    Specs in the sig. My cards are overclocked to 830/1130 and Ultra is unplayable! I'm getting 15-22 fps! Even on high settings, I'm getting 30-50 fps.

    Is this game really that demanding?!! Are you all having a similar experience? This would certainly be the first game I couldn't play at Ultra around 50-60 fps... Even BF3 is 60+.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I'll give Radeon Pro a try when I feel like taking a break. I'm okay playing at high settings for now :)

    so i would emagine that you are only using one GPU? if one GPU handles the game at high settings, gotta say... thats quite impressive.
    6990s are indeed very powerful gpus.

    yeah I am sure once you use both cards you should be getting 60~ FPS on both solutions.

    That's why I use Radeon Pro. I know with that all my games will always use XF even if there is no CAP out for it.

    Hell with FFXIV without Radeon Pro I get Vertical sync issues and it never uses my second card and that's a year old game! Although with Radeon pro FPS doubles and no VS issues.

    Is this skyrim a RPG game? Like the Assassin's Creed series?
