GPU is underperforming ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i built a budget gaming rig about a few months ago and now i feel like the GPU is clunky, here's the build : 
B450 M-HDV MOBO AM4 CPU socket 
AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon VEGA Graphics
An 8Gb RAM stick GEIL EVO 2400MHz 
GTX 1060 3Gb GPU Windforce 
WD caviar blue 1Tb 7200RPM 
PSU Smart power 400W 80+ Bronze 

To be exact i'm having issues with a game called Path of Exile, it has a lot of graphic changes -see photo- and when those changes happen i get acute FPS drops from 70 FPS to 25-ish and that's with Vsync deactivated. 
I'd like to know if the problem is in the GPU or some other component is bottlenecking it. 
PS : i have a mediocre screen -RES 1360 * 766 -
PPS : if you have any tips on how to make the rig better please fire away i'm very new to this world.

Run HWinfo64 while you play the game till it stutters, capture screenshots for HWinfo64's readings. Maybe that can show something wrong.

You should be getting more than 70fps at 1360x766 resolution with a GTX1060.

Where is your monitor display cable plugged in to? The back of the motherboard or the back of the graphics card? If it's plugged in to the back of the motherboard it will be running off the integrated vega graphics of the Ryzen 2400G instead of the graphics card. Could explain your performance issues.

the display is in the GPU not in the motherboard i made sure of it 

Is that a single stick of RAM? that's probably why it's underperforming

yes it's a single stick of 8Gb ... i thought it would be enough ..isn't it ?

it's not about capacity, it's about bandwidth, Single Channel RAM will hold your CPU back especially since you're getting 70FPS+, if you enable Vsync you might actually get rid of the FPS drops

That's weird.. if that's the case then maybe it's a problem with the game itself

is there a way to know wether the GPU is good hardware wise by using a software ?

temperature, usage, frequency, even voltages, basically everything
