Same problem in Battlefield 3 T_T
I even reverted my BIOS on both cards like you guys said.

I'm losing hope.

Didn't Karlitos just have a problem with games hanging?

Karlitos suffered from a needle in the haystack bug unlike your configuration issue.

Zero luck.

ATI support finally responded to me today, and they seemed genuinely wanting to help.
They asked for a **** tonne of information and tests and all that good stuff. I sent them a hugely long email with information out the wazoo.

Hopefully they may have some useful input but I'm not counting on it.

Out of interest, have you checked to see if Dirt Showdown will allow you to turn on Global illumination? when you told me about that I found it very strange, something is not right but I am sure it can be fixed. Considering that you have done a fresh install and there are people here that run eye infinity with out a problem, could it be a hardware issue and is it worth putting the reference coolers back on so you can fault find??

The other thought I had but I am probably way off but I don't know enough about this sort of thing but could you be saturating your PCI E slot?

My freinds and I have had similiar issues with AMD hardware. I will never buy a NEW AMD card. Even when they were ATi they had issues launching a card with stable/non buggy graphics drivers. I hate to say it, but they'll have this problem sorted for the 7000's right around or just after they launch the 8000's. Maybe.

This is the real reason I prefer NVidia to AMD. Not NVIDIA R FASTUR or whatever. Unless there's a truly atrocious disparity in performance between AMD and NVidia for a single generation for the price, I'll almost always go Green. They're drivers and support commitment is just on a higher level than the competition. Wish it weren't true, AMD's got some mighting tempting options out there, but for reasons like the above, I just can't do it.

Lol. The same amount of problems that amd have the same amount nvidia have. 80 % of the problems is user error. I had 4870x2,5870 and now 2 7970 and never had any real problem. The only problem that i had was with a gtx470 with the fan speed. Otherwise both brands have some problems but not in the mood for 'amd drivers sux thats why i buy nvidia'. Thats dumb.

For the topic i have 2 7970's from the february and i never had serious problem with crossfire and eyefinity. You should reflash to the default bios. I only got problem with other bios in my cards. Since i reflash them all went good and solid.

I highly doubt I am saturating the slot.
I'm not sure what putting the reference coolers back on would accomplish?

Correct. It stutters only with vsync.

I reverted the dual BIOS switch on each to the stock BIOS. No difference frown.gif
