Do you have different bridges to try though?

Just the two.
I'm not sure which driver to get from that page

I would PM Bal3wolf then. Maybe his Dirt modded ones might be better for you

PowerMonkey I am a similar case to you.
Except that i have 3 cards of the 6GB VRAM edition.
I do suffer microstutter in almost everygame.
I do suffer from horrible frames drop in certain situations.
And the worst is NFS MW sometimes running at 22 frames in certain situation.
All of that and i still have not yet upgraded to multiple monitor setup!

Can you check if your second card work properly? If your second card is faulty then you should check it.

You said you flash the cards with the GHz BIOS?

Alot of people got problems doing that, me included. I'm back to Asus OC BIOS since the GHz BIOS was making my system to be totally unstable (random crash, tearing, etc). But everything is rock-stable with Asus OC BIOS with 4X7970 at 7680X1600. GHz BIOS was pretty bad for my system... But I get the same OC without it, so I don't really care. biggrin.gif

Could you try something?

-Uninstall drivers completely (follow the guide with everything you need to delete from registry, etc)

-Power off computer

*** Move the BIOS switch on both cards to the other position (default vanilla BIOS) (be sure that they are at the same position)

-Boot. Install 12.11 beta 11 + 12.11 CAP 2. Don't OC, don't install any OC programs. Try your games with everything at stock.

If you don't have any BIOS switch, then forget everything I said! biggrin.gif But since you said you did flash the cards with the GHz BIOS, I assumed you had a switch. smile.gif

If you have a dual BIOS video card. You can select a position on a switch. Position 1 and Position 2. Each position corresponds to a different BIOS chip. Which you then can upload a different BIOS to the chip you select.
Think of it like updating the BIOS on your motherboard. It is done because sometimes you can flash a faster BIOS to the card to make it run faster or better from stock, etc. Sometimes it works out, sometimes not.
Best practices is to always have a stock BIOS on the alternate chip. That way if your flashed one does not work, you can go back to known good default BIOS. Most leave position 1/BIOS 1 as stock. Then flash and modify BIOS 2.

This was extremely popular with the AMD 6950 video cards. With some, you were able to flash a 6970 BIOS. Which unlocked shader cores, turning the card into a 6970.

Well I am going to a company party soon, and I'm frankly sick of working on it for now anyway, so I'll test some more stuff out tomorrow.

I have two Vapor-X and they do have a "boost" mode.
Is this the second BIOS ?
Or the second BIOS is accessible only through normal motherboard BIOS ?

No, not on the motherboard BIOS. You will have a BIOS switch on your card. Usually by the crossfire bridge connections. You will/should be on the Boost BIOS by default.
If you want to know if you on the Boost BIOS, what are your clocks on default. Should be 950Mhz core. If 880, then put the switch in the other position and check. But 950Mhz core is the boost. 800-880Mhz is stock clocks on standard 7950's.
