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.
