AMD driver 16.150.2211.0

Anyone using this new driver? I just tried updating but I'm seeing terrible shares reported from nanopool compared to before. Not been long enough to know for sure yet but has anyone else tried it or are people sticking with 15.12 mostly?

    Its been mentioned a million times here. 15.12 is best. 16 and up doesn't work well with mining. Please search next time.

    It was a brand new version, not the 16.x people had previously rejected. I wouldn't assume a new one is no good. I searched for the exact version string and it hadn't appeared before.

    Afaik 16.3 is the only known problematic one. 16.2 and 16.1 work okay. If there is a newer driver now, test it out and let us know!

    I will stick with 15.12 for safety!

    I'm actually mining with this very same version (well, at least that's what is stated in Device Manager, while in both Radeon Software Crimson Edition and MSI Afterburner is stated as Crimson 16.3.2). I'm getting stable hashrates (~18.25MH/s) with HIS R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E DLDVI-I/HDMI/2xMini DP (undervolted and overclocked through MSI Afterburner - core clock @1060 MHz, memory clock @1600 MHz, mV @1131, although the official website weirdly states as 6000 MHz of memory clock). I'm using Windows 10 64 Bits and NiceHash Miner v1.6.1.0. I think I should get more hashrates with a typical R9 280x, though, but I couldn't go any further - perhaps because I'm not using Crimson 15.12? I expect less power consumption, at least. I'm anxiously waiting for my Kill a Watt to come.
