After 14 months 12 bugs fixed in single instance and only 8 known to go. It is just a month until they release new cards. I hope 6000 cards won't have the same driver issue.Quote

Aren't only two of these big fixes relating to 5000 series? Most of the new bugs come and go with new games and Windows versions. Often AMD do several fixes a month and bi-yearly super stable WHQL drivers, the WHQL ones last April fixed most remaining 5000 bugs.Quote
