    Hey guys,

    How's Skyrim doing with CFX?

    Here what I found from user pahamrick at Neogaf:

    Is AMD into it?

    Where are these profiles you speak of? I can't find anything about picking profiles in radeonpro, only creating ones from games already installed.

    Hey guys, I had severe texture flickering too right from the start, it really broke the game for me which totally bummed me out, but after messing with some settings in catalyst CC I discovered that having anti-aliasing set to adaptive MSAA was the cause, setting it to super-sample made it go away entirely, aside for the occasional flicker of something far off in the distance, but I can forgive that due to the overall gorgeousness of the game.

    Now I just need to get around these darn frame rate issues.

    Had to disable CF for now until AMD release a CAP. Game performs a lot better with a single card, and I can maintain 60FPS with everything on high and all AA options maxed (includes FXAA)

    how does the gaming industry not work together on these major games? I mean the 6 series is the flagship of only two gpu manufacturers and they cant work together to get proper drivers out before release, we as consumers are such suckers buying and preordering first day releases, and its also sad that mw3 is the smoothest triple a title to drop this year:3eyes:

    Go to the "Advanced" Tab, you'll find the "Catalyst AI" option slider, set it to Disabled.

    Reporting i also had to use RP to fix the CFX scaling and indeed, the Oblivion profile does wonders.

    Before= 22-35 FPS, now with Oblivion profile i get 40-60 FPS (capped at 60) on Ultra 1920x1080 w/4xAA 8xAniso and it runs really smooth and no crashes. :banana:

    Radeon Pro to create a new profile.

    Another method it to use the "dll" file to force the profile, i've just tested it and it works, same FPS boost.

    Place the "atiumdag.dll" inside the zip, into your Skyrim folder, the game will load that file on launch.

    Heavily CPU dependent.

    With a Phenom II at 3.5 GHz: 46fps, Ultra, 4xMSAA, 16AF on GTX570, min 30fps
    With a i52500k at 4 GHz: 66 fps, Ultra, 4xMSAA, 16AF on GTX570, min 43.

    Damn. Anything above dual core is useless!



    Interesting read from HardOCP

    AMD screwed up again.
