HELP! drivers make games unplayable!
Dec 23, 2012, 9:55 AM
Hey out there!
I had been running my 7850 with the AMD ,11 beta for a month, when i suddenly started getting very low performance.
Basically i am getting 90% stress on the GPU on my desktop, higher temperatures too.
I tried different drivers, but nothing helps - it only runs acceptably when i have NO drivers downloaded.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 (Evo 212 cooler)
8,00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 2436MHz (Vengeance RAM)
ASRock 970 Extreme4
AMD Radeon HD 7850 Twin Frozr III
596GB Western Digital WDC WD6400AACS-00D6B1 ATA Devic
