Low FPS in games with new GTX 580

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
So I just got my brand new MSI Lighting Extreme 3GB GTX 580 installed in sig rig and downloaded the latest stable drivers from Nvidia and in my games that I have tested using MSI Afterburner on-screen FPS and GPU heat monitor I am not impressed at all.

In Bad Company 2 I was getting FPS down in 11's (noticed the sticky about this with this game so posted there) so okay I thought I'd test some more games since that game seems to run like trash on Nvidia.

Got Metro 2033 running, using maxed out settings I believe and I'm getting 8 FPS!? Tried Team Fortress 2 and only getting 80-100 FPS on max settings and all were using 1920 x 1080 resolution.

*** is going on?

I even overclocked the gpu to 935 gpu clock, 1870 shader using MSI Afterburner.

I left the fan setting on auto and the temps seemed ok barely rising at all from what I remember.

Check the GPU usage and the clocks while in game. It's probably downclocking. And for metro 2033, its a tough game to max out but you shouldn't get 8FPS with 3GB ram...try new drivers

Its been discontinued on the makers website, and the review on CNET is not convincing for me to download it.

What new drivers? And how do I stop it from downclocking? Or how do I find out if its downclocking itself?

Use Afterburner, view the graphs after running the game and you'll be able to see the clocks the game was running at. If this 'downclocking' is happening, you'll see the clocks were at 405 core instead of what you have it set at.

I would run it for awhile at stock clocks until you are sure the card doesn't have any problems, just to remove the OC from the equation. Basic troubleshooting step

And when you say 8fps in Metro, are you talking about your MIN fps according to the benchmarking tool? Because with the game totally maxed, I could see that tool showing you at a min of 8fps ... but the tool is really not accurate in terms of min/max readings. And tbh Metro totally maxed even on a 580 is not going to be butter smooth in all parts of the game. It's not THAT powerful of a card. Your old 5870 doesn't even get close to maxing Metro

If you're actually playing the game and seeing fps that low, then you've got an issue. Probably shouldn't drop below 20fps in actual gameplay.

What do you get in 3dMark11, in the free 'performance mode' test? Post a link to your results in the ORB.

Well I downloaded that DriverSweeper program, I guess the devoloper still has it on their site, the site that I said took it down was Guru3d which I thought were the people behind it..

Got that installed and ATI **** was all over it once I clicked on ATI, probably at least 30 things came up with in relation to ATI, guess the Device Manager uninstall thing doesn't work quite that good eh?

Rebooted after deletetion and tried Metro 2033 again (maxed I think) with DX11 and was getting mid 40s in a tunnel.

Installing 3dMark11 now.

Yeah, check your drivers. I was using 275.33 and they sucked for my gtx 580. Went to the beta 280.19 and everything is running much better for me. Just try different drivers, a lot of people seem to like the 266.58 drivers.

Did you test in the same location in Metro before removing the AMD drivers and you were getting 8 fps there, and now you get 40fps? Are you in any way sure you're testing apples-to-apples vs. before, in other words? Or were you using the benchmark before, and now you're in the game?
