I bought this card 6 months ago and i was very happy with it cause it was very fast for the games i play,like league of legends, skyrim and some others.

To be more specific when i first used this card it gave me in league of legends 70 to 140 fps depending on game state but no less than 70.
plus i always keep it updated with the new correct drivers that i also install correct:>

Now days and after 6 months and without any new hardware installed on my pc,or any significant software change at my pc

its performance dropped significantly,
now in league of legends it cant go more than 65 fps and in heavy loads game states it goes even to 30-40.And its has the same fps drop across all my games.
those are half the numbers that i had when i bought it and it does that for the last 2 weeks
and simply i cant find why..

my system is very stable and if i was not playing any games i would not even notice it cause in videos in streaming is all good.
also my cards temperatures seem very normal.

i did the extended windows memory test and no problems there too.

i reinstalled windows but still the same performance so i was sure its not a windows problem i even try it to windows 8 and ( i have windows 7 ultimate 64)but its completely the same.
i even changed the slot card is attached in my motherboard, but nothing..

i m so desperate i don t know what else to try.

please if help me if u can

it might be a game update. you should test it with 3dmark alike benchmarks and compare results via web :)

Could be a game update, as Bartq said, or it could be an AMD driver update that installed on your computer, or is it possible that, while you were playing one of your games, you inadvertently changed settings for the game . . . like adding 16XAA or something equally outrageous . . . that would put an additional burden on your card?

Check your game settings and see if somewhere you have changed to an extreme setting. Also check your video card settings. Somewhere you are putting a greater burden on the GPU than you have in the past.

Good luck!!

like in here http://community.futuremark.com/hardware/gpu/AMD+Radeon... you can compare it to 3dmark11


LOL how can this be possible..
my score is pretty higher and rarer than the average-.-
now i m totally confused..
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6587032

It says driver is not aproved because now i m using the latest beta driver from amd in my desperation to fix it


your card has higher clocks that average compare to this card http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/2873043

yes it is box overclocked i did not touch it!
but even with that the card should supposed to be faster not slower-.-

the cards clocks are the manufacturers overclocking.
but i even tried to down clock it, but it did not work either .
i guess i did try everything but my fps are still the same..

i suppose thats you card http://uk.hardware.info/productinfo/143689/sapphire-rad... check out what score they got there it says 3,950. at that point i would not complain as it work as should.

you may go in to catalyst and switch to performance option

yes thats my card:>

i did that and actually i tried every combination of catalyst to full quality to full performance and the fps are the same both in full performance and in full quality.
also for ingames both on lowest qualitys and full qualitys i never get more than 65 fps compared to 120 i was getting-.-

but since ive tried it all maybe is not the card faults after all?

Yes the 3DMark 11 score is fine, about the same as mine with an O/C HD7770.
How does the CPU run during games?...Just a thought that it could be the bottleneck if it can't keep up for some reason..
Such as it is being used excessively by something else..

It looks like from his benchmark results, he is running an overclocked FX-6100 which should not bottleneck a 7770 in any way at all. My OC 6100 keeps up with my 7950.. Sounds like a game update or something began to affect your performance.

Must have just been an issue with a previous patch or something. In the patch notes it may say something about it.
