    Problems running VANTAGE with 3870X2 CROSSFIREX

    I had try to run Vantage last night. But I got the problems with 3870X2 CROSSFIREX. When I start to run the test, the GPU test can't run as well. In TEST 1, there have the blank screen, but the test still carry on. 80% of the test in white screen., just the few second see the scene only from the begining.

    And TEST 2, it can't run as well too. The scene have problems too, can't show all the details.

    CPU TEST don't have any problems.

    Is there any bros have same problems too? And it fixed yet? I really don't know whats the problems is. But I try few time in difference situation as below:

    1/. Display card @ CROSSFIREX & overclocked, CPU overclocked(4ghz-4.5ghz) - above problems appears[no]

    2/. Both CPU & Display card @ DEFAULT SETTING - The problems still here.[no]

    3/. Run in single card @ DEFAULT, CPU overclocked - Can run Vantage as well. Nothing happen.

    4/. Run in single & both @ overclocked - All run as well[dots]

    So that, I think its the driver/Vantage don't support CROSSFIREX in 3DMARK Vantage?

    um, my config is:

    CPU: QX9650
    MAINBOARD: ASUS MAXIMUS EXTREME
    RAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR DDR3 1800
    DISPLAY CARD: SAPPHIRE 3870X2 BBA
    Windows Vista SP1
    3D MARK VANTAGE ADVANCE

    If you have same problem, please post here to share. And if you already solve it, hope you can share to me.

    Thanks[surrender]

    I was having trouble with every driver version I installed. Finally worked with the ati 3dmark vantage hotfix package at thier website. I got P12,5xx with them. NOTE, uninstall previous drivers before installing these or they will not work right. I run 2 3870x2's

    I have installed the hotfix too, but I haven't uninstall the previous one. I will try for this. But anyway, thanks for your information

    Make sure Catalyst AI is turned off.

    do not turn AI off, doing that will disable one of the cards.

    this is what I have in CCC. I stress, you must do a clean install of that driver package.

    That would explain why my "CF" run was as pathetic as my single card run then. Funny it still indicates that CF is enabled.

    Problems solved with clean install[thumbup] But the score for ATI seems not like 3D MARK 06, far away from NVIDIA. Wait for the next driver[rofl]

    Catalyst AI will not disable one of your cards if it is turned off, so don't say that. It simply is an optomisation that gives poorer picture quality/graphics to get better fps, it does nothing more or less than that so turning it off does NOT turn off crossfire.
