Try what I just said in my last post to check your cores.

Also. Heaven is an optimized for Nvidia synthetic benchmarks. It doesn't mean anything at all. Don't compare your Nvidia 4xx serie score with the 6990. Nvidia are paying those guys to get better score then AMD. In real games, the 6990 will laugh at any Nvidia 4xx serie, even in SLI. In real life conditions, the 6990 is raping any 4xx card. So forget heaven for now.

You are giving-in to Nvidia's marketing strategy with heaven. They pay the guys at Heaven big $$$$ to provoque exactly the reaction you are having right now. They are toying with you. Don't let them manipulate you like that with a stupid synthetic benchmarks.

Rumors are talking about 50% performance increase with AMD 6xxx serie cards soon in Heaven. Those Nvidia 5xxx owners will stop laughing soon. But for now, tt's only a synthetic benchmarks optimized for Nvidia. Don't sweat it. Try Metro 2033 benchmarks. You will laugh at any Nvidia 4xxx results. With the latest beta drivers, there is another 20% fps for Metro 2033. LOL.

Or should I just RMA.
Did you check with GPUz 0.5.3 utility? There is a tab to select GPUs individually. GPUz should report both GPU1 and GPU2.

I don't use Afterburner. Too much problems. I use it only to find my max OC settings, and then I uninstall it, flash my BIOS, and use CCC for overclocking.

Afterburner is still having major problems with AMD PowerTune, and always reset the Power sliders from 20% to 0% each time you click apply. And often, AF will reset my clocks for no reason. Annoying.

And with 2 cards, I still have to disable ULPS or else I have insta-crash when hitting Apply with Afterburner. Some people say they don't have that problem anymore, but me it's always ''Apply-insta-crashing'' if I don't disable ULPS.

So I flash my BIOS to the voltage I want, and then OC via CCC only instead. So I don't loose my PowerTune settings and functionality.

And I like what ULPS is doing. So why disable it to use Afterburner?

Too much problems for me for no reason with Afterburner.

Yep. Open 2 GPU-Z side-by-side, one for GPU1 monitoring, and the other for GPU2 monitoring, start a game 30 seconds (in fullscreen, not windowed mode!), then get out, and check both core activities on both GPU-Z.

Opened up 2 GPU-z's and Afterburner. Played some BC2, which is lagging, and I find that strange. I never experienced lag with my 460s, same settings. GPU-z says the first core is indeed stressed, with the core staying at max. But the 2nd core only went up a little, and it says the GPU stress is 0, along with fan speed. It also never really went about 45C, while the first core went to about 65. In Afterburner, one of the cores was at 100% most of the time, but the 2nd core was really erratic, staying at 0 for most of the time but then jumping up to 40 or 80 for a few seconds, then dropping back down.

If Heaven is for Nvidia then what benchmarks can I use for AMD? HiLuckyB ran Heaven the same settings as me but his score is like 3 times higher than mine.

Its funny people are having problems with afterburner, 2.2.0 Beta 2 works just fine with my XFX 6990 In Heaven Benchmark 2.5 my 6990 is only around 1fps lower then the GTX 590, At the default settings

Ditto with Afterburner experience. I've pretty much given every version of AB a run, with no major problems. My powertune settings dont reset when I click apply in AB either. The only issue I experience is AB setting the default non-performance bios voltage of 1.12v when I click on reset. This could be down to the vbios, but I dont have a non RBE performance bios, as in downloaded from a sapphire tech directly.

Ran the 64-bit Crysis 1 GPU benchmark...average FPS was about 35-40 but it seemed much lower than when my 460's were running it at about 40fps. There were a lot if tears in the trees/sky too..is this right?
post #1130 of 4103
Ran BC2 after trying to disable ULPS, but it's not working. I used fraps to see what fps I was getting, and it was constant 60 (vsync) but about every 30 seconds it would drop to 5fps for no reason. I removed vsync and it was about 60 to 150 fps. But after playing for about 5 minutes, the game froze and my computer shut down. HELP Could this be the psu?

I can't even play 5 min of BC2 now without the game freezing and my computer shutting down. Yesterday I played 2 hours straight and it was fine so...how is the problem getting worse -.-
