The first screen shot has a long shadow line through the building and the second one shows a white checkerboard pattern on the left of the screen. These only flash on the screen for a frame or two and I had to use FRAPS to record a video and then search through them to get a screen cap. They are totally random and I may not see one for 15-20 minutes and then I’ll see lots. I’m now using the AMD 12.9 beta driver and still seeing the same thing.



 

Just an update. I tried the MSI driver and it seems to be a little more buggy. I posted a video this time. I’ve tried all the AMD drivers I can find including the original 7970 RC driver and the most recent beta drivers like 12.10 and 12.11 and the problem still persists.

I have another Windows 7 system with an AMD 5970 card and it does not have the image problem but it crashes in Windows 7 after about 20-30 minutes. If I boot into XP on this 5970 system it will not crash. I don’t have a Windows XP install on the 7970 system to test with.

I posted a video this time, take a look:

Anyone? Help?

I have tried all the Divers that I can find including the last one from AMD, 12.11 Beta 11 driver. Whatever driver I try they seem to change the behavior of the artifacts but they always appear. I don't thinks it's a hardware issue either (in that my 7970 are different than others) but I seem to be the only one as I can't find anyone in any forum that is talking about the 7970 and issues with Age Of Empires Online. I've created threads on the Microsoft site ageofempiresonline.com and on the Steam but no one can confirm they have a 7970 or the issue. I have contacted AMD and Microsoft but they did not have any info on the issue. I have the latest BIOS for my ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard. They just released one last Thursday, version 3305 but it did not help.

It would be nice just to confirm that other 7970 cards have the same issue.
