Hello All,

I've been having major issues with my 5970 and from reading around the web i noticed almost everyone with a 5970 is experiancing the same issues. On battlefield 3 the stuttering is auful everything will be ok for 5-10 mins and then the game will freeze for 5 seconds then start again. This is non stop and continuous thoroughout the entire game.

After more time goes buy the freezing period increases to around 10-15 seconds rendering the game totally unplayable. I really need to fix this I have all the latest drivers , app profiles and beta drivers.

Can anyone help me?

i maybe have a fix for BF3 but FC3 i really do not know .. well BF3 has a big patch for PC its size is around 3.7 GB or something like that download it if you do not have it yet .. and if you already have it then when you start up the game just press " ` "  button ( you can see it right above the Tap button )  then you should see a console command line just press " G " and a line will show up to you write it down and make sure its exactly the same until you reach " FPS " word than press " space " than write " 60 " than press " enter " and you should see this line "  result = 60 " shows up to you than here you go it should runs just fine .. and btw i was have the same problem with my BF3 on 5770 card but this fix make it gone forever .. i hope this will help

@ Apohamed Unfortuantely the problem still persists even with the 60 frame cap.

I have windows 7 64bit , i7 920 overclocked to 3.2ghz, hd 5970 , 850 w psu , 6 gig ram and yes I have installed all the latest drivers and the beta's , same result.

I have the same graphic card, and i have also stuterring with FarCry3.

The weird thing is that the stuterring appears even if the fps is above to 60, there is a stutter every couple of second !

I read a lot of post for the stuterring (often present in games with DUALGPU card) and the only way i found is to limit the framerate at my screen refresh rate 60. For this i use MsiAfterburner. Since that, the stuterring problem is heavily reduces. Sometimes there is some slowing once fps is under 60fps. I use the Vsync = 1 in game

This game is very cpu intensive, with the crap of catalyst driver with his CAP, the usage of each GPU do not exceed 40-45%.

I have a Core i7 930 at 4Ghz. edit: and W8x64

AMD catalyst driver are so weak... no new driver since october 2012 and no CAP update since the 3 december..

that may be the problem,the drivers,with the 5970 being an older card,try it with older drivers.With my 6950 crossfire,BF3 plays really well with the 12.1's
