My machine is as it follows:
Processor: Water Cooled FX 8350 OCed 4.4GHz
RAM: 16GB 1866MHz RAM
Storage: Two SSD 1TB Samsung Evo 840
Power Supply: Thermaltake Smart 850W
Graphics: R9 290 XFX Black Edition OCed to 1150/1500
Motherboard: MSI 990FXA-GD80
And another crapload of stuff and peripherals
Now, in many cpu physics test, like 3Dmark and catzilla, my processor find itself drawn to the ground, pulling only 15 FPS on the catzilla physics test, while all others test are fine at 80-100 FPS, it's just the CPU Physics test.
Also, this video card is capable of moving battlefield 4 at a solid 90-100 FPS with deeps min FPS of 65-70 FPS and max of 200 FPS, but when I play MMO Games I find the performance very laughable.
World of Warcraft is my preferred MMO and I get 40 FPS on Shrine of the seven stars, and even deeps to 25 FPS in 40 man World raids... No need to say the graphics in these kind of games are nothing special, is all this because of my processor? Or it happen with intel processors too? Or is it just the game that's horribly coded?
Also, MOBAs like Smite runs 10 times worse than Battlefield 4, considering they have 100 times worse graphics its quite shocking, smite runs at 150 FPS Cap at the beginning and in the middle of intense fights it can drop to 40 FPS.
These games use only 10-15% of my GPU, I checked it on GPU-Z, GOU usage stay really low, is this my processor fault, DirectX ? Wth is wrong!!!
PD: I already changed OS, Clean format from Windows 7 to Windows 8 x64 that I'm right now, updated drivers, I'm on the latest catalyst beta, temps are super fine,GPU VRMs never exceed 86c after 3 hours of BF4, I got awesome airflow and 7 fans, GPU Core Temps never exceed 82c, and I got all power saving features off from the bios, CPU temps are 45c after 1 hour of prime95, OC is rock Stable, causing no Issue and I got my RAM cooled by a RAM Fan, plus I got a spot cool on the CPU VRMs that btw never exceed 65c with 1.49v loads, believe me, I got no throttling issues,
But I still don't know what to do! Wy these games runs like garbage while all others games like Battlefied 4, Crysis 3 Metro/last light all run fine.
You can add Cod ghost to the list of games that run horrible, but I'm not quite sure if it's because of my PC or more because the game is just bad.
