Diablo® III

Low FPS with a 7970

OS: Windows 7 64bit
MB: Gigabyte - GA-890XA-UD3
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.2Ghz O.C.@ 3.6Ghz
GPU: 7970 925/1375, O.C. to 1025/1500

to the point:

upgraded from a 5950 and basically saw little to no FPS improvement in this and PoE, games like Crysis and far cry showed great improvements. I'ved tried everything from running at stock, to Overclocking everything, tweaking settings in CCC, nothing seems to work..

Benchmarks like Unengine Heaven went from 10 fps to 50-60

all BIOS, SSD, and GPU drivers are up to date

here's a SS of me killing Azmodan, was about 17-30 FPS the whole fight, and keep in mind this isnt even fullscreen !


any tips / questions appreciated, and notice 29% CPU usage, and 7% in the GPU, like wtf ?..

oh and my settings in CCC are set to default...
