  • direct x test

    ive recently upgraded my card (though not by much) from a radeon HD 5450 1gb to a GeForce GT 520 2gb card and though my ingame performances are MUCH better... the direct X test shows the exact same frame rate (around 6 fps) im really confused why its showing that horribly low but the card will run skyrim and swtor on very high - max settings without issues. what am i missing?

    Maybe you are CPU limited?

      how would i fix that?
      ive got an intel i7 that scores around 6k on the test

        You didn't mention which i7 you have, but most are pretty good CPUs.

        Just looked up these video cards. Both are very low end cards.
        The DirectX10 test is a pretty heavy test. So frames rates under 10 frames/sec are normal for low end cards. Would be interesting to see that results for all the 3D tests. Would be hard to believe none of them changed at all.
