I have an xfx radeon 4870 512mb and I can't get auto-tune to work. Everytime I click on it my screen gets these green, red, and grey stripes. The thing says it takes a few minutes, but my screen stays like this for more than 10 minutes. To get out I just press escape, but i'm sure this isnt how to do it.
Can someone give me some help?
I've got the phenom x4 955 BE and a really new motherboard and RAM btw.
I have never had much luck with the auto tune. It's not that good to be perfectly honest.
Usually a 4870 has no issues clocking to 800MHz on the GPU and 1000Mhz on the Memory. I would be confident just going in and manual setting these right off the bad. I had a 4870 and did ALOT of experimenting. I believe my stable clocks were 820/1050 with the fan profile on auto. Once at the 800/1000 speed, I would let it run for a few weeks to make sure it is stable, and then you can creep up the clocks if you desire.
I've got a brand new OCZ 550watt PSU, and I havn't had any problems doing benchmarks or prime95, or testing some games. I have the newest catalyst/driver for windows 7 64bit. It's on AMD.com if you wanna see it. Has anyone else had this problem? The screen also gets the strippes if i do the test custom tune option.
Same thing happens to my current ASUS 4890 1GB and a 4870X2 that I had. All my games work fine at stock frequencies and at CORE 920MHZ, GDDR 1050MHZ.
When I click on "AUTO TUNE" from the CATALYST software my screen switches to a static image. It is an image with stipes, green, orange and gray fading vertical lines, it is not "artifacts" it is a static image. You can switch out of it as you would any other window or program within Windows with ALT+TAB
