Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 (possible driver issue?) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok so iv found out i have the same problem in both Skyrim and Dirt 3 but not Crysis 2......could the problem be direct X related?

It seems crysis 2 also crashes if i set the speeds to 1000/1250...my mistake im thinking about returning it and getting a Nvidia this is ridiculous

It means the overclock is unstable and not related to drivers version. Maybe you need to increase the voltage and adjust the clocks. Watch out for temperature too.

 

 

I meant what card you had in the system with current OS prior to 6870?

 

In the search type 'dxdiag' and if it shows 6870?

This is a newly built system i typed 'dxdiag' and it says 6800 series, this is a factory overclock? Why would i have to increase voltage.....woild it void the warranty?

I think you are correct sir haha, i just did a bit of testing running the card at 960/1110mhz (stock is 900/1050mhz) instead of 1000/1250(max factory overclock) and it was stable in skyrim on ultra with max AA and AF, no crashing in Crysis 2 and Dirt 3 as well, i will do more testing tonight and let you guys know.
