Battlefield 4 issues! gigabyte 280x Oc windfroced edition

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a gigabyte 280x - Thanks to those who helped me choice that card.

Iv got a issue - Im pretty sure the issue is not caused by the new card but Ill tell you whats going on

With my old 6950s crossfired - I got 35 to 40ish fps in low and 30 to 40ish high - Setting made little to no difference. (Dis baling crossfire seemed to help performance.

I figured my cards wear just on there way out and found this gigabyte 280x for 250$.


Iv wiped out window and did a fresh install.

Iv got the latest video drivers from AMDs site.

Iv tried launching in x86 and x64 - 86x did give a huge jump at first (But it cut my setting down to LOW and I still dropped down to 12fps in some parts of the map)

According you MSI - After burner im only using 30 -40% gpu

My temp is right about 65c ish in game ----40 out of game right now.

I have a 620wat power supply

8350 Fx cpu.

10 Gbs on the board - 1866 ram.

Iv got windows 7 - 64bit - sp1

(im now getting around 35 ish fps) The spikes up and down just aren't as bad as before.

Iv got the hotfixs for the 8350 and windows 7



Anyone got any ideas on what to do?

is your cpu oc'ed? you need to, especially in MP.

you mind running the free version of 3DMark11? use basic>stretched.


third from the list . . .

edit: btw, why 10GB? your system is prolly running in single channel.

I may have fixed the issue friends.

I found a thread some wear that said - turn off - C1E - c6 - Cool and quite - Amd APM in the bois.
I did and tested - MoH war fighter and got 60 fps flat with vsyn
I ran bf4 in 86bit and it was better - 40ish when on ground and 50-60 flying \
Restarted in 64bit - Seemed much faster and cleaner this time
However afterburner and fps are no long showing up in bf4???? Thats weird.
So I cant say forsure what it did but it felt better.

After doing this I did notice my GPU usage went up to between 80-97% swinging.

bring your ram down to 8GB using a pair of sticks. make sure you put them on the right slots (consult manual). oc the cpu to at least 4.5GHz. you can seek help here . . .

stock might work in Single player but would be hard in multiplayer unless mantle works on the 280s.

Yes mantel does work with the 280xs. My card is oced already.

Ill look into ocing my cpu in the morning. I did not think there was much use in ocing my cpu?
I just ran crysis 3 and I got anywhere from 30 to 60fps. I would say I averaged 40 to 50 fps overall - Maxxed setting/ ultra.

both C3 and BF4 are graphically demanding. what i observed, though, they remain smooth even when dipping in the 30s (above 35 fps). once you hit below 30 they become unplayable. i did play BF4 maxed even with a 7950 at stock but my i7 was oc'ed to 4.5GHz and HT on (not using mantle) . . .




that was maxed with 4MSAA 1080. it does go lower in some maps during huge explosion, so cpu/gpu ocs really help. with mantle i play it with the i7 at stock and ht off (basically an i5) and a 290 maxed. this is using 14.3 driver. in DX11 . . . i have to oc my cpu to 4.5GHz.

the 280X will have no problem maxing out BF4 even at stock but it needs help with the other components. fix the ram config and oc the cpu just a tad.

also, adjust your virtual memory to auto in windows. gl!
