When I got my sapphire 7950 a couple weeks back, it was awesome. I was running nearly every game at ULTRA above 60 FPS. But then recently, I noticed my performance starting to drop off. I would hit 30-40 FPS in bf3 where before it never went below 60. I checked Trixx to make sure my overclocks were still being used (1125/1510) and it says they were, but it didn't seem as if they were in effect. Then, I deleted Trixx since it was being buggy and said my clock speeds were something they were not on the info tab, and used ccc to overclock my card. When I did that, I played a couple games of bf3 happily with none of the performance issues I had before. So I turned the game off and thought I had solved the problem by deleting Trixx. But just yesterday, I began to play again and then my performance went back to how it was with all the problems! (30-50 FPS) I am getting very frustrated because this problem doesn't even make sense to me. It says my clocks are running at the levels I se them to, but this constant change in performance is really aggravating me. I have the latest beta drivers btw. If you have any insight on this issue that would be very helpful. thanks.
driver roll back? or completely re install drivers for your gpu. I had a problem where my old 6970 direct cu2 was hitting 85C and lagging, deleted drivers re installed and back to only hitting high 60 to mid 70C. worth a try.
so I just checked GPU-z and it looks like my GPU load is the problem! It never goes higher then 60-70% while playing bf3. I don't think I ever damaged my card since I never changed the voltage. Are there any fixes I can do to make my GPU load go up to normal?
