Hi, I recently reinstalled windows and installed bf3 and for a week i could get 60-ish average frames on bf3 with most things on high settings. However now the performance seems to be dropping to 19 sometimes even on low.
My specs are:
i7-860
2 Crossfired 5870's
8gb of ram
I also just installed the 11.10 preview drivers, but still i can exactly pinpoint the problem. Please help.
EDIT: i apologise if this has been posted on the wrong section.
EDIT: Think it has been solved. Drivers with crossfire a bf3 are really twitchy and the right ones need to be installed.

aah another crossfire rig on BF3.

Try disabling hyperthreading.first then driver sweeper. You can try 11.2 ver 2 or 3 driver first.

The thing that really confuses me is that it ran fine when i first installed it. Had crossfire on and everything on high. No AA defered. But now im lucky to even get 30.

read the battlefield 3 benchmark article on here, it seems that there are some xfire issues with battlefield 3 that AMD is aware of and has come across.

I've tried finding the HT setting in my BIOS but i couldn't, could you explain how to disable it for a newbie like me. My mobo is ga-p55a-ud6 if that helps.

yeah, just nix the crossfire, you should be able to run high to med-high on that card with one. I heard you really only get 20% more power with a crossfire set-up, couple that with the finicky support for it with bf3 and well...you know the rest...
