Atomic 3DMark & Game Benchmark Rankings

Recommended Posts

Very interesting, my Bloomfield rig with similar settings pulled a peak of 880 from the wall in metro I think, could sandy use that much less

 

Edit: okay I looked up my post.

 

4.4ghz ht on 1.425vcore or so

Gpus @882 1138mv draws 880w peak

 

 

Time to try 1.5v 4.6 ghz with 900 cores!!

sandy and a few other little things that use a bit less power than your rig

2600k auto is 1.32v but vdrop goes down to 1.265 under heavy load

scythe gt fans only use 0.049-0.083 amp vs those monsters you run that would probably use 10x as much

mcp355 uses a bit less than mcp655

80+ platinum psu makes a difference

 

i wonder if it would use much more power if i ran a lower res

 

 

edit

just realised i ran metro in dx10 when testing power use then

 

here is dx11 with dof and tess at 2560x1440 and for some reason with the swap from dx10 to dx11 peak power use dropped by ~100w where as before it would jump up a lot between the tank the last mg now it only goes up a bit so with dx11 the power use throughout the test is more constant

900\2050 1150mv

614w peak

Average Framerate: 35.00

Max. Framerate: 138.73

Min. Framerate: 11.20

Thx! Going from x3 720 unlocked to x4, to the SB gained 2000+ pts in 3dmark11 with the HD 5850's. I was aiming for 75XX or to get close to the top single cards, Im happy with that result.

I'M BACK!!

after all my problems with dodgy hardware, and dead components (.....may we never speak of this again.....) I have returned with another, more expensive rig (in my tag) - unfortunately, I didn't end up with (another) gem 2500K, @ 1.45v it doesn't appear to want to go above 4.8G - oh well.

anyway here's my first 3DMark06 attempt:

watches tumbleweed rolling down the street.......

after a further play around, I managed to wring a few extra Mhz out the CPU - upping the BCLK gives some strange results, it appears that 102 is the sweet spot, 103 was actually significantly slower, 104 produced a BSOD running 3DMark 11, 102.2 caused it to just seize up running 3DMark.....102 and all is well

very nice clock speed and score poison

i think i just experienced a similar bug to you in heaven but i know tessellation was working

score 2470 fps 98.1 with one 7970 at 1210\1846

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y83/dasa0...70heavenbug.jpg

pc locked up 2sec after saving the result...

thats very strange. I might try doing 4-5 consecutive heaven runs on the weekend or something and see if it does happen to one of the results.

very nice heaven score though :)

did you find you had to alter anything else, or just the BCLK? I've tried changing mine to 100.5/101/102 etc. and it doesn't boot at anything but 100.00. :(

nice score mate, good to see more contributions. i think you'll find there is limited gain from overclocking the 2500k though. My 3dMark11 score only increased by about 500 points going from 4.6 to 5.2.

all I've altered is the BCLK, the multiplier, and the RAM settings, all else is on auto - I tried doing it with manual settings, but the BIOS doesn't seem to like that - corrupted a perfectly good windows install - appears to love being in charge, I guess.....

yeh, I was actually quite surprised when my comp booted and loaded windows with a BCLK of 104 - pity it wasn't stable. my first 2500K didn't like you touching the BCLK at all - like yours

I've been getting better results than what you quote - just the small jump in overclock cited here produced more than that.....

from my experience with 2x 2500K's, they seem to vary quite a bit in overclocking headroom - BCLK, multiplier and voltages required all differ quite a bit - still, they're a tasty piece of kit, without a doubt the best bang for buck Intel's ever produced.....I'd even go so far as to say the best bang for buck ever produced.

yeh, I'm pretty happy with it

thanks for that mate. looks like i just have a cpu that doesn't like BCLK change. I suppose i will forgive it, given its a decent overclocker anyway.

 

I should have rephrased that as to limited gain in 3dmark 11. From your 4.8 to 4.9ghz results, your 3dmark11 score only went up 60 points, so hypothetically with a 300-400mhz increase in CPU clock speed, score would only improve by another 300ish points at most. I agree they are most certainly a great value piece of kit, up to 5.2ghz+ stable quad core for ~$215 - with warranty and an overclocking replacement plan.

is this site still being maintained? (hears echo....)

It seems to get updated every now and then.

 

I've got a new score too.

so, nobody takes any interest any more?

that's sad

the Tech sections hardly move these days.....like the ForSale section

me remembers the 'good old days' when this place used to really jump.

what happened?

This gets updated every now and again, considering one person is maintaining it it's not suh a big problem, just wait, it will be updated soon :).

 

Benchmarking was popular a few years back, but it doesn't seem to be as popular any more. Take the competition i ran before christmas with 3DMark 2001SE. 2 entries for a 3 week competition....Needless to say those two entreis came in the top 2 :P

Benchmarking doesn't seem to be as popular here anyway, but it is still very popular elsewhere on the internet.

 

Its only really as active as we make it, so I got another new score :D

It was only updated 3 weeks ago ><

 

I don't update super regularly because I'd only have to update 2 days later when they improve their scores..

 

I'll do it now.

Okay all done, and that pair of 560's is pretty quick! =O With a 2600k that would be closer to 10k!

 

And poison, 10.6k single GPU is mad, that is all I can say ......

 

Nobody, thanks for submitting some legacy hardware =D

Thanks Morgoth I managed to nail top spot on OCAU single card too.. for now...

My 2600k does 5.0 easy but because my RAM only does 1600 @ 5.0, scores are actually 50-100 points lower than the above. :/

Might need to really push it if when someone beats this.

nice score mate, good to see more contributions. i think you'll find there is limited gain from overclocking the 2500k though. My 3dMark11 score only increased by about 500 points going from 4.6 to 5.2.

ive found with mine u to see any real world gain going past 4.6 u also need 1600mhz ram, im running the 1333 cas7 F3 X ripjaws and going past 4.6, even upto 5ghz i see less than 200 points difference, but uping the ram to 1600 and beyond then i see a noticeable difference, my single 3dmark11 single GTX460 score didnt break 4k unless i had cpu at 4.6 and ram at 1600. when i ran 5ghz and 1333 i only got 3990 or 4005 (with gpus at default clocks). I found across multiple benchmarks that 4.6, ram 1600/cas8, and gpu at peak OC that there was a clear sweet spot for performance. I also found 4.8, and 1600 gave less score and a drop in fps over all. the 4455 3dmark single gpu score i managed has since been beaten by a score of 4502 but i forgot to post the link here and lost it. :(

 

If ur running 1866 or 2k+ ram i feel that's the only time u will benefit from going beyond 4.6 especially if ur running previous gen gpus that depend a lot more on the cpu.

 

@osama_bin_athlon

could u run a single card for 3dmark11 performance. id like to compare the difference between your system and mine since they r relatively similar.
