Crossfire XFX 6950 2GB and LAG in Crysis 2.

So, I tried out Crysis 2 with DX11 and high texture package + everything maxed.

Can't say I got impressed, 40-50 fps? What's up with this?

Took a quick google search, and it seemed that many had the same problem with CFX 6950 in crysis 2. No fixes tho, and ive tried 11.9 CCC without luck. Also 12,3 and 12,4 but it still lags.

Downloaded radeonPRO and tried to force tripplebuffering with v-sync on, floated around 47-50 fps, how? Ive seen vids of gtx 560ti doing 60 fps + ALONE (1 card) and 6950 should be slightly better than a gtx 560.

I don't think the CPU bottlenecks the system either? I can run BF3 smoothly with 80-100 fps with EVERY setting on ultra, + full motion blur and 1920x1080.

Ive tried a lot of stuff, still bad FPS. Is this a common problem? Is there a patchfix? Give me some help guis! :pt1cable:

  3. Is your CPU overclocked?
    First, a single GTX 560ti would achieve like 28 FPS with the HQ DX11 texture/resolution pack. Second your results seems to be much normal, maybe if you overclock your CPU a little bit you'll get the max out of it.
    2 HD 6970s in CF achieve 60 FPS @ ultra 1080P
  4. Yeah, in CCC. 840/1325, but ive also tried without OC and it didnt make much difference.
  5. Well, I see that you're fine with BF3 try another bunch of games and see if there's a scaling problem, if not be happy with what you got in Crysis2.
