Not sure here or games is the best place but it’s a hardware change that has happened. So here to start. got hold of a 3770 (non k) to see if it would assist with frame drops in games. Alas it had the opposite effect I had a 2500 (also non k) in and in valorant I got up to max ~200fps with drops down under 144 which I was hoping to assist (I know gpu plays a greater role). However after putting in the 3770 (and having it run at higher clocks than the 2500) valorant now maxed out at 170fps and spends a lot of time below 120. what could have caused this? 3D mark score is same for the gpu and much higher for the cpu. FYI. nothing else has changed. Temps are excellent. Over lock on both gpu and cpu are stable. please help.
