the 2GB. even with fxaa and smaa the occasional dips to the 30s just shows how demanding c3 is. all i care is a game without microstutter or stutter.

We see a ton of posts every other day saying, "Help! Crossfire not working right. Microstutter!" We don't see any posts that say, "Hey! Crossfire is working perfectly!! Just came here to brag!." For the majority of people that crossfire is working for, we don't see them at all. What reason do they have to come on here when they don't need help? The only time we hear about it is when something goes wrong. That being said the only game I have a problem with is Far Cry 3 and there is a very simple solution for it. Go into CCC and uncheck crossfire and play it with a single card. Every other game runs perfectly. Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, Metro 2033, BF3, etc. Nvidia has the same issues with their drivers. They both do.

Excellent post. I'm a very happy 7870 LE Myst in crossfire owner. Never had a problem. OC's nice, no microstutter, no overheating, excellent performance in both games and benchmarking. So we are definitely out here, just don't have problems and hope we never do.thumb.gif

Exactly. When I first added my 7950 I had a lot of problems. I was so aggravated. Well it turns out that crossfire wasn't at fault. My windows OS was corrupted and the second card added in crossfire made the problems show. After I re-installed windows a couple times (I guess I had to completely wipe the SSD multiple times to get the bug out) everything worked perfectly fine. It's so nice to be able to play Crysis 3 with everthing maxed out and 4x MSAA with 60FPS on my two 7950's biggrin.gif

here is my values: 1st row is cpu usage of core, 2nd row is gpu usage, 3rd row is cpu and gpu temps, 4th row is my fps value.

All max out, fxaa chosen. Im getting stable 46 fps at that view angle.

What do u think about that? is it normal? Fps goes around 46-55?

For dual 7870's that looks perfect. It would make it a lot easier for us to help you if you filled out your rig in your signature like I have.

Click RigBuilder (on the top right below the advertisement banner), and then click Create Rig (on the right panel, near the top).

Once you're done, click My Profile (from the top menu bar), scroll down to Your Forum Signature, and click Edit Signature Text. Below the text box, you will have the option to add your rigs.

i was checking cpu voltages in hwinfo64 one gpu is getting 1.250v other one getting 1.219 while playing Crysis 3. However voltages were set to 1.218 at trixx for both cards. Is this normal?

One card could be overriding the voltage settings due to VID. Unless it runs abnormally hot, I wouldn't bother with it smile.gif

And yes, Crossfire is way better than reviews make it to be. It sure is not as good as it could, but not as bad either.
