Just did stock settings on my CPU 3.40 no OC at all still froze using quad crossfire talk about failboat my OC has nothing to do with BF3 crashing on quad crossfire since almost all the games I play dont crash at all even when skyrim had **** performace on 11.11 drivers it still wouldnt crash as much as BF3

Aion Online even manages to utilize 4 of my GPU's at 80% load on x8AA

I play BF3 on ultra settings using either 1 or 2 6990s keeps crashing only time I managed to stay on for awhile was when I was playing in windowed mode

Im having the same issues. If I run either card alone I can play all day with no issues. As soon as I enable xfire I have issues. Usually cant get past 1 round. Caspian seems to be the map that will most quickly and frequently give me app crashes.

12.2 preview no caps, 10 hr prime blend stable. Gpus tried at stock ausum bios settings. Doesnt seem to matter what i try. Ive done fresh windows installs, followed all kinds of guides to clean drivers... I have played with different page file settings, enabled ulps, dxdiag'd. Past drivers have given me ati driver related bluescreens....


I Think the drivers are still holding this back. Its really disappointing... Im waiting for next new cycle of gpus and if my problems arent fixed ill go green. Really not satisfied with the performance.

EDIT: Did a big of deeper reading in 12.1 Release Notes

"Known Issues" Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The following section provides a summary of open issues that may be experienced under the Windows® 7 operating system in the latest version of AMD Catalyst™. These include:

Dragons Age 2 may experience random flickering when run in Tri Crossfire mode with Vsync enabled or when run in DirectX® 9 mode.

So maybe all is good... im going to try playing at high settings and see what i get...

doesnt matter what settings I used I've tried to use low settings on quad crossfire I still freeze and using 1 6990 on full screen mode is totally uplayable, only time I can even play for a little bit is when playing on windowed mode but it still freezes eventually

never had any problems with any other games even when skyrim had crappy issues with negative scaling using 4 GPU's it never crashed on me this much

even shogun 2 uses 4 of my gpu's and doesnt crash on me, aion online doesnt crash either even though I get squat benefits on fps increase using quad crossfire

Hey mate i was having the same problems when i was using my 6990. Apparently well from what I've read the problem is with battlefield, and many people have the same issue. Just google battlefield 3 black screen issues. Pretty sure it comes up. I haven't playet battlefield since so Im not sure if the matter has been resolved.

I had the same issue with one of my 6970s in my quadfire setup, but when I replaced it, all was fine. Sometimes if a card isn't 100% stable, its flaws are amplified 10 fold in crossfire, hence the crashes. Try using 1 or the other 6990 and see if it happens to be 1 of the cards that is more unstable than the other.

Been using HD 6990 ever since BF3 came out. Not one time i had a problem. The only time i did it was when my OC was not Stable. I am using 12.1 Driver no CAP. Can you try to install drivers with NO CAP?

NO unstable overclock here I tried using STOCK CPU settings and I still go black screen using 1 6990 I cant even get ctrl alt del out of it I have to reboot my computer to use it again

Using AMD's 12.2 preview drivers with NO CAP using 1 or 2 6990 dont work

I'm tired of trying to fix dice's **** up with crappy coding for multi gpu support

dont have any issues with modern warfare 3 using quad crossfire, even with my relatively mild 4.5 OC no crash, no freezes, no hang ups

dont have any issues with shogun 2 also, dont have any issues with skyrim also even though AMD purposely disabled the 2nd 6990 on skyrim to be playable

even aion online that doesnt give me any fps boost using quad crossfire doesnt freeze or crash compared to BF3 this is the ONLY game that I crash on me

clearly DICE dropped the ball on this otherwise almost all the games would have crashed alot also, and would be terrible when using 1 or 2 6990

**** trying to fix dice's mess, Im gonna uninstall this biatch and stay with MW3
