I would like to ask for help with this problem:
-3x24" LCD's, 1920x1080
-6950 on ASUS P55 mobo, (8x+8x lines)
2xDVI connection on card, miniDP->DP->Sapphire "active" adapter(without USB), eyefinity certified
everything works fine, thos framerates could be better..
I bought another 6950, made crossfire happen (1 or 2 bridges, no change) and there it was, ugly horrible tearing of screen + anything moving(like muzzle fure from shots,etc.) leaves chessboard effect, completely devasting experience..
Help please ?
thanks, ur very kind, but it seems it's not working
couple thoughts: not sure, but my friend came like a week b4 i bought a 2nd one, i tried 3dMark11 and maybe couple games, i don't remember it beign there..
Another friend i due to come tommorow(today! ) with another one.. think it's gonna change something ? Seems to be pretty common thing, not just my bad luck with one card..
Btw. my 1st one is Sapphire, 2nd is Gigabyte.. B4 a week it was Gigabyte, tommorow it's gonna be Sapph also
(very wild gpu utilization differences..ranging from "the same" to "0%-90%"usually 50+60,30+90..every second different, but could be loading still.. loading was like 5mins (!) and i played like 1 min)
I am sory, i don't understand I am not the native speaker, obviously.
What was the point of testing max vs min settings ? Seems like vsync IS causing the tearing .. crysis warhead minimum- 60 fps, vsync, chess
metro 2033 minimum, 74 fps, no vsync(right?no settings for it, but since it's more than 60..) and no chess(i believe, gonna confirm now)
Make sure your cards have the same BIOS version. If they are exactly the same it shouldn't be a problem, but you may want to check the manufacturer's site for an updated BIOS. Uninstall your current drivers, run driver sweeper to remove any settings they left behind, and then install the latest drivers.
I had the same problem with my 5870s when I bought a second one, but my first card was using an older BIOS and after I updated it I had to reinstall the drivers and then everything was peachy. It's kind of a pain since it seems most people who do crossfire don't have that problem when they add a second card, but there you go.
thanks for reading up
well, i do have different manufacturers actually, it's sapphire and gigabyte, tho both are reference cards, but i do believe i read something about Sapphire got some different VID so.. it's like they don't really like themselves
Due in the evening i am promised that friend will come with his sapph 6950, so i am curious about that one
And also, i tried 11.2 and 11.4 drivers, with drivers sweeper and reg cleaning even, no prb there i hope
Please put up any future files on on a non-country TLD, and videos on youtube.
Does V-Sync affect the artifacts? If not don't enable it.
Since none of your mentioned games (BFBC2, Crysis, Metro) use OpenGL leave Triple-Buffering off.
Try plugging the 6950's in different slots, same with monitor cables.
Are you temps ok?
