I'm on 12.7 atm, I'll check the card now to see what Bios It's on.

tx-jose, you on the sapphire vapor-x OC edition?

What is this witchcraft T____T
edit: not sure about the bios, where would it say?

By pressing that white "S" button when the system is turned off. This will engage the second bios boosting your clock speeds up to 950Mhz. Problem could be driver based as well, but I sort doubt that unless you're using really old drivers or 12.8.

Alright so the S button wasnt pushed down.

So I pushed it, and booted up fine.

But now at 850Mhz core my FPS is halved. So logically I put it upto 950Mhz and its back to normal, however, the erratic usage is still here.

So here's the issue:
As you can see, GPU usage is going crazy...
I have tested this with driver version: 12.6, 12.7 beta and 12.8 - all the same.
It happens in Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3 & 3DMark Vantage.
Haven't tried anything else.
Is this normal? Is my card faulty? Could you please test yours for me and post screenshots.
Thanks so much

Is your card using the BOOST bios. Stick with 12.8 WHQL or 12.7 beta for testing as they are the only drivers with boost support. the You could start by manually pushing clockspeed to 1 Ghz and maxing out power option to +20%. The maxing out of power option is done to avoid any clock throttling. if the problem still persists first run heaven 3.0 and check your core and VRM temps. if temps and benchmark scores are normal then we can proceed with further tests. if they are not i think it could be a faulty card.

you are welcome. What load temps are you getting in Heaven 3.0 and BF3 . Your card is built to be overclocked. You could push to 1.05 or 1.1 Ghz at stock voltage. With sapphire trixx get that bad ass chip to 1.15 Ghz with a slight voltage increase. just build a custom fan profile in sapphire trixx to keep the core temps at 70c . thumb.gif

I'll look into that tomorrow and post results here for you :3

I'll download Heaven 3.0 tomorrow and get it tested, BF3 isn't installed.


Been using Guild Wars 2 with it, I have literally EVERYTHING maxed apart from 1 setting (which you typically need cross/trifire for anyway) and I'm getting 100+fps in most zones :DDDD
post #15330 of 38701
what if I switched the BIOS on my card???

Would It get rid of my issues??!!

You guys should see my ITX case lolz

2 140MM intakes and 2 120mm exhausts!! biggrin.gif

just ran heaven 3.0 and max temps were 69* C on stock volts @ 1065Mhz...

but i got a lower FPS scor then when I was on the 12.8 drivers.....im on the 12.7 betas right now and BF3 has crap FPS frown.gif
