780 problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently got the GTX 780 lightning. I upgraded from a 680 SC, and I'm not really seeing a difference. I've been noticing horrible visual lag and have no idea what is going on. I haven't touched any of the settings to overclock it(yet). Is there anyone who can help me with this problem? Are these problems related to me not touching the settings? I was playing battlefield 4 and had to turn it off due to horrible FPS, it was unplayable. I hope someone can help.

Thanks

updated your drivers recently? I'd load up something like afterburner also and see what the card is doing when it's laggy. Card could be throttling so watch the core clock and temperatures.

For ease of testing use a benchmark utility.. Try the heaven valley utility or furmark if you really want to stress it.

If it is throttling then could be due to poor air circulation within your case or a poorly applied heat sink which is an RMA issue unfortunately unless you want to invalidate the warranty to fix it yourself!

I'd definitely look at making sure the drivers are up-to-date. I noticed a big boost (playing at 1440p) moving from a 680 to a 780. On that note, Do Not use the BF4 beta (or any new program, beta or not!) as a test program - it's not optimized yet and has a number of technical issues yet that are still being sorted out.
