I got the 6970 as a Christmas present. The only game I currently play is World of Warcraft and it has been running fine until this past week. I have made no changes to my hardware but I did download the new catalyst drivers, I believe 11.10.
Normally my FPS are at around 70-90, however, in the same place and same environment in the game my FPS will drop to 10-20 for about 3 minutes and then pull back out.
I checked my temperatures and my CPU is about 34 and GPU is about 45-50C so it does not seem like a temperature issue.
^ I was using 11.08 and seemed to never have a problem. I updated to 11.09 and it seemed that the frame rates were dropping while I had 11.09 but I can not directly relate them to drivers. I downloaded the 11.10 preview drivers last night but have not tested them out. When I get off work I will play and see if the FPS still drop. Is there some type for log that I can do and post in here to enable a better way of people recognizing the problems or cancelling others out.
