GPU = XFX R9 290x

Drivers = 13.11 btea 9.2, (probelms persist on all previous versions of 13.11 drivers)

OS = Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Service Pack 1

Problems = Low frame rates (tried all game video settings low= avg.65fps, ultra=45fps)

MOBO = ASUS M4a89gtd ProUSB3

PSU = Corsair 950TX (950w)

Monitor = ASUS VH232H 60Hz @ 1920x1080

Apps & Games = Problems occur currently only in Battlefield 4

CPU = AMD Phenom II x6 1100T Black Edition, 6 core, @3.97Ghz

MOBO BIOS = Latest version (Not sure of revision number)

Memory = G.Skill RipjawsX, 4x4gb, 16GB total @ 1333Mhz

Additional Hardware = SSD (OS,Apps,BF4 installed) Sufficient cooling in case.

Additional details = No viruses, only happens in Battlefield 4, tried multiple drivers, checked to see if CPU is bottle necking (It's not)

 

I've done everything I can think of to get a better frame rate with very little improvements. I'm just wondering if anybody else is having problems with the R9 290x and the beta drivers being released. For paying close to $600 for a GPU I would expect to have better support. I've never had driver problems before with my old cards (HD6770 crossfired) but if this doesn't get resolved I'll be more carefull with my next GPU purchase.

If 65 fps is poor performance, you should just buy a console and play at 30 to see the difference.

Also there are so many BF4 performance threads already. One more is always welcome though... Still, if you read one, you'd know that there are similar issues with nvidia cards and it's the game being badly written. You should bug EA about it, not the AMD community which consists of users like you.

I don't see how this is bugging the community as this is my first post ever to the AMD forums. I'm not looking for attitides. Plus the AVERAGE fps is around 65 on LOW SETTINGS. It mainly stays at 30-40 fps. Only geting up to the 60-80 fps mark when I'm staring at a wall or in a vehicle. For what we pay for games and hardware they shouldn't release a product until it works properly. I was just wondering if this is a big issue with game optimization and poor drivers by AMD or if it was something on my end.

A little bit of all, but mainly the usual thing. They had to release the game regardless of it being ready or not. Otherwise Activision could have been faster and "dominated" the "market" with COD 173.

This is true vice versa. COD was also rushed out in alpha stage to avoid EA being the one and only releasing mindless crap shooters this month.

New game - new card...be patient...it will improve.

How do you know you have the "latest" driver for your mobo if you don't know what version you have?  Last updates for that mobo was in July 2012 (v. 3029/3030).  

Be sure Turbo boost for integrated gpu and the integrated gpu itself is disabled.

Check to see if you have supersampling, etc. checked in 3d Applications in CCC.

have you turned off crossfire settings? because I'm willing to be you will get the same frames. my xfire setup (although not as awesome as yours) is with oc 7870s and whether enabled or disabled i get the same frames. i cant load up beta drivers without getting blue screens, if you could tell me how you got beta drivers to work that would be nice. apparently they are supposed to have a crossfiring profile for bf4 that you can select

Doesn't sound like he has a Crossfire problem, Deuty...

Thats weird because my 290x only drops below 60 fps on ultra in one map. The rest of the time it is well above 100 fps.
