We got 3 betas this month be patient.
Yeah, but still no fix for AC3 poor performance.... I know it's Ubi**** fault but.......
NFS Mostwanted, Hitman Absolution and Assassins Creed 3 doesn't work very well with 2x7970. Anyone else having those issues or is it that the games are cpu-bound?
The Q66 is kind of outdated but most games works just fine. Will probably buy an Ivy Bridge, mobo and RAM in the beginning of next year...
How are these in FC3 compared to 12.10?
If someone has the time to do a comparisation, i'd appreciate that by A LOT.
I did fresh Win 8 install, and 12.11 made everything unplayable, movies and menu are lagging really bad.
Show your in game settings
The link for CAP 12.11 Cap1 isnt working..and all i can find on the AMD site is their 12.10 CAP1? what goes on here?
Do we have to use this new Beta8 driver with 12.10cap1?
The Q6600 is likely too slow for one 7970... you have two.....
Have tested FarCry3 about 3 hours with 12.10WHQL Cap1 Vs. 12.11b8 in Windows 7 x64. The performance similar to each over although in 12.11b8 description written - "Includes single GPU performance updates for Far Cry 3". It gets better - with 12.11b8 i have few BSODs, several CTDs and some ingame lags...dunno why, 12.10WHQL Cap1 have no issues with that.
12.10WHQL + Cap1
2xMSAA + FXAA: 10.7b by somedude
Tesselation = CCC: Maximum
Vsync, GPU Buffered Frames = OFF
Threaded rendering = OFF
Alpha to Coverage = OFF
HDAO = ON
Video Quality = "ULTRA"
Some bugs with both versions of Catalyst:
1. In dx11 with "Vsync, GPU Buffered Frames = 1" i have random lags, FPS was auto capped on 30 in some areas, randomly.
2. In dx9 while looking at sky or sun FPS was autocap on 20 or 30.
3. With "Threaded rendering = ON" i have ingame lags and 10-20% loss of FPS. Correct me if i'm wrong, but does that function should increase FPS on multi-core CPUs in dx11?
4. Although 4xMSAA at 1080p is playable, but it's often lagging very bad - from 20 to 60 FPS while i'm standing still.
Apart from all of that, the game works very well. After 4 hours of gameplay i have zero CTDs (Catalyst 12.10Cap1) or any unplayable bugs...everything looks ok Despite some lags and bugs the game itself very good optimised for PC...i think.
PS. FarCry3 - 1.01 Patch
AMD drivers don't fully support it yet.
But after they will...it will increase FPS on multi-cores CPUs, right?
Yeah should do, basically it allows the CPU to send more instructions to the GPU instead of being tied up with other work.
This way the GPU can be more efficient.
In theory yes, but it will depend on the CPU and how many calls the driver makes. But it seems that AMD doesn't think it improves performance enough in the few games that use to warrant them including it in their drivers.
Yeah, I'm aware of that (getting same fps as 2x4890 2GB in some cases).
Anyway, the performance in these games are much worse than other games, that is why I'm asking if there are driver issues, the games are all new so I guess that is a fair assumption...
How you are seeing the Multithreaded Rendering option if its supposedly exclusive to Nvidia on FC3?
Its exclusive to HD7000 series or was implemented on this patch 1.01, cause i have a HD6850 and i cant see this option!
Just cheked...it's gone, i don't see it :3eyes:
Dunno...maybe it was where in 1.0 version or activated when 12.11b8 is installed. But i really can't see it in video options at this moment...but it still present in "ini" config - D3D11MultithreadedRendering=
PS. I'm on 100% sure that it was in video options menu...out of the question!
PPS. I just finish re-installing/ re-configuring Windows with fresh installed 12.10WHQL Cap1...installed FC3, after installation the game auto update (i didn't cancel it) itself to 1.01...
AMD has specifically said it has no intention of adding Multi-Threaded rendering to it drivers as it has no discernible effect on performance on its hardware.
What the hell!?
Far Cry 3 version 1.01:
* DX 11 - 30-45 fps (this is normal)
* DX 9 - 4 fps all time even in game menu (this isn't normal) :3eyes:
Game settings are:
Resolution - 1680x1050 (default)
Details - High (custom)
AA nad V-Sync - OFF (default)
GPU Max Buffered Frames - 1 (default)
Alpha To Coverage - Enhanced (default)
SSAO Method - HDAO (default)
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3GHz
Kingston 4GB DDR2 RAM
Sapphire Toxic HD6850 1GB DDR5
Sound Blaster Audigy SE
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Temps are normal! Other games works just fine!
Using Catalyst 12.11 Beta 8 - any ideas!?
