Firstly, I'd like to apologize for the longevity of this post.
I have a problem. I'm currently playing Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Performance wasn't great but it was playable, so I decided to overclock my GPU. I spent a few hours tweaking settings until I got an impressive score on Geekbench 4's Compute Benchmark, so I restarted my PC, ran the test again and the score was around the same. Being satisfied I ran Rise of the Tomb Raider and began the benchmark.
The FPS was EXACTLY the same as before the OC. So I closed RotTR and ran Geekbench again, only to see that the score was the same as before the OC too. I opened MSI Afterburner and checked to see if the settings were the same, and they were and I now do not know why the benchmark scores for RotTR and Geekbench were the same as before the OC.
I think it might have something to do with some sort of OCP (Over - Current Protection).
Here are some numbers:
CPU: Intel Core i3 4150 @3.5Ghz
GPU: Amd Radeon R7 250x 1GB MSI Edition
RAM: Ballistix Sports 8GB DDR3 @1600 Mhz
Motherboard: MSI H81M-P33
PSU: Corsair VS450
Monitor 1: Dell SE2416H (1080p)
Monitor 2: Philips 2005 1280x1024 (I don't really know what it is for sure.)
Geekbench Score before OC: 48098
Geekbench Score after OC: 57591 (used to be 58379 but was unstable so lowered OC)
RotTR score before OC: 30.27
RotTR score after OC: 30.65
Geekbench score after RotTR benchmark: 48110
