Uhm, no. WHQL test usually takes 5 days.
ah damn, was hoping this might be the 'division' driver with some FPS tweaks... i got the game running pretty solid, but I'd still like to see some driver level tweaks to it
Multiply per the number of the supported devices. You got 1-2 months.
@ 1100Mhz Core & 1450Mhz (so an extra 50Mhz on each), it pushed the score to 8251. And that's with the previous driver, not this one I believe.
Problem is my GPU is never stable beyond 1050Mhz & 1400Mhz respectively. Even though it managed the Firestrike test with no issues.
nVidia signs their own drivers within few hours.
Small increase in 3dmark firestrike here also.
Not bad this driver set. On win7 aswell as on win10.
mmmmm Fox22 I don't know if you are doing something wrong but those drawcalls are low compared to my R9 290..
Comparison 1 is 16.3.2 comparison 2 is 16.3.1
Also our versions of windows seem to differ as well,
64-bit Windows 10 (6.3.10586) (Pro)
And yours is:
64-bit Windows 10 (10.0.14295)
as we as my version of the API test is 1.0 and yours is 1.2
You have a higher score because your CPU has a higher IPC.
signed drivers are not WHQL drivers.
Nvidia CANNOT WHQL their own drivers, no one can.
So do these come with the "Enable AMD CrossFire for DirectX 9/10/11 and OpenGL applications that have no associated application profile" option, or do I still have to use an old CCC or early beta version of the Crimson software so I can use that feature?
no you don`t need to use that option anymore. but cannot enable crossfire profiles using the radeon settings of this version. so follow these instructions.
Create a profile for your game and manually choose the crossfire profile. Start from AFR Friendly, if it didn't work, switch to AFR Compatible. If you experienced shadow flickering, use optimize 1x1. That option is not coming back since it is not necessary anymore.
Can't say I noticed anything major. I don't think stutters in XCOM2 can be fixed with drivers. But I only really get them in Skyranger scenes anyway.
Read this first at least. That 175W power envelope seems way to restrictive. It needs the fan set to 100% (where it's LOUD) and PowerTune to +50 just to barely stay on 1GHZ average (with lows to 990).
I already did look at it a while back, and if you notice the performance it gained from all that gives it equal performance to that of furyx. Besides, if the card isn't up to my expectations ill send it back. I have 2 weeks and in that time i can return and get my money back without giving a reason to why i did. If the cards performs well, ill keep it and sell it at the end of the year. I wouldn't have went through any of this if i had my r9 290 pcs+, but no replacement, and noway i am paying more for the same (390/x). Fury/x cost more.
You could try to flash your card with the right BIOS in this archive:
It's an archive of BIOSes modded by The Stilt for Tahiti based cards. Use the BIOS with the same ID of the one of your card and you should be fine.
Keep vRAM at BIOS freq and overclock the GPU only.
This is a result of my 7970 back in june 2015 with modded BIOS (Q9550 rig)
That method doesn't work at all for some games. Try it with Rainbow Six:Siege for instance.
Good News: Got a alltime high 3DMark score
Bad News: Need for Speed has serious micro stuttering not seen in 16.3.0
Thanks for trying to help, but I've already discussed this with PrMinisterGR who modded the BIOS for me that I'm currently using.
You see my Gigabyte HD7970 OC (Revision 1.0) was an overclock beast when it was first released and I had bought it. Just a simple BIOS Mod, increase the voltage, and BAM overclock it to speeds which yield massive performance gains. However, after about a year I had to return it to warranty as there was a fan issue. I got a free replacement and it was Revision 2.0, logically you'd think Rev 2.0 would have improvements. However between those two revisions (in that 1 year time), Gigabyte re-branded my videocard and named it the Gigabyte 7970 Ghz Edition, and voltage locked my 7970 OC Edition with hardware voltage resistors.
So trust me when I say this, no matter WHAT voltage the BIOS tells my videocard to take, even if the BIOS and Applications report otherwise, the GPU is not receiving more than 1.175 Volts I believe (which is the default for my card). The only way to fix the problem is to use soldering and remove one the voltage resistors on the GPU and I don't want to risk that. Which automatically pushes the voltage to 1.25v I believe from what I've read a long time ago.
Basically *^#@ Gigabyte.
Even though there are those that used to report that BIOS Mods worked, it was proven to be false countless times, here are examples:
There was a thread showing exactly what needs to be removed hardware wise (resistor on the board) for the card to unlock its voltage, but I can't find that thread now.
I use a mode bios to min ref 7970 1.2v 1200/1650 whit edit cl on mem
no high score here in firestrick it is 94XX
but i kan not overclock whit this driver :wanker:
