Prices are being driven down already. frown.gif A few weeks ago I think the used 6800's were still selling for $120+. Now that's the prices for new stuff and so I can't sell my card for that much anymore. frown.gif

Yeah I like the specs on the 7850 too. Maybe I'll just hold out alil longer and go with a crossfired 7800 set-up never know might be able to get 2 7870's if I wait long enough or even a set of 7900's thumb.gif

Hello, there.
I ‘ve recently purchased an XFX Radeon HD 6850 1GB DDR5 - Black Edition (HD-685X-ZNDC) and I have a problem with slight blurring at desktop (it sometimes appears and becomes more visible on icons… it looks like some liquid is on them).
Slight blurring appears while scrolling pages through the bar, too (doing the same thing slowly with mouse wheel is ok).
Also, flickering appears on most application-windows while resizing them to the left (extending them to the right seems ok), but resizing Catalyst Control Center’s window to the right or resizing the same window while in “Pinned/AMD Home” to up, cause flickering as well.
Despite the above, the system is stable with no crashes and games run fine. I have tested FIFA 12 & Doom III, with full video details, until now.
Temps are fine… 42 to 50 Celcius while idle, 52 to 68 Celcius while gaming.
The running OS is Windows 7 x64 with the latest DX11 and currently installed drivers are AMD Catalyst v11.9…
I have tried all AMD Catalyst drivers that I ‘ve found with no luck (CD drivers, 12.7, 12.6, 12.4, 12.3, 11.9, with or without AMD Application Profiles v12.7).

Furthermore, the following problems occur (but they simply disappear by changing from “Basic and High Contrast Themes” to “Aero Themes” through “Personalize” option):

1) WINDOWS:
1.1) window tearing while window resizing and sometimes while moving the window fast
1.2) right click menu items flashing after highlighting
1.3) window content flickering while scrolling page
1.4) task manager:
1.4.1) tabs flashing while highlighting
1.4.2) items flickering while resizing window
1.4.3) cpu load bar flickering (sometimes)
2) CATALYST CONTROL CENTER: picture inside Video/Color tab flickers while scrolling page

Another problem which made Windows Live Messenger to blur and some selection-bars in FIFA 12 to tear was solved by disabling “Morphological filtering”. I have turned off “Enable Surface Format Optimization”, too.

My system’s specification is the following:
Graphics Card: XFX Radeon HD 6850 1GB DDR5 - Black Edition (HD-685X-ZNDC)
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2032BW (LCD)
VGA: 1680x1050@60hz (32 bit color)
Power Supply: L&C DR-8600BTX 600W
MB: ASUS P5K (LGA775)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400@ 3.0GHZ
RAM: 4 x Kingston ValueRam DDR2 CL6 2GB = Total 8GB

I have tested both DVI-D and DVI-I ports using DVI cable and DVI-I port using DVI-to-RGB connector + RGB cable with the same results (DVI-D port does not work with RGB).
Also, I tried an HDTV screen (LG M2362D) using the above configuration with no better output, but the screen got more blurry with HDMI connection.

Below is the FurMark’s result after 15 minutes (1st page on the left) and after 1 minute (the rest):
http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/225/furmarkbench.jpg/

GPU-Z information:
http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/641/gpuzinfo.jpg/

Has anyone experienced something like that? Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance.

P.S. Sorry for the long post, but this issue bothers me for almost 2 weeks now… frown.gif

What video card did you have before installing this one?
So many driver installations may result in malfunctioning somehow, so I'm suggesting you to:

- Option 1: Download and install the Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 from here. Uninstall all catalyst and video driver. Restart windows in the safe mode. Launch Driver Sweeper and analyse & remove all the voices from AMD Display. Restart and install the whql catalyst 12.6

- Option 2: Format your pc and reinstall windows

Thanks for your reply.

Previously, I had an Nvidia 8800GT 512mb installed and there were no such issues.
I had already used Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 after driver uninstallation, but I did it once more after you told me.
Specifically, I uninstalled AMD drivers, I rebooted into safe mode, I used Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 and deleted AMD+Nvidia files (I always do that even if I don't have to), I used CCleaner 3.21.1767 to clean registry as well (I double-check in order for all problems to be fixed), I rebooted into normal mode & installed AMD Catalyst 12.6 and then I rebooted again. No changes in output (it's not that bad, but I described the issue earlier).

But, I noticed something after this procedure... I scanned with CCleaner again and there's some issue with AMD registry:
http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/268/regissue.jpg/

Is it normal? I did not remove these registry values right now (in the past I have removed these with no changes as well)

P.S. As for Windows clean installation, I don't have the time now to do it... Maybe I will do it sometime in the future even if I don't think it's the cause right here.

1.1) window tearing while window resizing and sometimes while moving the window fast
1.2) right click menu items flashing after highlighting
1.3) window content flickering while scrolling page
1.4) task manager:
1.4.1) tabs flashing while highlighting
1.4.2) items flickering while resizing window
1.4.3) cpu load bar flickering (sometimes)
2) CATALYST CONTROL CENTER: picture inside Video/Color tab flickers while scrolling page
Another problem which made Windows Live Messenger to blur and some selection-bars in FIFA 12 to tear was solved by disabling “Morphological filtering”. I have turned off “Enable Surface Format Optimization”, too.
My system’s specification is the following:
Graphics Card: XFX Radeon HD 6850 1GB DDR5 - Black Edition (HD-685X-ZNDC)
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2032BW (LCD)
VGA: 1680x1050@60hz (32 bit color)
Power Supply: L&C DR-8600BTX 600W
MB: ASUS P5K (LGA775)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400@ 3.0GHZ
RAM: 4 x Kingston ValueRam DDR2 CL6 2GB = Total 8GB
I have tested both DVI-D and DVI-I ports using DVI cable and DVI-I port using DVI-to-RGB connector + RGB cable with the same results (DVI-D port does not work with RGB).
Also, I tried an HDTV screen (LG M2362D) using the above configuration with no better output, but the screen got more blurry with HDMI connection.
Below is the FurMark’s result after 15 minutes (1st page on the left) and after 1 minute (the rest):

Has anyone experienced something like that? Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Sorry for the long post, but this issue bothers me for almost 2 weeks now… frown.gif

So many driver installations may result in malfunctioning somehow, so I'm suggesting you to:
- Option 1: Download and install the Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 from here. Uninstall all catalyst and video driver. Restart windows in the safe mode. Launch Driver Sweeper and analyse & remove all the voices from AMD Display. Restart and install the whql catalyst 12.6
- Option 2: Format your pc and reinstall windows

These are all great suggestions.

I had already used Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 after driver uninstallation, but I did it once more after you told me.
Specifically, I uninstalled AMD drivers, I rebooted into safe mode, I used Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 and deleted AMD+Nvidia files (I always do that even if I don't have to), I used CCleaner 3.21.1767 to clean registry as well (I double-check in order for all problems to be fixed), I rebooted into normal mode & installed AMD Catalyst 12.6 and then I rebooted again. No changes in output (it's not that bad, but I described the issue earlier).
But, I noticed something after this procedure... I scanned with CCleaner again and there's some issue with AMD registry:

Is it normal? I did not remove these registry values right now (in the past I have removed these with no changes as well)
P.S. As for Windows clean installation, I don't have the time now to do it... Maybe I will do it sometime in the future even if I don't think it's the cause right here.

If all else fails, if you do have a receipt, and do have the packaging, please return/swap, state it's defective issues, etc. Explain the methods of troubleshooting without voiding any form of warranty, and they should give you a new one...

I work in replacing various parts, and what you're describing has happened for a variety of video card errors, issues. Reinstalling drivers failed to fix, and I feel your pain.

If you have a SPARE 100gb - 1tb hdd, an entirely separate drive... simple idea... Instead of formatting and redoing windows... Just unplug ALL your drives... and plug in new drive, reinstall brand spanking new, and try again. This is technically an easier way to eliminate your OS as the problem, or finding that it IS. A hint more work in the end maybe, but preventative at the least.

I don't have those registry Amd issues
I agree with what has been indicated to you above by Le_Loup
Even more, I'm quite sure it isn't the videocard, a full format and windows re-install is required (or at least advised) when you've swapped from an old nvidia to a AMD 6850 video card wink.gif

Why not?
It's fully compatible:

http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/assistant/vga/chip/5

The only issue you might have is about your vrm heatsink. If this one (stock) is too high and so it won't clear the cooler then you'll have to use some of the many custom small haetsink bundled with your new Accelero and stick them using the thermal glue included.
This is how I did to my Gigabyte 6870 reference cool.gif

However two Accelero Twin Turbo II would be more than enough for your 6850's imo
