ATI 5970 - Graphical Glitches And Artifacts
Feb 16, 2012, 1:33 AM
I had this problem a long time ago, it went away and I forgot about it. However recently, it has reappeared. I have not changed anything in the last 5 months or more. Today I tried the newest drivers, and I get the same thing.
Here are some examples of what happens:
Does anyone here have any ideas what could be causing this?
ASUS P6X58D-E X58 ATX LGA1366
Coolermaster Haf 922
G.SKILL F3-12800CL6T-6GBPI Pi Series 6GB 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL6-8-6-20
5970 @ stock
G.SKILL Phoenix Pro 120GB SSD

Not to sure what set of drivers you are using, Try updating the drivers or download an older set of drivers. Just completely uninstall the drivers 1st, could be left over stuff causing the artifacts.
