Hi. I ran heaven's benchmark test a month ago when I just got my GTX 670 dc-ii.
Results a month ago: FPS: 42.2 Scores: 1064
Min FPS: 8.5 Max FPS: 112.2
Tesselation extreme, 1080p, 16x anisotropy, direct3d11
Later I overclocked my CPU from 2.80GHz to 3.80GHz fully stable.
When I did the benchmark again today, I got the following results.
Results today: FPS: 30.6 Scores: 772
Min FPS: 14.2 Max FPS: 75.4
As you can see there is a HUGE FPS drop. I thought that maybe it was because of my overclock so I reverted back to stock settings like a month ago but I had the same results as my 3.80GHz overclock. Any ideas why my FPS dropped like crazy?
1) Overclock, updated drivers and then downgraded back, the FPS has changed.
2) I did change my graphics drivers, I upgraded to a BETA version but later downgraded back to the latest stable version 301.42 (when installing I pressed clean installation)
3) I did it but it gave the same low fps result.
5) I don't think so since I ran the test with STOCK cpu clock and OC cpu clock and both ended in the same low FPS result.
Test your card with YOUR games, and see if it is satisfactory there.
After all, that is what you really care about.
I did and thats the reason why I ran the benchmark test. I am having FPS drops in battlefield 3. It is very unstable between 50-60 fps and then it stays around 45 fps and drops to 30's and then back to around 40-50...
Finally I got back to around 39-40 fps on heaven.
I got rid of the 301.42 and used drive sweeper and installed 304.79 and suddenly it changed from 30 fps to 39-40 fps. I don't know why since the 1st heaven benchmark test was with 301.42 but anyway I got it solved.
