7950 boost edition being bottlenecked? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: April 9, 2013 8:40 PM in Graphics & Displays Share caydn12 April 9, 2013 4:44:50 PM I had my 7950 sapphire boost eidition clocked to 1025/1575 I started up far cry 3 to see what it could do. On "very high" preset with 0 AA, it was lagging.. Bad.. My cpu is a Q6600 core 2 quad. It is at stock 2.4 ghz. I cant overclock it because it is in a dell computer. My new build is comin thursday so then i can put my 7950 in my new computer, but i wanted to test it out. Also with my new cpu (fx-6300) will i experience bottlenecking? Im going to see if i can OC it to 4.2ghz More about : 7950 boost edition bottlenecked Brett928S2 a b U Graphics card April 9, 2013 4:47:03 PM Hi Run it standard in your new build for a few days BEFORE overclocking anything, so you will have a benchmark...

Your current cpu will OC past 3.2GHz - to bad Dell doesn't let you. -Bruce Related resources SAPPHIRE HD 7870 OC GHZ Edition or SAPPHIRE HD 7950 3GB with Boost - Forum gtx 760 vs hd 7950 boost edition - Forum AMD Radeon HD 7950 boost edition low fps - Forum MSI GTX760 HAWK or MSI 7950 Boost Edition - Forum GTX570 > 7950 Boost Edition - Is this a worthwhile upgrade? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
