It could be an issue with Windows 10 and your GPU. The HD 5970 has reached legacy status so there will not be any driver updates to fix existing issues. I would recommend rolling back your OS.
I had the same issue on Windows 8.1 as well! And i just fresh installed Windows 10, so why you tell me i should rolle back?
A friend of me got the same graphics card and the same issue on windows 8.1!
And why is there no more support? I mean the crossfire option is now buggy for more than 1 year and not only for the 5970.
When this is your way to help, then i will never buy AMD products again. I where a big fan and i NEVER bought intel and nvidia.
Back in the old days i already had some problems with your drivers, but i always could fix it. I bought many processor and gpu's
from AMD and i always told friends that AMD is much better because of price/perfomance and that the AMD guys are not greedy.
Dafuq, i bought AMD server processor as well, do you know how much they cost?
So because of the repeatly bad drivers and support ill never buy or recommand AMD stuff again, sorry guys. You fu.. it up!
Its not the first time i bought a 600€ gpu that is not running probably. My friends always told me that they never had problems
When i where the CEO of your company of would fire all your driver programmer for releasing drivers that are not working!
Okay. The reason for suggesting trying your previous OS was that the HD 5970 lacks the necessary hardware support for DX12 and Windows 10. In addition, we are focusing our engineering resources on supporting customers using our latest GPUs as the HD5970 is now 7 years old. More information on that decision can be found here.
Have you tried moving the 5970 to a different PCI-E slot, and then trying a clean installation of our last Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta driver?
I am using 2x 7990's and a R9 295x2 but i have been unable to reproduce the issue you have described on Windows 10.
Ill try the 15.11.1 driver later.
But im wondering because i have this issue on Windows 7, Windows 8 & Windows 10.
And i already tried the card on a friends pc with windows 8.1 and it only worked with 13.12 as well.
So 13.12 is the only driver that worked on my AMD system and on the intel System of a friend. Why only this one?
I don't know, unfortunately i do not have that hardware to test.
I'v got a new Motherboard now.
I also installed Windows 7 and AMD-Catalyst-15.7.1-With-DOTNet45-Win7-64bit
But there is still no crossfire.
Men this card can still run all new games with dual gpu, how to use it with new driver?
Is there no fix or workaround?
Is there no way to force the memory of crimson to show crossfire?
Please help, i want to keep using this card. But i cant even put it through virtualization... only 1 gpu
- Update to Dual-GPU 5970 -
I have tried 2 CPUs, 3 Mainboards & 6 operating systems now.
- AMD Phenom II 965
- Intel I3-6100
- AsRock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming.-ITX/ac
- AsRock 980DE3/U3S3
- Asus M5A 78L-M USB3
Ubuntu 14 <- WORKS
Ubuntu 16 <- DOESNT WORK
Windows 7 <- WORKS UNTIL 13.12
Windows 8 <- WORKS UNTIL 13.12
Windows 8.1 <- WORKS UNTIL 13.12
Windows 10 <- WORKS UNTIL 13.12
14.4 came out ~ April 2014
HD 5970 came out ~ April 2009
The support time for the cards is 5 years? For me it seems like some kind of fraud/cheating here.
You guys ruined it and you didnt cared about your customers happiness all the time. So after many
months of frustration about dual gpus not working, i have decided to lets everyone here know what i
think about this situation.
I so i wont buy the AMD 480X or 580X CF for my lab rig, ill simply go for Nvidia GTX 1080 SLI. Just
two weeks ago i bought i3-6100 instead of your Ryzen and i will never ever buy AMD stuff again.
Thanks AMD, i never bought Intel or Nvidia before because i loved your stuff in the old days.But you people
made me so mad. So i have to change over...
