R7 260X BIOS on HD7790 Dx11 Issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently flashed my Sapphire Dual-X 1GB HD7790 with the HIS 2GB R7 260X (iPower IceQ X²) BIOS, through lack of a Sapphire version, to test if the card would work with the new BIOS as the 260X is just a rebranded 7790.


Original Sapphire HD7790 BIOS



HIS R7 260X BIOS


The card boots up normally and the UEFI GOP partition works just as well, but crashes whenever a Dx11 game or benchmark is loaded.
The game/benchmark will load into the menu fine but will crash once it has loaded into the game, immediately after the 3DMark FireStrike loading screen has finished for example.

Other games and benchmarks work as normal, if not better. Divinity II, Bioshock 1 & Fallout 3 all work fine.
MSI Kombustor also fully works, even using the D3D11 renderer on the stress test (which I thought was Dx11)

Originally I thought the issue was with the difference in framebuffer until I tried a non-Dx11 game and they worked fine.
It seems strange for Dx11 to crash the drivers, I thought GPUs addressed DX11 similarly, if not the same, as each other.

Any ideas as to what is causing the crashes? other than the fact that I'm using the wrong BIOS. tongue.gif

I think that 1GB and 2GB setting flag must cause a difference. DX11 games may use memory differently. Could you get TrueAudio feature enabled?

I suppose that could be it, I'm stumped quite frankly tongue.gif

I wouldn't know how to test TrueAudio, is there a program to test it?
As there aren't any TrueAudio supported games yet I don't know how to test it.

Also Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 runs fine on the DirectX 11 setting, I ran a benchmark using High Quality and Normal Tessellation with the results:

-Score: 1173
-FPS: 46.6
-Min FPS: 8.1
-Max FPS: 98.2

I'm going to see if any other Dx11 benchmarks work as well.

*EDIT*
Unigine Valley 1.0 also works like a charm on Dx11 on High Quality giving the following results:

-Score: 2051
-FPS: 49.0
-Min FPS: 15.8
-Max FPS: 79.0

I'm going to keep looking around.

*Another EDIT*

3DMark 11 also works finegiving the results: P5213 with Generic VGA(1x) and AMD A10-5800K
It didn't recognise the card but still ran fine.

I'll have to try 3DMark again to see if the crash is still present there as its a little weird that 3DMark 11 would run fine but 3dMark would crash on the DX11 test.

3dMark still crashes on FireStrike, could it, and the Dx11 games, be accessing the VRAM differently to the other Dx11 benchmarks?
