The dual monitor bug that I found in 17.4.x is still present in this driver.

I noticed a small increase in Firestrike benchmark after installing on my Strix RX480. Any performance increase that costs me $0 is a good thing.

Dual monitors connected with DP. You get vastly lower FPS in games after reboot from driver installation. The work around is to unplug your second monitor and plug it back in.
Hmm strange haven't had any issues. I run 3x monitor with 2xDP 1xDVI. Is it only specific games or all? I'm using a Fury Nitro similar to your Tri-X.

I noticed it in Heroes of the Storm. I'm not playing much else atm.

Radeon WattMan may fail to apply settings on some Radeon R9 390 series graphics products.
It applies the settings now. But it still doesn't work properly.
They really shouldn't have bothered with Wattman on the 300 series if they were going to do this bad of a job. Back to 16.11.5 once again.

I still do not understand why you cannot have different hardware profiles in Global Wattman and you need to change the settings manually and one by one EVERYTIME

Meh, FH3 still having issues. Sent a bug report to AMD. Searched a bit and from other forums, many people have sent AMD reports. Hopefully they'll come around and fix it.
