    Good drivers. Min fps in BF3 went up from 45fps when high up in jets which was the lowest I saw with 12.8 with these lowest Ive seen is 50fps.. only 5fps more but hey its an improvement. This is all at ultra 1080p. I normally only play on high though, with motion and dof disabled as I hate these effects and normally got 62fps min but with these drivers its 68fps min.

    Keepers. Will test more games later. Has anyone tried these in borderlands 2?

    Great post. I totally agree with you. While past sets worked, they had bugs. This set is flawless for me as well. This GCN driver is definitely the proper driver we have been waiting for.

    Reading through many forums Nvidia/AMD/ATI alike, it's pretty apparent that both companies released their cards wayyyy before their drivers were ready for them.

    Nvidia is having driving issues, as well as AMD on their new cards.

    Nvidia's adaptive Vsync is still having issues even now. They are working on totally redoing the drivers for it.

    Well, I hope both companies learned a lesson from releasing hardware too early, or falling behind in driver development.

    Probably because yours is not a 7970.
    It simply means the driver works fine with your card on Skyrim, but not with a 7970.

    Did you put the leak driver 12.8 or later?
    It may be due to garbage does not disappear if so uninstall
    Uninstall 12.9, please clean with Driver Sweeper
    Please install 12.9 then

    . Im just curious How crossfire 79 are with that CPU since its about the same as mine. Ive seen alot of Intel NVIDIA fanboys claim dual gpus on amd CPU to not be worth it. Too bad we cant crossfire cpus lmao. But yeah i was thinking about crossfiring sooner or later.

    I would agree although had a couple of BSODs on f1 2012, turned gpu overclock down a little just in case it's my fault.. will report back

    I have been experiencing ctd while playing fonv. Here is the message:

    [​IMG]

    Points to atiumd64.dll. It doesn't happen everytime, about 50/50. When it does it happens within the first 2-3 minutes playing.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Replace that file from modded drivers.

    Thanks for your interest

    While fast CPUs are vital for most applications, the moment you choose an high resolution with a lot of Anti-aliasing + TransparenciesAA, you'll need the most powerful GPU you can get.
    a resolution of 1280x720 gives a total pixel count of 921,600 (0.9MP)
    a resolution of 2560x1440 gives 3,686,400 pixels (3.6MP)
    It's 4 times more pixels to render at each frame, plus when you add AA on top of that...ouch
    The GPUs matter really much in high resolutions.

    With this mother board, I had at first 2 radeon 5870, after I switched to 2 radeon 6970 and then HD 7970 and at each upgrades, I perceived clear improvements with the FPS and images quality.

    While old games like Left4dead and Bioshock/Unreal Tournament3 can run perfectly with a single GPU, some titles are so heavy to render (Crisys2, metro2033) that having 2 Vcards almost double your FPS and still can make 2 overclocked 7970 not powerful enough (with 100% GPU utilization) to have 60 constant FPS, let alone 120 for the more sensitive persons.
    These cards are still often not powerful enough to use supersampling AA in many titles.

    While more often, we hear people concerning about CPU bottlenecks, I always faced and still facing GPU-limitations even with the latest generations of video cards. A better CPU will not help very much more when you have your GPU already at 100% utilization in a particular game.

    I recommend multi GPUs to the High Resolution addicts (or aliasing jaggies haters) and despite my older CPU, I'm currently maxing my video cards in many circumstances since I'm trying to find the maximum resolution and AA they can deal with in each titles (Ex: for Battlefield 3, I chose 'Enhanced application settings' (EQAA) for the AA mode in CCC, and 'Edge Detect' in the filter box, which transforms the in-game 4x anti-aliasing into 12x !!! Plus Adaptive AA for the transparencies. To resume: BF3 all ultra @ 2560x1440 with 12xEdgeDetectEQAA + transparenciesAA = need 2 Vcards to sustain a good FPS)

    I :bonk:, for video games, personally prefer a weak (not too) CPU and extreme video cards combo more than extreme CPU + weak GPU !

    The Radeon Hd7000 offer the best graphics I ever saw with good anti-aliasing but also the best Anisotropic Filtering I ever experienced, which keeps the distant textures sharp and precise with minimum shimmering at every angles!

    ** To note. I bought this mother-board and CPU in the very beginning of the AM3 platform with SATA3 and USB3... at that time, I was planning to eventually buy the upcoming AMD's bulldozer which I thought would probably use this platform too. So I bought an OEM Windows7 which is tied to my computer parts... and changing for an Intel platform now would cost me another Windows on top of that.... no sir... Shame on you ADM for not making Bulldozer faster than that and not AM3 compatible!!! i'll remember...

    On topic: D3D: 9.14.10.0926 is the best I got for the Hd7000... D3Dxxx0924 and specially earlier ones where not stable (for me) and would often lead to system crashes...
    Only 8 months of waiting and experiencing issues with a 1000$ investment.... :hbd: not to bad !

    Thx for the info. Could you point me in the direction of the modded drivers you are referring to?

    - these are showing a considerable improvement over the previous BETA..
    - results via Heaven 3.0 Benchmark
    • settings:
    • 1280x1024res (full-screen)
    • 4xA/A
    • 4xA/F
    • Tesselation normal
    • CROSSFIRE enabled

    - to my eyes, the colouration in Skyrim via 12.x(4Sep) was superb..
    - with the official BETA - well, let's just say it hasn't improved.. ( -though it may be tweakable via the CAP settings..)

    - BF3: Battlefield 3 certainly feels better, but the 12.x(4Sep) was excellent here, also..



    - further real-world game testing ongoing..:nerd:

    So no one elses GPU scaling is borked? It only happens to me on 9.00+ drivers (including the June one back when I had Windows 7). Now happening to me on Windows 8 (fresh install)? Or no one elses RGB mode gives massive display corruption (the Y.... color mode doesn't have it.

    When I say those options give display corruption I mean the entire screen is basically inverted and fked. Purple color, weird ringing. On any game running at a lower resolution than native this happens to it too. So windows desktop and low res games have this issue.
