Problems with new card.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,
I just got my XFX R9 270X after reading a few positive reviews about it and I was hoping it would bring me more performance but I tried it on a few games (mostly steam games) and a few unity games and I noticed no change in FPS so I ran Unigine and I got a lower score on Ultra then my old 6870! The drivers were wiped when I installed the card and 14.3 beta was installed so did I miss anything which would cause the card not to perform as well as it should be?
PS. I got a higher Cinebench mark than my 6870 and in 3Dmark on Firestrike I barely got a difference in my results under my graphics mark...
Help me please D=
(I have to say that the fans and the temps on this card are a lot lower and quieter than my 6870 which I am happy about)

do you mind running 3DMark11 not Firestrike?

Btw, did you bench the 6870 using 14.3?

a 270X is an equivalent of a 7870 and this is what you should be getting in 3DMark11 . . .

i had a 6870 and my highest graphics score i recall was 4500.

It may be my 6350 causing an issue because I noticed that my Physics scores are always lower and in games like FarCry 3 my FPS did increase but whenever any particles like smoke appear it drops to about 25~ but my CPU/GPU load are both not at 100%, GPU sits at around 80% while the CPU when standing still is like 40-50%.
Why is my CPU doing this Q.Q
