Hello, I am having a weird problem. Most of the games that I play right now run with lower framerate than usual, but the framerate decereases only when I look at very big places or very far away. If I am in a place with a lot of stuff my framerate is still fine, but not when I look very far away. For example the port in AC3 where my ship is, now runs horribly and it didn't before or in TF2 where I go to a place that reveals a big portion of the map, the FPS goes down and there is stuttering. I tried scanning for viruses with MalwareBytes and Avast - nothing. Temps are also good. The first time I noticed this I was playing Dead Space 3. I realized that the framerate was lower than the day before that when it ran very smooth. After that I notice these weird FPS drops on almost every game I play. Do you guys have any idea what in the world is happening ?

did you change anything or update anything recently?
check your anisotropic filtering settings in the catalyst control settings. (right mouse click on desktop/catalyst control center/gaming/image quality/anisotropic filtering)
if you have it set at at a large per pixel samlples (more than 8X) your performance will decrease when looking at distant places.
May be some app you installed? Try out any Game booster, as it will help in improving FPS. Also, de-fragment your drives.
And, if you changed any setting in ATI Control Panel, change them back to Application Controlled.
And another thing I noticed in Assassin's Creed 3. In cinematics the game runs perfectly and they are not pre-rendered. So I went to the same spot after the cinematic and it started stutter like crazy... Uum ?
