    4890 Toxic
    Hi

    I got my new 4890 Toxic too day and get really shocked after i started 3dmark06 or playin any game ...

    system:
    AMD PHENOM2 955 BE @ 3,7ghz
    OCZ REAPER HPC 2GB 1333
    Gigabyte AM3 UD4P
    OCZ sielentxtream 600W
    Saphire HD4890 Toxic
    OS: Windows XP

    1. i got lower fps and points with my 4890 in 3d mark than with my gtx 260 before... ati(18014 points) (gtx 260 18990points)

    2. Call of duty 4 when iam lookin @ a wall the fps goes up to 840 but when i look around the map the fps drop to 90... (and yes i know gettin much more fps when u lookin @ a wall is normal :) ) but for example:

    Same position / Same game settings / Same Setup

    4890 - FPS@WALL: around 800 / FPS@normal position around 90
    gtx260 - FPS@WALL: around 500 - 600 / FPS@sameposition around 250 oO

    3. first i installed the newest driver from net after i get knocked out from this ****in performance i used drive from CD but still the same problem..

    4. sometimes it looks like iam usin the widnows std. graphiccard driver :x it looks not that much crappy :D but a touch of it ^^

    i really hope its just a problem with the settings or something ... but @ the moment i think my baby is damaged :bang:

    p.s. i still use Windows XP SP3.. is now the time to switch it ? :D

    MFG

    did you just swapped gpu cards and install drivers ???

    many ppl had to re-install fresh windows, in order to proper use the ATI drivers at full extent; other ppl used driver sweeper, but even there, the card did not worked as spected;

    You should go into your software manager thing and use the "remove all ati software", then shut down, install the card and reinstall drivers.

    That is what works for me.

    Vantage loves nVidia and 3Dmark06 is so CPU bound that it doesn't matter anymore. Call of Duty should run faster on your ATi card, that's odd. GTX 260+ is no match for the HD 4890, specially with the Vapor-X edition which can rival the GTX 285.
