PCIE Bus speed issues
This issue has been a real pain in the ass, and I think I finally figured out what was going on. The first clue was when I played BF3, sometimes it would be really choppy, even if I dropped the GFX settings to low. I would reboot and the issue would go away for some time.
Then I had a friend that wanted to play GuildWars 2, so I fired up the game and I was having severe FPS issues, no matter what resolution or video settings I used, I was only getting 10-20fps. After reading some forums for fixing this issue for GW2, I found my issue.
I opened up GPU-Z and checked the bus interface speed. There it was, set to PCI-E 1x v1.0. After I reboot, it goes back to normal 16x v2.0. I believe this gets stuck in 1x mode after I remote desktop into my PC.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a known bug? Is there any way to fix without rebooting the PC? This has been happening for a long period of time over different driver releases. I am currently on 13.9 and I still have the issue. I am glad I found the actual problem.
AMD 7950, Intel Core-i7 920, 12GB DDR3, Windows 7 64-bit.
