x1900 stutters
I know what your gunna say. ati sux go nvidia lol. I decided to try ati again, havnt used them in a while.

Ok i have an x1900xt and an xtx in crossfire.

fx60, 4 gigs mem on a dfi crx3200-dr board.

Stutters horribly in all games i play.

ion 3dmark06, i am scoring a 9300, but it still stutters. on The ship demo, it is artifacting like a sob, but still runs. Tried oblivion, it stutters about each second.

System is watercooled. graphics card temp is running at 36*C.

I hate the control panel, i cant see the temps of both cards, all i get is 1.

Does anybody else who is going ati have this problem?

please dont make this an ati flame thread.

On the first test, the framerates start out at 70fps which is 10fps higher than my 2 7900gtx's.

3dmark05 actually ran great. So it seems that stuff that uses sm3.0 is what stutters, it seems

*deep breath* cause ati drivers suck *sigh*

Have you ever had an ATI card and used their drivers. IF not, then you cant say **** about them. I'm sick of hearin ppl say they suck, they dont, they may not be as good as nvidias, but they dont suck. If you cant get help here, try the DFI street forums or XS.

look dude.. i didnt mean to offend anyone, i was trying to make it a little more of a joke then an insult. becuase the guy clearly qouted that he didnt want anyone to flame about ati. Its kinda hard to truly express sarcasim on the web. :( mayb some day forums will use speech.

I had an ATI, and i had no MAJOR prob with them
I did have some minor difficulties when upgrading to the newest drivers.

I am sorry and if there is anyway i could make up for wat i said, i would. I will most likely edit my post if i get more responses like that

:( *tear*

BTW: admin please dont close this post, its still operational

Sry, its just there's been so many ppl around here flamin on ATI and their drivers, and i'm sure half of them havent even had an ATI before. Sry i didnt get the sarcasm, it is hard on the internet.

It really depends on ati's drivers. I would say they suck. For starters I have a 9600xt and the drivers they currently had made all my games run for 5 minutes or less and I had to revert to older ones. I ended up using omega's which make ati's a little better. Lastly the omega drivers give better framerates than ati's and ati=big corp. vs omegadrivers=small website. Weird! Just my 2 cents.

Note: I had a radeon 9200, 9600xt, and a x800gto. I have to say the x800gto is decent with the 16 pipes unlocked and at 425/1050.

ATI drivers DO suck. I would recommend 3rd party drivers....

Take out 2GB of memory,

second, Update to latest drivers and try the Omega ones..
