    Awesome using it now and am happy for the time! But I think they can do a little better with the performance scaling, cant wait till then if thats the case!! :D

    i'm using these now with the 4GB skyrim launcher + the 'fix' for it to allow crossfire to work - still getting flickering textures.


    how are people using the 4GBfix/LAA and these drivers and still having working crossfire?

    I am using 11.11b, the 4GBfix and this .dll
    90 average fps across 2 GPUs on 30" (with 2 GPUs disabled due to AFR)
    No flickering so far, only with 11.11c

    That's also what I'm using (the LAA fix and the fix to fix the LAA fix for AMD, I call them :laugh:) and I have 5xxx CF too.

    To be honest, 11.11c doesn't really scale well. With 11.11a I had one GPU disabled and I used to get 40+ fps in Whiterun, whereas with 11.11c I only get 30 fps. But since that and Markarth are my only worst places I'm not going to bother tweaking anymore since in the rest of the game-world where the action really is I get between 45-60 (with vsync) and it's ok and playable for me.

    Where are you getting the flickering actually? Water? Terrain?

    I'm asking because I don't get any flickering. Very rarely, if I'm looking over a large distance, I might see some tip of a mountain flickering different shades of grey. But that's all.
    (I remember that used to happen way back in Oblivion in 2007 when I was using an 8600GTS...)

    I used to get really bad flickering with 11.11b. The smoke, water and fog used to strobe from their normal colour to white and back, and parts of the terrain would flicker to bright green and back. That was really awful.

    Are you using any mods? Perhaps something is conflicting?

    Or check your .ini tweaks if you have any? A good idea if you have ini tweaks would be to backup your current skyrimprefs.ini file and put it on the desktop, then delete the one from the game. Start the game and it would generate a new default skyrimprefs.ini

    clouds and water flicker for me, and lighting in doors from candles etc all flickers out simultaneously.


    i havent tweaked the game, and run just one mod - the beautiful skyrim one.
