Ok so yesterday this just started and not exactly sure. My eyefinity performance started decreasing, fps just dropped just being on my desktop, if I am in chrome or just mousing over text my fps drops and insane amount. Of course this also applies to games as well but outside of games just looking at my wallpaper is a bit strange.

I thought maybe it was a bad driver so I uninstalled all AMD products including chipset drivers and anything else AMD related like hydravision and profiles used in catalyst manager, after that I re-installed two (2) different versions of catalyst display driver. The stable 12 version and then the 13.4 version by catalyst. Still no success. So then I ran memtest86 to see if it was my memory, passed all tests on the memory. To no avail I could not find what the hell the matter was. So I took a drastic step by re-installing my operating system. Figured windows was the problem. Denied again still having the same problem after a clean install.

Bios has not been tampered with. I have no over clocking utilities installed. I'm running out of options and losing idea's. This is weird though. I configured my displays to disable the eyefinity when I only play games that don't support the eyefinity, and surprise surprise no lag, no fps drop in the game or just looking at my desktop.

Below are my specs so I hope I can get a definitive answer out of this:

I think I may had resolved my issue. Turns out that it was a bad driver. I re-installed the drivers from the CD that came with my 7790. All is perfect no lag, nothin'. Mark thread as resolved and closed please. I guess I shant trust drivers from amd anymore at least the ones that aren't fully tested before release.
