Default Re: Going green

Yeah I just recently made the switch to a GTX295 from a 4870X2.

The main reason for my switch was that CAT AI needed to be switched on in order to get multi GPU to turn on. This caused a bunch of graphics anomalies in games like Quake wars.

In the past when using ATI cards CAT AI was for allowing optimization or I was under the impression it was, and for the longest time I ran this card with CAT AI off.

As soon as I found out that it needed to be turned on in order to get multi GPU to work I fired up Quake Wars, and though I did get better performance I was getting all kind of anomalies the mining laser for example in Qwars would get all gold in color and various other issues. I also had all kind of issues with new driver installs needing multiple reboots.
I loved the card but in the end I didn’t want to wait for drivers to resolve things or wait for a new release to see if it would resolve my issues. Shame really so…….with that said I have had zero issues with anything I throw down the GTX295’s way.
