upgrade from gtx560 2gb superclocked to gtx760 low frame rates.

Hi, I just upgraded from a gtx560 2gb gdrr5 superclock to a gtx 760 and I am not noticing ANY difference in frame rates.

I havn't had tons of time to test but in diablo 3 with vsync sitting at 60 fps with the gtx560, in combat I would usually drop to about 20-30 fps. Just a quick test with the 760, and I am getting the same results. It does not feel like an upgrade to me...

With vsync turned off, with the gtx560 I would sit around 105 fps. With the gtx760 I appear to be sitting at 70-80 or so...

  1. I doubt you will see any improvement. D3 is a very CPU bound game.
  2. Hmm. I just tested in WoW as well and I don't see any improvements. On ultra settings in WoW with the 560 flying around outside of the pandarian cities I would get about 30 fps. I'm getting 25-30 as well with the 760. No difference...
  3. Whats the rest of your PC?
  4. WoW is another CPU bound game, even more so than D3.

    *Looking at this BENCHMARK, it sounds like you've got a weak CPU that would bottleneck things in many games:

    Even a Phenom II X2 (dual-core) CPU was averaging 103FPS with a GTX580.

    Tell us what CPU you have, but from what you report it sounds like it is so weak that it's completely bottlenecking the GTX760 most of the time.

    If you have a descent enough motherboard and PSU you could try some overclocking on the CPU and CPU-NB. IT would help.

    Your CPU scores less than HALF of a modern CPU. It's also WORSE than this indicates because it's an AMD CPU with weak per-core so game benchmarks would be even LOWER relative to a modern INTEL CPU.

    Your CPU scores about 40% of the i7-3770 so in games would likely be closer to a THIRD of the performance (i.e. 20FPS instead of 60FPS).

    OVERCLOCKING:
    Always helps, but can only help to a maximum of the overclock. For example, a 20% overclock at best raises you to 24FPS from 20FPS.
