Asus PG35V, 64GB DDR4 3200Mhz Dominator Platinum RAM, i9-9900K CPU, 960 PRO SSD Samsung - my specs

Getting low FPS on Control and other games. in Control I don't even get 60fps on my monitor. Friend has exactly the same hardware, except an ASUS 3090 Gaming TUF, he gets over 80fps-100fps on Control. Other games I get low fps too. Like Dying Light (around 100 fps). Do you guys think there's something wrong with the GPU? Can't even match equivalent set ups in performance. Furmark, Unigine, 3D Mark, scores are much lower than other same setups. Only difference? The Brand of GPU.

Would welcome advise. Reinstalled drivers, used DDU, turned off gaming mode, turned off Afterburner, turn off RIva Tuner, turned off Gsync, turned off HDR. Lowered resolution, makes no difference if DLSS is on or off.

I've contacted MSI via the ticket system. But hoping someone's got a good idea of where to look.

you left out the most important part, the monitor.
displayport? huge rash of dodgy displayport cables.
Asus PG35V 3440x1440. Using Displayport. Can you explain how the displayport connections relates to low FPS? I do get a signal, it's working fine. Video works fine, it's just games where FPS are tanking. But as a caution I borrowed my brother's DP cable, and sure enough it's the same issue. I don't think Displayport signal affects the FPS.

What are your cpu and gpu temperatures during those games and benchmarks?

Displayport offers several link speeds that devices have to negotiate.
If the link is negotiated slower than expected, then the ability to carry resolution and frame rate are affected.
The quality of the cable plays a role.
Link renegotiation can happen at any time.

Around the 70c mark peaking at 82c. I can imagine throttling, but that's the general temps I've always had from cards. This card is probably cooler than my 2080Ti

I get that, and it's a working good quality able that is able to deliver 200Mhz. My resolution hasn't been affected. I can understand that the frames per second wouldn't change, but it can affect the number of fps being sent. I can appreciate what you're suggesting. But I've tried two cables and the same result

Yup. Just explaining my theory. Was hoping it would be a cheap fix.
That's all.
I appreciate the input. One thing I didn't try was trying my GPU on my brother's machine. And lo and behold, it was working optimally. So I tried the second PCIe slot, and wow, it actually works fine. So for now, it seems to be a faulty PCIe slot, and I will probably replace the motherboard at a later point.

There doesnt' seem to be much difference between x8 and x16 according to the GamersNexus channel, so I don't think I'm losing out performance wise on an x8 slot.

Thanks for everyone's help!
