can you elaborate on "the best"...

will screen improve? fps? colors etc

MSI Afterburner says my Driver is the 7.14.10.0890. Catalyst 11.12. but I installed the 8.921.2 RC11. Is MSI Afterburner just giving me the wrong Driver info?
post #2163 of 38701
Ok, it looks like a CPU problem, but it makes no sense to me!!!

I reset my OC from 4.5 down to 3.4ghz, stock for 2500k, and here are my results!

screenshotwin320002.png

I sit at 50-60FPS the entire time! with GPU usage at 50%?!

When I bench 3dmark11 with my 2500k it shows up to match other people with 2500k. What the heck?!

Could it be the motherboard doing something funny?

If you disable CF, what kind of usage do you get and FPS?

It's normal.
Usually AMD doesn't update the name of the driver until its final release.

The only time currently you will notice a difference between the two is when in 120hz. The dp can not only move more information then dvi but it can do it at a faster rate which gaming can be a big advantage.

Just installed the CAP 3, and I lost 150 points in Unigine, that was from RC11 with no caps to RC11 with CAP 3... wut?
post #2167 of 38701
lol, alright. I am very close to giving up.

I tried to disable Crossfire in CCC. It locked up my computer, completely froze with a half black screen some some images of half windows in windows 7 basic (non aero). I did a reset on my case, tried to go back into CCC to disable, same thing happened so I turned off computer. Took off the bridge and boot back into windows. Apparently now, the drivers uninstalled themselves because when I boot back into windows, it's set to 640x400 resolution with NO drivers. Good job AMD. I'm off to work now pissed off.

I have crossfire 7970's and to hold V-sync at 60Hz ( 1080P ) on that map my 2 cards are around 50-65% usage. Once I disable V-sync Frame rate hovers around 100+ fps with 99% usage on both cards. I am running a i5 750 @ 4.2Ghz - 8x-8x- PCI-e 2.0. So in my opinion, your cpu is far from the problem. You got drivers of something related to the GPU's themselves going on.
