I recently posted in this forum regarding my old GPU (gtx 580) not being able to handle running 2560x1440 at ultra settings, so I went out and brought a 7970 OC mainly due to the advice that I needed the higher vram to run the higher res.
So now I'm seeking more advice as I'm still not completely satisfied.
I'm now running 2560x1440 on a samsung S27850D with a Sapphire 7970 OC with wow settings to ultra - I have my card clocked at 1000Mhz core and 1700Mhz memory clock and after some monitoring my game is using around 1.5gb of memory on the card.
I'm still dropping frames when I didn't except to, if I take a flight path through the forest I drop frame to 40fps and the game becomes very un-smooth, when I'm raiding I'm dropping frames again to around 40fps - I would say it's running better with the new card but I was excepting better considering I had the more vram and the clocks are set high......this is wow guys surely I should be doing better?
Help can anyone pass on tips to get more out of my card? I'm only using half my vram, why? I don't want to turn down settings - I honestly thought with the power I have this should be enough to run 60fps 100%
Any advise is greatly appreciated
