GTX 690 low performance issues.

GPU: GTX 690
CPU: AMD FX-8350 @ 4.3GHz
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 16GB

Hey there! I feel like my GPU is working lower than it has done in the past... I got it for christmas last year and I've not OC'd it all.

But I swear it used to run BF4 over 100FPS constantly. But now runs at a constant 50-60FPS on full ultra unless I turn some setting down/off where It will reach 110FPS at most.

I've just ran Heaven Benchmark on the Extreme preset and my max FPS was 74.6 (minimum being 20.6FPS).

I did notice on the benchmark however on the top right corner was this information:

GeForce GTX 690 (a)
Graphics: 1202 MHz
Memory: 3004 MHz
Temperature: 80c

GeForce GTX 690 (b)
Graphics: 324 MHz
Memory: 324 MHz
Temperature: 34c

So an additional question to my main one would be: Why is one part of the GPU working at high speeds whereas the other partition of the GTX 690 isn't.

Any help would be greatly appreciated because it's really bugging me that my friends GTX 680 is getting a much better FPS than my GTX 690...

  1. Are you using new beta drivers? If you are roll back, to the latest WHQL's, or the one's that worked fine before.

    Go here, download them, and run them, on the intallation screen there's a little box that says clean install, check it and perform the install. If you don't know what your current drivers are, right click your desktop, go to nvidia control panel, and click System Information on the bottom left corner.

  4. Ok. I'll try that later in the day. Don't have access to my PC right now. I'll write a reply once I've tried it and tested it out. Thanks for your help in advance :)

    I don't think I had set up my monitors right and was running one partition on one, and the other on my 2nd monitor, I switched them up so that I could use Multi GPU on my main monitor and it works like a charm. However before I did this, I did as you suggested and rolled back my drivers and saw a dramatic increase but this was because I was now only using one monitor. So basically this was all my fault and didn't understand about plugging in monitors the right way. All corrected now and getting much higher frames every where :)
