    Radeon 6870 Catalyst 15.11 low GPU load, load spikes

    daggerfall

      Win 8.1 64 updates (clean install, no catalyst reinstallation)
      CPU: Phenom X1055T
      Sapphire Radeon 6870
      MB: ASUS M5A99X EVO rev1
      Memory: Unganged Dual 8Gb 1600 corsair xms 1.5v
      Skyrim details: Ultra, expect shadows and AA/AF 4/4
      Battlefield 3 details: High
      GPU usage spikes or always kept on low in Skyrim, battlefield 3 starts lag after 10-15 minutes of playing, and when GPU loading keeps on low. I attached gpu-z log where I start skyrim and entering Whiterun.

      I experience this bug before with battlefield 3 on older catalyst(~2 years ago, so It must be catalyst 13.xx), so... this happens again. I did not remember which driver fixes that problem, but, battlefield 3 starts run very smoothly after I installed new driver (13.12/14.1 I didn't know), maybe someone will help to find that version?

      I face with such situation in every year with diffirent cards, critical bugs in every catalyst release (I must always choose and test drivers for my tasks and for card), I have six AMD cards from 6670 to 7950 and, I really tired of that. Pls fix that already.
