ATI 5770 with low FPS results?

Hello I have resentful purchased an XFX 5770 and I am wondering if it is performing at a lower state then it should be-
It should be noted that it is now OCed to 950/1240 which has uped the FPS not hurt it.

In MW2 (Max everything with 2xAA) it seems to be running about the same frame rates as my old 4830: 60-90FPS Avg about 75. Is this normal? When I go into Counter Strike Source and run the vid stress I get about 150FPS, with everything maxed.

I was really hoping for a steady 90FPS in MW2 (Frame limiter stops it fro going any higher)- But it seems to do the exact same if not worse then my 4830.

I am running the latest drivers-

PC specs:
4GB of Ram
600W PSU
AMD 9950 Quad (2.6).


Thanks for ANY help/suggestions- It would be great if another owner of a 5770 could compare his frame rates with mine- I might have hoped for more then this card had to offer.

Best solution

Might be a bottleneck CPU problem?
I own a 5770 and here it is what mine can do: http://www.frozentek.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewt... -made by me so if you find any mistakes in writing ignore them:) . (not my first language)

Remember to register it within 30 days from the purchase date. I say register when you red this message. If not you will lose your warranty.

At what resolution do you play your games?

I registered the day I got it- This is not about my CPU, it's about my 5770 running worse then my 4830.
My CPU is slowing my card down? I also have a stock cooler on my CPU so OCing isn't much of an option.


I play at 1360 x 768

I just looked at your link and we have close to the same FPS- I guess I was expecting more then it put out- Crossfire in the future i guess.

When do you think these cards will be unavailable?
Is cross-firing on 600W fine?

Your CPU is most probably bottle necking your 5770.

Compared to my old 8800GTS, the 5770 performs far worse. Makes no sense.

Do you have the latest drivers installed?

At that resolution you should have far more fps then i have in any game in that review.

Such low resolution surely bottlenecks a old phenom



My friend's pc when playing MW2 with core i5 750 and 5770 gets average of 75 fps @ 1920*1080 and 4x AA

Then im doing fine- The lower the res, the better anything will run-

Bottlenecking because of a resolution? Biggest fail of the day
