Best drivers for a 4870 x2?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just trying to figure out why my 3dmark06 scores are so low, only thing I can figure is the drivers.
GPU usage on 3 of the 4 tests only uses around 50% of each GPU so it's like only having 1 4870 anyway.

So does anyone know, which drivers are best for a 4870 x2?

I've tried 10.11, and 9.12 drivers so far, but would like someone's experience to kick in here so I don't have to go through them all.

10.10e worked pretty well for my 4870, you can try that out.

Well it plays games and stuff just fine, and vantage stresses the GPU's near 100% on both as well. It's just 06' for some reason only stresses the GPU's like 50% each and it's killing my score.

Gah, ATI drivers are driving me insane.

So I tried 9.8 drivers, I uninstalled the 9.12 drivers plus driver sweeper, and then installed 9.8 but it's like screwing up my whole PC look at this orb link it's not even detecting anything now in my system-

On a positive not, 21k is the same score I had with the 4870x2 overclocked and that run was on stock clocks so the 9.8 seemed to help slightly.

So I'm thinking of trying even older drivers, but not really sure whats going on here as far as ORB saying my drivers are not valid.
