5870 Crossfire - Drivers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been using 10.4 drivers for awhile on my crossfire 5870s. Upgraded to 10.10 for a bit but TF2 fps dropped a whole lot. Also tried 10.12 and 11.1 but didnt see much improvements, had constant problems with GPU going up to 99 percent randomly. Does anyone have any recommendations for drivers other than the ones I've listed? Just trying to find drivers that scale well. Thanks.

I heard the 10.7 and 10.11 drivers have been successful for alot of people. I just got another 5870 on order, and it should be here next week, I will be trying 10.7 first. Good luck to you.

I'm using 10.5 here.. And its just running well so far.. I tried the latest 11.2 it boost a lot of performance but it disables my crossfire in NBA 2k11 even if i tried using several CAP.

Using 11.2 with CAP2.
Great performance. Every game or apps are running fine.
Almost 99% on each GPU so crossfire is doing fine.

Two issues however:
- 99% at idle that comes up randomly,
- Top right corner that feels sticky for the mouse (only in windows).

The 10.10e drivers were the last drivers optimized for the 5000 family of cards so I would use that one.....
