I was hoping to get at least 6K PPD each, looking that I'm doing 6.4K PPD with my 8800 GTS G92 with OC, but didn't work out well. The 9800 GT at stock values - 600/1500/900 - was getting around 3.7K PPD. Than the nightmare started when I tried to OC the cards. I found some reviews like "Gigabyte 9800GT 787/1863/1075" so I went for it!!!
Resuming the story...
my actual values
Card PCIe 1 = 684/1579/900
Card PCIe 2 = 714/1618/932
PPD: 4,411.91 per card
I was always an ATI guy. So I can handle OC, BIOS mod, etc... very well. But with nVidia the only tool I'm using is RivaTuner.
PLEASE I NEED SUGGESTIONS TO A BETTER OC FOR THE 9800GT. EVEN GPU OVER VOLTAGE IS WELCOME IF NECESSARY.
I got so pissed with all that, so just to get things better I'm folding now with my Gamer rig too (2x HD 3870X2). FahMon says 22K PPD total - check attached pic.
Something is not right... I have 2 8800gt that are oc to 800 on
the cores and they get in the 5000 to 6000 range. Is it possible the ATI drivers aree not completely cleaned off? Maybe there is a conflict?
