i just purchased a Radeon 8500 retail..n as excited as i ever could have been..i tried this first w/ my counter-strike game..(open-gl mode @1024*768..thats it..no other settings n no oc-ing yet)..to my disappointment..the result was like s***!!..it was lagging all the time...so i tried it on d3d mode..again..no improvements had been noted.
does anyone knows whut should i do?..or r there some settings i should change in the games or in the card itself??
plz help! thanx!
i ahve the radeon 8500dv AIW not overclocked and original drivers off the install cd. my CS res is 1024x768 and i am getting my max 100fps with excellent quality. if v-sync is deafault then that's on too because i didn't mess with those setting yet. is there some other way that your measuring your video cards performance other than the fps on net graph?
100fps is good, actually..i hope i could have that high fps, too..sigh..maybe my vid card is defective..~@@~
anyway..i also didnt make any change on the settings but have the latest driver installed..yet..i only got an avg of 40-50 fps..i wonder..if anyone ever makes any change on any setting to get radeon 8500 to run @ its full power..im really lookin forward to see that happen on my case
y..ur rite..my sis 630/730s chipset is not good..i once had the mobo gone up to 133mhz external clock..n my system locked up rite away..to solve the prob..i had to clear my cmos...i was then told that my mobo could only handle up to 100mhz external clock..really pi**ed off
tru.k7s5a would be a good choice for my nxt system upgrade
btw..heard some ppl r talkin bout their radeon cards havin a new 3.3ns ram or 3.8ns ram...so n so..wut on earth is that?..how do i check that from my card?..anyone?
Doesn't the 630/730 have onboard video? If so make sure it is disabled in BIOS. If there isn't an option to do this then look in Device Manager and see if the onboard video is there. If it is there then just disable it in the hardware profile.
Are there AGP drivers for the chipset? Try using the latest.
