolf2MP (29-30 FPS vs 40)

Correct screnshot (With FPS OSD). And obviously the V-Sync is OFF.

      Deathloop – what a mess of a game. I'd love to see a post-mortem on it some day. I hope Arkane is doing okay though.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)
