This is a serious issue.
In my case, since I have a dual card (6990), I can't disable xfire and play it normally.

Sure, I can play the game. But I play it mostly on high, aa disabled (fxaa only), shadows quality medium...

I can get constant 60fps then... but...

Not acceptable for a u$ 700 videocard.

For that, I could be playing on my crappy 360 or ps3.

So, for those of you calling it whining, I disagree. It should've been addressed already.

My 2 cents.

Use, 11.11a it disables crossfire on CF setup's including Dual GPU cards. Example:

40 FPS is the lowest drop I have seen using only one of my GPU's (5970) which would come out to be a single downclocked 5870. Which isn't even being fully utilized as you can see:

Most of the time the game runs at a solid 60 FPS not even using more than 70% of one 5870 GPU:

tesv20111123010211051.png

So goes to show that for Skyrim a single 5870 is more than enough, and I play it at max settings with my sig rig FXAA ON, no AA whatsoever.

As for the 40 fps drops, that's just pure unoptimized drivers on AMD's side, we will just have to wait till what 11.12 has to offer.

I'd much rather not have to worry about quicksaving literally every 5 minutes because a crash is inevitable. Even with the LAA installed -

I've played nearly 60hrs now and I've never had a single CTD.

If your refering to:
http://benchmark3d.com/amd-catalyst-11-11-vs-11-11a-vs-11-12-beta-benchmark'

For one that was a BETA driver, also if you notice their GPU was a single 1GB 6950.

Correct me if I'm wrong, again Im assuming your referring to THAT Guru3d benches.
