[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 363

post #3621 of 38701
Hey guys I need some help. For whatever reason, when I'm plugged into my diamond 7970 at 1920x1080 resolution using hdmi on a 32" 1080p tv, it doesnt fill up the entire screen. However, before I installed the drivers it did. Now, there's a huge black border around the screen. Any ideas?

You need to adjust the under scan in the display options.

CatalystCreator just announced a new CAP about an hour ago. Fingers crossed that a new update to the 79xx drivers are not too far behind.

I think it's appropriate of amd to release a driver for these cards really soon. At least I wish for a new driver really soon, and that it improves performance between 200-300% lol biggrin.gif

I would just be happy to start seeing my cards get utilized more. Seeing the usage in BF3 fluctuate between 40-70% all this time and not giving me that great of frame rate on some maps is driving mad. madsmiley.png

Hey owikh84, can you run Metrobench via the thread rules in the bench forum? Thanks.

At no point did I question the legitimacy of these results. If anything, I was trying to prove back to the future is real wink.gif.

I also pull a mere 400W from the socket during BF3, OCCT peaks over 500W.

Put it this way. My cheapo killawatt shows 1100w and another member with similar rig shows 1400w. Whose wrong and whose right? Consider 3 months later I blew out a TPQ1200.

Anyone give me a hand. Minecraft with Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders v1.1.04 and OptiFine_1.1_HD_S_B2 is not displaying objects with transparency correctly. Here are 2 screen shots:

1400W at 80% (=1120W) should still be within spec of a (good) 1200W PSU. Anyway, you could be right, BUT how do you explain idle readings of 90-105W (depending whether ZCP kicked in or not)? Those seem in the right ballpark. Either way I'm not afraid my PSU will blow up as I have ample wattage to spare.

Refer to the point I made about the killawatts being inaccurate. Anyways, like you I made sure I have lots to spare this time around hehe. thumb.gif
