his GPU and CPU are better than mine and i have higher average frames than he has.

that explains it.

get a driver update and try again.

your GPU is able to use mantle/vulkan

and of course your performance is worse when you use the inferior API :ghost:


for contrast my results with DX

with the same "one core works, one does a bit and the other idle" pattern in CPU usage.

with mantle all my cores have similar utilisation of 60-90%

Well, THAT is some serious upgrade! :shock: :thumbup:

Not as serious as my GT 610 --> GTX 960 FTW transition. :ghost: :squirrel: :jumping: :train:

My 560 ran a certain game with minimal graphics settings at 4-20 FPS. Depending on objects on map, the map itself, etc.

New card plays the certain game with maximum graphics settings at 56-60 FPS.

Upon my brother's insistence I applied for a new, presumably better (much higher ceiling for technical excellence) job today. And was hired on the spot. They'll train me from scratch. :shock:

What will you do at your new job?

Welding.
It's a custom metal enclosures operation.
I toured the place yesterday (and met the welding supervisor; nice guy), and they seem to run a tight ship. Clean, well lit, well ventilated, well organized.

I bow in front of every good welder. Especially stainless steel, aluminum, and polymer welders! We had a guy in my previous company, he was about 50 years old, master welder! I never saw such evenly placed welding points and such beautiful welding grooves. He never used a machine, always did it by hand. He could weld ANYTHING!
