More about 6950 bottleneck
  1. Whats your native resolution?
  2. 1680 * 1050
  3. at 1680x1050 perhaps slightly. what games are specifically noticing low performance?

    notice the the max difference in that particular set of games like 2-3%, the X4 970 being comparable to your processor with a 200 mhz difference in clock speed, CPU is not the end all for gaming in the vast majority of games.
  4. and If I overclock?does it gonna bottleneck?
  5. I think not.
  6. >try a game, use 1680x1050.
    >try with 1400x900 or 1360x768 (anything lower)
    >Notice fps increase (cpu not yet a bottleneck)

  7. Overclock it to 3.6GHZ. Beyond 3.6 the X4s dont seem to show any performance increase.
