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.

no, I'm running 7950's cross-fired currently.

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.

New best for me. Overclocked both cards to 1125mhz, and 1400 mhz memory.




And on Xtreme3d setting

Well seems there's still a difference at 1680x1050 with no AA and 8x AA.

Just updated to 13.2 beta 6. Looks like AMD fixed some stuff.

That's a really beefy GPU with a very small resolution..

This shit is making me drool in anticipation of my new setup.

It should all be here within 2 weeks. When I get it set up I'll tweak a little and run a benchmark on the 3570k/CrossFire 7870 setup.

Like Bart Scott would say, "CAN'T WAIT!"

Yeah that 680 is not ever going to break a sweat at 1680x1050.

Yeah I know, it's still cool to run it to see what I get.

New benchmark with a new CPU--i7-3770K @ 4.4 GHz. It's a 13.7% improvement in something heavily dependent on the GPU.

I ran it a bunch right after it came out, but I didn't save any screenies. Here's a text version of what I got.

Single EVGA GTX 680 Superclocked+ (GPU turbo up to 1175 MHz, memory - stock @ 1552 MHz/6208 MHz effective, 310.70 driver), i7-980X @ 4.24 GHz. Extreme HD preset

Initial run, no tweaks: 1824
Stock speeds, fan maxed (prevents slight turbo throttling @ 70+ C): 1831
Stock GPU, +50 MHz RAM offset: 1853
Stock GPU, +100 MHz RAM offset: 1869
Stock GPU, +150 MHz RAM offset: 1884
Stock GPU, +200 MHz RAM offset: 1903
Stock GPU, +250 MHz RAM offset: 1914
Stock GPU, +300 MHz RAM offset: 1930
+75 MHz GPU offset, +300 MHz RAM offset: 1979

The +75 GPU offset required me to peg the voltage at the highest setting, 1.175v. Any GPU speed higher than that resulted in a crash. The card waffled on its own between 1.1625v and 1.175v during the run, making it crash. +70 MHz was fine with auto voltages though. The RAM showed no indication of stopping, but I figured a 300 MHz base (1.2 GHz effective) bump was plenty for now.

I also ran it on two other PCs, my HTPC and my spare PC. Here's the HTPC:

A8-3870K @ 3.3 GHz, integrated Radeon HD 6550D @ 900 MHz GPU (50% overclock ), DDR3-1866, Catalyst 13.1, Extreme HD preset: 218

And the spare PC...:

Single GTX 460 1 GB (835 MHz GPU, memory - stock @ 950 MHz/3.8 GHz effective, 310.70 driver), Opteron 185 @ 2.8 GHz, Extreme HD preset aside from resolution (1680x1050 monitor): 933

If I have time, I'll run it again tomorrow with updated drivers. I'll grab proper screenshots if I do, so I won't have to write this unreadable mess again.
