    I get green flashes. I hope it fixed that. Otherwise my 5870 runs Very high on everything with some AA (plus shader AA) turned on at around 45-60FPS. Reply

    With 11.09 that is. haven't trying 11.10 yet. Reply

    Is that in a specific game or in all titles? If the latter, it sounds like the card is overheating or having some other problem. You might try underclocking the GPU/RAM to see if that addresses the problem. Reply

    Just BF3, don't know why I didn't state that. But yea just one game everything else is flawless (mostly). Reply

    You're apparently talking about BF3. I have a GTX 460 and I get occasional colorful flashes (they alter between white, orange and green), so it's likely it's a bug in the game itself instead of AMD drivers. Reply

    I think he means in general. Poor guy. Reply

    I think I'm getting the same occasional flash on BF3 as these guys.

    For the record: Win7 HD4850/E6600@3ghz/P965/4GB running at 1600x1200, Medium everything, AA off, SSAO on...manages 35-45fps during most multiplayer, dropping to 25-35fps when it gets intense. It looks pretty damn good, even at those settings, but I would definitely appreciate a higher frame rate, and who wouldn't want all the eye candy on?

    I'm going to wait until more of my friends have upgraded their systems and bought BF3 before I do any more hardware upgrading myself, since we have mostly still been playing BF2. I sure got alot of life out of that old game, which is why I'm still using Catalyst 11.3 right now. I get major flickering ground textures with any newer Catalyst, and so do many others. I think even newer Nvidia drivers have the same problem, so it's probably not likely, but here's hoping they threw in a fix for that old BF2 problem along with all the BF3 fixes here in 11.10... I'm going to try it now, and report back.

    The new 11.10's still have the BF2 glitch, where you see black holes flickering on the ground when looking into the distance (outdoors).

    Also, just by monitoring the in-game FPS readout, I didn't notice any speed increase in BF3 with my setup, coming from the 11.3's, so I'll be reverting back again. (not that I expected to notice an increase)

    Well son when you don´t upgrade your hardware now and then new drivers will indeed only optimize stuff your dusty rig doesn´r understand...

    Keep preaching the 11.3 nonsense though...AMD is bad and you are the more underlayed engineer that is on top of the scene..

    I've had green flashes occur because of a cheap DVI cable. Worth checking out - it's an easy fix. Reply

    Anyone know if this will fix the Crossfire problems in BF3? Reply
  • kimsoon80 - Tuesday, November 01, 2011 - link

    You will need to download the latest Catalyst Application Profile (CAP 4.0) & install it in order to get both cards running properly under Crossfire. Before installing CAP4.0, my Crossfire setup only utilizes 1 GPU & the other was left idle most of the time. Average frame rates was like 30-40fps. Now I am getting an average of 50-60fps :) Reply

    No more flashes for me last night in BF3 and performance seems a little better. Really good playability with everything on ultra except AA. Factory OC 6870 1 GB here and a Phenom II X2 3.3 Ghz / 4 GB RAM. On large levels I couldn't play with textures to Ultra (too much disk activity), but yesterday I bought a 60 GB Corsair Force 3 SSD and clean install Windows and now it's much, much better.

    The only problem I have is that sometimes, after playing through several levels the machine become sluggish and it's not a temperature / throttling issue...

    ....and still no CrossfireX support for Rage. Maybe in the first 11.10 caps? (they only have 11.9 CAP 4 right now) Reply
