    Crash is caused by replicable problem where you use 2 tools at same time to read hard data directly from sensor. Can be replicated even with one card.

    As for reflashing vBIOS of your 2nd card:
    - if your vBios got scrambled then card would not boot at all, you would have to switch to 2nd vBIOS on card to boot 1st.
    - your vBIOS is unlikely cause for card to run on default 925MHz as you are not overclocking by changing vBIOS values
    - it's just fact that upon changing vBIOS card is detected by system as another piece of HW and system reinstalls drivers for it, which leads to reset of configuration

    I asked this in the 9.5 thread, but maybe someone here could lend a hand?

    Edit: For one of these games, I disabled v-sync BUT enabled frame limiting and it's less choppy and uses LESS CPU. Very, very weird.

    Again... any ideas?

    Nope

    Once again, you have to use those specific API flags for specific features in engine :rolleyes:

    this WHQL is kinda rare, because the driver version is newer than the beta,

    i wonder if i should install this or wait for 13.12 beta,

    or did anyone know if AMD close the year with this WHQL, and wont release a new beta, until january ?

    i'm quite happy with 13.11 beta 9.5, because i haven't encountered any issue.

    so its only the WHQL of beta 9.5, but did anything changes ? i meant maybe minor changes ?

    because beta 9.5 also have hidden changes, that AMD didn't mention,

    ex : Railroad tycoon 2 (steam ver) videos colors are now fixed, and not rainbow colored, and Gangsters (GOG ver) gameplay colors are now fixed, and it was also rainbow colored.

    it has for sure changes (fixes)
    And its newer than 9.5 beta.
    And it is the best driver so far for 7790.

    Yea, 13.12 WHQL broke texutres in BF4 when lookin by thermal optic.
    Now I'm on 13.11 Beta 9.5 and they work great.
    So I'm assuming somethings little change in this 13.12 in BF4 (for worse)

    This is odd...I cleaned all of my old drivers out with DDU (in safe mode), but after the installation of 13.12 my Catalyst version is coming up as 11.5 (all of the other drivers appear to be listed as the current version, though). Could that be due to whatever Windows installs after I clean my drivers? I've never really encountered this before.

    Also, are these drivers even worth it (especially if playing BF4)?

    I had been using the beta 9.4 drivers previously because the 9.5s were giving me frequent crash and recovery errors.

    they left the cat version string out, it will show whatever it can find from your last installs.

    the driver team has been notified

    just put it in yourself.

    It got kinda confusing as to what was causing card#2 to run at 925mhz on reboot.

    It seems that for some reason the driver (13.12) for card#2 won't load with uncore 44x and above. There are no probs with previous drivers. 47x/43x vs. 47x/44x... I can live with it.

    Thanx for the reply!

    Weird. It went through the entire WHQL process and no one caught that?

    I just figured it was something screwy that I did wrong.

    probably not something MS was looking for.

    It probably something they put in at the very last moment before they release it, and forget sometimes.
