SFIV Directx 11 card problems

Hey all,

Upgraded PC the other day and am having trouble running SFIV. I pretty much have to run it on low settings to get 60fps.

My PC specs are:

Q8400 2.66Ghz Quad Core
4Gb Ram
Graphics Chipset ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series
Running Windows 7 64bit

Was maybe thinking it was a Directx 11 problem but I don’t really know much about that.

Any ideas???

Are your drivers installed and the device recognized by windows 7? With many graphics cards, windows 7 will install the generic driver initially and you have to force it to use the specific drivers from ati/nvidia/whathaveyou.

If all of this is greek to you, search for device manager, see if under display adapter it says “VGA adapter” or your specific card, if the first, right click, update driver, then manually select your driver from its location on the disk that came with it or wherever you unpacked the installer from ATI.

Did you fully uninstall the drivers from the previous graphics card? Also, did you download the drivers from ATI’s website?

Yeh updated last night… Just played it in 720 and got 59.8 with everything turned up so I will just play on that. Also I don’t get an option higher than aa x8 (my friend has aa x 16QC for and older card). Thinking that they need a patch…

your card is fine and you dont need a patch.what drivers are u using?

Driver Packaging Version 8.671-091104a-091527C-ATI
Catalyst? Version 09.11
Provider ATI Technologies Inc.
2D Driver Version
2D Driver File Path /REGISTRY/MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/CLASS/{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}/0000
Direct3D Version
OpenGL Version
Catalyst? Control Center Version 2009.1104.959.17837

That help

What card is your friend using? Different cards have different levels of AA and different methods of employing them. That 16x is probably not a big of a deal.

You could go for a program like drivercleaner to make sure your old drivers are cleared out. That’s typically what causes this kind of problem (like other people have already said). Sometimes uninstalling isn’t quite enough.

If it doesn’t fix, maybe you’ll just need to wait for ati’s next driver update.
