[Official] Catalyst 13.2 beta thread - Page 36

post #351 of 958
I am having a problem with idle clocks...

At startup, the 2nd GPU runs at 925/1375 on desktop until I open a 3D app and close it, then it idles at 300/150. Quite annoying.

This happens while browsing the internet. Firefox settings already have hardware acceleration turned off and same with flash settings.



This is after I opened a 3d app to idle my 2nd card, but the first GPU is going erratic. The spikes you see are 501mhz on the core, where that large one is 925mhz.

Could it have anything to do with Windows Updates? This is a clean install so it's only SP1 with no new updates. I did manually update .NET Framework to 4.0 before installing 12.3 though.

Update your drivers to the latest version. I was having the exact same problem as you with the earlier 12.x drivers. It was also quite a common problem. AMD fixed it after 12.8. Download either 13.1 or 13.2 beta.

I am on the 13.2 beta. That's the latest no?

It could be because I'm use to 120hz smoothness. Everything I played looked like 60hz until 13.2

So with 13.2, frame limiter is no longer necessary for smooth game play in Skyrim?

I just tried it out for myself -- game play still benefits from having frames limited.

The 13.4 crysis 3 improvement, works just with higher MSAA or across the board a boost in performance?
