The size of the server is the problem. Any server under 64-players, I have no problem keeping above 60fps. And it's only in B2K maps in combination with full 64-player servers I get drops to 40s in some areas.

One problem I've found with the latest drivers posted is AfterBurner doesn't work correctly with unofficial overclocking enabled.

Oh, are yall talking about 4xMSAA?

If so, I have that off. It MURDERS AMD cards and I literally can't tell a difference unless I'm in campaign.

Everything else is on Ultra and what not. Try and turn off MSAA and just keep on Deferred and see how much your FPS skyrockets. You might not even see a difference either.

I like to use 2x Adaptive MSAA in BF3. Looks great, and keeps a steady 60fps on all maps when overclocked.

Good call! :)

 

  • You will use a LOT less power
  • Have to put up with driver issues for a bit longer. However the 7970 being a single GPU, may have less overall, eg microstutter and CAP/XF issues
  • Most games there isn't much real-world difference, single screen 1080p will v-sync at 60fps either way
  • Eyefinity: older games the 6990 will be a bit better; newer games with tesselation the 7970 will most likely match the 6990, and in some cases outrun it!
  • Some games the tesselation is barely noticeable, in others it's beautiful. Being able to use Normal or High tesselation with the 7970 is really cool. Makes all the $$$ worthwhile!
  • Most benchmarks the 6990 wins. Who cares.
  • You can overclock the 7970 like you wouldn't believe. Will be an eye opener fore you after the 6990, no doubt.
  • Strap on a water block and see insane O/C - how's 1300/1800+ sound?
  • There's a thread here somewhere where a guy swapped his 2 crossfired 6990's for a single 7970, and he was stoked.

 

Enjoy the new card mate, they are rippers and a lot of fun.

I had one problem with MSI AB,it didn't work properly.Actually problem was to card works on OC settings and then just stops and reset to default speeds. If some1 persist this problem just need to download this "dll" file and put it in Windows/SysWOW64 folder....
You can download it here
http://www.mediafire.com/?21bjizy7r7b11m8
It is released also from guru guys and i found it on new drivers topic 3rd page.
http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=359094&page=3
After i puted them i restarted PC and started MSI AB and everything working fine. (no PC restart needed just MSI AB reopen but i did it wink.gif )

I just tried this now, and a mate. I have had ALL problems i could with other drivers, finally got the newest which worked, but couldn't overclock... The story goes with these drivers:

Step 1: Removed all stuff using atiman and uninstall.
Step 2: Installed the drivers. (AMD Catalyst 12.x (8.960.0 February 14) Unofficial BETA).
Step 3: Restarted but didn't get into windows, later found that my virus scan messed with me. Removed that and got in windows.
Step 4: Didn't have any sound, no drivers suddenly. Restarted and still no sound. Opera didn't work either.
Step 5: Restarted again, still no sound or Opera. But suddenly after 5 min in windows both worked fine.
Step 6: Tried to overclock, didn't work at all.
Step 7: Put the "dll" file in windows/syswow and restarted.
Step 8: Now i could overclock, and stuff works... BUT gpu nr 2 stayed at max mhz all times.
Step 9: Just started a game or 3dmark and gpu nr 2 calmed down as soon as it was used.
Step 10: Tried games and 3dmark, and EVERYTHING WORKS even with overclock. Tried Bf3, skyrim, 3dmark11, swtor, Syndicate biggrin.gif

One thing i haven't tried yet is Alan Wake which only normally works with one card. Even swtor seemed to go smoother, so GREAT SUCCESS !

So after having insane with problem i'm really happy now. For those off you not knowing the story, 150+errors, 50 hours + finding out a problem and so on...
Now with 25c ambient (77f) in the room. My cpu at 1,4v and 4,7ghz is running on under (load) 55c (131f), i have 6tb disk space, computer is really really quite even while gaming, both 7950 is pretty cold and overclocked + got 16gb of ram smile.gif Happy now. Just recorded Bf3 in fraps with all maxed out and still had 60-90 fps biggrin.gif


Video: Fraps locks on 90 and/or 60 fps thats why it stays there. The quality isn't as good as i though tho, maybe because the file is HUGE,lol smile.gif

Edit again: Suddenly Alan Wake also works in crossfire + temp on the gpu are close to eath other... The drivers, try em !

Just installed my new 7970. I got the XFX Double D, non-black edition. So it's got the dual fan, but runs at stock clocks. But it should overclock easily to what the black edition is out of the box, and it's cheaper. Anyway it was the only one available.

It is WAY quieter than my previous pair of 6850's. The fan noise is much less at idle and under load.
I do notice that the card itself (not the fans) produces a loud whining noise while under load. Has anyone else noticed this? Is that common/normal? Should I try to exchange this one?

How are you guys getting these new drivers? I go on their website and all I see are the ones I downloaded (12.2 pre-cert) that were posted on 2/16 I think.

And how would I install it? Do I really need to completely uninstall the old drivers (if so, how do I do it) and install anew? Is AMD really that lazy to make a clean install button or something, haha.

I've always heard that if you have an AMD card, please keep up to date with the drivers since they always seem to help a lot, so I'm a bit intrigued to upgrade.
