    Hey

    Ive completed my new build and ive installed 2 x Sapphire 7950 oc version and im not sure if this a bug or a hardware/software problem, but somtimes gpu z and trixx (Sapphire tool) show different bus speed/width (32bit 20.0gbs vs 384bit 240.0gbs ) on one card while the other stays constant 384bit/240.0 gbs.

    Just to clarify i was using both gpu z and trixx at the sametime, maybe thats the problem:D???

    Now after a reboot both cards show the same speed when using only trixx???:confused:

    I have 1 Sapphire 7950 OC Edition. Trixxx is a good tool, but it's a little buggy. Sometimes the clock speeds restart by themselves. The drivers for the 7xxx series are buggy (as usual), since they are fairly new.

    So, I would say it's a bug :)

    ...Last thing, if you had any previous GPUs, did you use Drivesweeper to uninstall them in Windows/Safe Mode? Sometimes if you do not uninstall properly it screws up your readings. I had to uninstall my drivers 2 times because I kept getting clock speeds from my 5850 Crossfire

    Before i installed the cards i uninstalled the old drivers using ati uninstaller, im gonna try driversweeper in safe mode and a fresh install of drivers to see if it helps.

    Ive havent had any trouble running any games Battelfield 3, Crysis 2, Skyrim everything running at 60 fps with v sync on;)

    Thanks for your help:)
