    Try installing SP2 for Vista first .Also run just 1 card.Could be those crossfire bridges.I used 10.1 driver.

    I need you to rebench and make sure tessellation is on. If you turned it off at any point it may not be on by default. TBH your scores are a bit too high for a single 5850.

    ?
    Happy to do so, but I also posted the full-screen run, which was actually faster.
    And yes, it's on by default for DX11 ;)

    I'm going to continue to be skeptical. ;) and :rockout: all you want but nobody gets scores that high in Heaven with a single 5850 and those clocks.

    Like I said: full-screen actually yields a higher score than windowed mode does..

    I understand, but how are you the only one on the planet with a score that high?

    When I OCed my 5850 last month, I scored over 500 points higher :/
    But, none of my games made any use of the higher clocks, so I put it back to CCC's 775/1125.
    I'm starting to find the sweet point of my CPU/NB/RAM though, so maybe that has an impact.
    In GTA IV, I average 59fps every time..
    So I must be doing something right ;)

    Really?
    I'm sure I've seen higher scores :/
    I'm intrigued now!

    Dude... you have tessellation off when you run the benchmark. I can see it when looking at your screenshot, the rocks are flat.

    That's partially because you're looking at a screenshot in jpg's renowned quality..
    I don't really notice a great deal of difference in speed with tesselation on/off in Unigine, nor in DiRT2. What I do notice is a difference in the way flags/crowds/scenery looks with tesselation off.
    Heaven run with tesselation off:

    I can assure you that the way it looks on my monitor between tesselation on & off is rather substantial - rocks aren't flat & grass looks semi-believable, as opposed to flat everything..

    So I have to level with you man... even if it was a JPEG I could tell if you had tessellation on or off from that picture. Running the bench with Tessellation off and getting the same score is proof enough for me, and it should be proof enough for you that something is wrong.

    I'm starting to wonder as well now :wtf:
    Am checking it in wireframe to see if there's an issue somewhere..
    Will recheck in DiRT 2 as well, to see if there's anything suss happening there..

    Whilst I do notice a quality difference, there's not as much of a difference as I first thought (I just actually sat through the benchmark, which I normally don't do).

    I'll check back with whatever results I come up with.
    For now, remove my results until you & I both are sure my card is actually employing tesselation correctly..

    As of now though, I'm really a little annoyed if there's a problem.. :banghead:

    Cheers for picking up on that

    Yup, I just noticed that with an earlier screenshot I had of a month or so ago.
    I think I've got a faulty card..
    As it is, I cannot use OpenCL & DirectCompute - it's always one or the other, no matter what drivers/hotfix/SDK I use.
    I've already been in touch with XFX about it, but they reckon that any issues I have are driver related, not hardware..
    Strange thing is, that DiRT 2 most certainly employs tesselation. The only time I really notice a performance degradation is with the crowds being on Ultra setting - all others slow it down only marginally..
    There's got to be a bug in there somewhere :banghead:

    OK.. I'm now officially starting to get screen flickering every so often.
    Also, DXDIAG shows that I'm using DX11, but the DDI is 10.1
    Something's amiss.
    Whatever's gone astray between now and a month or so ago, it's stuffing up my card, or the drivers for it .. or both :eek:

    I was getting window flicker in the tropics demo but only in windowed mode.

    OK, firstly my apologies if this is going off-topic a little..
    Just did a complete removal of all ATI drivers (with Driver Sweeper)
    Installed the 9.12 hotfix drivers.. and no Tessellation :banghead:

    Checked Heaven benchmark, used free camera mode and switched back & forth with wire-frame on, to see if the tessellation on/off toggle made a difference. It didn't.
    DiRT 2 has the same issue with the crowds now, where the quality setting has no effect at all on the crowds, or indeed anything in the game that uses DX11 :wtf:

    As I've been playing GTA IV mainly (which doesn't use DX11 of course), I hadn't really noticed any changes.
    Until you pointed out the tessellation in my screenie, I had no idea.
    Thanks Binge. At least I know I have an issue that needs serious investigation.
    Guess I'll have to have another word or two with XFX support :shadedshu

    meh
    :cry:

    EDIT: the flicker I had is gone for now though (was doing that in everything, except GTA)

    i dont know why Binge but may try a list that goes down for things to set ie

    Anti Aliasing 4x
    Anisotriopic FIltering 8x
    etc etc because obviously ppl are seeing AA and AF and getting the frigging backwards for some reason :roll: :toast:
