I had a mountain of issues with X-fire... I've resolved them but it was a total nightmare.

1. Windows: I've never used more than 500MB for my Windows Virtual Memory. Without Crossfire enabled this was not an issue, however for BF3 a low VMem setting results in countless crashes to the desktop due to memory errors. I increased virtual memory from 500mb to 3gb and I haven't had the CTD memory errors since.

Note: I have 8gbs of ram and 2 Radeon 6950s with 2gb of vram each but BF3 for some reason needs Virtual memory... Poor programming.

2. Download and install ATIMan Uninstaller V.6 here: http://www.mediafire.com/?76yfas13pwcnhq6

Uninstall ALL ATI software and manually uninstall CAP. Then run ATIman uninstaller.

3. After ATIman finishes wiping all your old driver data and rebooting install Catalyst 11.10 Preview 3 (Google it).

4. Install Cap4 (thanks for posting it Glycerin). http://www.rage3d.com/cap/

Note: Cap 4 is installed and seems to be working well. No issues with it.

5. I think the really important detail here is to run ATIMan uninstaller because no matter what I tried I couldn't get it working until I used ATIMan. My OS image is over 2 years old now and I've installed a ton of old Cat Drivers.

Performance Summary:

I've been playing for over 3 hours without a single crash running FRAPS. I'm running two soft modded Radeon 6950 > 6970s. Framerates with Ultra preset and 2xAA/High AAA are usually around 100 and NEVER below 60. The game looks spectacular. I'm VERY picky about frame rate or I could easily run the Ultra preset but ballistic scope is a REAL FPS whore. I'm convinced something is wrong with scope frame rates in BF3. I also think the drivers have a LOT of room for performance improvement still.

Hope this helps.

PC:
Asus P8P67pro
Core I5 2500k @ 4.4ghz
2x Radeon 6950>6970 softmod
8gb PC1333
Intel X25m g2 80gb
WIndows 7 x64

EDIT: CAP4 thread at Hardforum... people liking it so far.

My anti-virus picked up the ATIMan Uninstaller file. Anyone else?

I actually had a few crashes during the game but since I noticed that my 2nd card got really hot I just crank the fan up and never have any issue ever since. And this is with preview driver 11.10 preview driver ver 3, haven't tried CAP 4 yet but I'm installing it now, heard it helps to increase performance and reduce the microstuttering issue.

I am new to the site and new to crossfiring. I seem to only get 60fps with a mild oc on my 6950's in BF3.. Is this too low? I am runnign 1920 x 1080 in Ultra, everything maxed.
I am using Fraps for fps, and max temps my GPU's see is 65C on 1 and 53C on the other.

XFX 6950s unlocked as well.

I am running 11.10 with Cap 3.

you probably have vsync on, this limits your max fps to 60 to match your screen. you can turn vsync off to test, then turn it back on when youre done

Thanks you are probably right, i will try this when i get home.. Fraps was showing SOLID 60fps.. ever less, never more. I will install cap4 and see the difference between the 2.

Wow, CAP4 made things much smoother for me. I didn't think I was having issues, but this made things buttery!

At 1920x1080 with everything maxed I was seeing 60-80fps on Caspian which seems to be more demanding than other maps. I did not test on other maps or in single player. In eyefinity it was not playable maxed. FPS was in the low 20's
