I just recently upgraded my old sapphire 2g radeon hd 6570 to an asus r9 270x

however when i replaced my old card with the new one, i never removed the old graphics card drivers and just installed the new graphics card drivers with the new drivers. Then when i tested it out, i only got about a 5-10 increase in fps, and it feels almost the same as the old one.I then removed the old one with the amd cleanup utility and driversweep(free version). I then reinstall the drivers with the drivers CD, and it was still the same performance.

i looked up my graphics card in device manager and got this, my new graphics card

however when i searched it up in cpu-z i got this, my old graphics card

(the old 6570 was a sapphire card, yet it says asus)

i was wondering if theres a way to remove all of my old 6570 drivers completely so it doesnt interfere with the new 270x drivers, please help!

What CPU do you have? It could be the limiting factor..

The 4100 shouldn't limit your performance that much; I would suggest re-installing your Windows installation. I always re-install Windows after adding a new part (especially GPUs) because many times the graphics drivers will not completely uninstall.

Don't take this the wrong way but have you connected both power leads to the card? It's one of the most common issues (and it's nice to know I'm not the only scatterbrain who does it). ;) 
Sounds like a driver issue.
First download and save the latest WHQL drivers from the AMD site, don't use Beta drivers and don't download from anywhere else.
If you have any tweaking software like Afterburner or Precision installed, uninstall it and delete any profiles when asked.
Restart.
If there's no change try this:
Uninstall the current drivers and use the drivercleaner to clear up the mess.
Restart.
Manually go through the system and delete anything left over.
Restart.
Install the drivers you downloaded earlier.
Restart.
Problem solved?
