Request for BF3 Issues/Fixes thread - Page 2

post #11 of 75
With my current sig rig I've been having nothing but trouble running BF3 with crossfire enabled. Here are a list of some of these issues:

1) When joining a multiplayer server, BF3 will pretty much stop loading and get stuck on a plain black screen. Sometimes even the cursor shows up but won't progress to the server. Ctrl + Alt + Del will restore back to the desktop but every now and than I'll get a BSOD as a result.

2) When the game does successfully load, the actual loading time takes FOREVER! I'm guessing up to 3-5 minutes sometimes. Towards the end of the loading process I will start hearing in-game noise and at a snails pace it makes its way into the deploy menu.

3) So when I finally make it into a server the gameplay runs as smooth as butter. But slowly after about 5 minutes or so, my performance starts to degrade. My FPS will jump up and down eventually getting to the point where its too choppy to play.

All these issues happen in the single player as well. When disabling crossfire, none of these issues pop up but a huge loss in FPS compared to running the 2nd card. Here is what I've tried with no prevail.

-11.10 preview 3 + Caps 4
-11.10 preview 3 (No caps)
-11.10 preview 3 + Caps 3
-11.9 (No Caps)
-11.9 + Caps 3

-Set GPU OC back to default

Close
-MSI Afterburner
-CCC

I'm hope this all gets resolved with a driver update but until than it's driving me NUTS! The game is pure awesomeness & at this point I'm debating on selling these 6870's and pick up a powerful single GPU just to get some hours in. PLEASE HELP!!!

Do not run CAP with Preview drivers.

I went from 11.10 Preview 3 to 11.9 + CAP4.

It is actually way smoother gameplay now.

Glad I'm not the only one with these issues. I've tried 11.10 Preview 3 (no cap, cap 3, cap 4), and it just seems as though there's a huge memory leak. After 5-10 minutes of playing, I lose about 15-20 FPS for no apparent reason.

Not that I'm happy about it but it is a relief to know others are experiencing similar problems. Sure hope they release some new drivers sooner than later!

Wow.. I just realized we are using the exact same motherboard (and also using crossfire). Wonder if it's setup specific?

Could be possible but based off what I've read, others are having very similar problems on completely different setups. Sure hope it's not our boards though

Yeah, for sure. Lots of people are reporting the same issues with different setups. Just interesting that we almost have the exact same issues with similar setups.
