    No gaming on 6956 ??


    hi all......:)

    i have been playing around with 6956 for a few hours now, just setting it up, updated the drivers & i finally got round to gaming & i cant game AT ALL...?? they install ok & launch, but just disappear, no error....nothing.

    i tried my benchmarks & its the same deal, it just wont render anything complex...??

    this will be a real bummer if they never got round to building the necessary parts to game...

    so i just need confirmation, has anyone gamed on 6956 yet..?? or been able to run anything more complex than Aero...lol

    nope..... just uninstalled the forceware 180.84s & let W7 install its own (which turned out to be 178.14)

    still the same, the apps just disappear, the only one im able to get a message from is COH

    it just seems like they stopped building under the hood, & kept making the desktop prettier....lol, the default W7 games will run so i know there are drivers installed & the board & card are communicating, but she just wont game!!

    ironic really, come's equipped with DX11, for chess & backgammon
