    GPU enabled with 280X causes black colors in develop module




      Lightroom 6.2

      Windows 7


      Since upgrading to an AMD 280X (Old 6950 worked fine) I have black colors on photos in the develop module with the GPU enabled. It was also crashing on entering develop until the latest AMD drivers came out (required the manual process to disable GPU accel). Now I can turn it on an off without crashing at least.


      Without GPU enabled :

      Goto Preferences and Turn on GPU support - nothing else. Immediately I get this. Occurs on all photos from different cameras.

      Ouch and Help!  It looks like a color mapping / pallet issue but I can't seem to find anything to change it.


      Have rebuilt Windows 7 (for a different reason) - clean build installed Catalyst latest beta drivers "AMD-Catalyst-15.9.1Beta-64Bit-Win10-Win8.1-Win7-Sep30" and still have the problem.


      Lightroom also updated to 6.2 without any improvement.


      Any ideas
