any reason for that?
cus it 8.3 says it doest work for my hardware :S
arg i hate the dynamic fan controll in ati tray trools it wont save my settigns
i hope end this month i have my watercooling stuff done so i can hook up the gpu fan to my akasa fancontroll
Morgoth have you tried ATiTool beta0.27? and which version of riva tuner did you try?
try these morgoth
Sapphire HD 3850 AGP
ATI Catalyst 8.45
They released 8.4 for AGP first from the looks of it
yes i tryd 0.27 doest support fan controll
rivatuner i think the last one
downloading that file
after that i clock my agp bus higher and run 3dmark06
8.4 works fine but no performance increas
dunno why this is but i get lower scores now 4600-5040 3dmark06
runned it 3 times
and i have my gpu core at 770mhz ram 900mhz
did you use driver cleaner to remove ALL of the old driver?
any problems with the 8.4's?
ehh no i didt use driver cleaner
i dont see anny problems with it i only get a lower score in 3dmark06
gona reinstall it
just tested mem at 1ghz in ati tray tools rendering its realy gets hot with stock cooling :S 66c but no artifacting
use driver cleaner first then install the new 8.4's and give'er a go!
just great now ccc wont start
You really need to stop fiddlin' with the AGP bus Morgoth. Do as Intel said and use Driver Cleaner to remove all the old 'debris' from the last set of drivers.
Don't worry about OC'ing the card straight away, you'll obviously hit some issues if you do. I suggest you try it completely at stock (leaving the bus alone) and see how that goes for a while.
still using the 8.4's Morgoth?
did youre 3DM06 score go back up?
updated first post
yes i am still using 8.4
my score is 5125 3dmark06
CPU is really holding back the 3Dmark.
TBH I overclocked my CPU 2.6Ghz and increased my 3Dmark from 8965 to 9625 with my 8800GT but it made no difference in gaming.
So at the end of the day no issue.
Where's y'3850 y'big bum'end?
Morgoth, what was your 3DMark with your X1950 Pro?
I tend to jump from nVidia and ATi.
All I can say is nVidia are cheating in some games.
There little textures missing which were there with my X1950pro.
Just unimportant textures which you wouldn't notice if they were there.
Plus the chokes on the 8800GT make a high pitched chiming sound.
A few months time and i think I'll be going back to ATi.
Maybe a 3870.
I won't be buying an X2 until the micro stutter issue is fixed.
Depending on what somes first.
But I think and Xfi-Xtreme Gamer might be the go atm.
Why can't the 3850 drop in price?
£150 is just too much for me right now.
Morgoth, did you run all your tests with the same settings. As in, you X1950 set up was exactly the same when you installed the 3850? You didn't have a higher OC with the 3850 or anything that would alter the scores at all.
Just I really want an apples to apples comparison. I know I won't be able to resist and I highly doubt they'll drop in price anytime soon.
my cpu is at same clock and i had my x1950pro overclocked
Morgoth : if you had your RAM running faster you would prolly notice a rather sizeable increase in your 3DM06 score, your low RAM clocks are hindering your throughput
have you tried to OC with just 2 stix? you never gave me the info off of your RAM yet either but i will assume that they are hynix D43 which should clock OK with some volts (2.8) but dont expect anything fantasic with the timings, 3/4/4/8 for shure if youre lucky 2.5/3/3/7.
mine used to do 220mhz 2.5/3/3/7 and 230mhz 3/4/4/8 (OCZvalue RAM with the copper HSF's) both using 2.85v
remember the old p4's loved memory bandwith, not so much timings
