Dear AMD Support,
I also filed this in the Catalyst feedback as we need a hotfix.
Crossfire is broken causing graphical issues and a performance
glitch or crash. The game isn't playable in xfire currentl due to these
two issues seen. I have included a link from the Funcom
forum user who also is seeing this in Crossfire mode as evidence.
We need hotfix ASAP.
Here are the detail you required in your STICKY and here are the answrers.
Please push the priority up on this one since it makes the game not playable.
Asus Radeon 6870 in Crossfire X2
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
- 12.8 and 12.7
- Windows 7 64bit
Game; The secret world by Funcomm
Graphic settings on DX11 and set to HIGH in game setting (it does at any setting though)
Catalyst control center should have xfire enabled.
The issue is the text in the chat windows or game. You get graphical and text corruptions in these windows with flickering also observed. The game isn't playable at all in xfire config due to the corruption. Switching to single card fixes the issue but then you have to lower the graphic setting significantly to play.
So there is a work around but to me this a game breaker.
In addition there is some strange performance glitch that occurs every 15-30
seconds where the frames per second counter hits 0 then 3-4 seconds later
the screen is redrawn and you see it briefly at 2fps when the screen is frozen
and comes back. This isnt a graphical stutter this is a freeze of the screen
and wait a few seconds then it is redrawn. Sucks especially if this happens in combat!! You can hear the audio so its like the graphic driver just froze and reset.
Messing around with performance parameters doesn't stop this from occurring either. Typically I can run it high at an average of 40-45 fps never dipping below 35 in the highest of action. But when this glitch happens its a like a crash and
a quick recovery.
I checked the Windows log files. I didn't see any driver crashes or GPU recoveries
in the event viewer whcih is what I normally do. So as of now I don't know what else to give you but its a graphical issue of some kind.
