    I just installed the newest 14.1 drivers. My MSI 7870 has severe artifacts while under load (mining). Updating BF4 now to see if the same issue occurs in gaming.

    I was also getting artifacts on the MSI card when I installed the drivers from the CD that came with the card. But once I updated to 13.11 the artifacts went away.

    Should I be concerned and RMA the card or should I just roll back to the last good driver configuration and call it a day?

    Edit update: MSI 7870 is not artifacting in BF4, and that's with the card OCed to 1100/1300. While mining, it is running at 975/1250 and causing artifacts.

    I'm pretty sure I saw on other forums that 14.1 is no good for mining.

    In this case 14.1 is good for gaming but no good for mining. I have tried 13.12, 13.9 and am now installing 13.4 and I am still getting artifacts while mining. I also checked my other 7870 and I am having the same issues on that card as well!

    I had the same problem with 14.1 and mining on both a 290x and 7950. I ended up resetting them to defaults and not overclocking. Oddly, temps went down and hashes went up. My 7950 was sitting at 550k @ 70C, but now is right around 600k @ 62C. I'm still probably going to go your route and downgrade drivers though.

    I've also seen my hashes maintain speed or even go down in speed when I overclock. Sometimes it goes up with the right ratio of memory OC to core OC
