Hi up untill now i have allways run Nvidia graphics, last cards installed GTX 480 SLI. I have just picked up a pair of Gigabyte GV-R9 270OC-2GD-GA Graphics cards as an upgrade. I have used Display Driver Uninstall to remove all old drivers before i installed the new cards.

The cards have been installed Drivers Loaded and updated to the latest.  I checked the Windows experence which was previousley at 7.9 only to watch it drop to 7.7. Gobsmacked are these cards realy that slow or am i doing sompthing wrong ?  HELP!

Only checked the WEI because of erattic frame rates and laggy in game video in Battlefield 4. Thus far I have to say I am a little disappointed with these cards as they realy should work correctly in crossfire straight out of the box.

What Graphics settings are you using Ingame? What Resolution?

Hi i let amd's gaming evolved optimise the game. But i am now completley confused, i have been using OCCT to check graphics performance.

In crossfire both the GPU's usage will not go past 30% and the frame rate tops out at 74Fps but when crossfire is turned off both GPU's usage goes straight up to 98% and the frame rate tops out at 128Fps.

Completley Confused.

Both cards are Gigabyte
