AMD 12.11 Beta Drivers - Page 54

post #531 of 1877
The clocks you are seeing in Firefox are the expected behavior. It's a fully GPU-accelerated browser, and using it can request hundreds or thousands of draw calls per second. Other browsers do this, too. But Firefox is triggering a higher power state on Radeon because whatever it's doing is being done less efficiently than other browsers.

This is not a driver bug, and we've already spoken to Mozilla about it.

While my 7950 was sent for replacement, I installed my old GTX460.

The clocks on Firefox were almost 90+% in idle mode, just 50Mhz ( drivers 310.33 ). The GPU loading was as high as 50% without waking the 2D or even 3D clocks, like my 7950. And don't forget the 7950 has 300Mhz idle clocks, not just 50Mhz. I'm not talking about videos. Simple loading/rendering websites. On GTX460 not even the scrolling could wake higher clocks -which unarguably is a "heavy" process.

I'm tracking Fx's GPU behavior for long time. This clocks-issue probably has nothing to do with the reason Mozilla is blocking 12.8 drivers and ownards ( Windows 8 - On Win7 only 12.8 is being blocked ). I think they said something about Memory corruptions and 2D performance -you should know better.

Do you think we're going to get HWA on Firefox on Windows 8 within 2012?

P.S. To be honest, I don't trust Fx's HWA as much as Internet Explorer's -thus, as simple user I can't tell whose fault is this

Beta 6 is working perfectly for me, great to have proper working idle clocks fixed.

Got black ops 2 as well so looking forward to the next beta for that. smile.gif

That don't have to be related to the driver. Same thing happens on my 570 it is clearly related to adblock. it sometimes happens on wallbase.cc .

Why is this such a big deal? It's not like it stays at full 3d mode while surfing. Im using chrome my and my card is in idle mode for around 95% of time even while watching videos (disabled HWA there). If i was you i just would switch browsers. FF causing a lot of strange things to happen even on Nvidia.

Opera work fine for me. Keep clocks @ 300/150

I see what your saying, so an plugin/addon adblocker or does chrome have one built in? I may need to use IE and see if i get the same results.
edit: Ok i see adblock now, looks familiar I may have installed it way back when

Just want to confirm I am not the only one... but Windows 8 doesn't accept these beta drivers for viewing stuff through apps correct?

Is anyone seeing the DX9 flickering on non-7000 Series GPUs? To be specific, it's temporary flashes of black shapes and lines.
post #539 of 1877
I have some screen shots in GW2 of texture flickering I will try and include with a bug report.

Using the latest beta 6's, windows 8, whilst in the store and checking out apps, when previewing screenshots i see tiny black squares, in a cluster, which appear in a flash, then disappear. 7970 card. Anybody else seeing them? Idle clock issue.
