New RTX 2060 heavily underperforming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, 

 

Before i start this is my current desktop specs:

GPU: Msi ventus RTX 2060

CPU: Ryzen 5 1600

MB: MSI Tomahawk b350 

Ram: Single 8 gb ddr4 ram stick @2400mhz

PSU: Evga 550W B3

Storage: 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD

 

Yesterday I received my new GPU and i installed it into my pc straight away. But when I went to test the fps with some games I was really underwhelmed. My GPU could barely hit 60 fps in games like battlefield 1, sea of thieves, call of duty modern warfere on ultra settings. Some times it the fps would jump to 80-100 fps but this was rare, most of the times it stayed between 50-60 fps. I also tried to play some games on low settings but the fps didnt increase much from that, I get 80-90 fps in battlefield 1 on low settings. My previous GPU was a 1050Ti and I would assume that a RTX 2060 would run much better than that, but right now it seems like this is not the case. Am I not supossed to get much more fps with the current GPU i have (like 100fps+ in games like battlefield 1 on ultra settings)? Did I maybe receive a faulty GPU? The fps I'm getting is just not right for a RTX 2060, if anyone has any ideas on this matter please do share. Thank you.

Is your R5 1600 running at stock speed? Also only one RAM stick with pretty low speed isn't a good idea since Ryzen likes fast dual channel RAM. Faster dual channel RAM and overclocking could help. Your CPU might be bottlenecking now.

 

EDIT: Did you run DDU and remove old drivers before installing new drivers for the RTX 2060?

Yes everything is running on stock. Yes I uninstalled my old drivers before installing my new ones. So do you recon that my ram is the problem? Will my fps increase if I buy a dual kit 16gb ram @3000mhz?

I'd say its a combination of RAM, and CPU.  I have a R5 3600, 16gb ram @ 3200, and a MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z.  I consistently get around 100-120 FPS on COD: Modern Warfare, with all settings maxed out, but no Ray-tracing. Only other thing I could think of is some severe thermal throttling, how's your temps?

I dont think its underperforming because of my temps. Because my tempratures are always around 40 degrees celcius.

Look at your CPU usage then. MW4 is pretty hard on the CPU.

I suspect that you will get a very nice performance boost if you get +3000Mhz dual channel RAM with low latency. Maybe 15-30% boost in CPU bounded scenarios. Also you could try overclocking your R5 1600 to something like 4,0Ghz. I don't know very much about overclocking Ryzens or picking up correct RAM since I've been always using intel but doing these should definitely help you getting higher framerates.
