Thats a game/CPU related issue, UBI probably never fix it.
Latest performs better in Valley Benchmark:
Extreme HD Preset Score:
13.2b4 | 1478
13.2b6 | 1606
Ubi never even admits to bugs, let alone fixes them.
I have a friend that works for Ubisoft Montreal, he says they are well aware of the disaster that is the AC3 port...
Great drivers so far
Had to do a clean install of Windows due to corrupt files and nothing I did could fix them. No biggy, not lost anything really important. I was please to see BETA6 uploaded as I was going to install BETA4 again due to the bugs in BETA5 but I downloaded this one and installed.
All nice, BF3 is super smooth. 1080p, High Preset, 48 player server and fps never dipped below 80fps very nice indeed.
Also Crysis 2 is superb with these. BETA4 and 5 gave me slight dips in fps with DX11+Hi res textures. But this one gives a lot smoother frames, maxed out its giving around 50fps average during heavy battles happy chappy!
Small increase in Valley
Are these drivers bringing back latency problems? Im waiting which one will do
No, Skyrim still works fantastically. They probably won't add latency problems agains. Bad PR.
Unlike Beta5, no pixelated corruption in Just Cause 2 and Black Ops 2
Slightly newer versionof CCC and OpenGL (beta5 was xx.12171)
Still, even the D3D should be newer than previous Betas despite the same version number because of the all the fixes it contains.
Im getting B&W checker block squares over the top right of Firefox with these
Is that 7870 a Tahiti LE version or a normal Tahiti? I have heard nothing but horror stories with people and their 7870 or 7850 cards using anything but 12.11 beta 11 only the lucky few are having little to no problems.
The Tahiti LE is meant to be a much better revision, giving great performance against price and having a ton of overclocking headroom.
No idea, how do I check? It overclocks easily to 1200MHz without any voltage bump
I know mine has the Dual-X stickers on the fans, which seem to be the more bugless revision of the card
I have no HDMI audio with B5 and B6 too. (I have to reinstall the HDMI driver manually every time I start my rig) Obviously the same HDMI driver, but this is a major issue, they should be fixing it.
No boost here on the Valley 1.0. Both are 38fps, but the minimum got from 22 to 8 with b6, but that could be just a one time benchmark issue.
Something isn't quite right with those results. Could you try a few things?
1. Remove pagefile. Reboot
2. Defrag the HD(s) without page file.
3.Process all idle tasks. At the Run prompt type: %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks
Wait about 5 minutes or so. You're HD light should show very little activity when it's done.
4. Open CMD with admin rights and type:
WinSAT.exe formal -restart clean
Once complete reboot, enable pagefile and try the test again.
The Tahiti LE has 1536 SP not 1280
I do not have any page file, defragged two of my drives last week, some unnecessary startup services are disabled etc. The minimum fps gets recorded when switching between scenes (transitions) so I guess my harddrive is to blame (80-100MB/s Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB, 32MB cache). One thing I could try is to put the benchmark on the AMD Ram Drive (5500-7500MB/s).
Really? They released the 7870 twice with an upgraded revision?
umm...it says Pitcairn. Not Tahiti.
I had problem with HDMI audio too in B5 and B6. To provisory fix reverse toh old audio driver. This worked to me.
Yea exactly, I'm just replying to the claim
