Be sure to check the driver version in CCC when you upgrade and make sure it gives you a newer version than what you have now. Could be interesting.

Guys.

I kept both my 7970's at stock and disabled ULPS but I moved the fan speed to about 50% on both cards (room was hot that day and my 800D is lacking in air cooling) that said, the bottom card will sometimes disable on the 50% manual fan speed I set as if it goes into a power state mode still with ULPS disabled.

This normal or am I missing something?

Hey guys, quick question(s)

I'm still using the stock drivers for the 7970, the first ones that came out. Have newer revisions been released that are worth it? I'm asking primarily in regards to BF3 performance. Are they any better or should I just stay with these?


What settings is everyone running bf3 at? With a single 7970, I find you can only really run ULTRA>no aa>8x texture filtering or 2x aa on some maps if you want it REALLY smooth. Sure, Ultra 4x AA 16x anisotropic is playable, but it has some slowdowns sometimes which can be annoying, so I leave it off. It has to be rock solid for me. Would it be better to run everything on high and pump aa from there? Anyway, let me know if anyones played around with it

I'm at work right now; anyone want to try it?

Didnt work for me. Tried installing 2x. It acts as if its installing but the time is half of what a normal driver install is. then when it say finished it dosnt prompt a restart. I manually did a restart but just rebooted in VGA. No go rolleyes.gif I have a feeling it may be something for the new 7750 and 7770 perhaps?

its just an older version of a 7700 driver that surfaced a week or so ago http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4246170&postcount=4

The link in the above post takes you to a supposed newer version with modifed support for 7970

Normal, i just went thu the same thing. I disabled ULPS and i couldn't adjust anything on second card properly. I just needed to disable ULPS in the registry and it was all fine smile.gif
(i didn't do like this last time, but trying now my self... so be careful http://www.overclock.net/t/1171028/can-not-disable-ulps )

With unofficial OC'ing you mean Afterburner? Or is Trixx also unoffical OC'ing?

Also I read somewhere the folowing :

''You only disable ULPS if you use AB or Trixx and crossfire''

Is this correct? So if you use 2 HD7950 in crossfire WITHOUT using AB or Trixx it is best to leave ULPS ENABLED ?

Thanks for the replies !

Wondering if someone can help me out. (please note these are my first AMD cards I have owned). I just tried to launch the Mass Effect 3 demo only to be met with the following error... " Failed to initialize physics system. Please ensure you have an updated version of the PhysX Software installed".

How do I get around this with AMD cards??

Thanks in advance!

EDIT, All i need is to download straight PhysX software huh?
