GTX 760 lacking firepower?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I understand it's only a 760, but I can't even run BF4 on high @1080p without dipping into the 50s, sometimes high 40s. Is my sig rig bottle necking my card? CAN'T BE! But upgraded from a GTX 480 and I'm not seeing too much of a increase, only ALOT quieter. Tried a modded bios, can't do much more than +50 on core and +350 on ram for the 760 @ 1.212v

I've had nothing but problems with the newest 335.23 drivers so i'm going back to 334.89. What are the best drivers right now in terms of performance?

Current settings. I'm pulling my hair out here, any more advice? Anymore tweeks I can try?

Err maybe it's a CPU bottleneck

What's your GPU use level in GPU-z, is it close to 90-100%?

GTX 750 Ti and GTX 660 is about as fast as a GTX 480, so that is odd.

You should try showing the CPU graph and GPU graph at the same time and correlate ("match") the time of the GPU hitting 0% use to the CPU usage. If the PCU is at 100% and the GPU is at 0-30% then you have a CPU bottleneck.

I'll load up BF4 and give it a go

it prolly is that thuban,

but my question is-

Are you spending too much time worrying about your FPS??? You're running a 60Hz monitor. A constant 50fps would be BEST CASE SCENARIO!!!

If your frame rate goes 100+ it'll start to tare

I notice a difference between 60 and 100 on this monitor. How smooth the mouse moves. The main reason why I don't use vsync.

I can feel the dips into the 50s and 40s.

How would a 6core 3.8ghz could bottle a midrange card!?

Do you have SSAO/HBAO enabled? Level of AA and AF?
The GTX 760 isn't a huge upgrade from the 480. It saves power, runs cooler, and is quieter. The performance increase is pretty minimal for most games, especially once you take into consideration the overclocking potential of both cards.

The CPU maybe an issue, but I'm not sure. The 760 is a good card for sure, but my gtx 780 even dips into the 50's on a full 64p server @ max settings and 1920x1200... and the 780 has double the cores of the 760. Maybe you are expecting too much out of it.

It's without a doubt a cpu issue. 760 can easily handle BF4 @ 1080p on ultra.
