Are My Radeon 6970's working properly? (Crossfire)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So when playing a game, i notice One GPU is clocked at 900 Mhz, while the other at 250 Mhz.
Which leads me to believe the second one is in idle mode... does this mean the 2nd one isnt working?

Also, the activity for the first one goes up to like 40% ish, and the 2nd card stays at 0%.

Are you using 12.1 and CAP3? What fps are you getting and on what games? I also have 2x6950 2G (AMD and PowerColor). I get around 110+ on BF3.

Crossfire will work in these conditions (assuming you set it correctly):

 

1. Games that support crossfire (more than one GPU).

 

2. Game in FULL SCREEN mode not in Window mode.

 

During idle, the second GPU will downclock to save power. That's AMD PowerPlay and similar to Power State to NVidia.

Cap 3? whats that? If ur talking about the bridge connection inside my pc, then yeah.

I have noticed that i'm getting more fps then my previos GTX 580, but its still saying 250 mhz tho lol


Games like MW3, i would get around 80 ish fps with my gtx 580, and im getting 90ish now. (But its still in idle mode)

The Caps are under where you download your video card drivers. You have to download the cap along with the driver.


IE : 12.1 Catalyst blah blah



Then in this area below you will see the download for the cap

The cap is what you need along side the drivers, and ccc, just go on the drivers page and download it
