I just replaced my Gtx 560 ti for a radeon 7950 because I was getting horrible fps. Im getting the same fps with the upgrade. So my question is what else causes low fps?

Specs:
Amd Fx 8120 8 core
16gb Corsair Xms3 ram
Asrock 970 Extreme 3
Corsair Ax 1200 watt psu
Gigabyte Radeon 7950 3gb ram 384bit interface
Cpu cooling Corsair Hydro H100
Case Corsair Carbide 500R
Windows 7 64bit

Internet Speeds:
40 megs download
20 megs upload

Cpu temps run from 15c-25c while gaming.

Frame Rates:
World of Warcraft 20-30 Set on Fair.
Skyrim 20-30 Set on Medium.
The Secret World 10-20 Set on low.

No AA or AF

These frame rates normal?

you do realize this is below freezing? not to mention totally inaccurate.

"Cpu temps run from 15f-25f while gaming."


make sure the ram is in the proper slots for dual channel mode and set at the right timings. if it is xmp" memory check to BIOS and see if it can be enabled. ( xmp profiles )

did you uninstall the old card first? ( the software )

Seems kind of low. Good airflow in the case? How about gpu temps? Anything running in the background while gaming? Hard drive defragged or do you run solid state drive?

Nope, not normal, did you fully remove the old Geforce drivers before installing the card and using the latest Radeon drivers.

There's great airflow. I have a 200mm fan on the side cover, 1 120mm for exhaust, 2 120mm fans on front of case, 2 120mm fans on top of the case. Running OCZ SSD.

I uninstalled all of nvidia drivers, then used ccleaner. Downloaded the latest drivers.

Check on the device manager to see if the display hardware is working property. Click on Windows Logo> Right click Computer> Properties> on the left column, find "Device Manager"> Then in those lists, find "Display Adapters" and What's your driver version? 12.xx-13.xx? Try scanning for hardware change by right clicking the Display Adapters. Let us know what's going on. Re-installing Windows would the the last thing to do.

lower your gaming resolution. what happens?

go to windows update. give you anything good?

Driver is 13.1, I downloaded early this morning.
No changes in hardware no problems.
Windows rates it 7.9 if that helps.
Nothing in windows update.
Put skyrim in windowed mode and lagged badly,
World of warcraft same effect. When I turn the camera left and right to look around it's really jerky and I get 1-5 fps.

CPU bottlenecking? Are any of the cores maxxed out while gaming?
April 18, 2013 11:07:53 PM

It's because you bought a amd card what did you expect ? I am kidding sounds like your card is faulty honestly.

reset cmos. something is not set right somewhere.

Do you guys think OP CPU could be the issue ? I woud think not but maybe.

that's why i told him to lower res. system settings will tell a lot.

you should manually delete the old nvidia drivers

Lets try doing graphic test like 3DMARK11, MSI KOMBUSTER, or UNIGINE. See if one of those you used lagged as well. If it is then something is seriously wrong with the system. Resetting BIOS, check cpu usage, use MSI afterburner graph to see if the graphic usages are at least above 60%. If it keeps dropping instead of going up then its probably the card. Before sending the card back, do a fresh install on OS, before you install the drivers for AMD. Let the windows completely finish the updates. Keep checking till there aren't anymore updates available at the time. Then you can start installing drivers for the card.
