Catalyst 12.3 drivers
Rig is stable 99% of the time. Get the odd crash now and then, but very rare, unless... in WoW when I enable x8 MSAA, hit apply, screen goes black, video eventually disables (monitor standby / no input) lights remain on PC, Keyboard, Mouse etc, but have to hard reset.
x4 MSAA I do not get the problem and all is stable. Before going XFire with the second card, I could enable x8 MSAA.
I haven't attempted to check quite so thoroughly in other games, all I do know is I run them all on max / ultra settings and smooth as, BF3, Rift, SWTOR, StarCraft 3, Skyrim etc.
Just wondering why Im effectively getting a hardware crash/lock in a game, albeit WoW, and if anyone knows any solutions, other than not playing it ;-)
As opposed to just allowing ATI CCC to upgrade them each time the new version is released? So remove drivers, standard VGA, then reinstall?
I guess I could try that, the question then is what version should I regress too??
Uninstall / reinstall made no difference. In fact, probably made it worse. Now when alt-tab out of WoW and back in, just get very bad artifacts / blocks over 90% of screen.
That's with 12.3 drivers. Think I may revert to 11.x something.
