Rx600 - FPS question...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had to change the fan on the video card in my sig (the fan acting up was why it was free). Anyhow, since I was putting on a better heatsink / fan, I decided to go ahead and set it to its Turbo option.

Initial testing in CS:S, FPS went from 40-60 and is currently averaging 70-80... do those numbers sound OK for this card? (Thats with high settings and 2x AA.)

I guess considering it was a free upgrade from a FX5200 w/128mb, I can't really complain about any FPS, whether good or bad...

FYI, I have heatskinks on the VRAM, and a copper plate with attached heatsink / fan on the GPU itself. Everything seems cool at the moment...

The RX600 Pro is an Ati Radeon 9600Pro.
The FPS are descent enough to play the game but if they are normal or extremely good is hard to say. Run 3Dmark 03 and tell us your score

An upgrade to an FX5200 is useless since the card you have right now is faster, as seen here:

A better upgrade in the same price range is an upgrade to the newly released Radeon HD2400 cards. They are around 50$, have directx 10 and have Ati's UVD which can leave the decoding of HD content entirely as a job for the GPU. THat way you have directx10 and you can watch 1080P HD content aswell. The CPU in your sig will have a tough nut to crack to do that
Here to show what difference that upgrade will make in technical terms:

No more upgrades until next year sometime...

a constant 75 fps is the desired number for CSS. anything lower than that and you won't recover from recoil as fast. having 75 fps or above gives you a noticeable advantage over people with slower computers.

CSS is a very CPU-dependent game though, and i don't think any video card would dramatically improve your frames. my last computer was a Pentium 4 @ 3.0 with a big money video card and i rarely averaged more than 75 fps in-game. i transferred the video card to my new C2D rig and i average 170 fps outside. the CPU made all the difference in the world.
