    Yeah he does have a valid point. My bro has a 6990 and it runs like sh*t and he also uses 120Hz monitor so pretty much you'll be noticing the lack of frame rates. In town get 80+ then move an inch and 40fps.. some dungeons running at 5fps. So while he can play most of the game at decent frame rates, he gets turned off at the fact that getting the best isnt always going to give you the best experience. Yes the 6990 does negative scaling, you'll get performance worse than one 6970 and the new performance drivers messes up textures and gives off flickering.

    It does suck when you have dual cards or a dual gpu card and they give the "disable crossfire" as a "fix".

    This seems kinda of pointless.

    MW3 and Saints Row 3 DX9 runs on most systems very easily.

    ...just for rendering a Java Control Panel window properly we need a CAP now?

    Anyway, thanks, asder...as usual.
    Didn't realize it's your thread when I didn't see that favorite big grin green smiley of yours being put in the thread's title. :p

    This is so false.

    The single CPU thread used by that game is at 100%. Add 4x6990 cards if you'd like you aren't going to get more FPS, hence a lower performance. Your cards could allow for better scaling but the CPU can't follow.

    That is a shame to release Skyrim in such a state. The game is great otherwise. Also, I hate the vanilla textures.

    Okay I see. I guess the threading is an issue. Yet still, you'd think if you keep crossfire enabled you should run 50%/%50 if you had a dual card set up and run at the same framerate of 60 fps like a single card that is running at 100%.

    Instead, if I don't disable crossfire, I get 45-20 fps that are stuttering all over the place unless I alt tab after every cell loads or a quick save.

    I don't understand why people post that game scales in crossfire if it's utilizing both gpu but runs drastically worse. That does not seem effecient. At least I never read that on the back of the box. "Use more gpu power and while seeing no benifits! "

    Granted, it's only skyrim really. BF3 is quite satisfactory.

    So Yes, for Skyrim, just disable crossfire and run 1 gpu if it works, but yet I feel a bit cheated by the fact that I have to leave the other gpu's idle. Totally not ideal. Especially when the vram probably would be useful for while texture modding.

    I forgot where I was going with this. Sigh... back to Solitude stuttering.

    Best to point to the page in question as i had to read the whole review twice to find what your on about which did not help with your saying hitching, when its about lag on explosions.

    I personally don't get that lag on explosions and it may not be a bug at all and maybe down to NV having a more powerful geometry processing.

    Some of us AMD users may just have enough spare geometry processing with Quadfire at a given resolution for it not to be an issue, i also Vsync which saves more load on the GPUs.

    i shall install these, i don't have any of the titles mentioned but if somehow they freakyly improve skyrim through pure chance then its worth it.

    looks like amd are giving up on skyrim all we get is one "pretendo fix" that just pretends, lol amd think we are all playing skyrim seamlessly with no probs, well they already lost me as a customer over this.
    In january im getting a gtx 580.

    Here you get what i mean

    Sorry guys, at this moment running the 11.12beta 18 Nov plus 11.11 cap3 there's no single game I can't run with my CFX setup like a charm. It's annoying how people get different sort of problem with similar setups and the same drivers too...

    Skyrim is just another port. I would not fix it if I was AMD too. It is the game makers their responsibility that they make a decent game. Or does it work well on nVidia's SLI?

    Wait. If Skyrim is CPU limited, would forcing it through Radeon Pro, or through a config file break the limit.

    I did try CAP3 with my 5870 CF set up with the 11.11C drivers. I did notice a slight improvement with ultra settings. I have a 1920 by 1200 monitor. My 5870 fans run full speed when I run BF3 on ultra.

    Ya Skyrim is CPU limited!!!! AMD hands are tied.

    Bad console port is too blame.

    Turning shadows down to medium will increase your GPU usage 10 fold!!! Has something to do with the devs making too many things cpu dependent.

    You know that it doesn't matter how many cards you got, the actual vram the game uses is just from 1 card, not 2 or 3...

    You will notice an improvement in skyrim, sli or crossfire don't really help, and a single card solution would be faster (cpu is feeding 1 card, not 2, skyrim is a cpu intensive game). AMD can't find broken game code, skyrim is a console port, a very good port, but a port none the less.

    Seems so many people want to jump ship, but really don't have any idea whats happening, or that the other side of the fence is having the same issues. :bang:

    Screwed my BF3 performance (with 11.12beta 18 Nov) and can't find a way to restore it.

    Guess I'll have to delete the settings folder once again, and reinstall the original cap.

    Thnx though, Asder.
