gpu clock speeds low on less damanding games causing low fps

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
hello everyone, i have the asus 7970 matrix platinum gpu (3gb), for some reason i get 60-90 fps when playing battlefield on ultra and on games like dead island and advanced warfare as my gpu clock goes to 1100 mhz and stays there. But when i play games like minecraft, lol and csgo i get no more than 501 mhz witch results in low fps (doesnt change when settings are lowered) If anyone and everyone could please post a possible fix then please do as im sick on it not performing to it maximum abilities, regards

luke.

See if there is some type of "Force high performance mode" in the AMD drivers. Nvidia has a option to force the GPU to run at the base clock. For instance, putting my 780 in this mode forces it to run at 888MHz in a game. However, it does not force the boost clock which is 1267MHz. It only hits that if it needs it. You can force boost, but, it isn't something I suggest unless you really feel you need to.

The gpu will speed up by itself if the game ever needs it, you are only limitied by your cpu in this case. Minecraft uses java so it's single threaded and inefficient, you need single core performance for increased fps.. but even with the fastest solution with the biggest overclock you will still be limited by the cpu. I have a 4770K at 4.2 and with over 100 mods with alot of stuff loaded near me I can still get down to 50fps sometimes.

Same thing with CS:GO and LoL, they aren't very multithreaded and don't load the gpu up much, its mostly cpu limited.. and in all games if you have vsync on and the gpu can only render up to 60fps or so then that limits the load on the gpu also.

Oh yea, my 4790k/780 drops fps in Minecraft when things are loading around me. It isn't really a GPU thing. My performance is pretty much the same at 1080p or triple screen.


Forcing your GPU to not throttle can help in some games though, especially if it's a game that the GPU doesn't see as demanding. I've gone from 40 - 50 fps in games to a steady 60 fps by forcing the GPU to run at base clock and above. I'm not sure that MC is a game where it would make a huge difference. I don't remember if I forced MC or not.


Look into "RadeonPro". It gives you a lot of the features that are missing in the stock AMD drivers...

i dont have it on no or it would cap it at 60, i get around 40 on lol, mc and csgo. I get less when i lower the settings. But i ran a benchmarker and got a really high score for performance as it runs into high performance mode.
