Graphic Car = Sapphire R9 270X Dual-X Boost and OC

AMD Catalyst Driver , the only one on the new build installed 13.12

Operating system Windows 8.1 x64

Fx 8320 OC to 4.0ghz

8GB ram

750W PSU

M5E99FX PRO EVO 2.0 Bios over 1016 (wich has problem with the fx) current version is 2012



MAIN PROBLEM IS , with my old card an HD 6770 i could maintain 30fps in raids(25mans) no problem with a Athlon II X4 , and now with my new comp FX 8320 8CORE and a brand new r9 270x 2gb i maintain the SAME fps then the old dated gpu card... everyone i talk in the game gets better performance than me and its not possible. I have completed the AMD form and im really into gettin a fix or something to improve performance on this old but very popular game. (wish gives a reason to possible get a fix for it)

EDIT : I forgot to mention that when i play the game it recommend HIGH settings to 30fps in raids , when i put it at LOW , still 30fps under load.

In the open world it goes to 100 fps and over wish is perfect. I dont think its a CPU Bottleneck cause the card is being load at 99%.

This is a user to user forum, so there not ever going to give you any sorta reply at all. 

There is a ton of optimizations they could do for world of warcraft. But there not going to. The game is old, and there is no reason for them to waste time writing drivers for world of warcraft.  I mean I think there is plenty of reason but even a 7750 will max out the game. 

What I did was drop the useless AMD CPU I had and stick in an intel. FPS jumped dramatically simply because of the FX series horrid IPC. And pretty much every single console port game I own. Sad but true. 

Since AMD though is in PS4/Xbox 1, We might end up getting console ports that don't suck. Time will tell though.
