Haven't gotten to CFX just yet, single card radeons are fine though.
AMD 290x is leaving the 780ti for dust , these 290x sure were a good buy and still going strong .
Take a look at 770, its getting beaten by 370 aka 7850. That's sad...
Lirik @twitch just turned off all nvidia shadows in order to get stable 60fps on his tri titanXs lmfao.
**** nvidia honestly.
Flickering confirmed and also identified with FCAT, it's pretty bad ... you'll want to revert to one GPU for now.
364.47 is listed as WHQL for me in GPU-Z but maybe not .51 because it's a HF driver and not a beta really.
-- Added all graphics cards, added multi-GPU added FCATS.
That seemed to go by really quickly. Was expecting it to take a day or so. Thanks for the review!
Thanks Hilbert. Great work as always.
Is it just me or does sli scaling seem ridiculous especially at 4k.
It's the second time that I notice the 980'ies all of the sudden cave in at Ultra HD while doing fine at WHQD. Weird to observe indeed, might be VRAM related. I very much doubt the Ti would show this. I however am putting all multi-GPU testing on hold for now (for this article), both teams need mGPU driver fixes badly.
BTW AMD Crossfire users, are you guys all experiencing what I am measuring and seeing ? I am wondering how isolated or grand the issues are. I would appreciate some feedback.
I don't know. On nvidia guide they recently posted for this game, they have ti's at about the same framerate that you have 980's at, so it would not suprise me that much if they are close.
Alright, I'll likely check out with a couple of Ti's tomorrow. I however am checking out now ! Been working on this article for 13hrs straight. Enjoy the article guys, and if you are playing it .. the game :nerd:
Thank You Sir. Have a good one and get some rest. Hopefully I can test it out tonight with 980ti's at 4k but im hesitant to upgrade from the older .00 drivers.
Yes, the flickering is terrible on my triple crossfire 290x setup, the FPS count is up but it doesn't feel smooth, I think there is a bad case of micro stuttering as well... going back to single GPU until they fix it.
Thanks for the time and effort Hilbert Still not sure if I will spent my hard earned cash on this one yet?
on a computer of a friend in xfire of R9 290 it happen too, he was thinking that a card died, but in fact it was only the division...
it is more usable with single GPU.
this game leave me like BF hardline, it could have been good...
but the gameplay suck so much that at the end the game is not good at all lol
this is my own feeling about it after few hour testing the R9 290...
Crossfire for me is pretty much all flickers and indoors it flickers so much I get an instant headache. It doesnt end there tho, crossfire also makes the game blurry, as if the renderer wasnt deleting last rendered frames on screen so its a motion blur everywhere. Im kinda upset but cant say im surprised by amd, they had the game for a while and gave us a driver thats supposed to be crossfire ready. weird standards they have.
I disabled my crossfire, did vsr to 3200x1800, went all high and ultra to be around 30-40 fps and its really good looking game.
This is what AMDMatt said on other forum about crossfire issue:
16.3 driver will come tomorrow
Ultra preset for me, 35fps avg @4k on 980ti SLI. Driver .00 not the latest. Let me tell you though it feels sooooo below that, it's unplayable. It feels in all actuality like 15 fps. The game is so choppy/stuttery. Very disappointed. Even switching to High preset nets me 55fps but it still feels utterly un-smooth as hell.
edit next time take my own advice. Tried to update to 364.51 and I think it just went haywire.
The installer crashed but it seems after it updated the drivers. Games seem to be working ok.
Update. Updated to the newest drivers and they make a world of difference. The framerate still fluctuates wildly from 30's to 60's but it feels better then the .00 driver. This time on ultra i averaged 53fps at 4k with sli enabled. lot better then previous drivers 35.
Another update. In game still is not smooth at all. Moving the mouse to look around at least to me, is a microstutter fest. Walking is ok but looking with mouse is bad. Feels no where near 50fps. For me the benchmark right now is useless as its not as smooth in game as in the benchmark. Can anyone else confirm.
