post #14511 of 38704
I've got an HDMI issue myself and since there's talk about it here, I'm just gonna shoot.

Anyone else got a problem with 7970 CF where Windows 7 shows multiple "AMD HDMI Output" devices? And by multiple I mean up to six, all but one of them listed as unavailable. This seems to be related to the fact that it takes ages to open Sound devices from control panel. Was the same on a fresh Windows install, too, and on both the 12.4 WHQL and the 12.7b.

As long as you stay with a single card, it will be fine. It only starts bottlenecking once you get past the 6850CF territory.

I did have that with my 5870CF setup before. I didn't even use the HDMI port back then. I was using DP and DVI. I just disabled all the HDMI audio outputs and it never caused me any problems. If you don't output sound via HDMI, I suggest you do the same.

It was while, but i didnt saw. Who sad i RMA item? Card worked normal in games, it gave me lot of troubles in 2D, windows, zero power, stuttering when accessing GPU sensors, GPU acceleration problems and so on. I was not harsh, or something, i just said good for you. And i am actually happy to see someone without problem with these cards. In my system, it gave me 2D problems. I sold card and that is all story.

RMA is not easy going here, its actually very hard to get replacement.

And other guy who mentioned about Toxic HD 7970, its superb card, but unforunatly its not available in my country nor in my neighbour countries.

I actually had deal for MSI HD 7970 Lighting, but guy disappeared.

Why i have choosed HD 7870 CFX.
Its because i have read it has smallest number of issues compared to other CFX setups, and i just have bad habit having two cards, so i could not afford two HD 7970 or something similar, so i decided to try HD 7870 CFX.

I am yet to see issues with AMD drivers except the crysis 2 low performance issue on 6 series cards and the crossfire issue on 10.6 drivers when using HD 5 series cards in CF on BFBC2.

My 7950 had random flicker issues in any game I played, but it was fine if I ran furmark or something like that. I tried it on two computers too.

Some may not have problems, but there are ton of people who have blue/black/grey screen problems.

I have had AMD since X1900XT, then i had Two 2900 PRO and then a 4870X2, i didnt have a single problem before i got the 7970's.

The performance is awesome, and CFX is working really good now since the 12.6, but the issues with black/grey/ and sometimes BSOD, does not seem to go away, and mostly its while browsing, even if it can happen while gaming too.

I haven't had a single driver issue since release day on my 7970. Nor did I ever have a problem with my 4890, 4850, my other 4850, or my newly acquired 5750 (or any other AMD card). confused.gif

I actually had more troubles with Nvidia drivers to be honest. Although my 580, 470, GTS 250, 9800's, 8800's and older all worked fine enough. Just had some issues with the drivers not responding and such with certain releases.

Meh, driver problems are overrated, I buy what's best in my price range. tongue.gif

I am a long time ATI user and never had a driver issue.... until I got my 7950.

From time to time - usually when I go to play a youtube video - the screen just turns to a bloody mess of lines and have to power the machine down by switching off the PSU. Has happened 3 times in the past month.

Never had driver issues with NVIDIA either. However NVIDIA has the only card that ever failed and cooked itself on me.

Are you overclocked, or stock? Do you have any sort of GPU utility programs running? What browser, and what settings?
