I can't really comment on the 50-60, but I know in black ops it has a 91 fps cap, and you have to go edit a config file to change that. since 91 is a random number for this not to be the case with COD4, I'd assume that it's the same.
maybe you only have one core running, or your ddr2 RAM is a bit too slow @ 400mHz...
Thanks for the replies, I think you could be right processor is unlocked with 4 cores, but my mobo's bios is confusing the hell out of me with acc | it seems to unlock and post only with certain parameters. I'm not sure what core control is but it could be set to one core, Also did a test with it as standard but still same fps
I have a suspicion it's the vista I am using is not unlocked, maybe dx drivers or catalyst might be fighting lack of sp2.
You download the Crossfire Application Profiles when you do driver updates from AMD right? If not that could definitely cause an issue. You might also be forcing through extra settings in Catalyst like SSAA for example which obviously could bog down performance.
Well.....I dunno Im thinking I set the fsb too high, it would not post at all even after resetting the battery leaving it unplugged for an hour then coming back, switched out almost every part and psu too, everything seems fine that was moved over.
Where would I find a crossfire profile for 5970, amd.com? Also I've had some screen tearing in mafia2 but all cases of it are gone. Only seemed to happen while overclocking on the other board. I used ATI overclock utility from catalyst so i'm hesitant to rma it to sapphire since I hear they charge a ransom for an overclocked card. They are requesting I send it in.
Sorry, replied to soon didn't see the post, Ya the Xfire is logo-ed in the upper right hand corner. Looks like fraps is low on multiplayer but not on singleplayer, just did the pit on moderwarfar2 came out around 112-125 frams civ is still runnin slow kinda retarded if you ask me. maybe its my memory timings? zoom in and out is snail
that the stock for my sapphire 5970 should run 51 fps on stock I have oc to 825c and 1250 memory but the frames remain at 34-41fps
on their website the setup they used was an I7 set to 3.2 im wondering if my x4 970 is creating a bottleneck at 4.0ghz. I use dominator vengeans 88824 their timings are 126.96.36.199 on 12800.
Furmark revenge of the furry donut vs 1.9:
Running fullscreen with regular bench settings giving me a score of 5103 and on their score chart im scoring roughly around where a single 4870 would score
With gpuz ran with furmark it says my cores are drawing hardly more than 50w a peice
Also most games run but with alot of stuttering also uningine stutters often or shakes a bit. This is after I formatted and reinstalled windows 7 64 bit with minimum drivers and catalyst 11.2 fresh install. Im out of ideas besides RMA or cpu bottleneck.
Im going to RMA as long as Msi afterburn hasn't void warranty.
