New 5770 has problems with Dragon Age 2

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What's up guys, I recently stuck in my first ATI card ever, a sapphire 5770. I have a question though. In Dragon Age 2 it has a very light and minimal stutter problem, and sometimes cut scenes will lag. It didn't do this on xp with my 9600 gso at all. Clocks are stock, temps are fine, driver is 11.2, video options are the same as when I ran it in XP -> 1440x900, medium, v-sync off, DX9.

Res I run at is 1440x900. I'm assuming windows 7 is more taxing in general? I also just recently installed it on windows and just transferred my save game folder. Thanks anyone who has input

You can try to update to a newer ATi Catalyst version, because 11.2 is not up-to-date. I have the same card and the 11.4 preview driver made the performance a bit better.

Download 11.4 Preview, and see if it fixes your problems: http://www2.ati.com/DRIVERS/hotfix/r...n7_march23.exe
(This only works for Windows 7).

This driver also fixed some Dragon Age 2 issues, maybe this helps you out
