Hello! I have recently had a power surge, which basically ruined my GTX 980's RAMDAC and it's soon going to be bought by someone for $300 (because Ethereum inflated prices - also mine is the lowest price on the Romanian market anyway). And, since I can't buy a GTX 980 Ti, because it's too expensive, or a 970 because too weak, I was looking forward to an R9 290X, which I found for $250. Of course, I didn't forget my older experiences with the AMD drivers, so I came here to ask: how are the Crimson drivers after almost 2 years of developement? Are they improving the performance by some margins? Are they more stable? How is OpenGL performance, any better?
If someone has an R9 290X on Windows 8.1, your reply would be appreciated a lot. If not, your reply is appreciated anyway, because I expect similar results. So, any reply regarding the 17.7 or 17.8 (if they exist) drivers are welcome and needed.
