Ok here’s the issue
I finally got 2 ATI x1950xtx up and running
Using cat 6.11 driver and ATITool for control
GPU setting 648/999
VGPU 1.425
MVDDC 2.083
MVDDQ 2.080
VDDCI 1.486

Problem= 12+ minutes per frame, my 1900xtx= 6.5

AMD opty dual core 1212

**Combined CPU Usage =56, but each core is really erratic and system idle 40%
or better setting priority to idle or low doesn't seem to matter


Motherboard ASUS M2R32-MVP
Power supply 700 watt
2 gigs of memory
ok one good thing these cards run cool <50

Any thoughts what I can do to better these frame times?

weird, i have one card (1950xtx) and i do 1 percent in 8 mins and a coulple of seconds. CCC says that my gpu and ram clocks are @ 2D speeds and my card runs at about 70 degrees.

I'm not sure if the problems you are having are related to crossfire mode or not, I admit i dont know anything about it but i remember something along the lines of the crossfire mode has to be dissabled and each card has to be run as a individual unit.

That would be my first guess as well. Well actually my first guess involved Marty and sabotage :D

It definitely sounds like your cards are not working at 100%. I assume you've tried the single GPU client and had better results?

Are you using the 6.11 drivers?

Hmm....well that's about right for a single. Did you try disabling CF with the dual client? Maybe try a fresh copy of the dual client?

I just have a single card, so no. As Bluefish mentioned I also remember reading that you had to disable CF to get this to work properly.

I had a look over at the Stanford forums and didn't see anyone else having the same problem. Maybe post over there for an answer.

Good luck!
