Low GPU clock in games

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Something tells me this isn't normal. This is my second 4890 in crossfire while in the middle of BF3.

Does anyone know if it's done or is there anything I can do to fix it?

Not really an AMD GPU expert, but looks like it's simply not clocking up from power saving state. Usually just a driver issue. Driver sweeper and a fresh driver install fixed similar problems for me in the past.

Yeah that's what it looks like. It maxes out at 500mhz while I'm playing and I've already used a drive sweeper. Couple it be a power issue?

Try this version:

1. Catalyst 11.9
2. Catalyst 11.8 CAP5

Edit:

If you overclock using Afterburner, disable ULPS http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=327291

I had 11.9 with the cap1 profiles and it was doing the same thing. I have a feeling this has been going on for a while I just haven't played a game demanding enough to notice it. I'm going to just run the GPU in question alone and see what it does.

It's actually a reference design and GPUTool brings up the voltage options. The card runs fine by itself. Does that mean my PSU isn't powerful enough?

The card runs alright by itself but when its the primary card I cant even start bf3. I'm just going to get a fresh install of windows tomorrow and see if I can get lucky.

No it is your card that is not stable and can't start BF3. Fresh OS install might not solve it.

You can try this if you want.

Clean it with Atiman Uninstaller v.6.0.0.msi. Download LINK

Run it with administrator privilege. Some antivirus software will give false alarm but it is just a false positive.

Then install Catalyst 11.9 + ( Catalyst 11.8 CAP5 http://www.overclock.net/ati-drivers...11-8-cap5.html only if you are crossfire).

Disable ULPS http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/667...ling-ulps.html

During Catalyst install, if you get any error messages, ignore it and let it complete. Restart PC, then go to folder where the files extracted/unzipped to, find in CCC2 **.exe then perform repair.

Skip the step which is not applicable to you.
