    Default XFX 7970 with Sabertooth 990FX Gen 3 Motherboard.

    I'm running 3D Mark 11 to test out my GPU but when it runs the First Srike test for High Settings in games, It gets a really low score and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. This card was 4th on TomsHardware and I just don't feel like its doing the highest it can do. If anyone has the same setup, please respond to this thread.

    What's the exact score?
    Firestrike is a real GPU killer, so scores tend to be a bit low

    I will as soon as I get home. Also If first strike runs in very low frame rate the what if I play lilke BF3 or Crysis 3, then I'm going to get to see my frame rate drop.

    Your Fire Strike Score seems to be ok.. its on par with allot of others I have seen. Some are slightly higher, but that is also because they have their CPU OCd...
    Also your drivers seem to be outdated.. try updating rerunning the benchmark.. But its actually about right.. give or a take some points..

    Take a look at this thread and you will see what I mean..

    Post Your 3DMark (2013) Scores
