Hi all... Recently got an AMD FX-8350, Gigabyte HD 7970 Ghz ed, 16gb Kingston Predator HyperX, Khuler 920 etc etc... I thought I would get decent benchmark scores with this setup, but no. I see core I5s with older graphic cards destroying my score! Below are some pics, any advice would be geratly appreciated. I know the 7970 is barely overclockable, but even at stock I bel.ieve I should be getting better scores than what I have

This BM


With these settings









Why so low :confused::(

Updating the driver would be a good start. From what I can see you're using an older version before a lot of performance improvements were made. 13.6 beta is the latest I believe.

I see your max FPS is 65.4 on the first picture, that seems normal to me.
I have a 7850 and I get 63.7 and a mate has a Titan and gets 68.

This is with vsync turned on - try it without?

Just for reference as i'm clueless when it comes to AMD.

This is my HTPC, stock 2600k, 7970 ghz (1050/6000)

Seems suspect. A Titan should be scoring wayyyy higher than that.
