[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 1686

post #16851 of 38701
I got my crossfire Sapphire 7950 up and running now. Slightly overclocked them to 1050/1450 on stock voltage. Tried some games such as Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2 and Battlefield 3 and besides some odd and seldom random lookups/bsod's everything seems to run fine, thought I am not really sure on what fps I should expect? Also, I am running on the 12.7 drivers at this moment (feels most stable), the newest CAP and I turned ULPS off.

I am satisfied with my BF3 performance. Everything on max, 1080p. Lowest I have seen was about 65 on Caspian Border, highest about 140. Much better than my single 7950 before. Very satisfied.

The performance on Crysis Warhead and Crysis 2 isn't as good as I hoped it would be. Or maybe I am expecting too much. Warhead on Max settings, 1080p, AAx8 about 60-70 frames, dropping to mid 40's sometimes when things get crazy on the screen.

Crysis 2, I am running 1.9, Maldo HD, Blackfire and DX11 patch. Also on max settings, 1080p running on about 60-80 indoors, but as soon as I get outside (first level when u get outside) my fps drops to 30 (!) fps only... I tried without DX11 patch and that gives me a fps of around 100, whatever I do.


What do you guys think? What drivers do you recommend? Also, is there other things I should do/could try to improve stability (random lookups/bsod's) and performance? And is Crysis 2 on max, DX11 that tough to run that even 7950 in CFX drops to 30 fps at times?

Thanks a bunch!

Even with DX11 patch? The game runs perfect with all the mods mentioned but as soon as i enable DX11 my fps drops like mad.

CPU freq? you got problems for sure, i get 35 as minimum with single 7950 in Warhead heavely modded. Try 12.6/12.8 did you installed the latest 12.9 CAP?

what you think?

Try 12.7 they seem to work good for me! smile.gif

Also 1150 is where my core start to be unstable, try 1140 and you got great memory oc as well, which is more important imho for high textures mods and similar demanding games with AA/AF.

What voltage are you using?

Got my i5 2500k on 4.0 ghz right now, haven't had the time to stabilize a higher overclock yet. Though i tried a 4.5 ghz overclock but that didn't make any difference. You maxed out Crysis? AA etc..?

Edit: Didn't notice your edit. I am using latest CAP indeed. Think i gave 12.8 a try but caused trouble. 12.6 i haven't tried yet.

Not sure what you mean by maxed out, but average is around 45 fps (7950@ 1140/1500) with 8XMSAA, 16XAF and Rygel textures pack.

I ment AA / AF on max and such, got my answer smile.gif
Strange..

I doubt its my cpu bottlenecking me, i would have noticed it on BF3 also then?
Anything i should change in CCC settings? should i run a specific AMD profile?

Damn, i was hoping it was a driver issue that i could fix. It makes overclocking a pain. I would rather it screw some pixels up or something like my 5770 instead of completely crashing. Instead of the slow process of closing the non responsive game/benchmark/stress test program, i could just minimize, bump the voltage, and keep testing. Oh well, cant always have everything my way! So far i'm at 1100/1475. Anyone know how to push them further? I'm using Afterburner as CCC wont let me use the Performance tab as it is bugging out.

EDIT:
1100/1575!!!!
Core voltage at 1.156V
Stock Mem Voltage (1.5v)

What does the Aux voltage do?
