My System Specs

Default Asus 5870 V2 Performance Drop

a few days ago i ran some benchmarks on dirt2 i got around 89 fps average maxed out at 1080p i also ran the heaven benchmark maxed at 1080p also i got around 44fps average. i installed smartdoctor and overclocked more briefly then i uninstalled it. after that i now get under 70fps on dirt2 and under 20 on the heaven benchmark.

I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the catalyst drivers but it didn't help, were the first benchmark numbers just a fluke or did i do something to make fps go down?

oh i also did the resident evil benchmarks and now they are nowhere near where they were before.

5870 is clocked at 955/1260 using ccc.

It's throttling either due to insufficient voltage, power or something else.

Try to run the card at stock clocks and see how it goes.

cpu/gpu z says the same about the clocks? if they're the same then clean out (old?) drivers and try the latest cats
