Intel Nehalem Turbo-charges Radeon HD4850 Benchmark

Intel Nehalem Posts Impressive CPU Scores with 3D Benchmarks

The rather lucky Taiwanese team of Tom's Hardware got their hands on an Intel Bloomfield engineering sample that has a clock-speed of 2.93 GHz, running on a Intel X58 chipset based motherboard made by Foxconn called Renaissance to evaluate a Gainward Radeon HD4850 sample. System details are provided below.

Of course, the benchmark lacks the advantage NVIDIA PhysX gives to the CPU score in 3DMark Vantage, but for a CPU alone, it is a more than decent score. The system secured P7182 at default settings with a CPU score of 17966. In 3DMark06, it churned out 12786 3DMarks with a CPU score of 5183. In the Crysis CPU benchmark, scores of 33.70 and 18.29 were recorded at 1280x1024 resolution with no anti-aliasing.Source: Tom's Hardware

Dont compare a single core + ht to a dual core
compare your Dual to dual core + ht (nahelem ARchitecture)

ok got the point that tere are individual scores and that the GPU dont effect CPU score BUT, i still say that they used a bottle necked settup. (no need to re-telling me that the gpu dont effect the cpu in benchmarks lol)

bdw i'm a "him", (if you took a look at the profile... i'm male)

so what is bottlenecking the system?
the cant run triplle channel atm

The undeveloped motherboard and unsupported software seem to currently be the the bottleneck, although I have now idea what mattgal was referring to. Also guys, take into account this is using ~.84vcore (based on other threads I've seen) to put up these numbers. You talk, core for core, volt for volt, watt for watt, this thing crushes the penryn w/o even being optimized yet.

i dont like ATi + nvidia GTX280 or GTX280 sli or even TRI-SLI is LOADS better than that thing! atleast a HD4870 !
hey look how little my cpu score changed from DUAL 3850s to a single 6200TC 128mb obviously VGA's dont affect the cpu score to much! the slight difference is because i had Trillian/FF running in the background
