HD Radeon 7850 low FPS

I just got a Sapphire HD Radeon 7850. I know that ATI cards seem to not do that well compared to Nvidia when it comes to WoW, but when I set WoW to DirectX11 I get single digit FPS, maybe 10 at most. What the heck?! Is something else wrong here that I am not seeing? It doesn't matter if I have the details on Ultra or Low, it is single digits. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

  1. Drivers up to date?
  2. 12.4 the newest release drivers there are.
  3. Is WoW severely CPU limited? Cause I still have the same old CPU. I thought though switching to DX11 would kind of make the game realize to unload all the work onto the GPU.
  4. I seem to remember WOW is much more CPU dependent than GPU. Try a different game like BF3, Metro, something that taxes the GPU more and see what happens.
  5. Indeed, WoW is a cpu hog and blizzard will not upgrade the engine.
