Thanks!

anyone else getting a bit of texture flickering or anything on unigine with 12.2 pre-cert? I'm running a sapphire 7950 oc and I get a little bit of strange behavior at stock clocks and volts. I get a flicker on the first patch of grass and a couple weird things afterwards. Card is otherwise stable and I haven't noticed any other artifacts. I was stable in 3dmark 11 at 1150 core/1550 mem with 1.175 core v, but went back to stock to investigate these unigine quirks. Should I try rolling back to a different driver or something?

that happens to me sometimes...on stock and OC version...so i guess it's with program...what i actually get is just one flicker at that grass part and after that is ok....and next run circle is ok...it happens most of time when first time turn on Unigine

If I crash in BF3, it's also only one time in the first 20 mins, rest of the gaming session (about 3-4 hours) everything's fine.

BTW: there is also a 12.2 pre-whql driver that does include support for the 7xxx series.

Performance looks ok for me, ALT-TAB out of BF3 works like a breeze, unbelievably fast.

Strangely enough I believe the preview and pre-certified drivers are different...

If someone want to test Powertune 0/+20 with OC I would suggest following games:
Alien vs. Predator
Metro 2033
BF3

The Powertune-Max value is different for each 7970 card, even with the same clocks.
Post your VID and your voltage too if you test it.

You can see the Powertune limits on these spikes during the bench:

Whether your stock or overclocked... i will do some benches when i get home.
I *think* Metro 2033 does...
I know it did with the 69x0 series in a couple of reviews and they have similar limitations.
Hmm.

I know for certain that OCCT/Furmark is throttled with +20%, though.

Now about adding the previous driver to the OP, I think I will.
The latest 12.2 P-C driver introduces a few issues from what I read.
I'll re-add it to the list soon.

Meh, not that hard for me, simple until the fix.

That would be a nice solution if the driver error only happened while overlocked... But it also happens when on default clocks mad.gif

The "preview of 12.2" is not 7XXX compatible, however, the "Pre cert 12.2" is and has fixed all my issues.
