Eyefinity + Crossfire problems with Vsync. Video of problem attached.

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Okay so here is a video of my problem. It's driving me crazy.
It reports 60fps, but feels like 30. (It doesn't fluctuate either, just feels like a flat 30fps the whole time)
I also tried messing with the flip queue size (aka max pre-rendered frames)
Does this in every game.

Any reason that you still use Vsync if the stuttering bothers you? I've found that different games have different results with Vsync. Some are smoother while others are just like what you've got.

There's the possibility of micro stutter for your setup. I would put my bet on that since you're running eyefinity alongside crossfire.

It works on a single monitor though which is frustrating.
And I'd call it MEGA-stutter.
Every single game has the same result. No changes at all.
I leave it off but the tearing gets on my nerves. I'd like to be able to use it again redface.gif
It looks soooooooo much smoother with vsync on.

If you hard limit it at maybe 57 FPS, is there any change?

This stops the stuttering, but brings some tearing with it.
It's less tearing than having vsync off, but still there mad.gif

Perfectionist is you. tongue.gif

I would go through the 55 to 65 fps range in the hard limit until little/no tearing occurs.

Hard limit at 58Hz and VSync on is what I'd try. That or rather RadeonPro and dynamic Vsync.

Dynamic vsync? How do I set that up - I'm not seeing any mention of it in Radeon Pro

Edit: guess I need the beta. I'll try this out.

Well here's an update.

Crossfire + vsync = capped at 60 fps.
Eyefinity + vsync = capped at 60fps.
Crossfire + Eyefinity + vsync = capped at 120fps.

This is on 60hz monitors.

It's HALVING my effective framerate somehow.
If I turn EVERYTHING low so that the game can hit 120FPS, it becomes buttery smooth. But this is on 60hz monitors... I shouldn't need to hit 120fps to get 60 fps on my monitors.
Apparently AMD refuses to recognize this as an issue, and it has apparently been going on for over a year and has driven some people to Nvidia because they never got a fix...

I even tried forcing vsync refresh rate through RadeonPro. No luck.

I'm so pissed. I'm about to dual boot Windows 8 and pray that something happens.

Windows 8 didn't solve a damn thing. Huge waste of time.
