Still doesn't fix Wattman and it's clock bug. Honestly pretty sad. Vega is a good solid performer but these bugs are just killing it more.Quote

Wow... no word on adding Crossfire for Vega? I would understand if the crossfire performance was bad, but not to have the option available in the crimson control panel is disappointing. My second card is basically just a bookstand right now (unless I use it for mining).Quote

Put it this way; dual GPUs in this day and age are like having the clap. Avoid it like you would avoid the bubonic plague.Quote
