View Full Version : Matrix 5870 Platinum artifacting on sprites in game

I also posted this in a similar thread, but I figure I could use my own thread as well.

When I try to flash the BIOS on the card, it says no valid adapter could be found. When i check the stock clocks in the CCC Overdrive test, it fails within seconds. It will not run 3Dmark Vantage but for about 4.3 seconds on the first test. The card stays below 46c (good ambient here, 15c), and at idle is around 30c.
this is what it is doing in every game I try to play. I have put the card in a different computer and it does the same thing. I have also tried an MSI 5770 Hawk, which works fine in this system, along with a GTX 260.

if a tech reads this, I have already submited an RMA request last week via your website, and I havent gotten an RMA number or a response yet.
