AMD Working to Fix MSI R9 390 Driver Crashing Issues
Earlier this week, various users of MSI Radeon R9 390 graphics card started reporting unpleasant card crash issues when they attempted to update drivers to the latest AMD Catalyst 15.7.
According to different reports surfacing online, games like The Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, and GTA V running on the R9 390, experience random crashing and some occasional stuttering. When crashing would occur, the game either locks out or results in giving a black screen error.
Each time when this happens, the user needs to remove the card, plug in the Intel HD graphics, wipe the drivers, and then reinstall the card with the MSI provided drivers. Which is, no doubt, catastrophic frustration for any user.
AMD has finally addressed the crashing issues with the R9 390, saying it is currently working on a fix.
“Just to let you know we’re aware and are investigating this particular crashing issue with the 390 cards. As soon as i have a further update on the issue, I’ll let you all know,” @amdmatt, a technical support engineer, posted this morning to the AMD forums.
Meanwhile, he suggested users of the R7 and R9 300 series (and the Fury X) to download and use Catalyst 15.5 drivers.
