MSI GX660 [BIOS MSI MS-16F1] no switchable gfx-card support, Dell 7970m 2GB [VBIOS (113-C42904A1-117)], Intel i7 840qm, Windows 7 x64 HP.

Some DX9 games, even without the Enduro/Intel switchable graphics HW support, still under-utilize GPU (= GPU-z reports max GPU Load ~30-40%) and result in jerky 20-25fps. Current driver Catalyst 13.12WHQL:

- Drakensang 1 and 2

- Demonicon

(I'll add more...)

All these issues have been repeadetly reported by many users in many forums. It's not a Windows/bad installation issue (moreover the other games run fine) and looks like poor support from AMD to 7970m/drivers/DirectX.


MSI GX660, AMD HD7970M 2GB DDR5 900/1500, Windows 7 x64
