My 1090t didn't bottleneck my 6950 and that's only .2ghz faster. I was getting around 45-50 in crysis 2 with the high res and dx11 with very rare slumps to 25-35 which is still higher than his average. Would 200 MHz affect this? This was with the single 6950 btw.


In short I don't think 200mhz would screw the frames that hard but I could be wrong, I think it's more likely the driver uninstallation problem. Try a fresh install of the os if possible.

That's what I said I wasn't so sure, because I'm not very familiar with the AMD series CPUs and their performance in video games at stock clocks with such a high powered GPU.

I wasnt dissing your idea I was just confused because I figure you may know more than me and thus may know something I didn't. I honestly believe its a driver issue though just from what I experienced with my 6950 single card.

I could reinstall my os, although I'd rather leave that for now and see what else I could possibly try. I also think it could be drivers, as add/remove always tend to leave registeries behind, I just never got around to installing an uninstall program. I have a lot of course work that relies on correct folder structure (I'm a web design student) so I'd hate to have to sort through it all yet again (I only did it 2 months ago tongue.gif) but I will if no other options come up.

I do too believe it is a driver issue. Most if not all people do a reformat when they install a new graphics card, because it's known to cause lots of performance issues and issues in general if you don't sometimes, which in OP's case is what's happening.

OP, let's do the following.

1. Uninstall CCC FULLY, even any cap programs you have (if at any time you had multi GPUs).

2. Also fully uninstall any GPU monitoring programs (MSI AB, Trixx, etc).

3. Restart.

4. Download Driver Sweeper and remove any previous traces of left over library files from AMD.

5. Install your desired AMD driver version.

6. Restart.

Let us know how it goes.

Ok thanks I'll do this right now and report back asap. Driver Sweeper was the program I forgot to install! Ace tool.

I have completely uninstalled the gpu monitoring programs, drivers, restarted, ran driver sweeper, restarted then reinstalled my drivers once more. I reran unigine and this is what i got:

700

A slight improvement, but not much at all. I'm yet to try a game though just thought I'd post this.

edit: It has without a doubt fixed the stuttering I was getting in Unigine! I had loads of stuttering before and now none. I have ran a second test, although now it has averaged out lower than the one above:

700
