Ok I'm seeing Flashing Objects in Crysis when Running in DX10. DX9 works fine though.

Under CCC 9.9

i know he deleted his post so its a little odd for me to reply to it...

that screen that claims its on HDMI in my screenshot is actually using a DVI cable. the ATI drivers have bugs about detecting screens as the wrong type for no real reason.

(i have one DVI and one HDMI connected atm, and it will detect them wrong, or detect both as HDMI for no reason)

Once again ATI hase done it again :) just installed 9.9 and run Crysis Benchmark @ 1920x1080 on Very high settings, FPS never dropped below 25 maxed at around 55 and scored an avarage of
35 FPS!!!!! thats a record for my comp and all done on my Stock settings (cpu+gpu)

Very impressed :toast:
Cant say the same for Core 2 duo, lost 3 fps there, 9,7 was the best for Crysis so far, but, i'm not playing this game anymore, just for testing.

Anyone noticed any glitches in ovedrive menu ? mine is blinking everytime, the entire CP when using overdrive tab blinks, I think is when temp readings are update, never saw that before.

Section 8 still not supporting CF or AA.

Redfaction runs flawless, 1680x1050 8xAA, Softshadows, AO and all the rest at maximum, the big deal is my C2D can handle to much phisics :( its time for a i7 upgrade :rockout:

Res 4 its now working too, CF enable, no shadows problems.

I confirm.
1 of my radeons runs @160/250 right now while the other runs 625/993(3d core clocks of both are 800+)
So Powerplay works with 9.9
my bad, i just noticed mine always running @625/1000 when running JDownloader maximized, when minimized in tray, powerplay running normally...

Is it just me or did ATI really roll back the Catalyst Version on their download page? :wtf:

And I'm actually running CAT 9.9... Do I have to expect my laptop to explode any time soon now?
Yup, thats strange, wonder why they did that?

I already downloaded 9.9 on some of my PCs and now all the sudden it is back to 9.8. Well, I guess I'll check the AMD forums and see what I dig up. I have never seen this before. Damn!! :mad:

Only thing I found is they removed it due to bad performance from some and a bad review at tweaktown.

WTF? Wierd...

Anyhow, I will bench these with Resident Evil 5 with a Phenom II 920 and Triple 1 gig Radeon 4850s and see what happens in DirectX 10.:banghead:

Works for me, haven't tried Sims3 for the corruption issue on trees.

All Seems Well With RE5

I got around 100 FPS in MAX Detail at 1920 *1200 with triple crossfire Radeon 4850 1 gig cards and a Phenom II 920 with 8 gigs of DDR2 800 RAM on a MSI K9A2 Platinum Motherboard in the variable test. The fixed results were in the 60s. The texture flickering is gone. I guess I can buy the game now. :)

Oh... MY... GOD! Guys, this is like a nightmare, I think I haven't really realized it yet, but yeah, this is kind of fucked up...

Let me quote myself:
And I'm actually running CAT 9.9... Do I have to expect my laptop to explode any time soon now?
Obviously, this was meant as some kind of joke... But yesterday I got my first blue-screen thanks to an ati-related .dll... So yeah, figuers I should try and update my 9.9... So I did, redownload the 9.9 that was back on the AMD Homepage. Nothing seemed wrong, so I used my PC as usual.
The disaster happened while I was trying to run pcsx with the ZeroGS Plug-in... Strange lines all over windows and the obvious crash. Rebooting, I didn't think anything of it... Might have just been the faulty Plug-in, so I tried GSdx plug-in. after 2 secs (not overclocked 36°C GPU-Temp), another crash, this time I had lines all over the Blue-Screen aswell :wtf:

Ok, so after reboot no more picture... After next reboot this greeted me (obviously not booting anymore):

So yeah, I really don't think this is the work of the Cat 9.9, but it sure is what you would call irony, fate or whatever :laugh:

So what I suppose is that the vram "blew up", or, if I'm lucky, it's just the solder of latter chips that has broken and reflowing (think 360 RROD) should fix it... I'll be trying that tomorrow.

Now give me some condolences :roll:
