Slowdown after ~30 minutes of gameplay

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
As the title says,

I'm having slow down after 30 or so minutes of game play across the board.

I'm running:

6970 + 6950 with 11.10 preview.

The temps seem within reason, 6970 hits high 70's, and the 6950 hits high 60s.

Starts off perfectly smooth, but after 30-45 minutes of game play I'll have greatly reduced frames.
:D

Happened to me a long time ago, ended up being a driver issue. I was on the 11.10 preview drivers and I had a lot of issues. I went back to 11.9 and now everything's fine.

I'd recommend uninstalling 11.10 and then going to 11.9 + the latest 11.9 profiles.

Figured as much, thanks!

You think it's a voltage issue?

If you crossfire and using Afterburner, you have to disable PowerTune from throttling down.

To disable ULPS (Ultra Low Power Saving):

1. Go to regedit (start > search programs and files > "regedit").
2. In drop down menu: find file > type "enableulps".
3. For ALL instances (keep pressing F3) change the "1" value to a "0".
4. Reboot PC.

I'm not using AfterBurner for anything besides in game monitoring.

In CCC, enable Overdrive, set PowerSetting +20%, click "apply" for both GPU and try again.
