    Not sure if it is drivers or MSI Afterburner, but when I first start up afterburner, it is showing GPU2 usage at 99% and it never moves. Only way to get it to read correctly is to go into CCC and disable and then re-enable Crossfire.

    It also looks like Crossfire is not actually working in Dead Space.

    Is there anything else I can use to test if GPU2 is actually doing anything?

    Go back to an older driver. 13.1 or older should work for now.
    So far I've seen people complain about crashing or driver stop responding in:
    Metro 2033
    FC3
    BO2
    Skyrim
    BF3

    thought I would copy this info here, since i know a good number of rp users play gw2

    Ok, so, I have seen and had a number of people tell me they cant get smaa to inject/work with gw2 and RadeonPro.....I will explain the VERY easy way you do this now....

    first you need to create a profile for the game.

    in the profile under the Triggers tab, you see a field called "start parameters" in that field put

    -email myname@myprovider.com -password 12345 -nopatchui
    as described http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Command_line_arguments#-password_.5Bstring.5D

    replace the "myname@myprovider.com" and "12345" with your login email and password.

    There is something interesting happening with this driver and world of warcraft, I think it was also in previous one beta2.
    The difference in fps if you enable max multisampling in game (8x) vs 2x is almost nothing.
    Basically you can run now with max antialias with none or minimal fps loss.

    I don't usually try beta drivers, but, are they really useful on older cards? Like I still use my HD5770.

    My clocks were both sitting at 500 something after installing this set but a quick refresh back to factory defaults sorted it out. First time that's ever happened when installing new drivers on my card.

    Definite improvement in Crysis 3 beta though.

    System crash (Kernel crash) error 41

    Hello to all,
    since I installed 13.2 b4 my system crash daily (once or more) but never during a game.
    It happens when the PC is in idle state.
    I dont'n know if is a video driver problem, I ask if anybody has this kind of problem.
    Thank you.

    I've not seen any crashes or driver response issues with Metro2033 or BF3 since installing Beta 4, In fact I've seen FPS and stability increases with Beta 4.

    I haven't seen this issue myself personally and I often leave my PC in an idle state sometimes for hours on end.

    Could be hardware related?
    Or perhaps you didn't properly clean out the old driver files from the previous driver install with driver-sweeper?

    I can't think of a reason why this issue would happen besides those reasons.

    I have a weird problem that I noticed lately. 13.1 runs really well, bf3 and all is super fluent, colors are splendid. however when I try the 13.2 beta 2 or 3-4 my display's colors are all washed out, in game and in browser, screen is flat and has no contrast. I go back to 13.1 and colors are back. any ideas?

    Been trying out Dead Space III, the game is awesome :D but it runs like ****
    i cant break 60fps all maxed out with my 2x7950s @1920x1200, its like multigpu is broken with this game 50 average + dips to low 40s.

    thought there was a dead space 3 profile added to these drivers about 3 revisions back or 2 at least lol

    Also for some strange reason, this game is artifacting grey white squares when looking around with your torch also weird colored sprites squares when stomping on enemys .....

    what the bloody hell are amd / ati playing at

    I had ULPS disabled at first but then I enable it to see if that was causing the problem to no avail. I cleaned out the old driver before hand as well.

    I did get better performance in other games such as BF3, Hitman and even iRacing but with the problems I had with the other games I'll wait for the next one.

    I'm getting a constant 60 fps (cap set with MSI ab). A driver will probably be released soon for some optimizations. Just wait it out.

    Something is wrong with your system. I was just playing DS3 and it is not hard work for cf. I was getting 60fps max out 2560x1600 and barely 45% usage in both cards. My decision was then to disable cf and still 60 fps constant and 50% core usage.
