AMD Catalyst 14.9 Driver for Windows and Linux available now - Page 16

post #151 of 163
Oh, I may be using incorrect terminology but I am not talking about image scaling I am talking about the GPU usage. My GPU usage in tri-fire has dropped with 14.9 and 14.9.1.

As usual 14.9 drivers still have the hot plug issue I've been complaining about for months. Oh well.

Just wanted to chime in here and say that I am experiencing the EXACT same thing.

I cannot update beyond revision 14.4 because if I do I then experience a BSOD on wake from sleep(Not hibernate, just sleep for the monitors), guaranteed.

My rig-

2xHD 6970
3770k
Windows 7
3x 1080p monitors running eyefinity
8Gb 2133Mhz RAM

The only thing that changes is updating from 14.4 to 14.9. When I revert the issue is resolved.

Do you by chance have PLL overvoltage set to enabled in BIOS?

I am asking because like both of you, I have a 3x 1080p 7970x2 set up. And I experienced the same thing, which was resolved by disabling PLL over voltage.

I will check later, but if I remember correctly I do have that set in order to keep my RAM stable at 2133Mhz. I understand that you are offering advice to correct the issue, but it doesn't change the fact that all drivers prior to 14.4 have not had this problem.

The issue happened on my "Workhorse" PC (see my sig), it does not have PLL Overvoltage, just "CPU PLL Voltage" (i have it at : [1.82]).
I fixed the issue by
1. disabling Eyefinity group and setting CCC to factory defaults,
2. uninstalling Catalyst 14.9 and throroughly manually cleaning, and then
3. installing Catalyst 14.9.1 < - - - - -
(I would love to say i just installed Catalyst 14.9.1 but i happened to do steps 1 and 2 first).

Shortly after I got it up and running, it crashed again, and I learned that it was actually the recent Catalyst 14.9 driver update from AMD that was causing my crashes. I had several things that I wanted to save up for before a motherboard and processor upgrade, but considering my previous motherboard and processor came out in 2009, I'm not too upset about it.

Largely I followed your directions(but I started from 14.4 rather than 14.9) and it works!! Looks like eyefinity being updated may have been the culprit? Either way I am very happy to be using up to date drivers. Thanks a ton man.

I'm glad that it worked for you too. thumb.gif

Am using 7870 and am still on 13.12.... as I had never had any issues.
Now am upgrading it just for the sake of it and I wonder if I should as 14.9 has having issue that GPU get stuck at low power state after playing heavy games -- How can I see that if indeed its got stuck in low power and how to solve it ? (I assume via PC restart)

Also, I uninstall old drivers via Control panel and install new drivers, do I have to use AMD cleanup utility?

PS: I mostly play BF4
