Low resolution? Fps limit?

ID: hbd7vy9

Taken off all fps limits an it still does the same. I played some other games and most games run perfect

Download the Shadow of the Tomb Raider trial on steam and run the build in benchmark. Post result screen here.

Shouldn't your driver be 21.8.2 ? Not 21.6.1

Make sure both cables are plugged in. Best to be sure they are separate cables from the PSU.

Also sometimes the card doesn't fully get pushed into the pcie slot when installing. That would be a loss of 75w right off the bat. Check to make sure the card os properly seated in the pcie slot.

Another test you can do is benchmark it with csgo.

You have to tell us what resolution your monitor is, dumb dumb

Is your frame rate capped at the monitors resolution? Your gpu doesn't work harder than it needs to. If you're not giving it more work it'll just work hard enough to max your fps as far as it can.

There's your problem, a 6700 XT is overkill in most games at 1080p. If you don't have Vsync on or something you're probably CPU limited depending on the game.

If you play at 1080p that will be the case in lots of games. These are 1440p cards.

Why is this downvoted??

ID: hbdfedm

can that make a difference?

Sure. My new GPU was at 50-60% usage in many games at 1080p before I upgraded my monitor.
