    What are the reasons to not optimize new games for "older" cards like 5000-series?

    Great performance with those drivers, no problems and im happy with my freshly unlocked 6950. And guess what! I'm not going to Nvidia :nerd:

    Nvidia does have its issues too, and BSODs have occurred with Nvidia drivers in the past.

    I also see simple things with Nvidia drivers like the fan not spinning up on cards causing them damage due to overheating for example a fairly serious issue!

    If you go to the Nvidia side of things its important to choose the right card otherwise you'll be back in the same or worse position :)

    Nvidia aims for quality cock-ups, AMD aims for quantity.
    It's either you want to be screwed big time for once or twice, or meager small ones for an indefinite time.

    The "Steady Video" is disabled on my 6990 card:

    When I forced deinterlace method to "vector adaptive", all AVIVO settings became off (and the method - BOB):

    Well done AMD! :puke2:

    I have no xfire with these 11.6 drivers not even a xfire option in the CCC.

    Running a 6990 + 6970 in trifire.

    Tried the leaked version and now the ones on official site and get the same problem so gone back to 11.5 B

    Does the boost mode or whatever its called of the HD6990 make any difference?

    The HD6990 runs at HD6970 speeds only when the switch is enabled. Wouldn't it be better to have the cards at the same speed?

    At least the option actually shows up in your control panel. I'm running an AMD CPU, 6970s in crossfire and all video options are disabled and Steady Video doesn't even exist :bang:

    I found a band-aid for the video problems on EyeFinity, but still no hint of a "Steady Video" option.

    The band-aid:

    * Disable EyeFinity in CCC
    * Right-Click on the Windows desktop and choose Screen Resolution
    * Set (or keep) the desktop resolution to the native resolution for your monitor. eg; 1920 x 1080
    * Let Windows manage the multiple desktops by choosing the options to Extend the display for each of the monitors. You'll need to click on each monitor and choose to extend the display. It may take a bit of tinkering, but you can clone the EyeFinity experience on your desktop.

    This works on Windows 7 Home Premium x64, but I can't comment on any other version of Windows.

    Gaming, however, will probably still only use one monitor.

    I use the fast bios on the 6990 so all the cards run at same speed.

    benchmarks go up whith fast bios enabled and go up more when i over clock the cards.
