  1. R9 390 bottlenecked

    I'm sure it has to be some power saving feature that i cant get my hands on
  2. R9 390 bottlenecked

    No, my CPU is arround 80% usage when playing games, haven't ocd anything, I don't have background tasks that are resource draining ( only fraps ). Not sure about PCi/BCLK frequencies, as my mobo options are at default, no other devices in my pcie but my gpu, no dummy or testing pc, an my card never goes above 70 degrees celcius. and finally, i'm mad at people who didn't read the post and recommended me to uninstall windows (when i said i didnt want to) and that cinebench is a bad benchmark tool, which completely misses my point. ill check out the bclk and pci frequencies.
  3. R9 390 bottlenecked

    Yea, my fps always stays in the same range, no matter the res or quality
  4. R9 390 bottlenecked

    No, 1010 Mhz GPU clock, 1500Mhz MEM clock. 75Hz freesync monitor and I didnt use vsync so my fps was fully uncapped.
  5. R9 390 bottlenecked

    I wrote that I do not want to reinstall windows because it is too much of a lengthy process. Otherwise please point out any posts that "helped me" because I only see people that say that cinebench is a bad GPU testing tool; I know, it just proves my point about the fps boundaries.
  6. R9 390 bottlenecked

    it does. an i5 is capable of 300fps csgo, 210fps tops is terrible, especially at 720p
  7. R9 390 bottlenecked

    trying to piss me off. yeah.
  8. R9 390 bottlenecked

    "in games such as Far Cry 4 where I dip in the low 50s and mid 40s (which is where my freesync range goes to shit) I cannot dip the settings to get a smooth frame rate"
  9. R9 390 bottlenecked

    yes, i know that. but its not just cinebench ffs, its every game i have. even csgo, i can run that at 720p, lowest settings and still get the exact framerate of 1080p max
  10. R9 390 bottlenecked

    1080p
  11. R9 390 bottlenecked

    thats not the point wtf. My problem with cinebench is that because for some reasin my fps are capped between a point to a point, i just can't get higher fps.
  12. R9 390 bottlenecked

    tried it first but then used 3dmark so pls stfu. My problem with cinebench is that because for some reasin my fps are capped between a point to a point, i just can't get higher fps.
  13. R9 390 bottlenecked

    I have win 10 btw, latest update
  14. R9 390 bottlenecked

    I have an R9 390, and the current experience is terrible. Although 3DMark says that my GPU is adequate for a 390, Cinebench does not because it proves 96 fps when my card should reach 130; I know the cause, but not the solution. Some stutter that is fixed with third party applications, but there is a problem that no one seems to know the answer to: regardless of resolution or settings, I never, NEVER get better or worse FPS. Sounds good, but it isn't because in games such as Far Cry 4 where I dip in the low 50s and mid 40s (which is where my freesync range goes to shit) I cannot dip the settings to get a smooth frame rate. I have an i5 6500, which does NOT bottleneck a 390, 1x8 GB RAM, a Corsair RM650x and good thermals. No it is not due to lack of optimization in games, but a problem with the driver of my card, some sort of power saving feature I can't find. No power save features are turned on in the AMD drivers, or windows C. Panel, the PCI-E slot in C. Panel does not have any power saving features on, and my PSU should be enough. No, I don't use V-Sync, and the wattage profile in the AMD driver is set to 50+, and "Ultra Power Saving" or whatever option is turned off in a third party app. the answer is not obvious, I am sure of that, so I want someone with experience on this. I've tried: Different drivers Downloading a gaming bios for my 390 Re seating RAM Re seating the GPU Using two power cables, not a split 8+6 Overclocking (which causes artifacts) Turning it off and back on again Turning off freesync Updating MOBO Bios Latest Intel driver Uninstalled old drivers Resetting CMOS I can't switch my PCI-E slot to the bottom one since my card is too long, lol. Anybody with similar experiences both on AMD or NVidia that fixed this problem by fiddling with the BIOS or windows settings (I have an Asus mobo btw), but does not require reinstalling windows, or formatting my HDD and SSD (because fuck that shit).
  15. R9 390 under performing. HELP!

    Yes I have, I've said.
