Hd 4870 x2 not running crysis at its best ?

Hi I recently built my computer and used a hd 4870 x2 gpu

But when I play crysis on very high settings on 1680 x 1050 I get bad fps like 10-18 fps....

I have the latest driver cata 8.10

my hardware is

mobo = gigabyte x48

cpu = intel e8600 3.33

case = antec 1200

psu = corsair 1000wt

ram = 4gb mushkin ddr2 800

os = vista 64bit

any ideas? perhaps i need to oc?

More about 4870 running crysis
  1. our setups are quite similar, you obviously should be getting much better frames than that. Couple of things: Are you using AA ? Have you done a defrag lately, did you run driver sweeper before installing Cat 8.10? Is Catalyst AI enabled in the CCC ? Do you have Crysis patched fully? I am sure your problem lies somewhere in there. Good luck.

  3. You really need to overclock that cpu. Those do over 4GHz easy!

    Oh and just wondering, the game ain't slipping into windowed mode is it?

    I would over clock it some but im not sure how to over clock the cpu + im using the stock fan cooler and im not sure how much the stock fan can handle = =

    don't listen to them about overclocking, absolutely nothing to do with your problem.

    However, make sure it is never in windowed mode as it only runs in 2d mode i believe.



    all right thanks

    We're not saying it's the source if his problems, because other people have already answered his question. We're just saying that overclocking to 4ghz isn't going to hurt anything, and if anything, will increase performance.

    how high do you think i can oc on a stock fan?

    eventually ill want to oc the cpu
  10. On stock, I don't know. Probably ~3.6 - 3.7ghz, depending on the temps. You can go a lot further with a decent cooler.
