Hey there.

 

I have a massive problem and couldn't find any solution for this. So maybe some one in this forum can help me.

 

My PC perfoms very bad in Forstbite games like BF3, BF4 and BF Hardline. This problem only occurs in Frostbite games. Anything else runs perfectly fine. I got very low framerates even with low settings.

Here are some examples:

Battlefield 4 Ultra preset

Battlefield 4 Low preset

 

My PC:

FX 8350 @ Stock (4.0 GHz)

8 GB Ram (Corsair Vengeance LP @ 1600)

Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC (New. I had a GTX 570 Phantom before.)

GA-990FXA-D3

PSU is a brandnew BeQuiet System Power 700W

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Some Facts:

My CPU load is @ 60 %

It's not a temperature problem. My CPU is under 50° C and my GPU is under 80° C on BF4.

I get those low framerates only in Frostbite games. (BF3,4 and BFH) Other Games and benchmarks  are running perfectly.

Examples:

Unigine Valley Benchmark: Click

Tomb Raider Benchmark (Max Settings): Click

3DMark: Click

In BF3, i have 120 FPS on Ziba Tower, but when my CPU gets under load, it drops to 30-40 FPS. (One Example is the Deathscreen on Ziba Tower. When you can see the whole map)

I had better performance with the FX in combination with my old GTX 570 in BF4. (Even my CPU load was higher) Of course on low-mid settings, but i get low FPS on low settings too with my R9.

I have better performance with Mantle, but if high raise the Resolution scale a bit, it drops too.

I'm not the only one with that kind of problem: Click and Click

What i tried so far:

Installed a fresh copy of Windows 7

Tried different GPU drivers: (13.12, 14.4 and 14.6 Beta)

Bios reset

Bios update (i had F8 and tried the F9a Beta Bios)

Installed the latest chipset drivers. (click)

Disabled core parking in Windows

Disabled energy saving option in Windows AND Bios

Enabled "One Core per Module" in bios. (Wanted to check if the problem is related to the Core utilization) In fact, my performance was even lower.

I installed a second OS (Windows 8.1 Trial). Same bad performance (Click)

 

 

 

please help me

Have you tried v-sync ?

Have you tried enabling triple buffering or locking framerate to screen refresh with a third party tool like afterburner or radeonpro ?

Can you force fan to cool your gpu to 65-70 degrres celsius ? Powertune may be kicking in earlier than it should. I would test with 100% fan just to be sure there is no throttle happening. Check your ram and gpu utilization.

 

I searched the internet and seen dozens of similar topics and complaints.

Wait for patch or better driver support.

I don't use Vsync because it gives worse performance if you can't handle 60 FPS and it increases inputlag, but i'll give it a try.

 

I set a framecap with a config file but the perfomance wasn't better in eny way.

I think i tried to set the RPM to 100% with MSI Afterburner a few weeks ago, but it didn't help.

I hope AMD is aware of this issue and will fix it ASAP because even the Beta Driver didn't help.

 

EDIT: Vsync make it even worse. 30 FPS with drops. I only get 60 when i'm looking to the ground.

Please take a little of your time and fill this AMD issue report form.

This would make the driver team aware.

I suggest that you look into the bf4/ bf3 forums as well.

Thanks.

My personal opinion is that bf4 has several engine/ network code optimization issues till today. A great deal of testing with newer gpu cards lies to dice. Then, amd can release a driver based on that refinement or not.

Is it the same with nvidia ? Maybe. Or maybe not.

Bf3, on the other hand, is more optimized and should be eaten for breakfast with a beast card like yours. I really don't understand any fps dips there.

Upcoming drivers should hopefully adress some of the problems people are having in recent drivers.

 

Contacting amd, can dramatically help too.

Use radeonpro and force dynamic framerate limit.

It might help.

 

Also check latency issues with latencymon.

An audio driver, for example, can create lots of latency spikes in the system, affecting performance.

Are your PSU voltages good by the way ?

 

edit:  can you try 14.3 beta and see if it persists ?

I got a SB Recon 3D PCI soundcard. Could that be the problem?

Yes, dpc latency and latencymon should give similar results and are both good programs and free to use.

I strongly suggest latencymon though, because it can point/ guide you to the actual devices, drivers, processes or services that create the latency. It gives you much more detailed information/ feedback to work with.

 

Now, the pci souncard sould not be the problem if you already had it installed with the gtx card, since you didn't have problems then.

Either way, it doesn't hurt to test without it.

 

It is probably a graphics driver issue though. and i would suggest contacting ea and amd (again, if you already have) and demand better support.

 

Thanks.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
CONCLUSION
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.
LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for  0:05:41  (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

So, LatencyMon tells me my CPU is throttling. But why? My CPU temperatures are normal and other programs like Coretemp, AllCPUMeter and HWMonitor showed normal 4.0GHz ingame without changing. Btw. Cool n Quiet is disabled.

Read this:

http://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-7-|-windows-vista/6329-another-high-dpc-latency-issue-with-sound-distortion.html

 

There are a lot of similar posts on the internet. Check if you like.

 

The reported dpc latency shows a  2 sec. delay on the ataport.sys

It's too high.

 

1. Check the health of all hdd/ ssd with hd sentinel.

2. Do an "average read access" benchmark (tools tab) on all hard drives with aida64. Normal values are 10-25 ms approx.

3. Update sata drivers, atapi driver or any driver/ controller related to hdd.

Use a third-party software (like driver pack solution pro- not free)  if necessary, after making a manual system restore point.

4. Disable unnecessary/ unused sata controllers in BIOS.

5. Check sata cables are seated properly, swap them or connect drives to different ports.

6. Check for power saving features in BIOS and disable all.

7. Uninstall all unnecessary software installed in windows that came with your motherboard.

 

This is my system's report with latencymon:

Is it normal for an 8-thread intel core i7 to have that difference with your cpu ?

Take into consideration that i use the C1 power saving feature in BIOS.

As such, my load speed is 3.9 ghz and my idle speed is 1.6 ghz approx.

So, i don't think it's normal for you. But i've not had any experience with an amd cpu lately, so i could be wrong.

 

 

EDIT:     a friend of mine just told me that he has a little higher cpu values than me on windows 7 64bit with a core i7 920 stock, when using latencymon monitoring.

It could just be that he has other different pc components than me.

Or, it could be windows 8.1 using the cpu better than w7.

Not sure.

I'll have to test for myself sometime.

Sorry for a little off-topic.

I tested my system HDD with both programs. (I have a second HDD but it's only used for recording stuff. The are no programs installed on that one)

HD Sentinel:

Test finished without errors. Erything should be okay.

 

And AIDA64:

Windows 8.1 is actually a bit better for multicore CPUs. It handles the core utiliziation better than Windows 7 which results in a slightly better performance. But thats OT

Like i said. I allready disabled every power saving function in my Bios and Windows.. Btw. I got no reply from AMD yet.

Yes, clean good results.

 

You know, it's probably a game engine/ gpu driver issue, but i always like to exhaust all options. That means hardware, software and system config.

 

What about the other suggestions i made ?

The one about the ataport.sys in particular ?

Latency issues and cpu underperforming are not to be ignored.

You did clean installed the nvidia drivers before you clean install the amd gpu, didn't you ?

Yup. I replaced my GPU (and my PSU) and uninstalled everthing with Display Driver Uninstaller in Windows safemode. Then i realized my perfomance in BF3/4/H was pretty low and i installed a fresh copy of Windows 7. There shouldn't be any parts of the old Nvidia driver.

EDIT: BTW: Hardware Thermal Control is still enabled, but i think it's to risky to disable it isn't it?

If your cpu cooling is efficient enough, then the risk is minimal.

Feel free to test without it.

You should have probably had stressed the cpu with a stability benchmark like Prime95 or intel burn test, by now. If you monitor temps beyond 90+ degrees celsius, then you should immediately stop the stress test.

It is always helpful to see if your cpu temps are good below the operational heat limits and bsod-free.

Like i said. I benched with Tomb Raider, Unigine Valley and 3D Mark and i got good results without shutting down or something like that. Maybe i'm doing a little test later. Btw. I tested a few other things.

- Installed 13.11 from my GPU driver CD

- I'm using an DVI cable instead of HDMI (I used DVI with my old GPU and switched to HDMI with the new card)

- Installed the HDMI audiodriver (I don't use it normally because i just don't need it)

 

Nothing changed :/ Anyway. I will edit my post when i'm done with the Themal Control test.

Yes, you got a point.

You can always disable the hd audio controller in device manager if you use the dvi cable, but it shouldn't matter anyway.

It was worth a try. I'm starting to get frustrated
