Still having issues with my system & BF3 my system is : I7 3820 @ 4.6ghz, XFX DD 7970 @ 1125/1575, 16gb of g.skill 1600mhz, and asus x79 sabertooth.
Resolution: 1920x1080
Settings: All Ultra, No msaa, HBSO, 16x AF, Motion blur off
I was getting around 35 avg fps with below 30 dips all the time on Caspian Border full player game [64 players] the drivers are 12.2 aka up-to-date, Although MSI afterburner doesn't say the driver version i dont know if that's normal or not i will reinstall if it isn't.

Averages of 50-60? With those settings a 7970 will average 85-125 throughout the ENTIRE game.

Two other things I will recommend as a possibility are to ensure that your power cables are fully connected, and if they are, delete your drivers and catalyst control center entirely. Download new drivers->JUST THE DISPLAY DRIVERS. And install ATI Tray Tools instead of CCC and see if CCC is defaulting some option to *on that may be causing a conflict b/c of drivers or whatever else with BF3.

And, ok this is going to sound ridiculous but you don't have some monitor that inexplicably has 30hz as a display option, and also vsync on? I know there is no chance of this, but just covering every base that comes to mind now.

Oh so you had 56 min and 89 max with 4x msaa? Yes those sound more accurate for casp border 64 player. I think your problem is resolved =). Come back if you have any more 35 fps dips while playing though.

Well the primary purpose of ATI Tray Tools is the same as CCC. It provides access to overclocking, voltages, forcing display features etc. What I was curious about with CCC was if it was forcing some crap like 16x QSAA or something with obscure options language that would make it an easy oversight. It seems like something was in fact wrong with your CCC settings since you've removed it and your fps has doubled. You could try reinstalling it and check if the FPS plummets again, in which case it's obviously a default-enabled option that you'll have to track down, or you can do some research into what the issue with ATI Tray Tools was.

I would recommend following the instruction on the pop-up for ATT b/c personally when I used AMD cards I found it to be a far better piece of software than CCC which was clunky, had horrible language, and often tons of install-bugs. That's my 2 cents though.
