Super happy with my first AMD card! - Page 5

I've never had shuttering with Xfire enabled and have only had driver issues with Borderlands 2 (fixed now) the whole time I have had my setup.

Anywway, this looks like a beast of card though, the 7990's are going for fantastic prices too. I've heard the drivers are much improved from since when I got them so I'll definitely be considering AMD for my next graphics card (whenever that may be).

Just out of curiousity, for those who have AMD cards, how many of you have actually had problems with them? I unfortunately had issues on two out of 3 AMD cards I've owned which is why I swapped to nvidia. I'm guessing I was just incredibly unlucky though...

I've been running crossfire sapphire 7950's since release, and it's been a carefree experience. I never have to rollback to certain drivers because a certain game gets broken, or mess around in the catalyst control center because a game is finicky. I honestly didn't know there was a microstutter problem until the recent patches fixed the issue. Maybe i was jsut so used to it I didnt notice, I have no idea. The only I can say from memory is that borderlands 2 didn't scale well (or at all really) in crossfire. I was getting 75+ fps single card anyway, so missing out on crossfire didn't annoy me too much anyway.

Wrong. There is a block for it.

 

However, it has bad coil whine and I would not recommend it anyway.
