Just built a new PC today for my sister. Downloaded skyrim to test it and seemed to work great but sometimes when you look around the game will like tear. You can see it happen a lot if you look straight up into the sky, it's really fast, pops up for a millisecond and it's gone, it's also different every time it does it. But I managed to get some screenshots.

XFX R7870 Core Edition





I'm going to install a couple more games and try them out and see how it goes. Anybody think it's an issue with the card it's self or maybe a driver/game issue?

you can always try the latest 12.11b8 as i am pretty sure they have some skyrim fixes since 12.11b

see if that fixes your issue smile.gif

Tried 12.11Beta and it didn't work unfortunately, however it wasn't as bad. I found online though that some people tried 12.8 and 12.6 and it fixed the problem for them. I tried 12.8 and it made it way worse and 12.6 ended up fixing it.

cool, happy you have it sorted. took a bit of trail and error with drivers tho biggrin.gif

also you should report what issues you are having here with the 12.11b drivers

thacks our AMD HW rep is reporting peoples problems to the driver developer teams so they can sort them in for future releases smile.gif
