Hoping like hell someone can help me here...
I have a Radeon 5770. When I bought it, I could easily get 300-400 fps consistently in css. Then from a few months ago, css has been terrible - screen tearing, stuttering, just generally bad graphics. I was struggling to reach 200fps.
Now, I updated to the latest Catalyst drivers, and everything is borked. The game sort of lags every 2 seconds or so, to the point that I get shot and then people appear. Player models just disappear entirely at a distance, and glitch - like people running around crouched. Ping is stable, fps is stable (but still under 200). All other games seem fine.
Things I've tried:
Rolling back to previous driver
Switching between all the DX modes
Switching to vsync and triple buffering
All the graphics options in the game - AA, multicore rendering etc etc
It's not a power/heat/networking problem, ruled all those possibilites out. Anyone got any ideas, anything else I can try?
