i am sick of 30fps.. i feel ripped off, i should be seeing double-tripple this.. damn you EA/DICE/AMD.. sort your shiz out. Whats more frustrating is that there are other people that have no issues using the exact same catalyst/caps. how is this possible?

Unfortunately yes
(Or at least for me, it may or may not be different for you)

Unfourtently it has no effect for me i still get the same crap performance.. it rarely goes over 30% usage, which funnily enough gives me 30fps.. if im out in the boondocks with bugger all happening it will go to about 40-50% and ill be getting around 50-60fps..
really strange problem.. just wish i was getting good performance!

id rather not.. it only does it for this game, bad company 2, crysis 2, dirt3, heaven benchmark.. all run fine and i get 90+% usage across both cards.. its a BF3/driver problem as far as im aware.

Negative scaling all the way for for me, there was a slight positive scaling on the preview driver specifically for BF3 (11.11 preview 3?).

This trick did not work on my setup, what however does work is alt+tab out to windows and back into the game. However this does (on my particular setup) return the game in 1080p 24hz ,
in other words unplayable. I prefer gaming in 720p120hz and when I try to revert the resolution to either 720p50/60/120hz it seems to go back to negative scaling mode with severe fps drops to b00t.

Playing with 1xhd6950@720p is "ok" with dips down to 35fps and averaging around 50-55fps maxing around 140fps on the big conquest maps (kharg,caspian,firestorm).

This is my third crossfire setup and my last, crossfire is getting progressively worse and I do not recommend anyone buying sli/crossfire setups if you want to spend your time gaming
instead of forums.

Using perfoverlayenable my cpu is at 20% avg with crossfire enabled, so there is definitively a problem.
