Battlefield 3 - GPU Usage is 50% per gpu, fps no higher than a single card let me guess! 60fps?! turn off vsync and crank the settings up, if usage doesnt climb, its a CPU bottlneck, which only you can fix
Assasins Creed III - There is no crossfire profile/support for this game??? (has sli support) AMD doesnt ALWAYS make a CF profile for every game, but it usually load balances very well
Crysis 1 - FPS is capping at 70ish low gpu usage again 70fps? are you sure? what settings is that on, and what mods are you running? i easily got over 110fps on my friend's 7970 CF setup that i tested.
Far Cry 3 - Stutter stutter and more stutter FC3 has had issues since day 1 on the green and red side, no improvemnts either way, they both blame a poorly optimized engine
GTA IV - Runs like crap (as usual) it always will, its such a poorly optimized game that i gave up on it, AMD/Nvidia or intel/AMD makes no difference
Skyrim - So many bugs in this game from flickering, to not working with certain enb's due to crossfire . skyrims mods, very few support CF because i believe most of the modding community are nvidia fanboys. (no pun intended to OCN members)
NFS Most Wanted 2012 - Does this game even support crossfire? no crossfire profile once again? (it supports sli) yes it does, i have a 7950 myself and tested it on 7970 CF, it is cpu limited, and did you remove the 30FPS lock in the game via a mod? if not then thats why you have low usage
The only games that use crossfire properly are Grid 2 and Metro
Drivers are 13.8 GET 13.10 youll be surprised
Did i make the wrong choice going crossfire? no.
is it normally like this? no.
or do you think something is wrong with my system perhaps
