Got a new Sapphire X1900XT installed on my system and in certain games like GTR2 demo and rfactor I get missing/flashing/sheering textures like this:

Me on my own:

I had noticed the same with my X1800XT previously. Just uninstalled CCC/WDM drivers, run drivercleaner Pro and then reinstalled 6.9s. No change.

My system:
AMD X2 4800+ (stock)
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe (fan replaced with heatsink)
Crucial Ballistix PC4000 2x512mb (auto mem settings)
2xraptors in raid 0

This problem only seems to happen when there is other cars/planes etc to draw, if I do a time trial then the textures are fine.

Any ideas? Thanks

One interesting observation is, if I have these textures flickering about and I alt+tab to wondows then back into the game, everything is normal again and no problems for the rest of the gaming session.

Could it be a windows setting causing this? Also tested every single catalyst setting to see if it was a specific thing causing the textures to become corrupted but to no avail.

Any ideas anyone?

Hmm, hmm, I've had this before, its when the textures are loaded before the clocks change, this sometimes can corrupt textures, Alt-tabing out resets the textures...

Try using ATT at stock clocks, but without the clock change and see whats happens.

Thanks for the advice guys. Seems it had nothing to do with Ati at all! It was Asus AI *** (or whatever they call their auto overclocking utility) messing with my memory/fsb clocks. Hadn't realised it was on in the bios. anyway, turned it off and all is pristine again!
