6990 Eyefinity help PLEASE.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Morning Ocn

Ok, here's the deal. I have 3 480's in Surround. A friend of mine had a Asus 5870 1gb. He wanted to get eyefinity and play on 3 screens too. He got 3 1080p lcd's. We hooked it up and he was getting ok performance. Crysis 2, around 30-40 fps at 4800x900 high settings. I told him he needed more GPU power. So he said ok. I sold his 5870 for $250.

his situation is, he has a Corsair TX650 with 2 6+2pin Pci-E. So there's only a few options available. the 6850's have 1 6pin. I looked at some reviews and seen the fps for 6970, CF 6850's, and 6990. Looked like the 6850's in CF was a lot faster than a single 6970. So we started there.

2 6850's for $180 each. $360 total (-$250 old 5870) paid $110. performance was way better than single 5870. Crysis 2 was now getting 45-55fps @ 4800x900 Very high settings. There was a little lag/delay on the mouse movement in multi-player. BBC2 was playing very well 50-60fps @ 4800x900. He didn't like the delay, so we started thinking of a different option.

The single 6970 for $350, a $100 more than the 5870 sold for $250. Then we talked and he mentioned going for the win and getting a 6990 and being good for a long while. I was surprised that he wanted to go that route, but said he should be real good in eyefinity with dual 6970 2gb cards in one(6990). That should be plenty of power. So he paid $810 after tax and got it. So now he's at $810-$250 for $560 more than before. We set it up last night and started testing.

Now Crysis 2 was getting 40-50 fps at the 4800x900 Very high settings. Worst than the 2 6850's .. ***!! We started overclocking to see what happened, and not much. I haven't had any experience with Eyefinity yet, so I'm not sure of the tweaks and tips he can try. Something seem like it's not right. I would think he would get a lot more performance out of that thing.

After a while of testing, I went home and fired up my rig in surround and said let's do some in game comparing. We both started up Crysis 2 and set our settings the same. 5760x1080, Very High setting, V-sync off.

my fps 100-120
his fps 40-46

Then BBC2
my fps 70-80
his fps 50-60 not as bad

Dirt 2
my fps 100-115
his 40-60

I think that something on his end isn't working right. There has to be more power in that 6990 than this.

His system is a P6T deluxe X58 with a i7 950 @ 4.2ghz Ht on, 2 80gig ssd's in raid 0

Anyone have any idea's or tips for us?

If you have vsync enabled in those games then thats whats causing the mouse lag.

we have had V-sync off for now just for testing. I'd like to know how far above 60 we are getting, but that isn't happening yet

Anyone running a 6990 and playing Crysis 2 in Eyefinity?

I'm pretty sure the mouse lag is just low fps. If we turn off eyefinity and run 1920x1080 it's butter smooth

Download 11.5 and the profiles of 11.4 from AMD, turn CrossFireX on and make sure the PSU is enough.

Here is what I could fine for a Crysis 2 demo. Has both Eyefinity and normal res comparing the 6990.

gpu-z shows crossfire enabled. There's no setting or tab to turn it on and off with a 6990.

I just looked at that review, 26fps avg. I don't see how a 6850 1gb in crossfire can have a avg of 45-50 and a 6990 is 26. That makes no sense. I will take the 6990 back in a heart beat if that's the case.

Hey, what are you using for overclocking. I see your at 985/1400. You using Msi AB?
