AMD Radeon R7 Graphics
no overclocking

Driver Packaging Version 13.35.1005-140312a-169198E

Catalyst Version 14.3

windows 8.1 64 bit
motherboard? says "to be filled by O.E.M."
Processor AMD A10-7700K APU with Radeon(TM) R7 Graphics, 3400 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
 BIOS Version 015.040.000.001
I recently purchased this computer and have been experiencing framerate issues from the start for most games I play. When I search for drivers to update it, the card can't be identified by the Catalyst Control Center. No other drivers make a difference when I do manually find one. Even at the lowest graphical settings, my games have more hiccups than any other computer I've used, and this one has much higher technical specs. An example of this would be World of Warcraft, which doesn't go beyond 20 fps with "Good" settings, and when set to the absolute lowest doesn't pass 50 in a semi-populated area. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Are you sure you're using the R7 and not the APU? Which one is the monitor plugged ito?

Also what R7 is this card? And what resolution are you using in games? E.g. if it's an R7 250 (budget card) and you're trying a full HD resolution, having bad performance is normal. That's why budget cards are cheap.

When I get the info from CCC- it says its a AMD Radeon(TM)R7 Graphics.
I belive it's this- R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5.
I though the R7 was an apu card, I don't know the difference. The monitor is plugged into the DVI port.
I"m running WoW in 1920x1080.

I tried plugging in a regular blue componet cable. No change to framerate lag. Is this because AMD hasn't released some sort of driver or firmware update..?

Also, I tried using the saphire drivers in this thread > http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=454&threadid=170118

Can't get them to work. Any suggenstions?

You still haven't properly answered what your monitor is plugged into. Your motherboard may have a DVI port as well... (Powered by the APU.) Is it plugged into the video card?
