HD5670 Not performing well enough - Page 2

post #11 of 34
Turn the settings down. A 5670 is almost the equivalent to my 9600gt (I have one and it is the exact same Fps).
The 5670 Is a weak card so that may be the source of your trouble.

I know that it's a very weak card, but I just don't understand how others with same or worse card get better fps in games.

And I have turned down every setting in JC2, it's still hardly playable.

Did you disable page file in windows?

1) You need to enable your hardware memory hole in BIOS. That is a very good chance as to where your missing RAM is at. LGA 775 can handle 4GB of RAM just fine. Find your memory hole option in BIOS, and enable it (or disable if its already on, I forget which way it goes).

2) A 4x PCIe 2.0 slot won't harm your framerates. My GTX580 doesn't even see a huge framerate loss at 4x. Your HD5670 will see literally no difference between 4x and 16x, so that doesn't matter.

3) Ignore gameplay VIDEO'S as reference. You can record a video at 5 frames per second, and the video will come out looking like its playable (I know, I've done it before with an older, slower machine than yours playing GTA IV). You're getting the performance that should be expected with your card. Make sure PhysX is disabled, as that could very easily be causing your issues since you lack Nvidia hardware to run it.

No, it's enabled.

I tried looking everywhere, but I couldn't find such thing as Hardware memory hole. Could it be I simply don't have this option, it's pretty horrible BIOS and Mobo in general, doesn't even let me overclock.

But, is it normal that my windows experience score went down when I got a more powerful CPU. I just feel like CPU might be letting me down.

Windows Experience Index is honestly junk. If you want to see if your CPU is performing where it should be, run a real benchmark of some kind.

WEI could also be flawed to be reading your cache amount on the CPU (I'm honestly not sure what it uses to determine CPU speed, so don't quote me on that). If your old CPU had more cache than your new one, that could explain the loss in WEI, but an increase in performance either way.

I honestly have no REAL answer to your WEI problems, as nobody around here uses it to actually gauge performance.

EDIT:
And your motherboard DOES support 4GB of RAM (just checked). So there has to be some sort of memory hole option in BIOS to enable all 4GB to be used. Are you running Windows 64bit? That could also have an effect as well if you're only on a 32bit copy of Windows.

Please visit here, and put in your full computer specifications so its easier for us to help you.

Yes, the manual does say it supports 4GB. I am running on 64bit. I tried looking everywhere, I absolutely couldn't find anything about memory mapping or memory hole or anything that sounds similar.

I remember reading from somewhere someone having same problem, and he found out that the chipset doesn't support 4GB.

You need a 64bit OS to take advantage of that 4gb. If you have one, then run memtest86+ on your ram.

A 6990 would at least saturate a 4x... so yea.. you'd see some big drops in fps between a 16x and 4x. However, 5670... no... probably no change at all.

What kind of 4gb set up do you have? 1x4gb, 2x2gb, 4x1gb? If It's the first, what slot do you have it in? If the 2nd, do you have them in every other slot? On your mobo this would mean they're in matching coloured slots... and not right next to each other.

It's 2x1GB + 2GB. I don't think they are in matching color slots, could this be the problem ?

Also, I tried running memtest off ubuntu live cd. And memtest also detects only about 2.9GB of ram.

Sounds like one of your 1GB sticks isn't working somehow, or a memory hole issue. I tried to find a manual for your board, but since Abit is gone....its almost impossible to find one.
