Strange graphics problem in certain games w/ GTX 690

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
For some reason in certain games I'm having an issue where various objects, textures, and characters change at close / medium distances and can be triggered to occur at specific ranges. Aside from Deus Ex, I'm having this exact problem in Hitman Absolution, Max Payne 3, and Far Cry 3. Doesn't seem to happen in other games like Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, to name a few, but I haven't tested extensively to say one way or another at this point.

Anybody have an idea what the issue might be? I was using the latest drivers at first and then rolled back to the previous stable driver with no difference.

Here's a video of what I'm reffering to. It's easier to notice in game but should be evident on the video. At the beginning you can see the woman's hair popping in as I walk forward, and then popping back out as I back away. Next, the pants of the security guard change as I walk towards them (harder to see because they are darker, but it's very evident while playing). Lastly, the texture of the chairs in the back change as I walk towards them.

I had a 7970 previously with the same rig and never had this problem. Is there any way to fix this or am I pretty much SOL? Sucks because it's a bit of an immersion killer. Any help would be appreciated.

Nobody? Was hoping to get some feedback on this as I've got nowhere else to turn.

Perhaps it's an SLI glitch? Can you turn off the second gpu for affected games?

Tried it, no dice unfortunately. I tried turning down all of the settings and using DX9 on Deus Ex as well and it didn't help. Argh.

A month later and it's happening with more and more games. Getting really frustrated at this point. What could the issue possibly be?

When I read this I actually thought it might work, but alas it did not, even after massively underclocking the memory and eventually the core clock.

I've had a few 7970's in this rig with the same exact hardware and didn't have this particular issue, so I'm inclined to believe that it's a problem with the card. Unless anybody has any other suggestions, it looks like I'm going to need to RMA it. This sucks.

Ok I watched the video but honestly I didn't even see what you were talking about. Maybe try a complete uninstall of the video drivers and then start fresh.

It's easier to tell in person, but at the beginning of the video you should clearly be able to see the woman's bangs 'pop in' as I get close and then disappear as I move backwards. If you put the video on 1080p you should be able to spot it without much trouble. The other graphical glitches in there are more subtle, like NPC clothing seemingly changing it's lighting and look as I approach. It's pretty immersion breaking when it's happening every two seconds on the screen somewhere around me and pretty much ruins the experience.

I've tried re-installing the drivers before and it didn't help. I didn't re-install a different set of drivers though, so I tried that just now and predictably it didn't work. I wonder if I need to update my mobo bios or something. I'm running out of things to try here ...
