I've got two 6950's in crossfire, and just got Skyrim. Of course, maxed it out. Started playing and felt like 30- FPS. Dialed it down to 4 AA samples and 12 AAA samples, but still get like 35 to 40 FPS. Is this right, or is something wrong? I've got 11.11, so profiles aren't wrong. Right?

What resolution? I hear a lot of people have problem with Skryim with AMD drivers, might just have to wait till the next driver release.

What is your CPU? System spec?

Using single AMD 6870 im getting 40-100fps , sometimes drop to ~25fps for few seconds at some scenes with slightly modified ultra settings, (4x adaptive multi-sample AA, 8x AF)

It could be that you manually set some setting to wrong values

Could be a CPU bottleneck Skyrim require high IPC, something AMD CPU's are not very good at.

He has intel i7 x.x.

Try running one card instead of two see if it fixes it.

Alright. Can I just go into Catalyst and disable CFX? Also, don't think it is a CPU bottleneck, as it is an i7 970. Really wish I knew all about the i7-2600k at the time I bought my rig. Bought it back in April, and thinking back, I should have built it myself.

I think you can. Nothing is stopping you from trying.
