Do you feel your rx 460 is underperforming?

Jump to solution

Whenever I see gpu benchmarks for the rx 460 it lists crazy stuff like that it can run overwatch at 90 fps on high settings 100% render scale when  mine can barely break 100 fps during gameplay on low settings and on 890p(83% render scale) and my cpu is not bottlenecking my rx 460 4gb.

On 1080p(100% render scale) it struggles to attain 70fps and spikes from 50-80

overwatch doesnt use much vram, only 500mb is being used on all low.

Makes me sad because I have a 144hz monitor that is not even being utilized even on the lowest visual settings of a game that is not very gpu intensive.

another question: Would upgrading to the rx 470(The 480 is too big for my case) help me attain 144+ fps on 1080p on all low visual settings? Assume I use an amd fx 8300 processor.

why would I not want to play 120 fps when I invested in an 120hz monitor?

I am not mental rebooting that. My boolean quantum logic processors are telling me that I am stupid.

That's in line with Techspot's review, Overwatch is quite graphically intensive once you apply details IF you want 144fps.

Depending on some graphic settings and mental reboots, there may be a way to increase your playing experience. Notice I said 'experience'...not FPS.

Assuming you have your Power Limit and computer power plan set for gaming.

Use vert sync. In the Radeon control panel and in the game settings.

Set your global settings like this:

You must go in to "Global Overdrive" to change the "Power Limit" to +20 (all the way to the right)...and click the 'apply' button that appears after you make a change.

Set your in-game settings to 'detect' and use those settings except for the resolution...change that. Then gradually up the game settings till it's not playable.

Some info > AMD graphics performance
