Good driver for 6950?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II. I tried Catalyst 13.1, but I was getting tearing in Furmark and random display crashes maybe once a day (I'm using dual monitors) so I downgraded to 12.10. Those problems are gone, but now my graphics card won't run in 2D clocks at idle. Right now it idles at 1.0v, 450 Core, 1250 Mem during and my system pulls about 94W in idle when it should be running at 0.9v, 250 Core, 150 Mem and about 45W at idle. I haven't tried any gaming yet because I've been busy, but I will soon.

For those of you using 6950, what do you think the best driver?

 

Thanks!

I've never used that card. But you can do what I think most people do. Try the latest driver. If that doesnt work well, try the immediate earlier version. Keep doing this until you find the one that works well for you.
