I recently got a VisionTek RX 480. Im having trouble with games. They have slower fps than i expected for a 480. I came from a GTX 770 and it just doesnt feel like all of a big jump. I dont overclock anything, and its recently formated computer. I did a driver sweep 3 times just to make sure the recent amd drivers were all right. Also updated everything and updated all motherboard drivers.





Is this normal? I dont even run at 1080p my display is 1650x1080. I thought a 480 would ultra settings at my display on any game. My CPU is kind of old but a I5 i thoughtnt should bottle neck that much. Im at least expecting 60fps constant. Any advice would help a lot

First, download the latest AMD Drivers.

Then, download this: Wagnard's Display Driver Uninstaller - this is a GPU driver cleaner, it will definitely remove your GPU drivers, unlike official uninstallers. Note: There are some deceptive ads on the forum page.


  • Run Wagnard's DDU - it may create a number of files in the same directory, like a .zip file, so you may have to run it in its own folder
  • Run the application, "DDU.exe" I believe is the name
  • Select the "best option", Safe Mode and Reboot
  • After the computer reboots to safe mode, run DDU if it does not open automatically
  • Choose the "best option", clean install and reboot I think it is called
  • After restarting install the driver you downloaded first
  • Restart if prompted
