All of a sudden low FPS! Why?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok something really interesting just happened I lost about half of my usual performance I get in games all under the same settings,how is that possible? Let me try and give you an example lets take the game War-Thunder I have been getting 60+ fps fully maxed-out since I downloaded it,today out of nowhere Iam at 25-30 fps with the same settings! How and why?....I haven't changed anything in my overclock everything remains the same,is this typical behavior on maybe Amds part driver updates or something? Can they do something like that and force you to go out and buy new video cards?!....What should I do? Iam using driver version 13.4 crossfired 6970s gaming at 3840x1080 resolution Thanks for any input on this its really bugging me:thumb:

Did you update drivers recently? Did you make sure crossfire is still enabled? What's your GPU usage like?

Yeah i was affraid thats what ud say! Lol.sometimes the drivers are a nightmare to deal with, ive had times it took me days to get things up and running correctly.,but heres something strange id like to point out it seems like only a few games took a hit, metro last light is running like a beast well over 100fps! You cant say wings of pray is a more graphic dependent game like metro but i lost tons of fps at that game for some reason. It went from 140fps to 30fps thats a huge hit!
