Horrible HD 4770 Performance

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have the Radeon HD 4770, as well as a Phenom II X4 940, 4 gb of ddr2 ram, and I have win7 64 bit. But Fable 2 is only playable at a resolution of 800 something by 800 something. And thats at the absolute minimum settings. I have tried new drivers and everything. Same problem in World of Warcraft too. I never used to have this problem, I was always able to play games like WoW, Call of Duty, Dragon Age 1 and 2, all with max graphics (not always max AA tho) at 1920x1080. I didn't game for a while, and when I re-installed WoW two weeks ago, I noticed this horrendous drop in FPS. Suggestions anyone?

PS. I have overclocked my 4770 (and CPU), but not out of reason and always in a safe temp range. 815 mhz core and 830 mhz memory.

Another interesting side note: some keys on my keyboard stopped working seemingly shortly after I noticed the drop in performance.

PPS: Sorry for the strange writing in this post, I posted almost the same thing on a video on youtube of fable 2 with this card, and it takes so long to type with broken keys that i just copy pasted and edited a bit.

Are you 100% sure your overclocks are stable? Pushing my CPU too far caused my desktop to respond like a snail.

On another thought, what are the specifications of the rig in question?

^ - that is true also with me - try reducing your CPU clock.

I thought I tried that, but I'm not sure, so I'll try it again in a moment. I also thought to reduce the GPU clock to stock. If it still isn't right, what else can I do?

If it still has a problem at all stock settings, let us know...I hate when this happens. But my go-to problem solver on my PC is reinstalling. Not everything, just WoW.

agree, maybe it is overheating, and when cpu overheats is lowers performance seriously, almost making it stop
run core temp to check temperatures of cpu
i ran just my cpu hot just as an test to show somebody how it stops working properly
bad company 2 and 80°C with amd just makes it go so much laggy (didn't run this long, i'm not a moron, i know what my cpu can take, and just wanted to show him what happens, because he didn't believe me that that is what i'm saying is problem with his cpu)

also are you on stock cooler?
have you applied new paste recently?
maybe a simple change of thermal paste will solve things, just ideas...

I applied my CM Hyper 212+ with my Phenom ii x4 940, around a year ago. Im at 3.4 ghz and 1.4v, idling at 42-45 C. Because its summer, and my room is the hottest in the house, i had to recently check my overclock to make sure its at safe temps. During prime95 i was maxing at 67 C, which was of some concern to me. It was stable, and I did lots of searching, and that seems an ok temp. It wont b that all the time, just in the middle of the day.

67C isn't a good temperature, try as hard as possible to stay below 62C, and most overclocks will show instability around 50-55C. 42C at idle sounds too high, even during summer Are there two fans on your 212+?

Fable 2 was never released for the pc, If you are using an emulator of course there will be slow performance.

If you made a typo and its Fable 3, Its a poorly ported game. I also get low fps with my 5670. Turn off shadows and you will gain 20 fps
