My ATI 5970 problem!!

Hello there,I recently brought
a 5970. I run 3D mark vantage and I get a quite high score.GPU score is 25491.Then I play the Crysis . I saw 30-40 fps with 5970.Sometimes even 20 fps.I'm very puzzled.If anybody can tell me what's happened??

My PC is:
Core i7 920
GIGABYTE EX58-UD3R
Kingston hyerX 2G*3 1600
ATI HD5970
Coolmaster 650W
Windows 7 64bit Ultimate

    I opend all the game special effect. 8AA.
  3. What screen resolution are you running? 1680x1080, 1920x1080?
    Are you overclocking your i7 920?
  4. 8xAA plus all settings cranked in Crysis is still able to bring the latest graphics cards to their knees. Believe me - it's normal.
  5. If you have AA cranked up max, you should download the UltraHigh graphics mod and tone down AA to ~x4. It'll look way better with less of a performance hit.

    That said the 5970 should do fine in resolutions up to 1920x1080/1200. At 2560x1600, it'll take a huge performance hit in Crysis at higher graphical settings.

    You means I should change my screen to a larger one??

    Is your GPU overclocked? If it is, return it to stock clocks.
    Is your fan working OK? If it isn't, send for a replacement.

    ^I think that's the latest patch for Crysis.

    Yes, my GPU has overclocked a little. My fan works ok.
    I will download what you have given me. But I think I have already downloaded the latest GPU drivers . It's 10.2 version. Is it possible that there comes a new one??
    Thank you.
  15. 10.3 should be out this month.

    No if you have the 10.2 drivers,there isn't "Official" new driver except for 10.2 hotfix which is for AVP and mouse problems,also the driver that radiowars posted is an older driver(i think its 9.11)
    Just download the Crysis 1.2 patch and see how it works
  18. I'm in Shanghai . It is difficult for me to find the 10.2 hotfix..Could you please send me a URL? Thank you!
  19. It doesn't depend on where you live,you can find it from amd.com,here it is :

    But i don't think it will have an effect on Crysis,as i said try patching the game with the link that radiowars posted
