Skyrim UNPLAYABLE on 6950- Help?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 2 Sapphire 6950's in crossfire and have tried everything I can think of but cannot get out of being stuck at 10-20 fps average. Things I've tried:

1. Run in crossfire w/ skyrims AA settings
2. Run in crossfire w/ CCC AA settings override
3. Run single card w/ skyrims AA settings
4. Run single card w/ CCC AA settings
5. Run each of these configurations at "medium" rather than "ultra"

With each of these different runs I'm stuck at 10-20 fps and the game runs like poo. I'm so disappointed this is happening to me when I was so excited to play this all day.

I know most people will just say "wait for driver release" or something like that, but my case seems to be unusual. Everywhere I read on the internet, others with 6950's are getting 60+ but their issues are merely stuttering; not constant low fps like mine. Should I be worried? P.S. I run bf3 at constant 60-70 so I know the cards are not the issue.

Any advice would be awesome. Thanks! P.P.S. I tried downloading that file from ghost23's post but it didn't work.

What programs do you have running in the background? Do you have an unstable OC? Possible bottleneck on the CPU?

Nothing Running but Fraps. And no my OC is very stable, I haven't touched it in months either. And I highly doubt my cpu would cause THAT bad of a horrendous bottleneck. I mean if BF3 runs perfect with my cpu there's no reason skyrim would be complete **** because of it.

and yes that's why I wrote that I tried downloading the file he suggested, but it didn't work.
