I am using one as we speak! thumb.gif

Works great, and keeps a total KWH Log so you know how much energy you are using in say a months time.

Same results! My frames actually drop down to 50s in some areas, and this is just Caspian Border. Didn't even try Karkand maps yet. I am out of ideas now.
Those of you who can't see, it's showing 67% GPU usage and it goes up to 90% then back down, then back up then back down.

You saw my screenshots. I was getting 45fps with $1100 video card setup! I can't enjoy it! I don't know how other people are able to get it up and running.

what settings are you playing in ... not that this well help but I have had the exact same flux with frames ... even on my 5970 @1100/1365 on med settings vsync on I'd get 94-120 fps flux did you not have any flux with your old card?

Edit: also I don't see very much change in fps with the 7970 - 5970 ... maybe a little lower.... but the extra vram let's me play on high -- and all in all colors and smoothness are better... 7970 1100 | 1600

drivers will help I am sure ... same **** when I bought the 5970 first out ... took months for drivers to get going

Hi,
I was wondering if any of you who have xfire 7970 are experiencing momentarily artifacts during windows boot up and just after the glowing windows 7 logo. This phenomenon has a duration of about 1 sec at least in my case...
So?

UAC is disabled and tried a different driver as well... Some times i dont get this but most of the times i do...

I tested on my sig rig @ 1920x1080 with all settings at Ultra, 4xMSAA, 16xAA, HBAO, etc...basically every single graphical setting on the highest possible on Operation Firestorm 64-man Conquest and I was getting 99% load. It will dip down to 96% for a split second every now and then, but my GPU load is essentially consistently at 99%.

Let me know if you need anymore details!

That is odd... but I think it's driver related...

have done a full sweep of your gpu drivers with atiman or driver sweeper in safe mode?

Usually that stuff happens b/c drivers are loading during start up...

my old 5970 would do that upon first boot after I put on drivers... ever once in a while... I just reinstall ... and it would be fine..

my SLI 460's and my single 7970 are pegged at 99% the entire time. what you're seeing is not normal unless it's a crossfire bug i'm not privy to. hope you get it sorted out, i'd be frustrated too.

I switch to MP and it goes crazy down to 65% then back up to 99% then back down. It stays more at 80% than anything. What the hell is the difference between MP and SP that's causing this?

The difference is how much the CPU comes in to play... maybe a ram issue, mainboard issue... You just ruled out the cards though.

Well, yes, i use atiman's uninstaller ALL the time.

ATIMAN also told me that the usage of BOTH crossfire bridges is mandatory! Also he does not think its driver related, but i might do another try and use the official RC driver Ken suggested...

Thanks for your inputs!

Turn down your settings in MP-64 such as AA and MSAA=0. MAXED = NO GO.

 

Compare other results with the same settings as yours, otherwise, misleading.

I am in disbelief if ATIMAN actually suggested to use two bridges.

 

Take one off, two will more than likely to cause graphical glicthes from cross-talk.

 

Official WHQL 12.1 does not support 7970.

What do you think it is? It's pointing to CPU, but other people with an older i5 or i7 still get way above 80fps and I'd be hard pressed to believe a 2500k struggles SO much to bring my fps down to 45fps. If I remember on my 570s, it never went below 60fps if I were just looking at landscape or overview of the map, it only stuttered during explosions due to lack of VRAM. Another fellow in [H]ardforum is also experiencing same thing as me with his 2500k @ 4.6ghz, with his GPUs at 75-99% and his also dipping to 50fps at times. I went through BIOS to turn off any thing that would cause the CPU to slow down and such, not working.

Sorry, I should have stated to turn those off for people to compare, however, I was looking for people with CF 7970s to compare to, so I'm assuming that's enough power to run 4xMSAA. In my own test, if standing in the same area and I get 45fps max, it would take me setting from default Ultra, to High, all the way down to Medium for my fps to go above 45fps, but of course my GPU usage would get lower and lower. Like a CPU bottleneck.

Thanks for the test, but looks like you have a single 7970?

When I had a single 7970, it was also running at 99% all the time.
