    My second 7970 is stuck @ 500/1575, i have to enter a game, and then back to windows to get it down to normal idle speed. And if i disable CFX, second card is still running 500/1575, resulting in 65c, insted of 35c which is normal my idle temp..

    On 9.00 i dont have this issue.
    i suppose you where talking to me, or ??

    Not for me, atleast. I have better performance on 9.00 June 12 drivers, but they BSOD too.

    yeah i was talking to you :) mmmm my clocks speeds act totally normal , with crossfire enabled or not

    65 c idle temp even at those clock speeds seams waay high :eek3: what is your ambient temp ?? even when i had the stock coolers on my 7970 black editions , load temps weren't even that high !!

    Normally they both idle @ 35c, on load 1125/1575 they are 68/71c with fan on 42-45%. So why the second card is so warm @ 500/1575 i dont know. Ambient temp 18-22c

    But, im back on 9.00 and everything is fine now :banana:

    Thanks for the advice; I assume my graphics card is supported + it will work with "switchable graphics"?

    I've had the first issue with these drivers and uninstalled. I got massive corruption in test drive unlimited 2 then when I came out of the game and loaded up another it was like the drivers were corrupted and I was getting artifacts in all other 3d games too. I uninstalled the drivers and went back to the official 12.4 download and all problems sold at the same and higher gfx core clocks. Weird!

    IS that for real?

    It would be a dream to have crossfire actually work.

    Well the 6970m's are my first one and they suck horribly already. Couldn't get more issues with flickering & microstuttering. Bad Company 2, a console port, was the only game that ran issue-free - and that only when I disable ingame bloom.

    No freaking support from AMD for Skyrim i. e. at all.

    with the 12.7's skyrim performance increased a lot (atleast on the 7000 series) , also so did the image quality , i was shocked how much better it looks :banana:
    no flashing issues for my combo

    Performance is up slightly over 12.6 with these

    Downside is playing a youtube video, then closing youtube video, my second monitor the display went ape**** and was flashing like mad, opening GPU-Z its cause the clocks were cycling like -CRAZY- and a reboot fixed it

    EDIT: Got it again when going in and out of a youtube video after loading 7 of them, rebooted, I disabled flash hardware acceleration, now its working perfectly fine after 40+ video loads

    I would think so, but don't take my word for it... hopefully asder00 comes across this post and answers better than I'm able to!


    For what it's worth, guys, I'm not having any real problems at all with this driver. Other than the problem I mentioned in another thread re: Sonic/Sega All-Stars (where it seems to happen with a few drivers) these seem to be flawless. No problems with any video at all (though I *am* only using a single monitor).

    5xxx series owners should feel safe with this one, even CFX users, if my experience is anything to go by :)

    Yesterday i decided to try this driver and im pretty impressed so far. One time my system froze and i had to reboot (watching a stream on twitch tv) but other then that its working great. The difference in battlefield 3 is night and day. I finally get the feeling i get what i paid. Couse i was pretty dissapointed about the performance of my new 7870. I used to game on a 5670 so you can imagine i expected a huge improvement. This driver makes me happy :banana:

    I know WEI is not a good benchmark but with a clean install of Windows 7 SP1 x64 and these drivers, my cards got a 6.0 WEI

    I installed the 9.00 driver over the top and got the expected 7.5
