Solved is my gpu bottle necked

February 22, 2014 at 05:49:24
Specs: Windows 7
passmark benchmark software results showed a score of 1000 for my gtx 650ti
But the actual score of 650ti is 2700 (as stated on site ) .
I dont know what's bottlenecking my gpu performance .

✔ Best Answer
What type of PCIe port is the graphics card hooked up to? I would suggest using at least a PCIe 2.0 x16, anything less would probably hurt your performance considerably.

What kind of RAM do you have in the system?

How much RAM do you have?

What processor do you have?

Are you using a conventional HDD or a Solid State? SATA? SATA II? SATA III? Is is IDE or AHCI?

sorry
500gb sata hhd
450w corsair psu
pentium g2010
gtx 650 ti 1gb
6gb ddr3 ram @ 1333mhz

i thought processor to be the bottleneck
but i checked gamedebate ,(can i run it ) for nfs rivals & it stated to be enough for medium-high @ full hd
but actually i got good fps at low settings.

That sounds like a bottleneck to me. Dual-core, at ~2.8Ghz, and the fact that it's a PENTIUM core which is rather outdated all adds up.

even better than core2quad q6600

Is it PCIe 2.0? Anyway only having DDR3-1333 is probably a bottleneck too...might look into getting some 1866 (CL 9 ish).

The board has a PCIe x16 3.0 slot, what it doesn't have is AHCI support or SATA III. Lack of AHCI shouldn't affect gameplay but it will cause slower data transfer rates. And as long as you don't plan on overclocking, DDR3-1333 is the correct RAM for a Pentium G2010.

It's Pentium by name but it's not a Pentium core. It's an Ivy Bridge core like used in the Core i3/5/7 but it has less L2 & L3 cache. As far as the CPU goes, you could have done worse:

guys, i just ran nfs rivals & its lagging even at low settings.
the recommended gpu for rivals is gtx 660
& i have gtx 650 ti.
processor usage is also not 100% , nor gpu usage...... ram 2.5gb used out of 6gb.
what 2 do?

There is no major bottleneck. We have no idea what you have installed. It could be your system is infected or you simply have too much garbage loading at startup & running in the background. It could also be your CPU is overheating. Post the temps.

"if using a vga cable with high bandwidth would make a differ"

No it would not.

"start>startup is empty"

That's not the place to look. Go to Start > Run, enter MSCONFIG & click OK, then click the Startup tab. Or install CCleaner-Slim (you should be using it regularly anyway), then click Tools > Startup.

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/bu...

"26-28°c is temp"

That's pretty low, are you sure it's the CPU temp & not the system temp? We need to know what it is under full load.

"passmark states my ram to be 500mhz
but my both rams are 1333mhz each"

You need to verify those readings. If it's correct, you'll need to reconfigure your BIOS settings. The RAM frequency should be 667MHz. Try CPUZ:

thanks
one of my ram is 667 mhz other 550 mhz
from where to check the cpu temp. ?
also processor usage strikes 98-100% while playing rivals.
after that it comes back to 10%.
there is a fan over processor, isn't it enough?

as far as processor is concerned ,
i googled out many sites such as cpuworld, cpuboss , gamedebate, geekbench, passmark etc. ....
got conclusion that my processor is more or less = core2quad q6600 (that is recommended for nfs rivals).
ok


just got a hint
geekbench score of my processor & q6600 is same for 32bit , but 64bit score of q6600 is almost double.
i shall install 32bit windows

"one of my ram is 667 mhz other 550 MHz"

When using CPUZ, the Memory tab will tell you the frequency ALL RAM is running at, the SPD tab will tell you what the individual sticks are capable of. 550MHz is not a standard RAM speed so something's not right. Could it be you have different speed RAM sticks paired up together?? When using different speed sticks, they do not run at different speeds - the faster RAM's speed is reduced to meet the speed of the lower speed RAM. Here's a couple of examples:

DDR3-1066 + DDR3-1333 = DDR3-1066 (@ 533MHz frequency)
DDR3-1333 + DDR3-1600 = DDR3-1333 (@ 667MHz frequency)

Try one of these to check your CPU temp readings:

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmo...

http://openhardwaremonitor.org/

"i shall install 32bit windows"

NO! If you do that, you will only be able to use 3-3.5GB of your total RAM. You need 64-bit to be able to make use of all 6GB.

again , thanks bro

http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Penti...

as u may see geekbench 32 bit has almost no difference , but 64-bit score is almost double ........ thats why i thought to format to 32 bit.
my 4gb ram is 667 & other 533
would it make a HUGE differ ?
here are the temp ;
cpu - 38C avg
hdisk 27C
GPU 27C
------------
also 2gb space left in my drive c
rest are half filled
i cannot expand c drive (tried es partition manager)
so made a new drive for program files (games only)
-----------------
CPU USAGE 100 PERCENT.
---------------------------------------------------
thereby i am formatting by pc to 32 bit
bcoz max 3gb ram was being used (even if the game was running)

You still will take a performance hit if you downgrade to 32 bit, as although it only says 3 GB is being used, windows does use the rest of the memory to cache programs, essentially pre-loading them for faster loading of applications.

"DDR3-1066 vs 1333"

Since you have both speeds paired up together, they will run as DDR3-1066 at 533MHz. That means your system is taking a performance hit due to the slow RAM speed. How big of a hit is hard to say. Did you try manually adjusting the RAM speed?

EDIT: I just remembered you have an Intel board so I'm not sure if the BIOS will allow you to configure the RAM settings.
