7970s

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

I have a question, this is my first time ever with AMD/ATi cards. These cards are awesome, my FPS are always high but a few questions:

What should I set in catalyst control panel for best image quality/performance?
Is there any special tweaking I need to do to reduce any type of microstutter?
Anything I should disable?

Any helpful replies will get a +1. Thanks.

I would recommend to set Anti Aliasing to Use App Settings, Anisotropic filtering to 16x, tessellation to 32x or AMD optimized. Then Texture filtering quality to highest and enable surface format optimizations. Turn on triple Buffering under OpenGL setting and keep Anti Aliasing mode to Multi Sample. Wait for vertical refresh off unless app specifies.

If you want a little performance boost, bump your clock speeds up about 100 mhz each

Basically, just leave the CCC set at default. You adjust the settings based on games. Some games have in-game settings and there's no need to touch the settings in CCC. There's no difference from NV Control Panel.

 

As for micro-stutter, some users prefer V-Sync on. You can also combine V-sync on with Frame limiter in MSI Afterburner. You have to find the best combinations what works best for you. There's no one settings for all, because users have different hardwares (motherboard, CPU, monitors, cards, drivers versions and games they play). 

 

MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 12 released
