Many White dots in Crysis with AMD 6950 CrossFireX

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I finally finished my build, and now I have an ASROCK Fatal1ty motherboard and i7-2700K OC'ed to 4.8Ghz.
I started the crysis editor up, but I noticed many white dots that appear on trees, shadows, and other places. They're especially annoying in the morning:
288
(click on the pic, you'll see them, they're little grey dots)
This is from a level I'm working on, they also appear in other levels. They do not appear when I'm playing Crysis in game mode, only in the editor, and they're are also gone in DX9. (I don't want dx9, DX10 looks wayy better)
I know other people are having this issue, and it's an AMD issue. I never had this with my Nvidia card. Is there any way I can fix them?
I haven't OC'ed my cards, I used drive sweeper and reinstalled drivers, and etc.

Another problem I've been having is when I have the Crysis Editor open (ONLY the editor, not any other games or apps) and I try to play a youtube video, the display driver crashes along with the editor (video turns green). If I try to play the video again, Then the monitor goes black, freezes for a few seconds, then BSOD. (Display driver was unable to recover or something like that). I discovered though, that if I disable Hardware acceleration in the flash settings, I can watch videos and use the editor.

Videos work just fine with hardware acceleration enabled without the editor open, so I kinda solved the problem, I just need to know why I can't have the editor open and watch youtube videos with hardware acceleration enabled without crashing my PC.
Thanks!

That looks like artifacting to me.
I never had this with my Nvidia card.
Then why did you leave the "green" team? wink.gif
Seriously, there's a bunch of stuff this could be. It might be one of your cards functioning improperly. Take your bottom card out and run your editor again. Make a note of any artifacting you see (or don't see). Swap cards and do it again. If the artifacting is there only one of the times, then the card that showed the artifacts could be "bad". If there was artifacting on both cards it might be a driver issue. If artifacting was gone when you ran both cards individually, then that's just weird and I don't know what to say...

I have them even if I run either of the cards, and reinstalled the drivers. It ONLY Happens in the Crysis Editor, and Only there, there is no artifacting, or white dots in Any other games at all. I havent noticed them in full screen crysis either, just the editor /:
