    According to the GPU-Z Screenshot and the fact that the fan-speed is showing the real-time RPM ,i find it very strange that your clock speeds are so damn low.

    Seemingly the card is not upclocking when you are ingame.

    Could you provide us with another gpu-z screenshot but check the little arrows at each sensor and make sure that the max values are shown.

    Some reason your GPU utilization is not even hitting 30%? Did you alt+tab fast and took a screenshot? You have to do it before GPU Load graph goes back to idle.

    it's not that it's not hitting 30%, it's that it's stuck in 2d mode. was that screenshot taken just after you stressed the gpu? I'm thinking yes, because your gpu temp is 55C and that's too high for idle.

    In gpu-z, check your maximum clocks.

    Or run MSI Afterburner to monitor your clocks. it's pretty simple, really.

    1. Open GPU-Z.
    2. Open game.
    3. Close game after 5min or alt-tab to the windows background.
    4. Get a print-Screen.

    It's because I alt+tabbed from the game to windows. My GPU clock is maxed at 1100Mhz when I'm in the game.

    cool, that's what I wanted to see. so clocks are fine. I would re-install windows, it takes half an hour, really.

    This would be sorted out 3 pages ago if he knew what he was doing.

    I think there is bad bottlenecking somewhere. Your new graphic card is working half it's full potential.

    That's what I'm saying.. The GPU usage is low.
    According to my CPU usage, the CPU isn't bottlenecking cause the cores aren't at 100% all the time when I game. GPU load is 33% and when I'm in the game's menus it sometimes higher, that's why you see 49 max load.

    Well if your cpu is not bottlenecking the GPU should usually be up at 99-100%

    is that in every game? I mean your gpu usage.

    ok let's get this straight your cpu at stock or 3.2ghz will be bottlenecking that 280x.

    but that doesnt mean your games shouldnt run fine just that you arent getting the max fps you should be getting.

    how does a res evil 5 bench run? should be over 100fps and butter smooth..if not your gpu/drivers have issues.

    ok res evil5@1920x1200 aax4 dx10 161 fps..(butter smooth).

    that's something for you to compare against op.

    The solid evidence is that it is not working. You simply say "The card is not performing anywhere near to its listed specifications, and therefore is defective". Then you exchange it for another - simple as that. If you'd like to continue wasting your time where the end result is a waste of your money, feel free. I am out of this thread, as it is now pointless babble about bottlenecking.

    Regardless of the bottleneck, an R9 280X will perform on par or better than a GTX560Ti. He's stated several times that his R9 280X is performing worse than the GTX560Ti it replaced. That right there says the problem is NOT a bottleneck. It's either driver or hardware.

    Blaming everything on bottlenecks doesn't solve problems. It just proves incompetence on the part of those attempting to "help". The best route for the OP at this point is to reinstall Windows. If that doesn't resolve the issue, the card needs to be exchanged.

    This, copy paste the answer above and tell that to your seller if the format does not work. Maybe your psu is old and not up to the task.

    Seriously. What is wrong with everyone. :bang: I just wanted to be sure of the performance and clocks. I can help if I something come to my mind.
