BF3 Crossfire Issues! - Page 14

post #131 of 158
Just came to rub it in a little and say my 6950 CF is working in Eyefinity with 11.10 and CAP4. wink.gif ~90% scaling and both GPUs at 99% usage. The game does stutter though if I don't set an fps cap. The same oddly doesn't happen at 1080p resolution.

To the people suggesting we are CPU bound, I dont think so.

Eyefinity dosent work more than 2 mins, so I have spare screens while I game on 1. I have a CPU monitoring program open and I can see the usage while I play. Across 8 threads, they are all mostly even at 65-70% usage.
Seems to me I have a heap of headroom left.
Sounds like v-sync is enabled to me.

How are people going with cap4 and official 11.10 drivers?

It hasnt fixed anything for me, im still stuck at around 60% gpu usage, with cpu up around 90%.. im getting pretty crap fps on high (aa off, hbao off etc), getting around 30fps in places, it does jump around to high 80's in parts but its really noticeable on tehran highway and sirene crossing, those maps give me horrid performance. Frustrating to say the least, im guessing its going to be an issue for patch's / amd drivers, as BC2 etc dont have this problem.

Edit: Going to try 11.9 tonight, i havnt tried it, and from what i read its giving better performance for a lot of people..

DITTO! Except for the stuttering part

I've got the exact same problem as you do. I thought it was my CPU bottlenecking my CF setup, but you've got a much better CPU and still have the same problem. I am running 2 5870s on high and although my FPS are between 60 and 90, my CPU usage is around 97% and both GPUs are at 55-60%. Maybe I'll hold off on purchasing a new CPU.

daniyarm, I wouldn't expect much more GPU utilization from that CPU. A single 5870 by it's self is almost able to max out a Phenom II.

My 5770's nearly maxed out my X4 965, and Crossfired 5770's are very close in performance to a 5850-5870.

I agree with you that I still need a new CPU, but it's just strange that the other guy has OCed 2500k and still has the same problem that I do.

I uninstalled the previous drivers and cap, ran driver sweeper to catch anything i missed. Next I installed the 11.10 Driver with Cap 4. Before i play the game i disable CCC.exe and MOM.exe in task manager. In the game I enable Vert sink.

With all this i can play the game at max settings with about 60 fps most of the time.

This game still has issues with eyefinity. For now just playing on single monitor.

I have 2 XFX Radeon 6870

My cards are OC at 980 Mhz Core and 1200 Mhz Mem with voltage at 1.25

I use MSI afterburner to do the card OC (MB will not let me up the voltage on the cards). In MB BIOS turned up the PCI frequency (Stock 100) to 135.

Temp never gets above 78 c with stock cooler and auto fan.
