Rage Crossfire support

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
When i check GPU usage while RAGE is open, i see that only one of my GPUs is utilized. I thought latest AMD driver comes with RAGE optimizations...

Catalyst 10.10 installed
Application 11.9 CAP3 installed

And RAGE is patched as well.

It's ridiculous, I get 20FPS, stutter, and texture popin with crossfire enabled on my 6950s (and it only uses one card).
With crossfire disabled, I get a smooth 60FPS, no stutter or texture popin.
So every time I want to play Rage, I have to go into the CCC and disable crossfire, what a pain. I'm using catalyst 11.10 preview version 3.

Definitely a huge pain, but at least it runs well with 1 card...

I have the same problem with F1 2011.... So I just play F1 2010, since it's the same engine smile.gif

from what i have seen RAGE is more CPU incentive than anything, with crossfire disabled my 5770 is usually around like 40-65% while my processor is slammed at 100%

Yes true. I also noticed that it also takes up a solid 2GB in the system memory. So my guess is that it should help to have at least 6 or 8GB fast kit with decent timings.

And RAGE is patched as well.

The only Rage driver upgrade is AMD Catalyst™ - Rage Performance Driver released on October 4, 2011.

It updates very old OpenGL files which were responsible for the corruption/tearing AMD cards were suffering.

The only problem with two cards is not all games support it. Good news though is less and less games however take this path, as developers realize the benefit of suporting this feature to increase sales and specifically to hardcore PC gamers that demand maxed setting performance.

I have a feeling it will eventually, but I'm speculating. For the most part in Rage it's not really needed to have two cards to run at high settings anyway. biggrin.gif

Edited to add: I just noticed your rig is called 'GTX 580 killer', thanks....it feels good to know the card one owns is what others try to compare two cards too. Says alot about my one card, can't wait to SLI it. tongue.gif

I was about to buy a 580 as well but then i noticed that pairing 6870 actually gives me a lot more performance so went that way.

SLI your 580 all you want, i'm gonna get me a brand new 7970 this february matey! And i might name my rig "SLI 580 killer" after then tongue.gif
