Skyrim worse performance with crossfire 7970.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I played skyrim with 1 7970 and it never dipped below 60 at any time. Now that I got crossfire enabled my frames are like at 45-60ish frames. Is there like a crossfire fix for skyrim? Or something i can modify in the cfg?

Skyrim crossfire performance is as broken as broken crossfire performance can get. There is really no fix as far as drivers go. You either get bad performance but a stable game, or great performance but an unstable game (flickering, etc).

There is a DLL fix, which greatly increases FPS for CF configurations, however, it causes a few issues. To me though, these issues are sub-par compared to the garbage performance, so I use it.

What kind of issues?

Btw the link leads nowhere.

Apparently the DLL is outdated and not needed anymore, however, this thread on OCN is a great read, and will probably get you the answers you desire.

And as far as issues go, AFAIK with the latest 12.1a drivers, performance is incredible, but there's flickering.
