Not getting correct performance HD6950 Please help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Here is my rig

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Mobo: M4A785TD-V EVO
Video card:HIS HD6950
Memory: 8gig DDR3 1600

I ran several benchmarks and I am not getting the performance I should be from this set up.

For example with this same setup using my MSI5770 I was getting around 40-60FPS on the Resident Evil 2 benchmark.

When I tried it with my new card the 6950 I'm getting the same performance!!??!!?!

I looked up youtube videos and people with similar even slower setups with the same card are getting 100-130FPS on the ResEvil2 benchmark?

What gives?

Here is a pic of my GPU-Z and CPU-Z and helps is greatly appreciated.

have you tried an older set of drivers or the latest beta? my 6870 didn't work with the latest stable, i had to roll back.

No I have only tried with the latest drivers. Where would I find the older drivers?

Resident Evil 2? Surely you mean 5.

Disable Vsync. Problem solved.

Use 12.2 drivers.

You might want to tighten your memory timings (9-9-9-24 mabey?) and switch to ganged mode to speed up your memory too.

Edit: I'm running the 6950 with the 12.1 Drivers and I get 82.1 in the fixed test and 121.6 on the other with MAX settings
also running stock except for the 6950 shader unlocked. My mem is @ 7-8-7-24 BTW.

Yeah probably a driver issue, generally nothing's wrong with the actual chip, just the software/drivers on the computer. Also, you need to remove your older driver completely, including the registry changes that it made. There's methods for that.

Okay so I flashed my BIOS, set the memory timings to 9-9-9-24. Removed the drivers did driversweeper, and reinstalled drivers. Still no performance difference.

Also vsync is off in the benchmark settings.

Any other suggestions?
