Sapphire TOXIC HD-6950/70 Owners Club & Informational Thread - Page 46

post #451 of 1648
sorry i was wrong with my previous post. the command i was talking about is for enabling more than 2 cores in the game engine. the command is "+fullproc". this is the readme that came with the tweaked ini:

"This is set of pre-tweaked TES: Skyrim.ini & Skyrimprefs.ini (C:\Users\"PC Name"\Documents\My Games\Skyrim) to max the game's detail settings whilst minimising the fps drop.

I recommend take out of it what you would like to utilize, and putting it in your own ini.

But if you would like to just place it in place of your own one, the only thing you need to edit is your GPU adapter, change sD3DDevice="AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series " to sD3DDevice="and include your own GPU indentifier ", which can be found by typing dxdiag into windows search and in the display tab, see your adapter name, and use that.





Also, to utilize more of your CPU's power, you can also use the .exe launcher tweak.

If running the game through steam:

1: Right-click the steam taskbar icon (bottem right by your clock, network icon), and click library.
2: scroll to Skyrim, and right click it. Then go to properties.
3: In the general tab, click 'set launcher options' and in the text field type +fullproc and click ok.

If running the game locally, without steam:

1: Right-click the desktop shortcut, and go to properties.
2: In the target field (should have something similar to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\SkyrimLauncher.exe" click the end of the string, (after the .exe") and press the space bar, and type +fullproc.
3: click apply and exit."

Well, it looks like my card is idle between 35-37C and when gaming 55-59C with my case fans turned up about 85%...I am pretty happy with that.

I also checked to see if the card was throttling while gaming and that does not seem to be happening...I pushed it up to 900/1400 without having to adjust +20% in CCC.

The only question I have is how to use this card with virtue via the z68 HDMI port (cant remember if that is i mode or d mode)...If I do not plug the monitor into the video card and have the onboard video start first, I get a driver error message from CCC and the card stays in low power mode and will not take OC settings.

Didn't get the rebate YET, but you can check the status online ... http://sapphire.4myrebate.com/?oc=ALT-5372 ... mine says it's been approved, but they tell you it could take 8-10 weeks, unless you selected the NO WAIT Option ... but if I recall that lowered the rebate amount or something if you selected that option ?
