Windows 7: 5870 score 6.0 on WEI

21 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Not sure what it could be then. I would maybe take the advice of manowar2 and uninstall, reinstall the CCC/drivers, and try again. Maybe even make sure the card is seated properly in it's slot.

Okay, well i'm fine with it, the games run smoothly and i haven't encountered a single problem, and am able to max crysis and every high-end game I have so no big deal. When i run a benchmark everything shows up as it should, just this WEI score keeps bugging me like crazy.

Windows 7 64 Bit

I had the same issue described in this thread (WEI of 6 while running two HR 5870s in crossfire) and, similar to the position taken by Wiredsoul, had decided to just "live with it" given that performance was not impacted. Smile.. but it still nagged me... and I was finally able to fix it today - yay!

Tried the different approaches put forth (clearing out of datastore, turning up of fan, reinstalling drivers, etc.) to no avail; what worked was a slight variant of the solution put forth by mpcrsc562 requiring adjustments within the Catalyst Control Center (I am running version 10.02). The settings which worked (now getting a 7.8 rating), were located under the 3D menu within CCC, set up as (listed in order appear on ALL tab):

Smoothvision HD: Anti-Aliasing -> Use Application Settings
Smoothvision HD: Anisotropic Filtering -> Use Application Settings
Catalyst A.I. -> Advanced
Mipmap Detail Level -> Quality
Wait for Vertical Refresh -> Off, unless application specifies
Anti-Aliasing Mode -> Adaptive Multi-sample AA [I think this is the important one to change]
OpenGL Setting -> Unselected

Good luck!

Well, I got my scores to what i believe to be a far more reasonable scale, 7.8 to be exact and all i had to do was, basically reinstall the OS, and that did the trick for me, I understand it's not a very good fix for many people for obvious reasons.
