7950 Black Ops Artifacts?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I tried playing some CoD Black Ops today and experienced a minor bit of this sort of flicker: http://www.mytoptrailer.com/show.php?game=cod_bo&vid=zG8v1P850ak

Is this my card or a game issue? I was overclocked slightly, but reverting to stock didn't change anything.

It could be the game if you don't have this issue in other games. Have you tried latest 12.8 Drivers?

Yeah, I'm on the latest 12.8 drivers. The card is only a few days old and I haven't noticed any issues in other games.

May I ask you if your game is original? smile.gif
Is it the only game that you experience this issue?

First make sure you have installed the latest drivers.

And lastly, would you please try terminating all processing exe files via task manager and then try playing again? Let's see if you have the issue when you have done so. I am suggesting this because in past I have realized some 3rd party softwares or something interferes with GPU drivers.

I hope I could help you. smile.gif

"Original"? Not sure what you mean by that. I didn't pirate if that's what you're asking.

Thanks for the help, but it's a new card with new drivers on a completely clean OS, so I'm pretty confident that it's either the card or the game. If any other 7950 owners would share their experiences that would be appreciated. I'd really rather not need to RMA this card.

In the comment section of the video I posted the OP said that he replaced the 7950 shown with a 7970 and still had the issues. I'd still appreciate if another 7950 owner on Catalyst 12.8 with Black Ops could confirm this though.

do you have the latest CAP installed. sometimes the CAP is required even for single GPUs.

http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/pages/crossfirex-app-profiles.aspx

if problem still persists could be a driver issue. try 12.7 beta or 12.6 whql.

I also have this issue with a new msi 7950 twin frozr card I just bought.

It is stock on 12.11 drivers. I haven't tried any other games. I hope its not the card.
