    My game won't even load with CFX, it just goes back to the launcher.

    I know we just need a new CAP. The question is how long that will take?
    Just think about all the problems with Crysis 2 and RIFT recently. Sure, they were solved but still...

    My god, a thread full of whiners. Just give them a chance to fix stuff. Bunch of teenage whiners the gaming community is.
    And I vomited all over my keyboard after reading for the millionth time the words "epic fail" in the title.
    Everything nowadays is "epic". :puke2:

    Are you really playing in that res or is the pic upscaled?
    Because in that res low fps usually come from vram running out

    What issues do you have? I thought I fixed all mine when I got some FPS drops at the last lvls but this could have been related to way longer FoV than the previous lvls meaning more graphics to compute or something like that.

    Just adding my voice to the choir disgruntled, Radeon 5970 getting 30fps on low detail, disabling crossfire doesn't help, AFR mode runs OK but there is bad flicker.

    Jumping ship to single core Nvidia soon I reckon. :pc1::biggun:

    And that is with their beta released today. So please, by all means just do it. Because you are solely convinced that it just an AMD problem when Nvidia is having similar problems of their own. At least others will take heed as to what is being stated about this game and current drivers from the other side of the fence :).

    There will not be a high end part this year from both camps (NV and AMD), so do not hold your breath.

    As for witcher, the ubersampling kills the game straight off, I just used autodetect and it started flying straight away. I also lower shadows and other stuff nobody cares about and all is good. For a PC exclusive, the title is badly optimised, I expected by FAR a much better experience from a dated DX9 game.

    Both shots show 99% GPU usage, so everything is working perfect in those Nvidia shots.

    It's just a demanding game, people need to stop thinking something is broken, and the game has only been out a few hours, would give AMD a chance.

    Most successful Witcher 2 reports I've seen have been from 580 users, I don't mind jumping to a smaller ship if the sails are less flammable.

    The 5970 has been bugging me since I got it, 2D/3D clockspeed issues, tearing, 100% GPU bugs and mouse lag, on top of all that *every* new game I've bought this year has run badly without patches, drivers and RadeonPro tweaks.

    I had a GTX 280 until eight months ago and holy hell was it less hassle, so unless PC gaming truly has gone to hell in 2011 I'm pointing the finger at my 5970.

    Yo Re , what settings and FPS are you getting???

    @WDeranged

    Bro same card as you and @ all settings full 30-45 FPS (outside) and all settings lowest 30-45 FPS (outside). Lets hope for a CAP by Friday... and not one that disables xfire.

    I just think you are full of it. You really don't have to announce a hardware change in a forum. However, since you did post I suggest that you go right ahead and make the change. No need to get into a long winded dialogue about it. However, truth be told at this point in time neither camps are reporting any improvements with the game. Even though you choose to ignore it.

    Which in the end has nothing to do with the fact that drivers from either camp are bad. It's just one of those releases where both camps need time to perfect them. It happens all the time with this title being no exception.

    But lets not get off topic as your preference in video cards isn't really valid in a thread discussing cat drivers for a new game in a AMD driver forum. :)

    No need to be so defensive, and the topic is "CAT epic fail in witcher2" which I'm wholeheartedly attesting to...
