Video cards and drivers updating

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Geeks,

My system configurations are specified below.

ATI Radeom 5870 1 GB

Processor : AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition 3.2 GHz.

RAM : 4 GB

Operating System : Windows 7 – 64 bit

Screen Resolution : 1920 x 1080

I know it is not the best computer in the world but I am only able to get 20 – 30 fps when in city and 50-60 fps in the wilderness. It is causing problems to me as the fps is changing and I denied playing it.

What will be the advantage for updating the driver?  Is it 12.1? Will it improve the performance? I also read somewhere that it is making a CAP update for Crossfire X users. Is it right?

I am having only one video card and so I think it will not help more. Please help me to get out of this problem.

Thanks in advance for all the support.

Hi Anderson, Video Card or Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is one of the most important part of the CPU especially when playing games, Video Editing and Rendering Videos, there is an advantage when you update your Video Card Driver. Mostly, upgrading your driver for your videocard can fix errors like graphical glitches, the benefits of this allowing games to run smoother and sometimes giving additional support and functionality to its new features and improves performance. You can visit here and check your Video Card Driver to its latest version. You can also improve performance by lowering the Video Settings of the game that you are playing. Thanks

Updating your video card driver can address certain errors with previous versions of the driver and can also add features to the video card's capabilities. However this won't be a guarantee that your gaming experience will be improved unless there are already known issues with the previous drivers. If you'd like to improve your gaming experience, try to decrease your game settings so as to increase FPS. You can also lower the resolution of the screen. Otherwise, if all your settings have been optimized and you're still not getting a better FPS, start considering a better video card or a crossfire setup.
