enable gpu scaling

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i decided to see just what my 4890 would do last night, so i maxed out cod4
(i know it does not take much to do that) aax4,afx16, tri textures and extra
no vsnyc.
next i went into the card turned the fan to 45% ran the ccc auto tune
went to 1000 for a moment then back to 990/1120.
next i went and turned the aa to x4, af to x16 the works if i could turn it up i did.
i cap my fps in this game at 125 (could never hold this with my 3870 with all this on) and it never came off that, then i set it to fpsmax-0 and got anywhere from 125-400 but never more than 420 or so, mostly stayed around 125-200.
now i said to myself- self, what else can i do, and i found gpu scaling so i enabled it and love it, but i really dont understand what it is doing, (i have a idea ,thats it).
will you kind folks please educate me on this?????

thanks

p.s. i already know my typing sucks thanks in advance of the typing patrol

GPU Scaling just scales the image to the size of the display. Say for example you played a game at 1920x1080 and you monitor was 1920x1200 you could have the GPU scale it to fill the panel. If you want to see what else you can do goto CCC>3D deselect all the "Use application setting", put everything to 16x or Quality and use "edge detect" AA - that should see your FPS drop below 100

That option corresponds to how your display handles non-native resolutions. LCDs generally stretch out anything that is lower than their native resolution; play an old 800x600 game and the display will stretch it to its native resolution.
When you use the GPU scaling option, it allows your display to use non-native resolutions without stretching the image. GPU scaling has three sub options you can use; centered timings which will center the image on your display while maintaining the original resolution of the image (black bars appear around the image to "fill out" the rest of the display), mantain aspect ratio which will strecth out the image but maintain its original aspect ratio, and scale image to full panel size which will strecth out the image to fit your display.

Just curious, on an MSI 7950 (twin frozr - OC Edition with "Boost"), what kind of average framerates (fps) should I be getting in most games? Should it be as low as 40-45 fps with the settings only set to medium or medium-high quality? I think there is something wrong with my card due to recent crashes and other performance issues.

Holey ****, OC Edition with "Boost"?!?! You should be at least getting 200 BAJILLION FPS Per Millisecond
