Driver related:

1. For those wish ot install Preview Driver for BFB3, download and install Catalyst 11.10 Version 3 but do not install CAP. If you did, uninstall the CAP.

Download link: Catalyst 11.10 Ver 3

Download link: Catalyst 11.10 Ver 2

http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/Catalyst-Hotfixes.aspx


Additional info on CAP go here for Von Dach Mod AMD Catalyst Von Modded (v7)


2. Disable UAC. Go to Control Panel > User Accounts > change User Account Control Settings > move the slider to bottom > restart PC.


3. If it doesn't work for you,

Install latest WHQL Catalyst 11.10 + 11.9 CAP4. Link http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/pages/radeon_win7-64.aspx#1


Catalyst 11.9 CAP 4 Download http://www.mediafire.com/?ubigei69i8um269

BF3 Stuttering is fixed for me now, if you don't get crossfire on the first run: just do alt-tab.


4. To clean up traces of previous drivers use this:

Atiman Uninstaller v.6.1.2 Download LINK (Run it with administrator privilege. Some antivirus software will give a false positive. Let it restarts to complete the uninstallation).

ATIMAN Uninstaller v.6.1.3 Link

How to remove previous - hidden cards from system.

1. Right-click My Computer and select Properties.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Click on Environment Variables.
4. Below the bottom Environment Variables window panel (System Variables), click on New.
5. For Variable Name, enter devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices
6. For Variable Value, enter 1
7. Click OK to close Environment Variables and OK again to close System Properties.
8. Open Device Manager, click on View and then select Show hidden devices from the menu. You can identify the hidden devices by their grayed-out icons.
9. Go to the Display adapters and show your old cards. Right-click the selected card and choose "Uninstall" driver on every one.
10. Restart.

5. For Crossfire Users and running Afterburner, disable ULPS.

To disable ULPS:

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

Note:

Punkbuster BFBC2 + Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 8 = CRASH

Disable "Enable Low Level Hardware Access" by disabling "Unlock Voltage Control". But you will not have the voltage tweak if you need to raise the stock voltage.

There's another way, rename RTCore.cfg:

1. Install the latest MSI Afterburner but not running.
2. Go to the MSI Directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\...)
3. Find the file "RTCore.cfg".
4. Rename this file to anything you like "RTCorewhatever.cfg".
5. Run MSI Afterburner and configure it as you normally would.

For both Disabling "Enable Low Level Hardware Access" and renaming RTCore; will break the real time monitoring that MSI Afterburner provides. This is just a work around to prevent carsh with Punkbuster, so there's the trade-off.

#3 doesn't work very well. I suggest using. Cap 2 only. It's smothed out my game 10 fold.
post #3 of 70
Very nice, I'll test it out for BFBC2 + Afterburner.

If it only happens to BF3, reinstall or repair might fix it.

I removed Caps 3 and disabled Hyperthreading and it is really smooth now. Try that as well. In single screen on max settings I am seeing from 60-83fps on Caspian boarder. At eyefinity res it is not playable at max settings or high settings with 2 or 4x MSAA.

HAve you disabled your onboard audio device since you are running the XFI titanium? That may be causing it. Do it in the bios I think or you can do it in control panel and disable onboard sound. That may help.
