I've been getting a lot of FPS drops every min in a lot of games.


After further investigation, I could see in real time that the FPS drop was directly related to GPU Clock drops




Made this using Paint, as I'm in class right now.


GPU: Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition 2GB

Average Temperature: 68° (gaming)

Average Fan Rotation: 65% (gaming)

Volate remains the same, even during drops


Using latest AMD drivers, fresh install of Windows 7


All information about my system:



Thanks in advance

Are you using AMD's Catalyst Control Center? Does it do this in all games? Are you overclocking? Using a watercooler any drips or moisture? Try reseating the video card in the slot. Even though they are mounted to the chassis some of them cards are still really heavy on the backend and they put a lot of stress on the PCIE slot.
