    Its not just AMD that are a complete failure in BF3, as Nvidia are to, they have SLi problems, and you can't run the game on any lower than a 400 series apparently (as Dx10's buggered for Nvidia), or you get this :-

    I'm so tired of Guru's kiddie threads with people declaring **** like AMD fails with BF3.
    Game is running silky smooth on my rig. 5870 and X6. Using BF3 preview 3 driver.

    I think people who found problem with the game is using multi gpu setup~
    Me for an example~ i just cannot run the game with both 5970 and 5870 crossfire~ but it runs fine with single 5870~
    so in your case~ you shouldnt find any problem

    Well, i gave up on multi GPU solutions, whether it be SLI or CFIRE.
    I think it's better just to buy the best high end GPU...less hassles.

    Blesner try these steps

    Get rid of CAPS
    Turn off hyperthreading in the bios
    Clean install of Preview3
    Textures High
    MSAA OFF (Do Post High instead)

    You should be golden after that.

    Ninja edit. What are your clocks on the 5970? Good luck bro !!

    Remove all cap reinstall driver 10.10 preview 3.

    I have no stutter at all and all work perfectly smooth ( just cant set v-sync as i don't know why it revert to 100hz each time, and my monitor is going crazy with it ( black screen "use optimal setting 1920x1080-60hz" )

    Ultra setting, HBAO and FXAA - 1920x1080

    fraps:
    1st zone tested ( market enter second mission ) 96 min, 144 max , 112.268 Average

    2st zone tested ( a bit further) : 82 min, 106max , 92.308 average

    3st zone tested : 61 min, 102 max, 81.150 average ..

    average on single player is 80 -110fps depending the zone of bench. ( i have not a lot of zone to bench as i have just install the game )

    can be a lot lower on certain zone, but still better of what i was think. Will fraps it on the same zone of Guru3D and will be able make a comparaison then.

    edit
    Side note: i have not test CAP4 yet....

    If someone have info about the sync for the monitor resolution.

    Using Catalyst 11.9 and still get green & red screen flicker.

    It's not as frequent as it was in the beta, but it still is annoying.

    I've noticed that when I have AA enabled it happens more...

    HI all,

    I Finaly fixed my stutter problems with my cfx setup
    Full clean with atiman
    10.11 v3 and cap4
    put all my setting and high in stead of ultra msaa off and post on high, hboa on, af 16x

    But still i am not really happy.
    When i run gpu - z i see that my gpu loads on bouth 5870 are 60% to a max of 75%.
    when i play on a singly gpu i have 100% load...

    How can i fix this? Or is my cpu bottlenecking this?
    Also i feel i should be able to play on ultra (msaa off).
    But I guess i will be able to play on ultra when drivers are fixed with my rig?

    Tnx for the help in advance

    edit: I read that alot of poeple are fixing there gpu load by putting textures on high in stead of ultra but that didnt do it for me...

    In Bfbc2 i have the same problem. In Bf vietnam i have 2 times 95%+ load...

    edit 2: my main 5870 has 2 gig ram and my second only has 1 gig v ram... Could this cause any problems??

    1 gig is not enough to run everything on ultra, check ur vram usage with gpu z. ( It doesnt matter that ur second card has 2g in cfx ittl be reduced to the lowest amount, which is 1gig )

    Thank you Postman, Should I reinstall caps and Preview 3 after that?
    Or what CAP and driver should I use.

    Is it worth getting another HD 6950 for Crossfire? How is the micro-stutter?

    My current 6950 is ok, I'm running a mix of high/medium settings @ 1080p to maintain 70-80fps average.

    I would like to enable at least 2XMSAA, but when I do my FPS is like 50-60 no matter how low my other settings are. At those frame rates the movement is sluggish, feels like I'm running in mud.

    If there is too many issues with crossfire, I'll wait until the 7970 is out.

    Just run 11.10 preview driver. Dont install any caps.

    If you have errors at startup, just reboot. It seems like it s a bug in these preview drivers.

    Sure it runs ok on a low-end basic setup with 1 monitor. For those of us with high-end setups, AMD and BF3 are a fail combination.

    Yup, everyone is complaining about ATI and Nvidia the same, but I am thinking it is a BF3 issue even more so, why all the same problems... btw I am running a gtx 260, and it is stuttering like a dirty bitch. So all those thinking they can switch over to Nvidia to fix their problems, think again bitches!
