@ athlonite you want me to post that? its lower than your previous score
Dunno if this has been posted, but:
My initial score of 5141 was with the CPU @ 3.3GHz with no HT and GPU at 750/1500/1800. My next run was at 4Ghz with HT and 775/1500/1800. I gained 250 points total. Left the CPU @ 4Ghz and jumped another 25 on the core/shaders and gained ~150 points. So the jump from 4 cores no HT 3.3Ghz to 4 cores + HT @ 4Ghz was about 100 points.
I guess its nice to have a what so far appears to be a GPU test unlike vantage (which does scale nicely on the GPU) and 06.
Before my gaming session tonight I went for a little moar power.

Got a gaming session tonight but I will see if the cpu @3.8GHz and the GPU shader domain @2GHz with a little bump in the video memory ( which surprisingly shows up in this benchmark ) will get me that 7k. The morning will tell.
My memory increase from 1800 to 1835 showed zero improvement... I wonder if its not bottlenecked by hte memory at my gpu clocks?
Yeah i was very surprised since the benchmark hardly uses any memory. I think the GPU clocks are so high that it helps it fetch the data that it is there which would be a crazy bottle neck since its GDDR5. Interesting I'll test further in the morning.
Um no don't thanks
erm oc the cpu to 3.4GHz and this is what i get
I used the original 5770 driver first time and it done the same thing. The current and new Catalyst worked fine, and has all the options the old one did.
AMD Phenom 940 @ 3.73Ghz
ATI 5870 1046 GPU / 1052 memory
You can hit 5k if you raise that CPU clock to 4.1, 4.2.
Thanks Moonpig - might try it when I get home.
Here is what EVGA has to say about the SLI issue:
Sorry I doubt about that..I got P5806 with my i7 950 @ 4.025GHz and was able to gain only 12 points,with P5818 @ 4.209GHz
i crash during the physics test pretty sure its cause i have the physx drivers installed with no compatible card.... hmm guess it gives me an excuse to use my old 8600gt as a physics card.
This setting has worked for some trying to run SLI, but apparently causes flickering problems:
It has already been pointed-out by a few that this bench is more GPU dependant and higher CPU overclocks won't help your score much. Haven't messed around with 3Dmark 11 too much yet to verify myself...
I get a stutter every 3-6 seconds. Tried different CPU, GPU, Memory, PCIe, HT and other settings and no fixes. If I could fix it I would gain big time, as it jumps down 10+ FPS for a half second or so.
Thats exactly what I was trying to tell our fella dir_d
no not at all, it does not use physX.
If you crashed, it means your CPU isnt stable enough to run the test.
Personally i'm glad the damn test is GPU limited - thats what its MEANT to do. show you how good of a GAMING system you have, and whaddya know: with the exception of a few game titles, we're all GPU limited before we're CPU limited (at least until we start running SLI and crossfire)
I can runt he physics at 3.73/226Mhz HT, but at 227 same voltage i get a black screen. The application doesn't crash but it never runs either so, not stable for this.
Its a bit off topic,but dont you feel like they (guys who deliver new hardware) lied to us (guys who buy new hardware) again? I mean do you remember when the DX11 was launched?and all the relevant new hardware?all the hype about how "things will finally run superfast" and "everything will be much prettier"? Yet both red and green team are allready in the second generation of their DX11 line of product and it makes me angry when I see that a bench like this or games such Metro 2033 will force your £350 + VGA card on its knees....with not a very good framerate
Seems to be CPU dependent on AMD rigs because we can get the physics score high like Intel rigs.
blame the game devs. they'd rather sacrifice 20% of the performance for one shiny little new effect.
Oh look, tesselation which can increase performance... lets over use it so its a performance hit instead. AWESOME.
That piece of shit Alien vs. Predator makes my rig look like its 4 years old damn it!!!Just one example..At least if these "DX11" titles would really look so much better,but often they just fail there too.
Just got home and see Mark11 is here.
hmmm I wonder
Time to run a few
This Bench is so fucking flawed it makes me VOMIT!!!
Ok 1st run stock settings.. gave me THIS
2nd run clocked the cpu and gpu and got THIS
And Finally i ran this test... It's the same as the 2nd test and I got THIS
I think FutureMark need's to get there shit together!
And just a side note. I ran all tests 3 times and got roughly the same scores!!!
