Why are the FPS scores so low?
« on: January 10, 2014, 12:52:53 pm »
i have an AMD8350, on a Giggabyte990 board. 16g, 240G SSD, Win7, i HAD a MSI 560ti 448 core TwinFrozrIII card. i swapped out for a MSI 760HAWK. i only get 10FPS more than with the old card.  my friend has just a 760 GAMING version and he runs the same game at MAX settings and get 120FPS, i'm on med settings and get 55FPS

i updated all the driver's i could, clean driver install for the card. i ran cinebench and it also confirms that the scores are low. i even was able to have the card RMA'd, and no change.

my Windows Experience score is all 7.9 except the harddrive score is 7.2?

ideas?

    well that thread says that it is a good chip, not the best, ~90% I7. so what do you mean then?

    they say it's a good chip except for gaming.

    well gaming is mostly GPU, and friends have the same chip but their system out performs mine with inferior video cards is my problem. i am not building a particle accelerator, but the FPS should be much higher than what i get

    I'll agree, you should be getting more than 10 fps.  is there some chipset driver update you might need? Not for the gpu but for the mobo? Also, can you monitor CPU and memory % while in use?  Are your memory sticks paired correctly? I'd check all that too.

    i just installed the newest driver for the MOBO last night, CPU is at around 40% and memory is at 35% while gaming. both memory sticks were bought as a kit in one package, i swapped them back and forth and from one slot to the next. no changes

    I'd post/start a thread on a site dedicated to that motherboard and see what the others say.
