Dont put words in my mouth please...
I was speaking about crysis 2.
And like I told here before on the forum, I had the same thing happening with me with a nvidia card and a certain game. Only drivers that did not crash with that game were the ones that came with the card.
People here should really try and look at the big picture. Its not like nvidia is so great with their drivers so that every single game works without problems. It really is not. I wish it were, I would buy nvidia every time if it was !

Dude, I mentioned the games I was playing and you said drivers can't be expected to work on "old games". You didn't specify which game was "old" so I assumed you meant both (neither of which is old anyway considering their both DX11).

And as far as Nvidia vs. AMD goes, NOBODY said Nvidia is perfect but facts are facts and I can say without any reservation that I never had ANY of the issues with my Nvidia single card and SLI setups that I am now suffering from with these 7970's. There is an absolute, 100% for certain conclusion that Nvidia's drivers are better, more stable, and reliable on more games than any of AMD's. I just wish AMD's drivers were even half as good as their hardware...

LOL biggrin.gif don't you worry i'll be testing them out for sure thumb.gif

can't get any worse than what it's already is (hope i didn't jinx it tongue.gif )

alright my worst fear has come to light

12.4 WHQL is worse than the beta version


Crossfire is dead completely with or without crossfire enable,

Eyefinity is ok, or it might be broken, as when you run non Eyefinity compatible games only 1 screen turns on
but now the same game / bench shows up in all 6 screen

for Eyefinity compatible games, they still work properly

i'll try 12.4 WHQL again if i have time later today in a clean install of Win7 to see if it makes any difference

From what I've come across, think Tslm posted a reference to it, that supposedly AMD is working their butts off to fix our specific issue in 12.5. But when is that lol? Where is Waldo??

No I did not run that benchmark yet !

I can say for certain that these will be the last AMD video cards I buy. The GPU itself is fantastic as is the MSI non-reference board but I just can't stomach spending $1200 for video cards that crash in my games even at stock with stock drivers. As soon as 680 Lightnings show up I'm gone... mad.gif

It's because the guy that ran the Catalyst team moved. The previous team matured the Cayman drivers in 3 months. This team, we're still on the damn release drivers because all the updates have broken things worse. Care to ask me if I wish the old team head was still here?

What I did:
Fresh OS install
all drivers and updates
installed 12.3 whql
installed 12.3 cap 1
disable ulps
install Msi AB
enable UOM
Everything was fine even overclocking and playing all games. Only thing was 2nd card wouldn't drop to 2d clocks unless I opened 3dmark11 and stopped it while loading first test, then 2nd card would drop.
12.4 whql came out.
I uninstalled MSI AB, reboot
uninstalled 12.3 cap 1, reboot
uninstalled 12.3 whql, reboot
installed 12.4 whql, reboot
installed 12.3 cap1, reboot
disable ulps, reboot
installed MSI AB, seen new hardware, reboot
I didn't enable UOM yet,
Fired up BF3 and then I get 21fps and card 1 running 9-20% at 1125/1500 and 2nd card running 100% at 500/1375. Shut down AB and same thing.
Thought if I didn't mess with any beta's, this was the correct way that should of been fine.

Only thing I dont understand is why you would install a cap that is meant for an older driver?
Maybe try without the CAP?
Dunno, just trying to help !

Well let's get him the hell back because I can't take much more of this crap. I understand that most of my problems have dealt with trying to unlock voltages and overclocking but this is a clean, stock install and its still crashing in games for no apparent reason. There's just no excuse for that. I mean, I know these are beta 12.4 drivers but the same issue was there on 12.3 WHQL as well...
