Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.
I recently upgraded my graphics card to a Gigabyte GTX 670 from a GTX 560 and have been noticing issues with frame rate even at lower settings. I tried updating the drivers to the 301.42 and 304.48 beta drivers respectively but neither installation solved the issue.
My first thought was that it was a bottlenecking issue as the GPU was fluctuating between 40% and 60% usage, however my processor never shows over 90% usage on each core so I doubt it's that (each core fluctuates between 80-90%).
For reference, my specs are as follows:
Motherboard: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4955 Black Edition, stock clock (3.2Ghz)
RAM: Muskin DDR3 Dual-Channel 1333MHz - 8GB
GPU: Gigabyte GTX670 OC (2GB)
PSU: OCZ 750W Fatal1ty Series
If anyone has and advice they could give me I would greatly appreciate it as I am sad that my new card isn't working as it should
See if OC improves things. If it does, I would get a cooler master 212evo cooler first. It can be reused for future builds anyway. And if you can drag it out, wait for haswell CPU to be released next year. It's on a different socket, and should be a performance upgrade to sandy/ivy bridge
Seems to run in 2.0 under load, running Unigine. Also seem to get FPS between 80-90 with the program running in 1920x1080, no tessellation, shaders set to high, 4X AF and 2X AA. I'm assuming this isn't the best way to test gaming performance though.
