hd 6970 low fps

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
HI.
Just wonder if my cpu is BOTTLENECKING my gpu. When i play bad company 2 i get 50 avg on max. I will buy bulldozer if it gets released before armageddon. I cant understand why they postpone all the time. My cpu is overclocked from 2.8 to 3.5 at stock voltage. Maybe it is the lack of L3. Crysis runs at 60 fps all the time (dont even go to 61 fps)maxed out with DX11 pack and High Res pack. At stock cpu bad company runs 35 fps. Must i wait for bulldozer or buy one that is out there. Which CPU will get the job done

Thanks

1. Download MSI Afterburner to see your Exact gpu usage
2. Are you v-sycned. cuz v-synch locks you in at 58-60fps all the time.
3. Are you using Catalyst 11.6 or 11.7 or 11.8.
4. Some Intel fan boy Is definately gonna come in here and say you are bottlenecked and to get the 2600k. Make sure your setting are okay first.

Have you overclocked the CPU-NB?
How is the GPU usage vs CPU usage?
post #4 of 20
If you are able to run Crysis fine, then there shouldn't be problems.

We need more information what game setting you're running on, monitor resolutions and computer temperatures.

I have HD 6970 and I ran Bad Company 2 on single GPU on Ultra 8xAA. I do get average 40FPS and low 30FPS with V-Sync off with stock clocks. (1920x1080)

I'm pretty sure it's normal unless you're coming from 5970. 6970 is not as strong as 580 or not better than 5970 in term of performance.

Don't look at the numbers. The HD 6000 series has been redesigned and it's a bit slower than the last generation HD5000 in term of raw performances but the up side it gains memory size and faster tesselations.

Hi thanks for the replies.
First, in afterburner my gpu usage stays on 98% to 100% at 78 degrees.(WHILE PLAYING GAMES)
v-sycned is also of in all of my games and are using Catalyst 11.6 because there are some bugs in 11.7 and 11.8.
Second, my CPU NB is set to auto. Just mesed with FSB because multiplier is locked at x14. AT 100% CPU usage is hovers at 30 degrees, and CPU usage is at 60% + while playing games.

Also when i overclock my gpu to :D1 GHZ:D FPS increase by about 15 but then gpu temp rise to over 95 degrees:eek:

What CPU DO YOU RECOMMEND. PRICE IS NOT A PROBLEM. laugher.gif
THANKS

If price isn't a problem, yeah get a whole new sandy bridge system. If you want to be a bit more frugal go pick up a Phenom II x6. As for your current Athlnon X4 yes, lack of L3 cache and it being an AMD quad will result in less performance in BFBC2.

Yes I am dying to get a sandy bridge. But i am holding to amd because bulldozer gets released in mid September. So must i buy sandy or bulldozer or even wait for intel's new ivy bridge that will be released next year.
