I have a Msi Twin frozr R5850 . Since 2-3 days I felt a performance drop .. so i benchmarked it using furmark and was shocked to see the results
At start when i had bechmarked GTA 4 with this card the results showed up 52 Fps on average and now its showing 35 FPS average Almost 30% performance drop !
I am providing a link of the Furmark test. Please let me know whether the GPU is about to die or its because of some other facts .
I tried updating ATI catalyst and Motherboard bios but showed no difference
Also the Temperatures are very high
Probably a driver issue.Have you downloaded any patches since the last time you tested it?
Make sure you uninstall the old drivers and reboot before you install the new ones.
What kind of temps are you getting?
Don't remember much ..but i updated my Drivers a week ago.
I tried everything from uninstalling , installing the drivers that I obtained along with the graphic card , installing new catalyst 12.1.
Yes i even tried rebooting after a complete uninstall and installed again.. but did'nt help me
Temps are really worse ( Idle 56°C and reaches 96°C at full Load ) . I've provided a link where u can see the Temps
Core clock and Memory clock are throttling please help .
Thanx a Lot friend.. helped a lot
Now its workin fine.. . Actually it was a driver problem as you said . I uninstalled everything using driver sweeper and installed a fresh copy of latest Driver .
But the temps remain the same ... 91°C max and Idle around 50°C .
1 thing i wanted to ask is can i open the heat sink without Voiding warranty ?
Like i said before i have MSI R5850 Twin frozr Still 1.5 years of warranty period is left and i really don't want to screw with its warranty
