Bad performance with 660ti

HI .............I've bought Galaxy 660ti/2g recently .I hoped that I get much better performance with it than my old 560ti .I only secure like ~8fps in most heavy games FC3/BF3/CRYSIS2 ,and even with old games like N4S hot pursuit\saints row the third\sleeping dogs\ASM I get a disaster frame rate :
N4S hot pursuit 70fps to 28fps ----------------cpu load 40% gpu load 38%
saints row the third 42fps to 25fps-------------cpu load 51% gpu load 67%
sleeping dogs 68fps to 27fps-------------------cpu load 73% gpu load 98%
ASM 78fps to 30fps----------------------------cpu load 53% gpu load 73%
SO why I keep get the frame drop ,its make the games unplayable?
Note that I still use my old sys I3 550@3.2/4M ram4G which I think is good enough for these old games !
PLZ I need help quickly . I feel realy disappointed from the 660ti

More about performance 660ti
  1. Did you reinstall Nvidia drivers when you got your new card?
  2. yes of course
  3. Which driver version are you running? Could you post your full specs?
  4. 310.70 - WHQL
  5. 310.70 - WHQL
  6. Ok you answered half of my question. Could you post your full specs now?

    The CPU is fairly weak compared to the GPU I'd say, that is why your framerate hasn't changed that much.

    Maybe 4 the newest games but what about the oldest ones?

    those you call old is like 1 year old? Your CPU is even older and most games requires a quad-core CPU to get high details nowadays.
  11. yes but most these games doesn't use 4cores ,some even DX9
  12. What about your power supply unit?

    If it could power a GTX 560 ti, it will power a GTX 660 ti due to the lower power consumption.

    Sleeping Dogs

    Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU

    Saints Row The Third

    Processor: Any Quad Core Processor (Intel® Core i5 or AMD Phenom™ II X4)

    N4S only had minimum requirements.

    NSM I don't even know about?

    So you can see by those two that it is recommended to have a quad-core CPU in "old" games.

    That's correct, but better be safe than miss a thing or two. I'm also wondering whether the wiring is correct.

    @OP: Could you list all the connectors you have connected somewhere from the power supply unit to something in your PC?

    I disagree, the frame rate has dropped considerably in a number of cases, that is not a bottleneck issue.
  17. did you un-install old drivers first? reboot and then install new? I know its a dumb question, but this sounds exactly like that kind of issue.

    I don't even mention the drops. He doesn't see a big increase with the average FPS, and that is because of the CPU. Read his thread again.

    I'll quote you again.

    the frame rates have changed a lot, they have roughly halved (not what you said above), above you were answering as if he had asked the question why hasn't my frame rate increased.

    "I hoped that I get much better performance with it than my old 560ti .I only secure like ~8fps in most heavy games "

    Stop being ignorant and try to help, instead of arguing with me.
  21. If the OP could resolve this argument by clearly stating what's wrong would be great - that way we could help him much faster. As it stands now, the problem may be understood in more than one way.
  22. Actually I'm facing more than one problem ;the first is the the poor increasing in the frame rate ,but the real problem is the fps goes to ~ 75 then drops again to ~30 in no time which makes any game unplayable. If I am suffering form bottle-neck ,I don't suppose to reach any high frame like the 75 and just stuck with a low fps ,and lets not forget that I never suffered from instability in 560ti performance . I used to get 35~50 in most games e.g BF3-maxed settings/AA off/1080p 38~50 .My real problem was with FC3 /23fps and 4 that I've to change my gpu
    About my PWR is OCZ 500w 80+ ,is more than good to 660ti that only consumes ~150w not like my old 560ti that consumes ~180w,and believe me the power pins are connected correctly to the VGI card 6pin/8pin.
    For the driver installation ,there an option in nvidia driver which allows u to clean the old and reinstall a new automaticly .So yes I uninstalled the old driver first.
    More than that I tried to install different version of DX that may solve the problem and guess what it didn't work either ! :cry:
  23. Maybe there incompatibility between the PCI Express input (pciE2)and the card(pciE3) :heink:
  24. Thanks for telling us exactly what's wrong.

    I now suspect overheating. Could you download HWMonitor (http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html), install it and run it before launching the game? Then, could you play the game until it lags, minimize the game, maximize the HWMonitor window (the one you launched before the game) and take a screenshot? Finally, could you upload the screenshot to www.imageshack.us (don't forget to select "Do not resize" option!) and post the link to the uploaded image here?

    Dear sir about my sys overheating I sure that I've never suffered from such thing espeically I.ve just changed my old card from two days which was worked just fine;these results have been taken by AIDA64 Extreme Edition and PLAYCLAW3:-
    (mother=25\cpu=38\gpu64)degree . So as u see its not a matter of overheating ,its still something else. :(
  26. Could you do exactly what I asked? Seriously, why don't you want to show us the screen shot or do anything that requires even a little bit effort from your side?
