Btw, what's the back story on this? I wanted to ask when you first posted it, but I got side tracked. Why are the Chinese faking graphs for the leprechauns?

I really hope CCC 12.3 is released next week (March 21st?).
RC11 drivers seem to work better for me.

To get more traffic for ads would be my immediate assumption, but possibly to stir the pot before NDA lifts.

Update on my cooling issue,

Well - I changed the PCIe slot, since i got two that runs full x16 if its a single card, this provides the card with a bit more room to breeth, i now runs at around 65-68 on load, which is alot better then 80ish.

Proberly going to change my case - anyone got experience with a Cooler Master HAF X ?
post #6555 of 38704
So I just recently purchased the Sapphire 7950 OC Edition Graphics Card. Having some issues.

Current Specs:
1920x1080
i5 2500k @ 3.3
G. Skill 8gb 1600 DDR3
Sapphire 7950 OC Edition
Corsair 750w Enthusiast PSU



I feel I am not getting the performance I should be getting.

Battlefield 3-
When I used my 560 Ti I got anywhere between 35-45 (50 max) FPS with 4x AA & 16x AF.
With my 7950 I get 40-50 (55 max) FPS with 4x AA & 16x AF

Just Cause 2-
While I do get 60fps with my 7950 on max settings it plummets to 30fps about every 10-20 seconds.

Crysis Warhead-
On Enthusiast settings I only get 25 FPS.
On Gamer settings I get 50 FPS.
My 560 Ti gets 45fps on Gamer settings.
I never tested the 560 Ti on Enthusiast.

Tera Online-
My 7950 gets anywhere between 50-70 FPS while I'm just idling and leveling.
My 560 Ti gets the same FPS when doing the same thing.
When I try to force AA on through CCC my frames drop down to 25 yet when I have the same settings applied to my 560 Ti I get 40-60 FPS.

A streamer I watch has somewhat of a similar build to mine and says he gets an average of 110-120 FPS in Tera. i7 2600k @ 4.5Ghz - GTX 580 (mildly overclocked) - 12gb Ram.
Now as far as I know the i7 does not have much of a performance difference than an i5 for gaming plus the 7950 is supposed to be better than the 580 anyways. And yes even though I don't currently have my CPU overclocked I am certain that 4.5Ghz doesn't magically add 20-30 FPS in this game. I tried OC'ing mine to 4.3Ghz and it didn't really make much of a difference in Tera.


It is seated correctly and the power cables are plugged in correctly. And yes, I uninstalled all of my Nvidia drivers. I actually reinstalled windows to see if that would do anything and it didn't. I have increased the power consumption to +20% and that did yield some improvements but not much. The card will also sometimes idle at 501 Core Clocks instead of 300 and when it does go to 501 Core Clock it stays there until I reboot. I am currently using 12.3 hoping improvements over 12.2 but not much has changed. I have also tried overclocking the card and current have it set to 980/1450 @ 1.130v. For whatever reason it wont clock to 1000/1450 even at 1.175v. From what I hear it is supposed to easily get to 1000/1500 on the default voltage.

@Raarup, 65-68 is probably your target zone if you're overclocking at all (maybe in the 70s). That said, make sure you have a custom fan profile in AB for you temps, as that helps substantially.

@igrease, when you're forcing AA through CCC are you also turning off in-game AA? It's been said to death, but these cards take a larger than normal performance hit with in-game AA.
 
Thanks Geritol!

Well, a Club3D HD7970 won't run on a Zalman ZM500-HP PSU, hope I can find another one today, so I can fire this card up biggrin.gif

When I force AA in Battlefield 3 nothing happens. Even if I turn off AA in-game. As for Tera it really doesn't have an in-game AA option. Just a light enrichment option that makes it go to 2x AA which I turn off and I still get terrible FPS. Are there any other programs that work for ATI cards that force AA in games?

Hi guys,

I've recently had some problems which I don't really know what it is now. Ever since I'vew played SWTOR , my pc just hard crashes/hard locks with no BSOD message every time, but if i was to put it in windowed mode, the crash disappears. I've read up earlier post and researched for days to solve my issue, and I've not found any idea what the problem may be.

So far what I've done is, tried all drivers for the 7970 crossfire, with proper procedures to uninstall them (with driversweeper and atiman uninstaller) and then reinstall(first released, RC11, 12.2 WHQL, 8.96.0 Feb 14th release, etc etc) and I kept getting hard crashes on SWTOR. This however does not happen on games like BF3, Skyrim, CIV 5, Saints Row 3, Anno 2070, in fact they performed extremely well.

I defaulted all my settings, reformatted windows, rechecked my cables and ensure all components are fit in, and I still get hard locks in SWTOR, but like i mentioned earlier, if i set the game to windowed(full screen), i don't crash at all. I'm assuming going into window mode disables crossfire right?

I checked the event logs and i received Event ID kernal power (41) , every time I crashed. Could there be an issue with the second card, or its just SWTOR issue? I'm also thinking if the gigabyte windforce 7970 cards extra factory overclock might have caused an issue to it, i've yet to try to by setting it to default clocks like the other 7970s.

I'm not sure if swapping both the cards to each other's pci-e slot would solve it, but i'd like some suggestions before i proceed on a much thorough break down to find out the issue. My hardware specifications are below.

I'd like to apologize for my horrible english in case most of you do not understand...
