    Just thought I'd post this up. Pretty quick and dirty OC with this Sparkle GTX 460 I picked up from MicroCenter a couple of hours ago. Going to test stability with some Starcraft II now.

    not bad only 7k behind a 470. It also depends on the cpu used

    I thought they would score alot better than that.

    I may need to raise the prices on my GTX 285's :D

    Here we go. My RAM was holding me back. Big time. Tried to keep everything but the RAM the same. Still going.

    We'll be seeing what kinda scores this i5 650 can get with it :) Too bad there isn't a used market for these yet. W1zz tested two of them at stock in SLI. I want to know how they perform OC'ed in SLI :)

    Edit: Wee bit better with a bump of the CPU multiplier:

    Here are my results, slightly OCd CPU and GPU (note that im running the 460GTX 1GB).

    Im sure it can be improved, my first attempt at OC.

    Nice card! And your true quad is helping it out a bit too.

    Nice! They really do scale quite nicely in SLI! Got proof? Pics or it didn't happen! Blah blah blah...

    My second 4850 arrives tomorrow. I look forward to benchmarking my CF 4850 to see how it stacks up against a GTX 460.

    hmmm

    Increased the GPU clock some more and improved my results some. Memory clock untouched for now.

    [​IMG]

    edit: I see now that in the pic cpu-z reports corespeed@1980MHz and multiplier@x9. This should ofc be 3300MHz/x15. Its been lowered since computer's in idle.

    Here you go here are some examples for you to compare too....

    They are all done at clocks of....
    800/1600/2001

    Because those are clocks that I think anyone with these cards could probably achieve....

    My Specs are.... not the same as yours but closer then trying to compare it to a rig with an i7....

    Specs are...
    i5 750 @ 3.82 (When Benches were taken)
    EVGA P55 SLI
    Corsair XMS 3 1600 @ 1552 (When Benches were Taken)
    1x EVGA GTX 460 768 SC @ 800/1600/2001 (When Benches were Taken)
    1x EVGA GTX 460 768 SC @ 800/1600/2001 (When Benches were Taken)
    Corsair 850 HX PSU
    2x Patriot Warp V2 64GB Raid 0
    1x Western Digital 500 Gig Black Caviar
    CM Hyper 212+ HSF
    CM Sniper Black Edition
    Windows 7 64-bit Home - OEM

    (***Note*** I have a slight Voltage bump on these cards... not because of the testing speeds in this test but because of the overclock on these cards that I normally run.

    I also want to point out that these tests were done with the latest BIOS update from EVGA. So it is not the stock BIOS. But it does not give any performance increase to my model... only a fan Speed upgrade.)



    First Test ....
    Single GTX 460 SC @800/1600/2001 W/O PhysX enabled

    [​IMG]

    Second Test....
    Single GTX 460 SC @800/1600/2001 With PhysX enabled (**Note** This was done with second GPU as Dedicated PhysX...But I get the same scores either way I run PhysX it seems though... it doen't matter if I use the GPU I am benching or the second card.)

    [​IMG]

    Third Test....
    SLI GTX 460 SC's @800/1600/2001 W/O PhysX enabled

    [​IMG]

    Fourth and last Test.....(Unless you need more)
    SLI GTX 460 SC's @800/1600/2001 With PhysX Enabled(***Note*** PhysX was not to a dedicated card.... it was ran on Auto setting In Nvidia Control Panel... Which I found out doesn't give me an advantage either way I have it set for PhysX)

    [​IMG]

    Well bud here you go.... hopefully this should answer some of your questions of were you should be at.
    I think these benches are more realistic then the ones you might of seen other places. Because they weren't run on the absolute top of the line computer. But not a a bottom of the line either.
    So I think a GTX 460 Running at 10000 is a little low... I would think you should be more seeing around 11000 to 12000 But that is my opinion.
    I also know that in my case.... I can go way higher then these scores shown. These cards have the ability to be up in the P23000's to P24000's. Especailly when my CPU overclock is up at it's normal 4.25Ghz and the cards are running @ 880 core.

    I also want to add.... that my GPU score is usually allot higher then shown here.
    I have got GPU scores... up in the 25000's to 26000's I am pushing for 27000 but I don't think it will happen until Driver update. Of course those scores are in SLI.
    IN single mode GPU score... I have got them up to 16000 and above. Again I think I will have to wait for a Driver update to get any higher.

    These are awesome cards bud... right now I am having so much fun playing with them!


    I have told I have some really nice scores. The Person wondered though how much my CPU has to do with my scores. So I will run that tonight. I will put my CPU back to stock clocks and we will find out. I will post back later.

    most of you guys have physx enabled disable physx and watch some of the points drop. they wont drop drastically but youll see a difference for sure

    It's honestly fast enough at stock. I used to run E8500s at 5GHz, but this i5 at stock with an SSD is even faster.

    prolby the SSD that's making the difference. I just can't imagine and don't want to believe that a stock iX is better than a core2duo at those speeds. lol i at least in 3dmark06 my q6600@3.4ghz beats my bro's stock i7 920. so that makes me happy haha. Wonder the diff in vantage if we compared.

    But I don't think you're doing that chip justice by leaving it stock. It's just not meant to be :shadedshu

    I didn't :).... I mean I did but I also showed what the difference was between them. Even the ones I didn't have enabled.... I was getting some pretty decent scores bud. Still 14K on a card that is overclocked only 47 Mhz for me.....When I clock it the rest of the way we I have even more fun.
