    SOLVED-BF3 fps drop when zooming in 12x scope on huge 64 players maps

    I had large fps drops (from 100 to 45-50) when zooming in with a 12x sniper scope on 64 player maps over large distances. I have found the solution to this zooming in problem. It regards tesselation. I unchecked the option "amd optimized" in CCC and reduced the tesselation manually to x8 and...

    Thanks guys, but yesterday I have found the solution to this zooming in problem. It regards tesselation. I unchecked the option "amd optimized" in CCC and reduced the tesselation manually to x8 and boom baby!!!! No more problems...i get more fps when zooming in with the 12x scope(even on Caspian...

    BF3-system ram related

    I was asking if 2x4gb could help my performance; and btw 11.9 cap 4 messed with my 2nd gpu's usage really bad...never did go above 40%; when i uninstalled it usage went to 99% on both cards. My problem is not with usual fps, just when zooming in with a sniper. Thank you for your response but it...

    BF3-system ram related

    Would upgrading to 2x4gb ram(instead of the existent 2x2gb-see specs) help my BF3 performance? I get a strange fps drop when zooming in with the sniper on caspian border. I use 11.10 prev. 3 with no caps (both gpu's stay at 99% so no bottleneck or anything). Resolution is 1680x1050, settings all...

    BF3 problem

    I get intro freeze with crossfire enabled, all good using one card; but i want the extra fps...i installed all that is needed for the game and i use 11.10 preview 3 + 11.9 cap 3 (as recommended by amd for his game). Any ideas?

    i5 750@4Ghz=crossfire 6950 bottleneck?

    Cpu usage during the game is between 70-85-90% max; GPU usage does not reach 100% on both cards, more like 90% and 40%. I know BC2 is cpu intensive but wtf it's a good quad with a 50% OC...both cards however are at 3D clocks so no problem there, temps are around 65C so no thermal throttling. The...

    i5 750@4Ghz=crossfire 6950 bottleneck?

    Could an i5 @4 Ghz bottleneck 2x6950 2gb? Or what could be the cause of Battlefield BC2 negative scaling? The temps of the gpu's are around 65 C, so i see no temperature bottleneck. Should i overclock the CPU more? Show your creativity here my friends, I'm really stuck :( p.s. I game at...

    6950 Crossfire issue

    Cadaveca you're the man :D I'm looking forward to your feedback, thanks dude :) @Brandonwh64 It's a little over my budget right now, maybe in 4-5 months if i get a good price for my cpu and mobo.

    6950 Crossfire issue

    Final question: would changing the monitor with another one with a 1920x1080 resolution take the weight off the CPU a little bit and help with the scaling? I read that increasing the resolution moves the importance towards the GPU(s).

    6950 Crossfire issue

    Well it's quad not a dual core :) And it's overclocked at 4,0 Ghz from 2,66. And everything is perfectly fine in several games, scaling there is great. Just in this game it sucks bad :( Any more ideas?

    6950 Crossfire issue

    I recently got a second 6950 2 gb added to my system and started testing games. They scale very good in games like Starcraft 2, Warhammer Space Marine, Crysis 2, Metro 2033 or AVP. The problem is with Bad Company 2, where my frame rate goes from 40 to 80 to 110 and then back and so on. Another...

    Sapphire HD 6950 2gb overclock

    Ok guys new problem :( today started playing some RAGE and saw that fps was dropping...and by accident i watched the gpuz readings...the card does not go higher than 70% usage in any game i play; rage, sc2... if i try to run a msi kombustor or heaven 2.5 benchmark it goes to 100% constant...

    Sapphire HD 6950 2gb overclock

    Hey guys, just overclocked my card to 900/1375 with a voltage of 1.14v, no changes done to the memory voltage (ambient is around 25c). The max temp goes to 76c, and i think it's a little bit high (stock cooling, with the fan at 50%). I know a dude who OC'd to 950/1400 with 1.175 and got 65c max...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Non-reference 2 GB model, but possibly with no dual-bios switch; i guess it could work, but i wouldn't flash a card with no dual bios frankly :) Do you have the card or just plan on buying it?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    This depends also on the driver version and related issues; glad to be of any assistance :) I got mine on May 2nd, and before doing anything to it I read all the 103 pages of this thread, call me a geek blah blah :D Best of luck with your overclocking endeavors mate.

    Sapphire TriXX Beta Up.....

    Same fan problem for me with version 4.0.1. I have to put it on auto and the switch back to the custom option for it to work again. Is there a way to resolve this?

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    When I flashed my first card, I didn't notice such a big improvement...maybe around 5% with those settings; 6950 in Crossfire doesn't need modding, except if you play on huge resolutions or Eyefinity. Most of the people here did not report bad things happening from unlocking just the shaders...

    6950 broken fan HELP!

    I sent the card back to the retailer I got it from, not to Sapphire directly. They did not sent me a notice until now, and I don't think they will; I'm still curious though :)
