Solved

My gpu is underperforming.

So i have had issues with performance lately and i decided to do a 3dmark benchmark my specs are GTX 970 military grade, i7-7700k 4.2ghz running at 4.5 all the time basically, 16gb ram etc. And i was noticing in the gpu tests my gpu wasnt performing very well and i was right i got like 11k in score and i googled what other gtx 970 owners get and they mostly get around 13-14k, screenshot of score. https://gyazo.com/897c61e5dbbd521cde30c0b288477616, So any feedback on how to fix this would be very much appreciated thank you very much in advance.

  1. Where are you seeing people get a 13-14k Firestrike score with a GTX 970?

  3. maybe they're heavily overclocking? i just went and looked up my old scores when i built this system with a 970 gigabyte g1 gaming, and 10117, 10161, and 11008 with a very mild overclock. as for 13-14 on a single card.... idk. also those links you have are 11 and 12k, and 1-200mhz over my cards stock in clockspeed, so yeah. overclocking.

    Yeah they are 11-12k but not the "Graphics scores" thats what matters for the gpu :)

    ah yes, i didnt look at that. went back to check and yeah my graphics score for stock is like 11.8 and 13.1k for my overclock i spent all of 5 minutes on. so again, they're hitting these scores with an overclock, as you can see by checking the gpu core and memory clock when you scroll down. you'll notice a very heavy memory overclock on those scores you see as well. they put some time in to it i'd assume.

    my stock

    my quick oc

    keep in mind those were done around 2 years ago.

    your graphics score look pretty good for stock.
