GTX 580 screen tears

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ive recently upgraded from a gtx 465 to gtx 580. All is good and im getting really great performance with i7 950 @ 4.02 ghz + p6x58d-e but, occasionally when the card is put under load I get random screen tears. Everything is on stock except for the fan which is running at 85%. Card idles around 48 and loads around 60 which is great. In nvidia control panel I got everything maxed out except for AA @ 8x and vsync is also on. I havent had the chance to check it out yet but I think it might be the adapter Im using which is an 8 pin adapter from 2x6 pins. When I get home Im gonna try the 2x4pin molex to 8 pin adapters and also the original 6+2 pin adapter.
Has anyone had similar issues? Im really trying to figure out whether or not I should RMA the thing.

Did you try turning on vsync? I use it only if tearing is an issue but it seldom is for me.

I see Atomfix beat me to it. smile.gif

yep vsync is already on. If it helps its the kind of screen tear when you raise the mem clock too high

no idea, you should maybe set v-sync in the control panel to application controlled just incase they are syncing at different times and causing tears themselves biggrin.gif

Hmm I can try that but could this be a driver issue? Since its still a fairly new card?

This.

I had the same issue with Mirror's Edge; was getting awful screen tearing 'til I fixed it in the Nvidia control panel, the game option didn't quite cut it.

go into nvidia control panel and force vsync on. see if that helps. if not, monitor? dvi cable?

I get alot of screen tearing on 3DMark 11, But enableing V-Sync in 3Dmark 11 resolved my problem at a cost of points.... But I only run 3Dmark 11 just for the pure tesselation awsomeness! *drolls* Can't wait to repace my 6870 to a GTX 480 soon biggrin.gif

yeah it could be, maybe when theres a lot of load the drivers struggle a little and the v-sync on the CP goes out of sync with the game v-sync so to speak.
