HELP! GTX 1060 Underperforming!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok so I have had this rig for a while, and yesterday reinstalled Windows 10 on a different hard drive because the one that was in my rig was super old. But after a day of getting Battlefront 2 downloaded, I have to be at Low settings and 25% resolution scale to achieve 60 or so FPS. I don't know what the issue is, because I was able to play the game at Ultra settings and still get 75+ FPS with hardly any dips. I tried using MSI Afterburner to overclock my GPU, but it still isn't doing anything. I used MSI Kombustor to check and see how many FPS I was getting in the stress test and was only getting on average 16 FPS and on occasion getting 18 FPS. It also said that only 300MB of VRam was being used out of 3GB, and before I did the HDD switch, I normally got 110+ FPS and it was using about 2.5GB of the VRam. Is there any way I could fix this? I'm just so confused.

 

Also here are my specs:

 

FX-6300 ~ 3.5GHz

GA-880GM-USB3 Gigabyte Motherboard

8GB Corsair XMS3 1600MHz DDR3 RAM

600W OCZ PSU

Gigabyte GTX 1060 OC 3GB

120GB HDD (For OS)

500GB HDD (For games)

It's possibly could be your CPU, it's 6 slow cores may just not be capable of keeping up with that 1060.

No I don't think so. I've never had this issue before UNTIL today. I'm completely lost as of now.

... have you re-enabled windows game mode, or software optimization(s)? What is the speed of your HDD versus your old one?

Windows Game Mode is enabled, I have pretty much every software optimization programs I can think of, and I'm almost positive it's 7200RPMs.

Wrong it's 5400RPMs

That could be it, but it is hard to tell for sure... I simply don't have the expertise beyond this point.

Did you let Windows go through its update process?

Latest version is 1709, Build 10.0.15254.313 (?).

 

Also, are all your motherboard, and chipset drivers downloaded and installed?

Gigabyte doesn't have official drivers for Windows 10, but Windows 8.1 (and *some* Windows 7) drivers are usually compatible with Windows 10 as well.

I'll have to check on windows update. I turned it off because I hate windows but if that's the issue then I'll fix it. And I checked and it seems all the drivers are installed

It's still doing the same thing even after updating. I'll figure it out later.

Boi NVIDIA has much better performance and a cheaper price than AMD (Yes AMD is good but I prefer NVIDIA GPUs over AMD) The 6GB GTX 1060 has a 6% performance increase over the RX 580 8GB. It's all peripherals.

But the one you have is 3GB version, am I right? :v 
 

Just in case, try to wipe your video drivers with DDU.
Also, did you select for the application to use dedicated graphics card in NVIDIA Control Panel?
