So here it is: I am running a Sapphire HD6850 which runs many many games just fine at max settings and 60 fps. I can also run Rust at 60 fps on the max settings, but after about 20-30 minutes both of my monitors will go black: here’s the kicker, I can hear my skype and the rest of my computer functions just fine which leads one to think that my video card drivers go to shit.
Most people would say it’s overheating at this point–but it’s not. My temps on my card at this point are around ~65 deg C. I ran FurMark many times (a benchmark test that loads your GPU) and the card gets to 75 deg C just fine.
I have played other games as well with these same drivers and they run just fine (BF3, Deadspace, GTA etc).
What’s the dealio? What can I do to fix this?
I have tried grass.on = FALSE just in case. Doesn’t seem to help at all.
I’d really like to play this game, but at this point I just want my money back…I can’t play for 10-15 minutes before it shits out on me and I have to restart.
This has to be a driver or card specific issue for Rust…I just don’t know what to do.
