[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 1725

post #17241 of 38701
I'm planning on getting a 7950 soon. I was originally going to get the Gigabyte WF3 (or maybe the Sapphire Vapor-X) for $329.99. But now that Newegg has the Sapphire Dual-X for $289.99, it has got me thinking.
What do you guys think is the better buy? Is the WF3 or Vapor-X worth the extra $40?

Tried testing Planetside 2 to see how much of an increase I have there, but that game scares me at the moment.

My controls kept randomly inverting. The ammo count box is missing. I paid to spawn a quad and it disappeared. My character was making female grunts when I got shot..... I'll let SOE get that sorted out before I decide whether I gained any frames or not.

This is with only 1 display active. >1 display and idle clocks should not drop t0 150/300 in any case. 12.9 beta dropped to 2D clocks like it should.

We are aware of the improper idle clocks, have it reproduced internally and from many users on OCN, and we are hot on the heels of a fix. Please be patient.

Got a nice pic with my parents Rebel this evening while I was there of my recently acquired 7970 in it's new home smile.gif


Also the build log in my sig is up for Oct MOTM as well, check it out and maybe hit me a vote when the time comes thumb.gif

Same here, Afterburner shows 30% GPU usage and dramatically lower PPD then normal.

Not sure if you knew this but improper idle clock has been around since 12.5 for crossfire users. 12.9 was the first driver I that didn't exhibit these issues since rc11. 12.11 has been ok once you tell AB to ignore Powerplay states, and then idle clocks work again. Perhaps if I'd done this with AB I could have went to another driver soon? Hmm, scratches head... Also, crossfire users that use ULPS on probably never noticed the idle issue once ULPS put the slave cards to sleep.

Perhaps because on air? I do remember seeing in crysis when things got toasty. Don't think I had crysis 2 until after I put them under water.

Yes I know my cable management sucks. It's an Antec, what do you want. The 7950's been awesome so far. Haven't owned a Radeon in years...

Got it at 1100/1250 on 1.100 volts.
