Welp, I went ahead and ordered a 980 and financed it so I have 12 months to pay it off no interest.
If big Maxwell shows up before then and is crazy more powerful, i'll just cut my losses and sell it to my brother for cheap and buy that. Or sell it on ebay for cheap.
Why 2F for Borderlends 2? The effect is unstable.
Flag Gears of War (21) is stable. No flicker, no "cube", no manifestations through the interface.
Congratulations with your new card
But of course it is never funny, when hardware fails in such a way as your 570 GTX did
The 980 is a good choice at this point for Single GPU, since it is reasonably affordable due to "980 Ti" or whatever coming out around March or April.
Personally I'm holding out for two 6GB next generation Maxwell cards.
4GB is pushing it at 4K in some games today, if you want to go nuts with AA settings and so on in SLI mode
Yeah, that's why I mentioned that i'd eventually just sell it and use that and pay the difference for a better card if I want to have good AA at the best settings for future games
Some videos or screenshots would be nice. Only have posted what others have tested and thought to be working. I don't have BL2 so I can't test myself.
Screenshots and videos do not capture it ("cube" and manifestations through the interface...there is only barely noticeable flicker). I tried FRAPS and MSI Afterburner.
I believe the original tester complained about ghosting issues with "0x00000020".
So you are saying these problems are not present with "21" in BL2?
Please remember to test both with and without DoF enabled.
20 has the "cube" and visual artifacts with and without DoF. Flickers.
With 2F, I did not notice the visual artifacts but there were flickering and the "cube".
21 works with and without DoF. For all time use did not notice the flicker. No the "cube" and no manifestations through the interface. If you hate halo - select performance.
21 HQ HBAO+.
21 HQ HBAO+ without DoF.
21 HQ HBAO+ with DoF.

No AO: http://abload.de/img/offpsqvt.png
Notes: Tested with 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 resolutions. No flickering, and no bleeding.
Effect is very subtle but is the only solution ATM since all the other compatible flags bleeded through almost every game element, such as hud, smoke, water, fog and even player's weapon.
HBAO+ in Deus EX: Invisible War is "impossible" without major flickering issues.
HBAO+ Flag "03"
Interesting, I've reinstalled the game today to test 21 again, and I'm still getting flickering right off the bat. 1920x1080p, max settings except AA off, 340.52 drivers. What are your settings?
Hitman: Blood Money
Tested at 1600x900 only on the first stage.
• Very little flickering on the environment (hardly worth mentioning).
• No effect is applied to 47, or around him near surfaces, but on rare occasions it'll apply. Not applied | Applied
Link does not work.
I used the maximum settings. 1080p. FXAA disabled (HBAO+ works with FXAA). Driver 347.25 WHQL.
I have never encountered a flicker with 21.
Seems "0x00000004" used to work for SSAO in Silent Hunter 4 with the older drivers:
Somebody might want to retest it with the HBAO+ implementation
lol, that is Gears of War.
The discussion was about Borderlands 2
Oh, I thought he was talking about Gears as well, never mind then.
It happens )
Update for Borderlands 2.
21 is not perfect. I met flicker when my shield was struck by the elements.
But "0x00000021" is still a better option than "0x0000002F" in BL2?
If that is the case, then it is still worth changing the HBAO+ listing to this new flag IMO.
