[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 437

post #4361 of 38704

Have been reading complains about drivers to specific games, but has anyone tested the new features included in Catalyst or create your own profile?

 

AMD Mode for 3D Applications.
  
Under the drop down list:
 
  1. Disabled. This option turns off CrossFireX multi-GPU acceleration.
  2. Default. Uses whatever the global system default option is, or whatever AMD has configured, if the game already has a profile in the CAP package.
  3. AFR Friendly, which is for games which generally work well with Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR).
  4. Optimize 1x1. This is another AFR option, but with optimizations for 1x1 surfaces. The idea is, if AFR Friendly has problems, Optimize 1x1 is another option to try.
  5. Use AMD Pre-Defined Profile allows us to select the CrossFireX configuration of another game and apply it to the one for which we are making a profile.

I've been playing it some more, with CAP3 uninstalled, crossfire enabled, and it plays just fine. I see on other forums that people are experiencing negative scaling without the CAP3s, but I'm not getting that.
Other settings are
MSI AB and CCC, 1075/1525, no voltage adjustment, 17% uber Power thingy. Custom fan curve.

Alan Wake problems here, crossfire yes. (Rest problems due to overclock and virus scan)

Well, if you can return it, I would so you don't have to put up with your issue. It looks like it has a problem, regardless of overclocking or not. All cards should overclock a little without issue on the contrary, it does run as advertised so it's up to you to decide.

In my opinion -- most cards can hit a certain clock nearly 100% guaranteed. You cannot, therefore to me, it's a faulty card and I'd get it replaced. Your only last option is to make sure it's done on a fresh installation with AMD's official driver and try from there.

Once you do that and it's still not working as you expect it to, return it

I have NO ISSUES AT ALL. I'm having tons of fun with my new 7970 and being watercooled. Every game rocks nicely now. I haven't played Dirt 3 because it had issues with my 3 480's with major dips. Now everything runs so smooth and I'm playing that game finally. The 7970 handles it with ease and runs Eyefinity perfectly. I just installed Crysis 2 again after my OS install on my new Vertex 3 raid 0, I maxed everything out completely in the game, DX11, Ultra settings, High res texture pack, MAXED in eyefinity running 5892x1080p and it runs it. It's around 30-35fps, but it's very smooth and playable. I may not play online with those settings but I could if I wanted to. MW3 I'm liking quit a bit now on this card too. No laggy stutters anymore. Just works perfect with maxed settings in eyefinity.

Now Skyrim is the only one I can't play yet as I'm waiting on a menu fix for the latest patch. I can move around and play the game as long as you don't need to access the menu, but you need the menu so I'm holding off for a second.

You guys gave me the tip on how to get the Unofficial Overclocking in MSI Afterburner and now I'm running 1200/1600 and couldn't be happier. This card rocks!! I'm having fun with my 7970 and have no issues. So I'll try to start the Balance.

For the other's that installed a EK block. Hope you seen that there was film on both sides of the Thermal pads that needed to be removed. I don't see how your temps could be so high unless you have a small water system. My card running Eyefinity was running 50-55c idle and 75-80c load. Now with my EK block, 27-30 idle and 42-44c Max load and my place is 75f inside. When I'm gaming it's usually around 33-36c.

Hope others start having fun instead of bunch of issues. I have a 2nd card on order but think I should just cancel it as the problems I hear. I don't want to introduce any micro stutter like I had with my 3 480's.

Here's some of the fun
AvP benchmark in Eyefinity 5892x1080p 57.2 Avg fps.

Hi guys.
First of all, i'm happy to be here with you in this community.Sorry, for my english, i'm italian.
I've read previous pages but i don't understand some things.
I've a hd7950 and i've flashed a 7970 xfx oc bios inside it.
Everything works perfectly and i can overclock via ccc (max 1125/1575). But when i try to push higher with AB or Trixx the program says AMD ULPS should be disable to use overclock. I try to disable with an exe that i've found on the net but it doesn't disable.
With previous bios (originale one) i didn't have this issue...
Can someone explain me more?
Thanks.

Guess what you are seing is to "enable unofficial overclocking".

 

HOW TO: Enable UNOFFICIAL overclocking mode in MSI AfterBurner

 

Exit Afterburner prior to editing the .cfg file.

You've only stated that you have 1 7950.. You shouldn't need to disable that until you have multiple cards.

Okay, I used atiman to uninstall the previous driver. Then battlefield 3 wouldn't start.

I then used atiman in normal mode automatic, rebooted into safe mode and ran driver sweeper then ccleaner.

Still battlefield 3 won't start and the eyefinity setup in CCC won't work as well. Other games starts just fine.

What could it be?
