GTX560 low fps in older games?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
my GTX 560 shows only 90fps in Quake3
regardless of settings; and gpu load is 3-4%

Power management mode in drivers is set to maximum performance
vsync is sure off

GPU-Z shows that full clocks is used

that's the problem only with old games like Q2/Q3

uhm, isnt the goal anywhere from 30 - 60 fps? So why is 90 bad? Maybe its just limiting it to your refresh rate, because in halo 2 i used to get INSANE mouse lag because my card was TOO fast and just stuttered until i put on meh vsync

What is your refresh rate on your monitor? And im pretty sure that power management has to do with downclocking the card if not used fully. I could be wrong but im sure that whatever your CPU sends to the GPU its going to render to its capability. Old games do this. Cant even run Diable2 on my system because i only get 20-30 fps with like 60 utilization. It sucks

That may be your goal, but it isn't everyones'. I prefer to have 100+ frames in all my FPS games. Especially for something as competitive as Q3.

@OP

There's go to be something going on - low resolution, using an old CFG that cuts out eye-candy, something. Or perhaps just drivers...

background games has no effect
refresh rate on monitor is 60hz, but vsync is forced off
if it is some kind of limitation it is pretty bad, because my old 8800GTS used to show around 1000fps in Q3
