GTX 690 Fps Problems
I just recently bought an Asus GTX 690 to replace my 6950(x2) crossfire. Everything seemed to work fine with the driver uninstall and the transfer to Nvidia drivers. But I have been having one major problem since I've switched. It really doesn't seem that my fps in games has increased at all. In some cases my fps in games is even lower!
The main concern is my low fps in Guild Wars 2 and Counter Strike:Global Offensive. I average around 125-250 Fps with everything high and AA turned off. This is playable but compared to my friend that runs a 580 and gets constant 250-299(fps max is at 300) there has to be something wrong.
GW2 on the other hand can get as low as 20 fps. I Average around 60 but again. There are cases of people running a single 670 and getting constant 130 fps. I switched to the 304.79 beta Drivers because it increased fps a little for GW2. Note the driver switch did not affect any other games that I have noticed.
When I switched from AMD to Nvidia I did a full driver wipe and reinstalled windows 7.
GPU: Asus GTX 690
CPU: intel 2700k (Sandy bridge) OC'd to 4.5 GHrz
Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
Memory: 12gb duel channel
PSU: Corsair TX850W
Any help or insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
[EDIT]: IN CS:GO I commonly crash after about 10 minutes of playing. I have to hard reset in order to fix the crash.
Are you and your friend playing at the same resolutions? Head over to the Nvidia Control Panel (right-click the desktop) and check out your settings there. Make sure your games are up to date as well, and consider downloading GPU-Z to check that your card is running at the stated specs.
Ty for the quick reply. Any other Theories?
Heat. Run two instances of GPU-Z, one on each core. If the cores are hitting above 80 degrees, it is very likely that the GPUs are reaching their Power Limit and clocking to their default (lower) speeds.
Also, ensure that the system "sees" two GPUs. It could very well be that it is only registering one card. To do this, go into Device Manager and ensure two GTX 690 instances are there.
Finally, go into the NVIDIA Control Panel and click on "Configure SLI, PhysX & Surround". Ensure SLI is set to "Maximize 3D Performance" and PhysX is set to CPU.
The GTX690 is not really the right card for 1080p though...
Have you tried doing a driver wipe? Drive Sweeper does a pretty decent job. I'd check off both ATI and NVIDIA options, while running in safe mode. Then install the latest beta NVIDIA drivers.
Also check in the NVIDIA control panel that there's no v-sync stuff enabled. Maybe Adaptive V-Sync is on by default?
I've read that lowering the shadow detail can have a huge effect on Guild Wars performance, I cannot confirm this as I don't play that specific game, nor have an nVidia card. It could just be unoptimized drivers. You are running the GPU in the primary PCI-E x16?
Thats allot of card for your resolution... wow..
properly wiping out the drivers (or re-doing it as I've seen stuff appear after a second or third scan) would be a good place to start.. But really at your res even 1 core should be able max most/all games..
