Decent Performance

Hi,

I've concerns that I might not be running the optimal driver. I went back into a game (CS:S) and it seemed to be struggling in some situations and this is a PC which shouldn't be.

I ran this benchmark and I'm falling behind similar pc's. Mine is highlighted.

Anyone got any ideas?

ok i hate to state the obvious but try this if you haven't already.

go to the manufactures website and find your card in the driver update section (they will have one) install, restart, and see what you've got.
July 5, 2011 9:40:59 PM

I can't because under the 5850 series there are several options and any number of them could be the driver for my card. It's not clear at all

Oh and I've only just got the catalyst control centre/drivers working and I'm reluctant to make changes. I was hoping if you/someone could tell me if there is anything to learn from the benchmarking information.

ok, in catalyst is there a recommended option like auto or something, if so turn that on.
July 5, 2011 10:32:59 PM

I won't change anything with directions like that. I could cause more harm than good.

Hate to say it but if you don't like tweaking, be happy. Some people have 1/4 the performance.
