[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 915

post #9141 of 38701
After having tons of issues i returned my 7970 to get 680 and it will arrive today. I suggest people who is having same issues to do the same.

We do not have to do tons of tweaks just because some coders who is working for AMD cant make a proper driver. I dont want to spend a few hours per day to fix driver issues. I dont want to format my pc tons of times. I dont want to install drivers one by one to try and see if they will work or not. Most of us payed more than what Nvidia users payed for their 680 but instead of good service all we get is nothing. We dont have to deal with this kind of issues. We need plug in our card install drivers and we should be good to go. Thats how things work for Nvidia. How hard to do the same ?

There are no forums to get official replies. This is enough to realize difference between 2 companies but i do understand why they dont have proper forums. Otherwise it would be full of messages like mine and surely it wouldnt help them to sell cards.

Good bye AMD you will not be missed. I will never ever put any AMD product inside of my case. I am sorry if i sound mad but these issues pissed me off a lot. I really feel tired of it.

I want to thank people who tried to help me under this thread, thank you so much for sharing your time.

and good luck with your cards i hope everything works well for you guys.

No thnanks. I´ll take few issues above one-legged card any day. Not all of us use cards for games only.
Today morning i had PC wake up issue too. I dont know if it was the card of PC general issue. I just hard reset it.

I have used AMD cards since 2007. The issues i have had are rather minor. So i dont really complain.
Theres absolutely no need to format ur PC or reisntall all drivers etc... Thats just silly complaining IMO.
I agree that AMD cards have had more driver issues than Nvidia cards do, but if you think twice before you actually install new driver , theres nothing to worrie about. I use 12.3 too. Theres no problems for me other than this todays morning issue. Im happy with my card and AMD. The card is absolute beast and my thuban is enough for my need for now. smile.gif

What monitor output/s are you using? The zerocore sleep issue doesn't affect dvi only setups.

As for the complaining about AMD... I can respect that but what will you do when Nvidia releases another driver that fries your card? LOL, it's not like it hasn't happened twice before...

Really hope I don't come across problems with my Sapphire 7970 OC, I'm still waiting for it to show up in the mail. If the 680 wasn't a ludicrous price of $700 for the REFERENCE model I might have gotten one, the 7970 I bought was $610. Cheaper for another 1gb vram and custom cooling...

Im using DVI + 2xmini DP. 3 monitor setup. Separate resolutions. Not in eyefinity mode.

One monitor and one GPU just like me.

This gpu is awesome, never had any problem... and I was able to put another 200mhz on both memory and core clock while UNDERVOLTING from stock.

You'll have tons of fun.

It's unfortunate some with multiple monitors or xfire face problems... hope they can sort it out frown.gif

I have experience with OCing, so it's not first time I'm doing this. Really don't know whats the deal here.
Also, I tried both BIOS 1 & 2.

Hmm, when MSI AB request reset do it, then he will properly register GPU voltage.
Mine was registering 1.093V with AMD overdrive and without reset, with reset and shutting down overdrive, i am getting GPU voltage like i sould, 0.993V.
And also what type of crash you are getting? Black screen, hard lock?

That's a relief, thanks!

Single card + single monitor should be flawless on AMD drivers.

I have them in crossfire and get enough problems. Imagine if I add Eyefinity to the mix. O_O It would surely cause me to shoot someone.

I have to mention this bad, horrible, utterly destructive experience I had with one nVidia GPU, anyone remember the 8600M GT? I had that in a Dell XPS 15. Went pphhhtt.. zzzttt... black screen just as my warranty ran out. No recall by nVidia or anything when they knew the hardware had issues. I think I can deal with some bad drivers just until AMD get their act together on that side. Can't wait for the prices to start tumbling where I live, gonna get me that 2nd 7970 for XFire. I don't blame you for switching to the NV camp especially with the 79xx series driver issues. I'd rather have driver issues that hardware issues. NV has clocked the hell out of those GK104's just to beat AMD. Let's see how things go as time passes. TSMC has had serious problem with NV's 28nm parts, and I believe we have yet to see the issues since the card is so new.
