Why does Crysis 2 not work well with AMD?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Some people say that AMD Drivers for their GPU's suck and that Crysis 2 doesn't work well with their GPU's. Is that true? If so, why is that? I'm asking this because I'm going to move to AMD GPU's.

Drive 11.8 that was released today adds 20% performance improvement for the 69xx series cards. I get about 30 - 60fps on Crysis 2 ultra dx11 with high res pack. It doesnt like overclocked GPU's very much though, or atleast mine. It locks up sometimes!

AMD's driver's don't suck, what you're seeing is the Complaining or the non-existent fanboys(Who don't own AMD or Claim they do) making claims about driver problems. Both camps have issue I personally have been to both sides, and notice no problem with AMD/Nvidia,(EVEN THOUGH Nvidia did kill my card a couple years ago) but on my 6950 XFire I'm always playing games Maxed out on my eyefinity setup with 60+ FPS.

As for Crysis 2 this apparently has something to do with as reported before hand:

Don't have or play Crysis 2 so can't comment on truly if this hold any truth.

CCC shows 11.7 is the latest? Updated on the 16th does it take a while to be pushed through to the control centre? or might be just cause i have a 68xx

The game runs butter smooth until my object setting is on ultra while DX11 is on. Then it tanks. So I don't know how some of you with 68xx cards are doing it. I call bull ****. I get like 60+ with everything on ultra accept DX11 and as soon as I turn on ultra object with DX11 it tanks to like 20 frames.
