HelloI Have a AMD Radeon HD 6870 Graphics card, i recently removed windows 7 and did a fresh install of windows 8 and downloaded the correct drivers from the AMD website i use pretty much the same settings in the control panel for my card that i used on windows 7 including vsync but it seems something struggles along the way i dont get constant 60 fps like i did on windows 7 it seems every second it drops and goes back up and drops again then goes back up. This happens every second i play the game. i would expect it to do this once every now and then for whatever reasons but not by the second.Are the windows 8 drivers fully compatible or not or is there a reason why this si happening?Id appreciate any help

Currently win8 performance is way behind win7 performance in most cases. Win7 is 4 years old while 8 is new, drivers are new etc. Let them (both the OS and drivers) mature a bit.
