r5770 HAWK poor performance

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I recently upgraded my system and here are my specs:

2x r5770 HAWK
Phenom II x4 3.2Ghz
8Gb 1600mhz ram
650w psu
Windows 7 64 bit

The problem is that I get 20~30 fps in crysis warhead @ 1920x1080, high settings (not very high) and 20~25 fps in GTA IV @ 1920x1080 and most settings pretty low. According to other r5770 owners, one card alone should be able to get better results than that. What is wrong? I checked to make sure that my onboard video was off and all that, CCC is the newest version and the crossfire box is checked. Any ideas?

I just removed 1 of the cards to see if there was a performance drop. No, there wasn't. This is what is troubling me. After removing the one card I restarted WARHEAD and it ran just the same. I also looked up some of the reviewer's benchmarks:

http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid...e=expert&pid=6

Again, these are with just a single GPU. I have two.

Welp. Sorry didn't realize you had 2 cards. Is the crossfire bridge connected?

Try the lowest possible setting for the game. If your frames don't go up you might have problems will drivers. When I got my 5770 I was recommended to use 10.10e hotfix. Also editing your signature rig would be helpful
