Yes. I am actually running off an 8800GTX right now until my 5870 is fixed, i get flickers, artifacts, or the screen goes white and crashes. I have a buddy with a GTX260 that has similar issues. Ironically the one has a 8800GT and it is fine.
My 5870 only had artifact issues, but never crashed. It failed a diagnostics test with errors, but never actually had issues. I've heard several people mention issues with nvidia cards and BC2. I know turning up the fans helped me a bit, and keeps the card at 70C rather than 80C.
Pnico- is there a crossfire profile for BC2 yet? If not, I'm guessing its probably just a quadfire related issue with that particular title. Try running it with a single card rather than both and see what happens.
im not sure if there is a profile..but with cfx..the game runs horribly..
then again is it true that cfx and eyefinity dont run well because i was under the impression that 10.2 and higher support eyeinity and cfx
I'm running dual 8800 GT XFX XXX's in SLI without issue. I remember the BETA had flickering issues as well as black holes, but that all seems to be fixed. The only crashing I've experienced is with punk buster and java (happens occasionally); the most recent Java updated fixed the issue.
Also, I had to bring the my X2 4200+ back down to stock speeds as BFBC2 would freak out on maps with 32 players. Otherwise, golden at low settings (my CPU/bus are definitely bottlenecks).
Crossfire does work, but I don't think they have a profile for it yet, which will IMPROVE crossfire performance. Also- Quadfire is much more dependent on the profile than regular dual card/dual GPU crossfire.
Apologize for us ATI guys hijacking your thread - but also get this flickering during gaming. Sort of like watching a tv/monitor in an old movie - lines rolling across the screen. 5850's in Crossfire. Does look like a bad profile. Im thinking the same is true for NV.
So maybe the answer is many of the SLI/Crossfire crowd are seeing weird graphic issues with BFBC2. Not just ATI or NVidia.
I thought i was having graphics/psu failure or something!! I have two GTX 280's SLI'd and i myself get the screen flickering as well as crash's during and right after the round is won.
I have everything set on high w/ HBAO on. If i can remember correctly, it may have happened before i SLI'd the cards..... It is probably a driver issue, i am hoping! We will see what happens. Anyone else find more research on this matter or try to contact EA forums about this?
