Everything is bad

Question asked by sebe7665 on Nov 25, 2017

I am using a Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 470 OC, other than the stock overclock I have not overclocked it myself. The computer does register the card/says it has an RX 470 onboard. As far as I know, the card works for graphics, my monitor is plugged into the card and the lights turn on/fans spin up (never particularly much, implying never great load, I think). However, it doesn't seem to work with any hardware acceleration, even where companies have said it should, e.g. wondershare ultimate video converter.Also, note that on Cinebench my CPU scored 180 whereas the comparison scored 254. Also that in Minergate my CPU gets max 30 H/s and whilst 'mining' my stays at a magical 4 H/s when it should obv be higher than the CPU, sometimes it just stays at 0.
