Cant disable 1 GPU on XFX HD Radeon 5970 Black Edition card

post #1 of 3

NEED HELP

I have a really annoying issue here.

I have the Following Card:

XFX HD Radeon 5970 Black Edition 4GB card Dual GPU.


I have the latest drivers: AMD Catalyst Software suite 13.4


HERE is my problem:

On applications/Games that do not support Crossfire or SLI, i get screen flickering/black horizontal line flashing when in full screen mode.

I believe this is because i have a dual GPU and both GPU's are trying to work at FullScreen. IF i choose windowed mode the flickering stops and everything is fine.

In Catalyst Control Center for driver version 13.4, i do not SEE CATALYST AI anymore! that was the only setting i know of that allows you to turn off One GPU. Now its not there anymore!! so how do i disable 1 GPU? i do not see a crossfire option either cause again this is a dual gpu card.

Before you ask, Yes i did a thoroughly clean install of these drivers.

This issue only occurs with apps/games in fullscreen that only use 1 gpu.

please help

So can you open catalyst control panel? Is it just missing that option? I have had that problem before. I had to reinstall drivers.

if you actually had an ATI HD Radeon Dual GPU card, and had the latest drivers, you would see that it is no longer an option. Dont know why they took it out. but there must be another setting that controls this.

I know without a shadow of a doubt that my drivers are fine. Like i said in my thread i did a complete clean install of these drivers.

Removed all ATI/AMD related stuff on my HDD and ran driver sweeper and removed all registry entries ect.......


its not the drivers

can someone with a DUAL GPU ATI card confirm that the Catalyst AI option is no longer present in drivers 13.4?
