[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 411

post #4101 of 38701

Update: New drivers I can now play Crysis and Crysis 2. Yay!!! No screen corruption at all, or flickering etc. Still some performance issues in places, but I can't tell if that's driver or game design.

 

Crysis 2 (DX!11+Hires pack) with everything maxed on Ultra, runs at a nice solid 60fps V-synced for about 90% of the time. The occasional dip into the 50's. And the rare in specific places it hits the 30's, lie in a certain room (standing still no action). Bearing in mind that's at a very mild O/C of 1125/1375/1.1v

 

Funny enough Crysis on DX9 still looks better than Crysis 2, IMHO.

 

AB only. CCC process not running.

 

Farcy 2 issues resolved, runs like butter even at stock.

 

Can play Defense Grid Fullscreen on one monitor, while watching any 1080p mkv music video or movie or iView at the same time on the other. 5770 couldn't do that, 6870 O/C would think about it, 7970 nice! :)

 

Now to get the AC Extreme 7970 cooler..

There is something totally wrong in drivers, core clock goes mad with 120hz and fluctuates up/down beetween 300/500/501/900MHz clocks all the time in desktop/browser use

120hz

404

Then with 60hz in same use:

Still looking for an answer here lol.

Edit 2!
Not pleased with the proceedings, and the fact that I really want the centered eyefinity to work I gave it another shot. I was getting 07e bsods constantly with AB running. Put two and two together, uninstalled AB and uninstalled drivers. Many reboots later, after trying a variety of things before coming to this conclusion, I am running the 12.2 precerts stable with the cap3s. Gonna try some benches to confirm stability before rolling the dice again with AB.
Edit 3!
Was able to run heaven and a round of Skyrim no issues. Installed AB, and then the 07e bsods start again. 12.2 precerts are not compatible with AB 12.2 betas for me at least. Also, I had no powertune control on the 2nd and 3rd cards.

USE ATIMANs Patch! Everything will be sorted out between the driver and MSI AB... The next driver will have this patch included...
I dont know how many times i have to repeat myself smile.gif

"IF you have any problems running MSI AB or TRIXX with the above mentioned driver (e.g. -xcl command of MSI AB) just use the patch below by ATIMAN:

Not sure what it is... but definitely an improvement.

Is this a placebo effect? I mean, how does new drivers improve image quality? I thought that as long as a video card can run a game, and all settings are the same, there should be no difference in image quality. Like if I were to compare a 570GTX to a 6970 and said the 570 ran BF3 more beautifully when they both look the same. Sorry, no sarcasm, I'm just wondering if it really does improve image quality, I might try it out. It's because my drivers are stable now and I know how unstable installing/uninstalling AMD drivers can be and I don't want to mess anything up if mine are working fine right now, but if it does improve image quality and eye candy...

It works for me thinking.gif

I would suggest to use atimans uninstaller to do a deep cleaning restart and then add either the driver i sent or the next one (should be the same) then reboot, then add the appl profiles then reboot then use atimans utility (not the uninstaller) to disable ulps, then reboot, then check ccc if crossfire is enabled, then reboot, then run atimans patch then reboot and there you go... MSI AB should be working fine.

I had not realized how many steps you have to go through for a clean installation blinksmiley.gif

well tbh i didn;t see any graphic improvement...as i said i used gtx 580 3gb befre this,and graphic is same,same glitches with flickering textures in far distance,and with those new drivers for 7970 game is a bit but not that much noticable smoother,otherwise no any higher improvements.Could be to there is some improvement but on eye finity resolutions,triple screen etc...but on single 1920x1080 nothing much...or this card my card is fail...
