Fixed?

Crysis 3 installed and running like a dream with maxed SMAA. Didn't try any other AA yet. 2 out of about 20 games down. The next lot are games with benchmarks built in so I will just post all the results I get in one post. The top two are FPS so I play them with v sync on anyway and until I get my 120 hz display the monitor is the bottleneck.

I've always wondered why overclocks with Battlefield 3 scale amazingly.. like going from 800 on a 7950 to 1175 nets me around 20 FPS in most cases, while OCing in games such as Crysis 3 only net me 6-10 FPS (Although 6-10 FPS is everything at 1440p with a single card).

Battlefield 3 also always makes the card run cooler by 6 - 7 degrees compared to Valley. Makes me think some certain part of Battlefield 3 was not coded all too well..

Dice basically split teams. Both were given the same engine and one was tasked with getting something working quickly....that was and is BF3. The other team was told to go nuts and given a much longer window to play around....and the result will be BF4. I guess we will see in Nov how well that worked out.

Hi guys,

I am trying to get another 7970 to CF with my Sapphire HD7970 ref.

I stumble upon an used 7970 in my country, its a Powercolor HD7970 V2.

Powercolor v2:
http://www.powercolor.com/global/products_features.asp?id=391

Sapphire Ref :
http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1157&lid=1&pid=1443&leg=0

Will both cards work fine in Crossfire? Without changing/overclock/underclock any of the cards.

I also believe some operator error has been involved with "poor clocker" reports and specifically one that someone broke in a tantrum. The stock coolers aren't very good regardless of Asus's hype. Definitely recommend a WB. Other than used cherry picked early reference cards, I doubt your odds of getting a 1350+ card is very good at this point. And no card is guarantedd to overclock over factory. Some of them have problems doing what they are spec'd at.

not over here mate, 600 bucks or more for a vanilla 7970 matrix, reference sells at about 400 and has a full set of adapters for eyefinity...

and really after what Ive had to go through, I couldn't give a damn about the hype of hotwire and the sorts, Id rather a card that can actually do what its advertised to do and not cost me my own time and money just to get working...

and my DCIIT pretty much doesn't clock at all now, you can push the memory 100 higher to 1500 (GHz spec) and that's literally it...

still its all in the luck of the draw!

ive got two DCIIs 7950s to play with, mine is good at 1250/1800 the 2nd crashes at 1100/1500

and remember that cards arent sold just so people can overclock them - its against policy infact lol
