    i have a problem with my msi r9 390

    aromaticmelanie

      i have a problem where my gpu a msi r9 390 has really inconsistent gpu load when playing games wich cause fps drops  and unplayable performance in some cases. Some can help?f for example battlefield 4, i get almost the same fps on low or ultra seeting and this card its supose to run bf4 on ultra like 100+fps and i get like 70 and dropping into the 40s HEEELP

          Are you using MSI Afterburner to monitor GPU usage? If so, please try enabling Unified GPU Usage Monitoring.

            Well, it's the Crimson drivers. These drops are happening to me too and many others in a lot of games. I have same drops in BF4, amongst other games, which Catalyst driver didn't have. I've tried at least 20 different things but it looks like there's no fix.

             

            Just install Catalyst 15.11.1 again if you wanna enjoy your 390 without these crappy drops and maybe just MAYBE they'll fix this mess in the next Crimson.

              Hii

               

              HII TO ALL WHO ARE HAVING THIS TWO PROBLEMS

              I HAVE GOT THE SOLUTIONS FOR BOTH OF IT

               

              As you might have noticed lot of people with the R9 390 are complaining to this problems

              The first and easy one is with the MSI Afterburner

              It shows that the gpu load is down and up or we call it the card has spikes going form 100% to down 0% and so on

              This problem is solved by going to the MSI Afterburner settings

              and check the box for ENABLE UNIFIED GPU USAGE MONITORING

              NOW YOU WILL SEE THE REAL GPU LOAD

               

              THE NEXT THING WHAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU OR DONT HAVE TO BE

              IS THAT YOU WILL NOW SEE THAT YOU HAVE GPU LOAD AT LIKE 55%

              DEPANDING ON THE GAME YOU ARE MAYBE A BIT MORE A BIT LESS

               

              THIS IS NOT A CPU BOTTLENECK

              I HAVE THE i3 4130 and the R9 390 GIGABYTE AND HAD THIS PROBLEM

              THAT ALL BENCHMARKS ARE GIVING ME 100% IF GPU LOAD

              AND THE BENCHMARKS ARE GIVING ME THE RESULT AS IT SHOULD BE FOR

              THE R9 390 IN HEAVEN OR VALLEY

               

              BUT GAMES ARE JUST LIKE 50% GPU LOAD

               

              THIS IS NOT AN DRIVER ISSUE OR A BAD GPU OR LIKE I SAID A BOTTLENECK BY THE CPU

              YOU JUST GO TO THE SETTINGS OF THE NEW CRIMSON DRIVER

              OR EVAN AN OLD CATALYST CONTROL CENTER

              AND FIND THE SETTING OF ANTI ALIASING METHOD AND SET IT TO ADAPTIVE

               

              THATS IT...NOW YOU WILL SEE YOUR GPU WILL BE FULLY USED..

              IF YOU SET THE METHOD TO SUPERSAMPLING THE GPU WILL ALWAYS BE USED TO 100%

              BUT YOU WILL LOSE ON THE FPS..

               

              BUT IF YOU JUST SET IT TO ADAPTIVE...YOU WILL GET THE GPU LIKE IN BETWEEN 80 AND UP TO 100% USED

              BUT WILL NOT BE LOOSING ON THE FRAMES

              AND OF COURSE THE SETTINGS IN THE GAME YOU PLAY ITSELF DEPENDS IF IT NOW WILL BE LIKE ALL TIME 100%

              OR IF YOU WILL GET MORE FPS BUT HAVE IT GOING FROM 80% TO 100%

               

              TRY IT

              IT WILL WORK

              NO BAD GPU

              NO BOTTLENECK

              JUST SOME GPU SETTINGS

              NOTHING MORE

               

              GOOD GAMING AND GOOD LUCK
