    Two AMD cards may work but not three with BETA 5. I am having the same difficulty I was with 13.2. The first three tests in Fire Strike show awesome FPS, but then the last one (combination) drops down to 4 to 5 FPS:(

    With two 7970's I do not have this problem...

    The last test has very low FPS on ALL systems. It is ridiculously heavy both on CPU and GPU.

    It is also most complicated one and I wouldn't be surprised if it took a few driver versions to get it working right with 3 or 4 GPUs.
    HammerON says thanks.

    Don't expect great overclocking results with BETA 5...
    I didn't:(

    Really? Works the same for me. Anyways the combined test is stupidly demanding... the extreme combined test runs at like 12 fps on overclocked 7970 crossfire :nutkick:

    Singlecard gets about 100 more points now in Fire-whatsit, so load is a bit higher, for sure.


    Still getting same OC here too though.

    only thing I didn't do was set the drivers to performance :p

    But need to redo the paste on the die or try another tube, opened a new one seemed as thick as the older one

    Sorry, will redo tomorrow natr0n. Was just throwing out it there as I saw no below 6xx series posted. Don't actually care if I get posted... but I'll redo it.

    OK, just for giggles I decided to punish my system a bit and bench it pushed to its limit. Here's my updated results (dunno if you want to add them as a new entry or replace my old entries with these - up to you):

    Normal Results (Multi-GPU section):
    BigMack70 | 184442 | 32227 | 14137 | Radeon HD 7970 x2 | Intel Core i7-2600k | 1240/1850 | 5100 MHz

    Maxed Out/Uber (Paid) Result:
    BigMack70 | X | X | 7352 | Radeon HD 7970 x2 | Intel Core i7-2600k | 1240/1850 | 5100 MHz

    Links for validation:
    Ice Storm
    Cloud Gate
    Fire Strike
    Fire Strike Extreme

    Might try to push my CPU to 5.2 GHz at some point for a run but right now it's not very happy with me above 5.1 GHz...

    I understand the overall sentiment of your post about testing things appropriately, but you are wrong about the cloudgate test - it's just flat out too heavily weighted towards your CPU.

    Why? Because unlike Ice Storm, it is NOT a CPU-bound test. Yet it is scored like one.

    A heavy CPU overclock counts nearly the same as a second graphics card in terms of the score, despite the fact that the physics score only increases about ~30% from the overclock while the graphics score increases nearly 100% from the second card.

    That's just dumb.

    Here's my rig running as a stock 2600k + two stock 7970s (925/1375).

    And here's the same rig in cloud gate running a 4.8 GHz 2600k + one stock 7970 (925/1375).

    If you're going to score it like a CPU bound test, you'd better make it be CPU-bound first. When a second card DOUBLES your fps in the graphics test while the CPU overclock gives you a 30% boost in the physics test, the score should increase significantly more for the former than the latter.

    (P.S. Ice Storm indeed IS CPU-bound on this type of GPU muscle, in case anyone was wondering...)
    revin says thanks.
