I just bought a new laptop and put Windows 8 on it. However, it seems that my GPU is not working.
AMD Radeon 7670 DDR3 1Gb
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
- current driver: 22.214.171.124
- Windows 8 Pro x64 64-bit
- I just bought a new laptop and put Windows 8 on it. However, it seems that my GPU is not working. There was a triangle with an exclamation mark in Device Manager. After some searching I managed to get it "fixed", trying drivers, catalyst controll center and Windows FixIt. However, I think this changed nothing, as it still is my CPU which handles all the graphics. I downloaded tools to see what my GPU was up to. FurMark says my GPU is constanty 0°, GPU-Z says it has aconstant GPU-load of 100%, and GPU Shark says 0.0%. So something is up...
-I first noticed this because I get lower-than-expected FPS in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, even though I put all my graphics settings on low and I have a 1Gb GPU.
