I am getting some crazy artifacts with my 5870 crossfire set up and battlefield three. I've got the 11.9 drivers and the battlefield CAP. My fps is great but the artifacts are unbearable. I will post a pic when I get back to the pc. I know I'm not really providing a lot of info, but I don't eve know what the problem is. Has anyone else had issues with Battlefield 3 and ATI crossfire setups?
Concerning the CrossFireX stuttering mentioned above, AMD has informed us that the 11.9 CAP 3 that was recommended to install for BF3 is actually the culprit for the stuttering behavior with CFX in this game. AMD recommends to uninstall the CAP and only install Catalyst 11.10 Preview 3 driver. If you already have the CAP installed, your best bet is to uninstall the CAP as well as the driver, and re-install just the driver with no CAP. We have tested this by removing the CAP, and on our system the stuttering with 6970 CFX is gone. We experienced no negative impact to performance in the game by removing the CAP. The gameplay experience is much better with the CAP uninstalled.
"One note – about the stuttering for CFX, the latest CAP is causing that, once you remove it, you should be fine…we’re on it and fixing it as we speak." -AMD
After setting CAP4 generally hangs up at appearance of the first picture, but also without it CROSSFIRE doesn't work, FPS as well as with one card, again AMD have brought, we wait official for the driver or it is played with one card!!!

I think AMD fixed the problem because there are updated drivers as of 11/30. Let us know if it fixes the problem I won't have the game till this weekend but have the same hardware. Crossfire 5870s with i7920.
