Hello, I just bought a Sapphire HD 6870 1GB graphics card and I'm having a problem with the performance. I installed the latest drivers, connected to power supply which is 1050watt and windows experience rating is showing a lame 6.3, I thought this would give me at least a 7.5 rating? Could something be going wrong or is this card this bad?

make sure you plugged in the cable running from the screen to the gpu is connected to the 6970 not the motherboard.

they dont sell a 1gb 6970 btw

you should really play some games because what the card should score and what WEI displays isnt consistent. WEI is not a good measuring tool for that type of thing.

That's weird because my old 6850 used to score around 7.5 WEI...

hence the horribleness or WEI. my 6950 scores a 7.5.

i bet if you rerun it now it will decrease though

also you could try 3d mark 11 you should get a score around p4450 and much more reliable than windows score

even further proving WEI means absolutely nothing. the fact it scores higher then my 6950 proves that.
