So I'm sick of ATI (AMD) already. - Page 3

post #21 of 404
I just got rid of my single 7970 for several reasons, I was happy with its eyefinity performance but the experience was poor at best compared to the 680 it replaced. I don't have need of CF/SLI for my setup but if I had I think I would have pulled my hair out if I was having problems like you are.

Just on the off chance it can affect something, have you tried setting your mouse to 125hz polling in the logitech drivers? I'm fairly sure the G700 is capable of and uses 1000hz polling and I've seen it come up a few times when troubleshooting graphics problems, especially related to stuttering/vsync.

Have you tried using an active DP connection on the DVI?

so DP+DP+Active DP->DVI

also, just for the heck of it, if you have a problem game that doesnt require an active internet connection, disable your NIC in bios and see what happens.

There have been some reports of screwy NIC drivers causing display issues...

Interesting, that's a suggestion I haven't seen before. It's about my lunch break, I'm going to home and try this and also check for new chipset drivers.

Sorry that you've spent so much on products that aren't meeting your expectations or their advertised capabilities. frown.gif Hopefully a driver fix will remedy this soon.

have you tried uninstalling/disabling your virus scanner? if its trying to run scans in the background it could be messing things up...also any auto-backup schedules that are running in the background? windows update? basically anything that could be running in the background try to disable

edit: also disable the integrated graphics in your BIOS?

Unfortunately, on the reference cards (which I own) there are only two Displayport outputs. It is:
- HDMI
- DVI
- 2x Mini Displayport

This makes it impossible to use three "like" outputs. At least until those 1.2 MST Displayport hubs come out.

I don't use antivirus (probably should)
Windows is fully up to date
I tried killing every process I could possibly think of

Keep in mind I also tried on fresh installs of both Windows 8 and Windows 8 smile.gif

if your other 2 monitors are DP, you should be able to daisy chain them freeing up a DP port on the card

also, just for the heck of it, if you have a problem game that doesnt require an active internet connection, disable your NIC in bios and see what happens.

Dual card setups are rarely 100% reliable. Could've happened to an SLI setup as well.

You don't need to use three like outputs. Frame sync on the outputs has been fixed a while back. I dunno how you've got your setup configured but I don't have any problems.
