I am in a pickle and I do not know what to do, or how to TS this problem further… I hope anyone can shine a light at the next possible steps.
So I bought the above card, Sapphire Radeon 5700 Pulse, to replace my old card, R9 270X, as it was dying and overheating.
I play WoW, both Classic and BFA, and some overwatch and HoTS.
All these games are not too demanding, and I’ve been able to play them (except Overwatch) on max settings with my old card, getting between 30 and 50 FPS
I replaced the card, and I am barely seeing an increase in FPS, in low pop zones it is good, and I DO see over 100 FPS, but in low pop zones its doing the same as my old card? I get between 40 and 60, but not over this much.
I was expecting quite an increase, and I can’t for the life of me, figure out what the problem is, is there a problem, or is simply my other HW too old?
My other HW:
AMD FX-8350 (the CPU is never running on max, always around 40- 50% load, does this matter?)
ASAS MSA99FX pro 2.0 ( The PCIe is 2,0, the card supports 4, does this matter?)
24 GB DDR3 1,6GHz ( I know its not that great, could this be my bottleneck?)
The games and OS are on SSD, and I am playing on a MSA MAG271C
Freesync is enabled.
Any help is very much appreciated !
** I have also removed the old drivers before installing the card.
