Low FPS on AMD 7970?

#1XxTwisted26xXPosted 9/17/2013 10:18:39 AM
I would have thought getting this awesome GPU would let me max the graphics for this game Guild Wars 2 and Total War Rome 2. THe auto detect sets me at medium graphics. Is this normal? And if I set the graphics to max I shoot down to 20-30.

Computer Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P

Well, I know that the i5 3350P isn't quite as good as the 3570K, but it is close.

That being said, Guild Wars 2 is extremely CPU bound. That might be why you are having framerate issues.

Rome 2 runs like crap on everything at the moment.

Really? The same is said about other MMOs too. Gah I should have bought a better CPU

Oh hey! I think youre the one who helped me put my PC together a few months back! But yeah I really like the game but the stuttering during the main menu and low graphics are kind of a turn off. :(

That game needs a few optimization patches, but yeah, it's a normal thing for MMOs to be CPU bound. :p
