thanks for rapidshare links
Does anybody have problem with rivatuner with 9.11 betas? After 9.11 rivatuner shows wrong info about second gpu in idle. It shows that second gpu is in %100 usage and core clock is in 3D clocks, but it isn't. It shows the termal readings right and no problem with the first gpu's info.
There is no need to be rude.
I suggested you that, because seems like nobody had the game or the time to try it.
Don't sweat it Merola, someone must have pissed in his cereal. I didn't see anything wrong with what you posted. Not everyone that reads through these threads has a photographic memory. We need to be reminded what was said most of the time. Shut the hell up, was just not warranted here.
actually when i first read mero's post it did come across as cheeky. but then looking again I realised it was harmless and merely a suggestion. although most of the time when someone says this it implies someone is being lazy.
never jump to conclusions...
Lol, thank you both
I suggested that because he maybe was loosing time.
I didn't remembered what he wrote. :bang:
If i have the game, i will try it, to help him. But i don't have it.
I have exactly the same problem, anyone ????
found out ccc is showing second core 0 / 0 if this really works i love it, but i dont have a wall power meter, so i cant really check it !
Me was waiting for this feature for ages !!!!
My HD5870 worked fine in Vista 64 with all the games I threw at it. Since installing Windows 7 retail Ultimate 64, DiRT crashes when entering any race, GRID flies and then momentarily freezes for a split second and Empire gets split second freezes after about 5 to 10mins into a battle. GTA IV works superbly, as does Crysis in 32bit mode DX10 and NFS Shift runs just as well as Vista i.e OK, but shows signs of optimisation needed.
One last strange thing is that my Win 7 score wont read anything other than a 6.0 for Graphics and Aero score in the Experience Index. I'd expect to be getting into the 7.9 area.
This is with all available drivers for the HD5870 at the moment available including the 2 sets here. All have been installed with safe mode driver sweep before hand. If I go back to Vista, issues are gone.
so u def tried the 9.11 betas and u use driver sweeper and ati uninstall drivers from setup?
am using the 9.11 betas and ETW runs fine. but not def not perfect as there is a bit of unit lag. strangely medwar2 kingdoms is perfect. i think it's a driver issue. still the game is running pretty well.
i just installed tomb raider underworls and was blown away with the graphics until i got to a part where my fps would drop from 120 or so to 15fps. is very strange.
cod w@w/op fp2/champions online all fly.
did u format hard drives when changing os?
i did a fresh install when changing nvidia to ati and also use drivers sweeper a lot.
So you are running Win 7 retail?
Thanks for the suggestions. But it was installed fresh, on new formatted hd. No other GPU's before hand. Driver sweeper on every change of driver. Running 9.11's. Tried them all though.
No issues at all with blu ray play back, visual data corruption etc. I even tried disabling all cpu overclocks, sound card etc. This is definitely squarely resting with the ATi GPU it would seem and its drivers. I cant think of anything else to try. Though maybe try a couple of other settings in CCC...
Did you apply patch 1.1 yet ?
well i downloaded from steam so i thought steam would update latest patches. i just checked in the update list and all it mentions is latest update 2008 december.
gonna check in-game now.
just checked couldnt find any mention of which version i have...so it looks like i havent got patch 1.1. isnt steam meant to do that?
seems like patch 1.1 is from december...
"Issue with door lever at Kraken room entrance"
could be this is where i get a massive fps drop. there's a door and some pressure pads and when i step on them fps goes to hell. (its right nr the start after u swim and use the three keys).
(yeah i think it was the kraken door because now i can see the kraken. just did the door and no fps issues.)
Anyone noticed if the stuttering in FC2 Dx10 is fixed with this set? It sucks getting 60 fps and having to cap it at 45 just for it to run stutter free.
i did ...it seems fixed. running smoothly @60fps (v-sync on) - no stutter.
running on win7/64 bit, 9.11 beta.
Yep FC2 running fine for me too. Even more reinforces that my other issues are purely driver related.
Chop, chop then ATi
FC2 stutter is still there for me; just tested. Stutter is only there when fps dip below refresh rate, which is why when it is capped at 45 it runs stutter free but not as smooth when running at 60 fps. With the 5870 it likely never goes below 60 fps with maxed settings. I’m going to test by putting in another 4890, or perhaps 5870.
why not run without v-sync?
Because then I have stuttering and tearing.
Yeah I'm of the vsync is a must camp personally.
Yup vsync 60hz all the way.
