I think you mistook what I meant was wrong with the photo. I know you can see your team mates icons. I meant look at the artefacts around the gun, the corrupted shadows, the pixels inside the sight. The diagonal lines along the inside of the top lip on the dumpster (more visible in motion) were not there weeks ago. Now they are. It happens in a lot of games too. But, after testing out another system, I can't fault my card. I almost want to, so that at least I know what it is and I can send it for repair, however painful that will be again being without my card for a month. It seems as if all shadows are not being rendered properly. But benchmarks are as high as they always are, it's just the visual corruption I notice and am sure is not right.

Its the game not the card. Same thing happens when using different cards.

I dont know why but my installer keeps freezing while installing the catalyst install manager. Now it seems I cant install any graphics drivers at all. I had it working fine before. Anyone else run into this issue?

EDIT: After some swearing and threats I got 12.6 working. Tested on metro and it plays smooth. Havent checked BF3 yet. Now my only issue seems to be that I cannot install any CAPS. Tried 12.6 and 12.7 they always freeze up on the last part of the initializing the msi package. Im not too sure what to do from here. Id like to enjoy 12.7 like other users but the ***** simply wouldnt install.

I have a very interesting problem:

I have an XFX 7950 Double D black edition, completely stock settings. When I play after a cold boot, complete video domination. Excellent FPS and rendering. However, after I put my computer to sleep, then wake it, complete loss of speed on the video card. I go say from ~60 FPS in a benchmark tool, to 10-15. This happens with any game or benchmarking tool I try.

A few things to note.

1) Brand new computer build
2) Completely new install of Windows 7, Power Management set on High Performance
3) AMD Catalyst 12.6 drivers

System Specs:

AsRock Fata1ity 990FX
AMD 1100t overclocked to 4000Mhz
16gb Gskill 1600 Ripjaws
Samsung 830 256 ssd
HAF X Case
CoolerMaster 675 watt PSU

Other than the monitor going to sleep and never waking up, I didn't seem to locate this sleep type issue in this thread. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Here's a little taste of the improvement the 12.7 beta brings vs. 12.4 WHQL (at least in Heaven 3.0). I hadn't updated drivers since 12.4 but 12.7 sounded very promising and it looks like it's well worth it.

Heaven Benchmark 3.0

XFX "Black Edition" 7970
Core = 1228MHz @ 1274mV
Mem = 1700MHz @ 1600mV

1116 Scores 1343

The 7970's have done very well in Heaven 3.0 so far. How much of an increase have you seen in 3dmark11???

RC11 is faster for multigpu. All these new drivers have forsaken multigpu. mad.gif

I do not use eyefinity so I know my experience is a bit different than urs but I will say, if you ignore benchmarks (you and I know how horrid trifire has been in these recent drivers for 3dmark and heaven) I find that the game play for a number of titles has improved greatly over the past few releases.

Also, how has your overclock fared with these new driver?

Overclock? I prefer the clock control from rc11 tbh. 12.4 and up have issues with AB dropping clocks down to low power idle states. It's annoying that half the time I'm forced to run 3 of my 4 cards at full mem speed, that's for sure. As far as overclock, the new drivers by their poorer performance pretty much kills the overclock. I've lost my overclock. What I could achieve at a medium overclock, 1200/1600 on rc11 now equals a full on max overclock on 12.6+ in heaven bench. I love me some heaven because it actually taxes my system similar to bf3 (note it's still far from the harshness of bf3*), and it for me at least puts a hurting on my psu. Game play wise, I dunno. I never had scaling issues with rc11 in the games I play, namely bf3 for now. Anyways, max framerates are important for me in bf3. With all the craziness of a big 64p server, getting every last frame I can helps when max out on three panels.

Btw, I don't run 3dmark crap. It's so unrealistic to actual performance, and the way it run switching in and out of 2D to 3D, it wreaks havoc on AB. Half my runs are with stock clocks inter-mixed with overclock because 3Dmark keeps jumping in and out confusing AB lol. nevermind the lame over weighting of score on certain processors, yea right. Look at heaven, no reward for spending 1000 bucks lol.


*I can past hours of prime blend and yet bf3 will cause me mem errors lol.
