I have a radeon 7950 twin frozr iii and i get choppy fps in games i shouldn't be getting low fps on

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
so i bought this video card the march of this year and its been running everything fine

however recently i've been getting choppy fps in games where it shouldn't. i play planetside 2 with everything on high however when i run games like farcry 3 or Counter strike global offensive and other games my fps becomes choppy i even get choppy fps on games like OSU where its not demanding what-so-ever. i've tried re-installing older ati but nothing works so i'm at a lost right now and i dont know what to do

here are my pc specs

Specs
CPU: intel 3770k
Mobo: Maximus v Formula
GPU: MSI Radeon 7950 twin frozr iii (it has the 7970 pcb however)
RAM: Kingston HyperX Red 8gb (2x4)
CPU COOLER: Hyper 212
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer Series 750w

everything is running stock nothing is overclocked

Do you have vsync on? If not then it should be and is probably the cause of your choppiness. Enabling triple buffering can help in some games too.

I also wonder if 750w psu is enough... should be but close especially if overclocking (which you said it wasnt) but still... the 7950 is pretty much over clocked... so... hmm

like i can have everything turned down to low bwith vsync turned off but like i play planetside 2 and it runs smooth but when i play something like counter strike GO or other games it gets so choppy which doesn't make sense
post #7 of 22
Define choppy, is it actually skipping noticeably or is the FPS just low? And when it is "choppy", can you tell us the GPU/CPU usage along with ram usage? MSI afterburner has OnScreenDisplay that can tell you all that stuff in real time.

I find it extremely helpful in situations like this, you gotta start troubleshooting somewhere right?

If it is only specific games...can you try and reinstall them to see what happens?

Its your CPU, check your bios to make sure you turn off intel SPEEDSTEP and CE1. This way your cpu wont downclock itself to like 1.5ghz, when it thinks the program doesnt demand that much cpu power. You should be good to go after that. PS. just keep in mind that when you disable speedstep, your cpu will run at a constant 3.5ghz @ all times. So your power consumption will be a little higher, and cpu will run a little hotter.

you can also google > speedstep stutter games to find more info.

i just tried doing this and it didn't seem to help at all cu slie it doesn't make sense when i play planetside 2 ( a far more demanding game) it runs fine but when i play counter strike it craps out

what i mean by choppy is that the frames stutter i have tried reinstalling the individual games and it didn't seem to work at all
