Solved My 2070 super is under performing

May 16, 2020 at 08:13:46
Specs: Windows 10, I7-9700k
So i ordered a new replacement GPU for my 1070Ti which is a 2070 super. And i am getting less performance than when i had the 1070Ti and I'm unsure why. I have fiddled with MSI Afterburner, used DDU to uninstall and re install the new drivers. I have taken it out and reput it back in, but it's still giving me problems running games like Valorant. But whenever i run 3D Mark or other benchmarks it seems to perform perfectly as if there are no issues. Im not sure what I'm supposed to do to fix this. Any help is apreciated.

✔ Best Answer
You asked this several days ago & never followed up about your PSU. If you've done nothing other than change the GPU to one that requires more power, the PSU would be one of the things to look at.
Are you monitoring CPU, GPU, & system temps? Voltages? Try running OCCT.

How do I test to see if my power is the problem with OCCT.

And yea sorry about making a new post.

I'm unsure on what specs is needed for my RM750 corsair PSU. Will it be worth it to try and change my PSU and see if that changes anything or will it likely be a waste of money and time.

okeeey, how do you mean under preforming?

You can run rivatuner (which came with msi afterburner to show ingame framerate & gpu clockspeeds)

here is a wild guess based on the information given:

driver re-installs will reset your display settings, so if you have a 144hz monitor, it will reset to 59.94hz,
giving you 60ps in games with Vsync on for example.

3dmark disabled vsync by default, while most games have it turned on mby default :)

edit, future mark port royale may give very low frame rate, but thats just because it using realtime raytracing, which may translate to sub 60 fps even on a rtx 2070S

"I'm unsure on what specs is needed for my RM750 corsair PSU"

That's all we need to know. In your other post, all you said was 750W. Specs are more than adequate unless it's old & failing. This review is from 2013 so it seems that model has been around for a while.

Ok so my clock speeds vary during the game. I use NZXT CAM as the monitoring software on my second monitor while i play to monitor my clock speeds etc without it interfering with my gaming experience. And it says on idle 300 MHz sometimes 405 or something similar. and in benchmarks goes up to 2100 MHz but in games it varies within thee 1500-1700 region. And I'm unsure how or why this happens, and it very frustrating when i know the card can handle upwards of 500FPS on games like Valorant but struggles to get 144 sometimes which is my refresh rate.

NZXT CAM is fine, same kind of overlay as rivatuner.

i'm not sure if i asked this before in a previous post of yours, but you are running your memory in dual channel right? you can see this setting in CPU-Z.exe under memory i believe.

it makes sense if you run vsync on & have single channel mem on a 144hz screen.

it also makes sense for the clockspeed to drop, its a way of lowering power usage on Nvidia GPU's when the target framerate can be hit at a lower clock.

& garbiels727 500fps maby on average, on a overclocked system. but yeah i think you can hit stable 144fps @1080p max settings.

anyways im off to a friend of mine :)

will check back tomorrow

Yes i am running my memory on Dual Channel with 3600 2x8GB. So are you telling me if i increased my max FPS on my game it would run at higher clock speeds to stay at that level resulting in my FPS to consistently stay above 144?

it helps to lower the 1% lows a bit, you can try running high performance power mode in windows 10 (at the cost of more power usage ofc)

im not sure what your particular performance issue is, so i cant answer that one.

good to see you got your memory set up correctly.

try looking at ingame settings in volarant, vsync, frame limiters, etc (runnign high resolution 1440p or higher for example)

I'm still getting issues struggling to get 144 fps on Valorant where a lot of my friends with worse GPUs are getting better fps. i have tried everything. Is there anything else not mentioned that i could do? Would swapping my powersupply be any use? Im not sure if my PSU is the problem or maybe its just the card itself.

VSYNC is it off in volarant & what about frame limiters?

"my friends with worse GPUs are getting better fps"
same settings? same resolution? what GPU?

Vsync is off
My friends are using the same settings, resolution and their GPU is not as good as 2070 super, not sure exactly what they have as i forgot but when they told me i remember it wasn't as strong as my GPU.

Edit: My friend has a 1080 and minimum 200 fps

I would compare all specs of that computer, with yours. Maybe there's one thing that is slowing you down, the motherboard, or, I don't know what is left to compare.

Afterburner should give you a hint, like what happens with your temperatures, are they very high, very low, or expected ?

What if you play a totally different game ? Maybe all is solved. You can have corruption in OpenGL software, or something like that. It could be a lot, really. Windows re-install could be something to try, if running out of clues.

Your GPU may just be broken as well.

gtx 1080 is very similar to the rtx 2070 super

same amount of cuda cores, same amount of ROP's/TMU's same amount of VRAM

the 2070 Super does have RT cores for ray tracing & the vram is 40% faster.

so i suppose it's 10~15% faster on average than a gtx 1080.

could you run the userbenchmark test? (it should indicate any issue to me)

i do not see any issue, (maby the NVME SSD is getting bottlenecked, but not that hard), good overclocks aswell on GPU & CPU.

could be the game itself, i mean is it released to the public yet? official release day = June 29th.

you may have to wait for Nvidia to optimise their drivers for this game & their new turing GPU architecture.

here is omsone with the same issue but with a slower (in latency) cpu:

so does that suggest that its just the game? because my card shows only 30% utilisation but not getting consistent frames. I don't understand why the game cant request more fps from my GPU

i think its the game, here is someone with 2080ti & 9900k hitting 280 AVG on low settigs @ 1080p:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk0...

look at his gpu utilisation, also around 37%, clock speeds drop too with under utilisation.

I mean its not released yet, still alfa phase. polishing still needs to happen.
