Please help me guys. I am playing a very old game. Burnout Paradise is a old 8 year old racing video game. I have a very powerful and capable computer to run a 8 year old game. I have a MSI R9 280X Twin Frozr 3GB. This card is a beast at running an 8 year old game. When I played Burn out Paradise at 1440p the game was dropping frames below 60fps but was getting above 30fps. This is a weird issue because the GTX 960 has similar performance to the R9 280X, In this video this person has a GTX 960 and is playing Burnout Paradise at 1440p 60fps no problem. Has the exact same settings as me, all max settings. So I assume this is a driver issue with the R9 280X. What drivers do I need to download so Burnout Paradise will play better? Also the audio is messed up too. Burnout Paradise is the only game that is giving me audio problems. I hear a buzzing noise from my monitor speakers whenever I play Burnout Paradise. I know there is nothing wrong with the monitor speakers. My monitor is the Acer H257HU. Here is the video of a person playing Burnout Paradise at 1440p with a GTX 960.

What is your CPU? Also check if you have V-Sync ON.

cpu power saving features enabled? maybe it doesn't load the cpu enough to stay at high clocks the whole time.

In this video this person has no problem with a GTX 960 playing 8 year old burnout paradise game at 1440P 60fps Max settings and antialiasing did not take a hit.

Just for you I will download and test the game. I have 3770K + 290X. Yes GPU is a bit faster but should not made too much difference for this game.

So @ 4K I do drop below 60 fps with R9 290 @ 1150/1500. 4K has ~ 2.2x more pixels then 1440p but 290 is not 2 x faster than 280X. I think you should be getting 60 fps solid with tour setup. If anything see 4AA get you.

Yeah I think this is defintely a driver issue. Amd Radeon Settings keeps crashing. Do I need to install an older driver so Burnout Paradise will play better at 1440p 60fps? What driver is the most stable? I installed the latest driver from amd website and the latest driver is not stable and crashes a lot.

You guys will not believe this bullcrap!! All this time I thought my computer had a R9 280X. It turns out I had a R9 270 all along. The R9 270 is extremely weak and slow graphics card. No wonder it could not handle Burnout Paradise at 1440p. The seller that sold me the computer lied to me and said he put a R9 280X in the computer. I am so fed up now
