Better Scores with Windows than with latest AMD driver -
| posts: 7
My scores (1920x1080 Max) are ~2900 with AMD's latest legacy drivers and ~3300 with the drivers that came with Windows. I found this out while troubleshooting one of my video cards (the thermal paste on the 2nd gpu had dried out). Here are my system specs:
ATI Radeon HD 4870x2 (2 Sapphires and 1 PowerColor but same results using any 1 of the 3)
16 G Ram (2 8's CL9 1333)
120G SSD OCZ Vertex3 (system and games)
1TB WD Caviar Black (everything else)
Any one know why AMD's drivers dropped the performance and a way to get it back? I'm going to post in dellon's modded driver thread too and see if what he's done may help.
Side note: I'm currently doing research to start OC'ing in case that would affect your recommendations.
Thanks for the input.
