So I recently got myself a VTX3D R9 290 > Basically some DirectCU2 ripoff by the Powercolor rebrand VTX3D. Doing some benchmarks, been going through 280, 280X also from VTX3D without probs. I set up this card (R9 290) with both 14.4 and 14.7 but the same problem persists.
Problem: I launch Crysis 3, and within 30 seconds I get a frame cap of 3-4 FPS. Sometimes I manage to get into game, but the coolers arent making a sound. It's like the card is deliberately not performing in the game. I haven't been checking the clocks and such yet but I imagine they are just idling like the coolers.
I also realized that I had I had the Quiet Mode bios switched on, but changing to ûber doesn't make any difference. Same benchmarks in other games, and still the same problem in Crysis.
Full pc specs?
Temps on your cpu and gpu at idle and in game?
There aren't any issues in that order. Have already tested several other games without any issues at all.Actually Crysis ran fine until I reseated the CPU yesterday. Reinstalled Crysis now, gonna see how it works in a sec.
Reinstalled the game completely and first launch actually got into game fine, started campaign but I experienced quite low fps considering the system. Mostly because we have already been looking at results fra 280, 280X and they did better. We haven't tried with the 290 again but it seems the 3-4 FPS problem has returned...
We had 1 succesful launch, we tried to copy game files over to Program Files instead of Program Files (x86). Thought we had fixed it > Guess not. This works as a workaround, but it requires you two change the game directory and "verify/download" the game every time you want to play it. Not really worthwile.
Question is if our bench rig isn't doing stuff right. Instead of booting from an SSD we are using an old 7200 RPM for boot and a new 7200 for games.
