Closed Poor Performance HD4890 Tags: Radeon Performance Battlefield Graphics Last response: March 3, 2013 9:35 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Artfloriani June 14, 2012 4:42:21 AM Hello, I noticed while playing BF3 that my HD4890 was having a poor performance comparing to my friend's card. It's getting around 20-24 FPS on everything LOW in some maps. Also 3DMark performance score got 40% lower than expected. Any suggestions? My specs: Intel i7 920 XFX HD4890 6GB DDR3 Power Supply: 600W Motherboard: Intel dx58so Also, when I try to OC my card, even a bit. The card runs normally while making the overclock but it crashes when I try to play a game. And I just have a fresh Windows install, so I guess it's not driver related.

If your card performs fine in his system, we can rule out your GPU, but if it is slow in his PC too, it is a problem with your GPU. Score 0 Artfloriani June 14, 2012 1:10:04 PM Ok. He doesn't have the same card, he has a 5xxx but not as good as mine. What if it's a GPU related problem, is anything that I can do? Score 0 blade061188 June 14, 2012 1:12:51 PM There isn't a lot you can do if your GPU is dying. If it is still under warranty, you can RMA the card. Otherwise, it may be time to upgrade if your card is on the way out. But test your card first in your friend's PC first to see if there is some other problem with your system.

Once you have done that, we can help you narrow down the problem further. When you are together with your friend, also try his GPU in your PC to see how that performs as well.

But it got a 50% better score on 3DMark after using some boost tools and disabling Anti Virus. Weird...

In many old games i have seen the diff. But when it comes to battlefield 3 , I get a lot of fps drops So it is either the poor driver optimization , or dice has poor support for amd cards .
