post #8671 of 38701
I hear so many people pissed off about the HD 7900 cards. Me i have the XFX HD 7950 Black Edt. Overclocked it just a bit more. and im running every game amazing. No troubles so far. BF3 everything is turned up to Utlra. with AA and extras. Playing every game that i can throw at it. amazing. I wonder if its the brands like HIS or MIS or other brands that are having troubles, but i can say XFX HD-7950 is amazing. Plan on buying my seconded card just for **** and giggles.

My 7970 experience was amazing until I did two things: Bought a second 7970 and enabled eyefinity. Since that day, these cards have been the bane of my existence.

Just a warning before you buy that second card.

Are you using registry edits to disable ULPS? Are you running CF or Eyefinity? Are you using UOM, AB Beta with the replaced .dll files and and the -xcl hack? All of that is necessary to unlock voltage control and get max OC's. Most people aren't having trouble with single card setups just using Catalyst. It's when you try to maximize performance or use more than one card or monitor that issues start creeping up.

I had lock ups with almost every game I own when running unlocked voltages. Since doing a clean install of 12.4 and adding nothing else the system has been running fine. It just sucks that you are limited to a vanilla experience because nobody on AMD's driver team has figured out how to make drivers be stable with other utilities or how to allow us to OC our own cards however we see fit.

Of course the 680's are really locked down too so it looks like the days of trouble-free overclocking/over-volting are gone for good....

Noticed some massive stuttering (despite being 60 fps) in First Person View looking at the floor or in Dungeon walls in Skyrim, anybody know the fix?

 

I am trying modless later tonight, however it was working fine till "all of a sudden"... 12.3 drivers / 12.4 beta, CFX or Single GPU, all same issue.  Already tried disabling Mouse Smoothing/Acceleration, but it has not fixed it.

 

I have very simple mods but also Skyrim HD.  ONLY occurs in FPV, not third person.  Third person is golden/silky, 60 FPS in gorgeousness.

I know no one wants to hear this but I think it's going to be another month or two before drivers are really stable on these cards. As the guy with the 7950 said it's not too bad on a single card now but there are still some issues. My main problem has just been random crashes. In fact I crash more now then I did with 5850CF oddly enough but I got those a couple months after release.

I agree here.
I was thinking to buy one more HD 7950, but i will definitely wait for 2-3 months until drivers matures.

Is it normal that GPU usage drops down to like 50% in BF3?
Like its never constant 99%

Yes. Different parts of the game require different GPU loads. As long as your frames aren't dropping as well, I'd say you're fine.

I think it would be a couple more months, and by that time, the 8xxx series will be out when they get their drivers right for 7xxx.

I went from SLI 570s to CF 7970 and I have never spent so much time configuring video cards and trying to make them work. This is actually my first AMD card and it's not a good start to jump ship to AMD for my future cards.

My experience with Nvidia:
Nearly flawless drivers, few bugs but no problem at all. I had a single 570 GTX, bought a second one and popped it in. Drivers detected second card and off I go into playing games, benchmarking with no problems. Games were silky smooth with no stutter (except BF3 due to VRAM choke in MP).

My experience with AMD:
First 7970 was fine, added a second one and all hell broke loose. Took near 3 days trying to get them to work. Problems with AB/CCC, etc. Games are great but they aren't as smooth as my 570s. I don't know how else to describe it but my 570s would be capped at 60fps with vsync and it does not budge. My 7970s fluctuate between 58-60fps constantly which causes stuttering and slowdowns and if I turn off vsync, it skyrockets to 100fps+ so it's not a power performance issue. There's more issues to list but I will definitely go green again when their new card comes out to dethrone the 680. As others mentioned, these cards are monsters, too bad the drivers suck. And suck is an understatement, especially when people spend $1000+ to get more than one of these and they don't work well. It's like having a Ferrari and giving it to a little kid who doesn't know how to drive.

I have my Voltage set to 1.225v/1.7v. If i dont play games for 2-3 hours they drop to 1.175v/1.6v (Stock). The problem is that when i open a game after it stick sticks to 1.175v/1.6v. Is this behavior normal? I have to reopen MSI AB or reapply the profile to get normal voltages back. Its really annoying.
