Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0

Stock
FPS: 30.4
Score: 1272
Min FPS: 13.1
Max FPS: 57.4

Overclocked

FPS: 33.6 (+10.53%)
Score: 1407 (+10.61%)
Min FPS: 16.2 (+23.66%)
Max FPS: 62.6 (+9.06%)

System
Platform: Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1) 64bit
CPU model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz (2653MHz) x4
GPU model: AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series 9.12.0.0 (3072MB) x1

Settings
Render: Direct3D11
Mode: 2560x1440 4xAA fullscreen
Preset: Custom (API DirectX 11, Quality Ultra, Stereo 3D Disabled, Monitors Single, Anti-aliasing x4, Full Screen Yes, Resolution 2560x1440)
Quality: Ultra

Stock settings:
Core Clock: 1050mhz
Memory clock: 1500mhz

OC'd settings:
Core Clock: 1205mhz (+14.76%)
Memory clock: 1625mhz (+8.33%)
Power limit: +9% (fan @ 85%)

1205 MHz was all I could get out of my 7970 without crashing the benchmark. I successfully ran it at 1200, and then crashed several times until I determined that 1205 MHz was within 1 or 2 MHz of the absolute max, and I still had to increase power by 9% and set the fan manually to 85%, which sounds like a jet engine.

I might have been able to push the memory clock more, but didn't bother once I hit the core clock limit. Still, 1205 mhz is screaming for a GPU.

Re: Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0 Released

this just a way to benchmark your own system or is it a game engine?

It's a benchmark thing with some absolutely amazing eye candy. Give it the appropriate settings and launch it, then click "benchmark" at the top left from within the engine.

It will run all 18 scenes and then spit out what I posted.

My first post was at stock settings. The 7970 overclocks like a beast, and I am currently finding my highest stable OC and then planning to show the difference.

Updated my benchmark. A 14.76% overclock on air (1205mhz!) yielded a ~10.5% increase in FPS and a ~10.6% increase in benchmarking score. Not shabby.

Awesome eye candy in that by the way. Also, it looks as though the software didn't detect my CPU overclock, running at 4.0ghz.

Yeah, my CPU is definitely limiting my rig, no doubt about it at this point.




I've included the Excel file for this. If anyone wants, they can fill in their own info and upload a screen grab or the results.

I'm getting Excel telling me the file is corrupt. Might be my Office 2013 that's the problem though.

Okay, good now.

Maybe I'll try to push a little higher over clock and see what happens.

Break 1k MHz!

Also make sure you set AA to 8x. I cheated in my first post, but I went back and re-ran the test at the Extreme HD preset (changing only the resolution when I ran it at 1440p).

lol...I read about a few people pushing this card to 1,000mhz at 1.1v

That makes me nervous as hell.

Are you overvolting at all to hit 925? Go up until it starts crashing the benchmark, then nudge the voltage up until it either stops crashing or you feel uncomfortable with the temps. Then dial back the clockspeed if necessary. It doesn't hurt to force the fan to 85% or higher while running the test. :P

lol I just bumped the voltage up to 1.088 and tried a 975mhz core and it starting artifacting and crashed.

No dice.

Maybe a 1.1v would do the trick, but that's completely maxed at that point.

I need to get me a 680 :/

Damn, you really took a performance hit with 8xAA enabled.

Anything over 24fps is not noticeable.

Ran another one after Disabling ULPS. Same score. I did not expect a performance increase but figured I'd check.

Imagine X-fired 7970's on X79,

I'll OC my cards in a bit and do it again to see the difference. I just recently installed X-fire though so I figure i'll give it some time and make sure it's stable before I start playing with clocks.

You're running 7970 Crossfire? Just noticed that.

I'll set up eyefinity and run one in 5760 x 1080 in a few hours. Make my poor cards cry.

Man, those 7950s are insane. I edged a new personal high--1127, by edging my 7970 to 1215 core / 1635 memory, but it took a +12% overvolt, which had me worried.



I think I just need a new CPU, the x58 chipset is getting old.

Just wanted to give you guys a good laugh. Weak system, PCIeX1 graphics slot, and a 5570. And this is with AA disabled.

Oh yeah, I'm not a gamer.

So the eyefinity testing will have to wait. I did some playing around last night and I am having issues getting the cards to run higher than 70% when I turn on eyefinity and use unigine. I'm going to do a fresh driver install and see what happens.
