Hi, I has got a HD 7970M in my Clevo P150EM and my problem is this.

When I play for example Battlefield 4, the GPU usage is 38-59% no more, and for that, the FPS in game go down to 30-45. The problem isn't of BF4, when I play another high end graphics game, the problem persists.

I installed the Driver 13.12. but I have the same problem of low usage that I had with 13.9.

I hope a solution now. The performance is horrible, and I know that if my GPU usage is more stable and higher, the performance go up, and I would put the game in 1080p with 60 fps, now I can't do it for this usage problem.

Please, release a good driver now, this GPU has got bad performance since 2012, and we want a oficial solution now, or we go to Nvidia.

I am playing in High performance mode, I am not using HD 4000 Grapics.


My gaming laptop is this:


CPU i7 3820QM 2.70 Ghz

GPU AMD HD 7970M 2048 MB GDDR5

RAM 8 gigas DDR3 1600 Mhz

HD 750 Gigas 7200 RPM

Windows 7 64 bits
