I feel stupid......

AMD_CrossfireX_Chart_compatibility_between_all_cards.jpg

I had this in my gallery since last year... but only now did i notice that 6950 + 6970 are not ideal or recommended mixes....

After last night where i had isane issues ...crashing/stuttering like crazy.... i said ... ok i dont know what i changed but next thing i will try is flashing my 6970 back to its original 6950 and tryign to crossfire lke that..


Instantly my performance INCREASED and my stutter and crashes stopped........ Doing my tests now (via playing games like i love) and time will tell... but so far im relieved at how much better planetside 2 runs and that for example AOE3 doesnt crash right away.

its the first card i've dealt with and did all that your saying and got frustrated. if i don't get something right on 2-3 times i just push it aside.... i wasn't even interested on the card anyway. i just got a very lucky buy. and i'm not an overclocker, the stock 6970 i'm currently using does everything i want and my mb doesnt take 2 gpus. btwn my current 6970 and motherboard i can get all the real estate i want.

it is way ****ed up....i was gonna lap it so the HS could contact the vram as well so i didnt have to use pads...there isnt enough material there to do that so i sand through the GPU part of it to the pipe....ROFL

Hey guys i will be joining this club soon i just had a quick question since u guys have experience with these cards iam looking to get either a 6950 or 6970 crossfire-Is there a huge noticible diffrence between the 2? This is mainly so i can play fsx on 3 screens,the 2gb v-ram will help with that for sure what do u guys recommend? Many thanks:thumb:

That chart doesn't really take into account flashing a 6950 with a 6970 BIOS. I have been running a 6970 with a flashed 6950 for a year and a half now and haven't had any issues.

Go with the 2 x 6970 if you can get them at a good price. Running 3 screens, especially in 1080p, really taxes your cards. Even just having a second monitor on showing the desk top can reduce the frame rates on the main monitor. Some 6970 (oops) 6950 cards can have all their shaders turned on and can be overclocked to 6970 speeds, but not all of them do this.

But you see, im running a 6970(flashed) + 6950 in CF. ...or at least i was

Down flashed
now running 6950x2
crashing continued(but different) running Afterburner
(reinstalled drivers once, i doubt this did anything tbh, for safe measure)
changed the registry for EnableUPLS (set to 0, in 4 locations)
restart
no crashing like i was expecting, games running much better
testing time trials now

Crossfire has been a nightmare for me.....

I've had some problems with crossfire as well. In fact, I have decided if I ever do the multiple video card thing again, I will give nvidia a try. Even if they don't scale as well (or didn't used to), I think I've had enough AMD/ATI driver issues to last me a while.

On my system, I had to rip out the second card, and run some uninstall software that was provided by AMD specifically because the drivers wouldn't uninstall properly. Once the first card was finally working properly I installed the second card again and got it working. I haven't updated my video card driver since, and to tell you the truth I'm afrid to because I don't want to spend all that time trying to correct the problem again.

Let us know if you figure it out.
