Bought an Acer XG270HU 27in 144Hz FreeSync along with a new R9 380 graphics card today and I'm only getting 50-60 fps in the only game I play Dota 2, sometimes even hitting 50-40fps during big teamfights. (when the camera is still and there isn't much action going on I am able to just get flashes of 80-90fps)
My specs are AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor 3.20GHz. 8gb ram and running 64bit Win10. 650w Corsair PSU.
Now I know it's not the most modern CPU but I feel I should at least be getting 100-120 fps with this new graphics card. I downloaded afterburner and here are some logs, http://www.filedropper.com/hardwaremonitoring3rdone
The CPU is averaging at about 50% so I don't think it's being bottlenecked.
I've tried turning Vsync off, turning AA off and even changing my resolution to 1920x1080 and no change in fps at all.
I've reinstalled AMD Catalyst, tried both versions. (the latest as well as the beta)
I've looked in Catalyst to see if vsync or any kind of framerate cap is on and nope.
Although this new Monitor is great I feel a bit disappointed as I bought a new graphics card to go with it and the fps is, to quote someone "frame rates you're having are not representative of the performance of the card, heck a modern system runs at 70fps average on 4K with that card, the older and slower 7950 runs a 2560x1600 at 100fps"
Some people have suggested overclocking my CPU and graphics card but I'm not really sure how to do that or if I even should consider it. (I've been told it can damage your hardware)
I would GREATLY appreciate any help/suggestions/anything at all! I'm downloading some benchmark tests while I sleep and will run those tomorrow.
