    amd r9 265x


      My gpu... has a really huge issue.


      It all started when AMD Gaming Evolved Control Center said i had drivers updates to my gpu... I did the updates but days after, my gamepad got unrecognized by my PC but the worst it's that my gpu's performance sudently has vanished (weak performance, screen tearing in everything, vram was also less). I try everything but no solution (tryed to put the newer drivers version or the oldest versions but same thing) and (i even change from Win 8.1 to Win 7, so if it would run better). Well, games were now unplayable :/


      So, a year passed and by curiosity i was seing things on AMD Catalyst Control Center, and by putting the settings on Standart, the gpu's performance went up between, i would say, 75%-80%; vram (2GB) was back at all once again but screen tearing that is one thing that i can't get rid of it (seriously, it's annoying... even in videos, screen tearing appears!). Some games are playable (acceptable) but i still don't have my GPU on 100%.


      Without solution, i'm planning to make a PC build but if i could at least know how to resolve my gpu's issue, it would be great.


      Ah! The warranty was over by the time the problem started to kick in.


      Does someone knows what should i do? The laptop PC is for work and gaming and, although that i want to make a gaming PC build, i simply can't leave my laptop's gpu like that! If it has a solution, i want to do something about it!


      Thanks for the attention (and sorry if i posted on the wrong topic)

          So you still have screen tearing with vsync enabled? Even if you force the settings through the GPU panel?

              With Vsync on, screen tearing doesn't appear but a huge drop on fps happens (for example, Rocket League is 1 of the games that i can accept playing, with some settings on, i got on average 60 fps but sometimes i have to quit the game, to let the gpu rest for a little and then come back to the game with those average 60 fps. Turning Vsync on, eliminates the screen tearing but adds another problem... instead of 60 fps, i get 7-10 fps. Turning off the graphics options (everything to the minimum), i get 15-20 fps... So Vsync is not a solution and even if it was, stuttering is something that i can't tolerate :/ )
