hi all.

my problem in the sky of Skyrim:


2: (sorr, it's youtube's optimize)


In the sky, the artifacts and it flashes and flickers. Serious obstacle to play.


My hardware:

Gigabyte LGA1155 GA-Z77-DS3H Z77
Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1 Ghz OEM
12 GB (2x4096 DDR3 1600Mhz Kingstone HyperX + 2x2048 DDR3 1600Mhz Kingstone HyperX)
Sapphire AMD Radeon РВ7850 2048 MB

W7 & game installed on SSD (120Gb OCZ Agility 3 SandForce SF-2281).

Drivers 120.10 & 120.11B8

in other games (Borderlands 2, LEGO LotR, FAR CRY3, NFS MW2, Torchlight 2, Minecraft) the problem does not notice.

do you think the video card's fault?

Use 12.8. I have the same problem. 12.10 and 12.11 causes flickering in the sky. I don't even have to watch the videos to know what you are talking about. I have a 7870 by the way.

Hey I also had the SAME EXACT problem with my 7870. Following Wanderer11's response will definitely fix it for you!

Drivers 12.8 are ideal. I had tried 12.6 first and I thought the problem was fixed but then it messed up all the shadowing in the interiors. 12.8 is the way to go.

Did you use driver sweeper to uninstall 12.10 before you installed 12.8?

Just uninstall 12.11 & install 12.8.

Driver Sweeper it is special software?

You should use driver sweeper to make sure everything is uninstalled. Simply clicking uninstall doesn't get everything. So follow this procedure: Download 12.8, uninstall 12.11 via control panel, reboot in safe mode, run driver sweeper to remove all the AMD stuff, reboot in normal, install 12.8.
