LOW FPS with GTX 560 Ti on WoW 3.3.5a

Hi there, I'm just upgrade my system from 8800 GTS 640 to GTX 560 Ti. And the problem is I got low (18 FPS, sometimes drop to 2 FPS in Dalaran) with the new 560 ti.

My Video setting, GPU driver, resolution, all other system's components (CPU, mobo, ram, etc) are SAME, the one who change just the GPU.

I can get 30 FPS+ (Never drop below 30 in Dalaran) with my old 8800 GTS. Is there something wrong with my 560 ti? do I must get a new 560 from the shop?

My specs for info :
PSU : EnLight 630 Watt
CPU : Core 2 QUad Q6600
RAM : 4 GB DDR2-800
Mobo : ASUS Rampage Formula X48
Driver : 275.33
DIsplay : 1920*1080
All Video Setting at WoW : Ultra

Please help so I can trade with the new one at the shop, thank you.

The 560Ti is for sure faster, I'd review procedures for uninstalling/removing old card and all traces of old Nvidia software first, then install new card and latest drivers....

Yes, I already do a fresh install of windows 7, and the problem still the same...

its because you have wow set to ultra. wow is heavily CPU oriented now my I7 2600k gets over 100+ fps everywhere cept orgimar. But my q6600 clocked at 3.4 ghz got only about 40-60 fps everywhere on ultra with two 470 gtxs in sli.

but he's saying he didn't change any component except the GPU. So he used to get high framerates with the same CPU and a older card. Assuming the in-game settings didn't change.

hmm it's just strange that with all SAME setting (video, driver,components, etc) it should be better than the old 8800 GTS (about 30 FPS). I expect at least the same FPS if it really CPU oriented. But now, I got worse performance, also spiky low FPS problem... (from 18 FPS to 2-6 FPS and back to normal again). I see the FPS at the same exact location on WoW (Dalaran).

Just for testing I run 3dmark Vantage with my system, and I got 199xx score in performance test. Is it normal with my settings right now..? here's the spec:
CPU : Core 2 Quad Q6600 OC'd @ 3.2 Ghz
RAM : 4 GB DDR2-PC6400
Mobo : ASUS Rampage Formula X48
GPU : ASUS ENGTX 560 TI DCII TOP OC'd @ 950 Mhz/1900 Mhz / 4400 Mhz
PSU : EnLight 630 Watt.

I just curious if My new GTX 560 Ti is working as it should, so I can trade it with a new one at the shop if my current 560 Ti is a defect card...

Are you sure your not running the game in DX11 mode? because of the new DX 11 card.

Your card isn't on here, but later in the review it shows that your previous card couldn't have gotten the fps that you claimed...So, to add to the complication I'll sum it up:
You are correct in assuming that your new card should run everything fast on ultra settings in DX11. You are incorrect in 'claiming' your previous 8800GTS could run everything on ultra. I don't know where that leaves us.

Right but that review also states that they where using an i7 980 which is clearly the reason wow gets that high of FPS. They even say its CPU bound.

I play Wow. I have a Geforce 560ti.

On my old i5 650 I had acceptable frame rates on ultra

On my new 2600k I have 100+ at all times.

It has to be CPU issues.

Wow. That is a strange problem. Maybe it is your CPU, not the card.
I have a problem. Should I buy an intel or AMD CPU for my first gaming rig?

Hello

I have the same problem, only 16 FPS with a Asus GTX560 OC
Have a Saberttooth 990fx for motherboard
8Go RAM Kingston HyperX
And an AMD FX4100 for CPU
SSD : 4 OCZ revodrive in RAID 0
OS : Windows7 ultimate x64µ

I don't understand how a PC like it can be so low in a so old game
WOW 3.3.5

16FPS full options, 130FPS low quality

What is the problem?!

Perhaps my CPU is'n the best, but it really don't sucks, WOW 3.3.5 should works completely in high quality but it isn't!

(Sorry for my bad english, I'm french)

Is anyone have an answer?

Have you guys cleaned out the cache folder in wow? Sometimes cleaning it out solves some problems. Beyond that in my three years of playing wow often it doesn't take much of a card to play a single wow client even with the best of settings unless 1080p or higher. I multybox and that is about the only time where a very good card is needed along with a decent quad core cpu. Stick with the stock 60fps limit instead of trying to aim for 130+ lol. That psu looks very much like a cheap low quality generic and I suggest that you replace it if it is not at least 80+ Bronze rated.


EDIT: Reduce your AA and AF settings and reduce the shadow quality settings. Don't need ultra quality settings for everything.

I am pretty sure it's because you're playing in private servers. BUY THE GAME!

I think you need to install new drivers... but I think your CPU might be bottlenecking your GPU.

If the OP upgrades to retail, and still has problems, then it will be a problem with his hardware. Until then, the fault lies within the buggy private server.

I'm playing on a private server, i've ever suppres files in cache, I know it's the first thing to do because i'm game master.

I've tested with an old card, to be exact, a gainward 9800gt 512 in my old PC with a core2quad and a MB P5WDH and 4Go of DDR2 in full high quality without lag.

Iknow a lot of things about hardware settings, i know that my PC Cannot be so low in normal circumstances.
All the components of my computer are new and rescently mounted without error, that's why i suppose there's a software or driver problem, i've ever uninstall all and reinstall but it seems thats not resolving my problem.

I repeat, all of the components are OK, i'm searching for the problem.

Firstly, private servers aren't for research or education purposes. Secondly, they are against World of Warcraft terms of use, so they aren't legal.

End of discussion, I am not arguing with you anymore. I just pointed, that it's against forum rules.

I am having the same problem. I "upgraded" from an Nvidia geoforce 470 to an Evga geoforce 560. No system change. Running both on a Gigabyte mother board with AMD Phenom II processor and 4gig ram. The old card could maintain 102 fps in a raiding environment while the new card is spiking down to as low as 8 fps and no higher than 27.
