Crysis artifacts with GTX280
 
The character keeps artifacting, specifically the weapon and arms when cloaking/exiting cloak, looks like a memory error but memory isnít overclocked and other games seem fine.

This is with 177.39, anyone else noticing anything odd or has my memory decided to give after less then two days?

No, it's not overheating anymore, that was the problem yesterday but it's worked fine since with no artifacts or crazy temps, now it's artifacting and all i've done since is install 177.39 and the physx driver.

Can we see a picture? Also could you downclock and see if it happens?

I dont wanna jump to conclusions but if underclocking didnt help then it sounds a faulty card ..
how about reverting back to the older driver ?

Just did just that, first removed physx driver which made no difference then rolled back to to 177.35 and the artifacts are gone. So luckily it looks like a driver issue, or dodgy driver install maybe as nobody else has reported problems.

lets see how long unitil the next issue pop up. :D

Good to hear! .. try a driver cleaner just in case.

confirmed: these are faulty cards, provided you have the latest game patch, driver, bios version etc. installed.

RMA it like i did, get a new card and be happy.

man was i pissed when i first had this problem. wtf rite, i bought this high end card to play me some crysis and then it crashes on me!! other games seem to run okay, but then again i couldve bought a 4870 for those. what use is todays highest end card if you cant even play crysis?

Nope, it's a driver issue. But of course a faulty card would result in something simalar. :p

well yeah it could always be driver related of course.

but i used to same driver on my new card and its not showing any symptoms so far!

there are just way too many factors and variables to give a clear definite answer to this issue.

Does it happen in any other game Shocky? I just got my card. I first used the 177.39 drivers and there was bad artifacting. It even froze on the desktop. I moved to the 177.41 drivers and it improved but still there. I played Mass Effect for about 5 minutes and saw no artifacting. Now I don't know if maybe Crysis works the card harder than Mass Effect?
