# 1 ATi 5970 dual core card
01-14-2010, 06:50 AM

I don't know if I am alone with this problem but I have software that monitors the GPU utilization percentage and while running STO I alt tabbed out to see how STO handles dual core graphics cards.

Usage on GPU core 1 was 98-100% and the graph showed similar numbers.

Usage on GPU core 2 was 0% and had been so for the entire time because the graph had not moved an inch.

If I close STO and start say, left 4 dead 2 or a benchmarking tool called furmark both GPU's start working @ 98-100% immidiately so there is nothing wrong with the card.

It simply seems like STO can and will only use one GPU core at the moment, yes I know we're in beta.

My setup:

AMD Phenom II 965BE @ 3,8 ghz
4gb 1333 ddr3 ram
ATi HD5970 2gb 900/1200 OC @ catalyst 9.12
Windows 7 64 bit ultimate.

Also, worth noting is that the game works perfectly even running on one core instead of two even at max settings @ 1920x1200.

There is not a crossfire profile for this game yet. No crossfire profile, no dual-GPU use.
