Atomic 3DMark & Game Benchmark Rankings

Recommended Posts

justo what ram are you running? i just gave firestrike a run at 4.2ghz with ht disabled and your physics score is only 7.6% higher

http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/3407169/fs/3412782

 

 

I got some Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866 stuff at the moment. The 1866 stuff is good value finally....plus it's red to match.

 

I was just saying to Gamble, this computer is meant to do everything, so not just games. I can feel the difference without the extra cores and have noticed some things here and there that perform worse or have that split second delay to them. I'll be getting the 4790K version which is clocked higher by default which I prefer rather than having to OC my own stuff (all my gear has to be on 24/7 and be able to be resold later).

The below is with my ram @ 1600 7-8-8-1t, cpu @ 4.2 HT disabled and the gpu @ 1400mhz/7000:

 

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/4975032

 

Says time measurement error over and over dunno why... Tried a restart too but when I started 3dmark there was an update, I did the update and since has been giving the Time measurement error... Not sure if it will give that error once I pump it back up to 4.8 and the ram back to 2400 though.

 

Edit:

 

So I upped it to 4.8ghz / 2400 on the ram, gpu 1500/7500mhz and dont get the time measurement error.. so strange! You would thing that the lower setting would not give the error over higher clocks:

For those interested, the peak watts are below for this card 4.8ghz / 2400 on the ram, gpu 1500/7500mhz:

Gtx 970:

3dMark11: 1st scene 341w

3dMark13: combined scene 353w

(will run one at the 4.7ghz like the below for compare)

Clock: 4.7ghz

 

Titan 1215mhz 3500mhz 1.250v

3dMark13: combined scene 456w

3dMark11: 1st scene 491w

 

290x 1215mhz 5400mhz 1.3v (+200)

3dMark13: combined scene 539w

3dMark11: 1st scene 529w

 

290x 1215mhz 5400mhz 1.250v (+150)

There you go Gamble :) I dunno if that's enough info (it has my username and system specs in the report).

 

I'm not overly impressed with the GTX980 + i5-4690K combo. It barely gets more than my previous rig (i7-3770K + GTX780Ti).

 

The i5-4690K is running at 4.2GHz and the GTX980 is set to 1400MHz.

To make life easier for the thread owner you should post your score like this:

<Score> - Link to Submission - <CPU> @ <Frequency>(Air/Water) / <GPU> <Core>/<Memory>(Air/Water)

Example: Mine from above: 12233 - http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3077054 - 3570k @ 4.5ghz(a) / MSI GTX 980 1370mhz/7512mhz(a)

This ^. It makes things a whole lot easier for me, as I then can simply add your results to the OP, rather than having to decipher your system specs and format them accordingly :-)

 

I've added your 3DMark submission to the OP, but it is incomplete. Could you please double check what I have written for you, and tidy things up for me? Cheers

 

11757 justo316 - i5 4690K @ 4.2GHz(a) - GTX 980 @ 1300c/????m(a)

Sorry, RAM was running stock at 7000MHz

 

New score for new graphics cards....

14303 - http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3431097 - i5-4690K @ 3.9MHz(Air) / GTX 970 SLI 1400/7500(Air)

After getting my Gene-Z build back up and running I've cranked out what I think to be the absolute limit of all my hardware.

BLK @ 101x52.
CPU 5.252Ghz @ 1.5v.
Memory @ 2154Mhz @ 6-6-6-20 1.5v (ram can go 2200+ but no point extra adds nothing).
GPU @ 1542Mhz core @ +0.25v, 8208Mhz memory.

 

Firestrike: 11095 - http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3436789 - i5-2500K @ 5.252Ghz(Water) / MSI GTX970 @ 1542/8208(Air)


Yay 11K club!

Corsair Vengence Pro, check the cpu memory. It took a bit of trial and error but it booted ran the tests @ those timings so I didn't question it haha.

So Dasa I was doing a bit of research on how to get this board to support all 4 of my ram dims. As it refused to work in duel channel mode or have any modules installed in A1 & B1 slots. And I found a post as to what might explain the crazy ram timing I got.

Turns out there is a bios bug which reports the incorrect timing by a factor of -3 on the main one and -6 on the final timing. This means when I thought I was setting it to 6-6-6-20, but it was actually at 9-9-9-26. So your honest surprise (and mine) initially was correct in thinking this wasn't right or was some kind of super amazing ram.

Both issues have been solved gladly. I had to install a single stick into slot A2 only > boot into bios > manually set the exact rated timings & voltage of the ram > re-boot > wait until it boots once again > shut down > then install 2 modules into B1 & B2 only > boot once again > get into windows > shut down > then install the other 2 modules into A1 & A2.

Once that was done in that order i could finally boot with all 4 dims @ there rated speeds (and above) while also getting the correct timing reporting.


Sooo i redid the bench tests to see how much of a difference duel channel + default timings made vs 8gb single channel incorrect lower timings.

And it was a small gain, but still a gain.

Firestrike: 11129 - http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3440112 - i5 2500K @ 5.252Ghz(Water) / MSI GTX970 @ 1542/8208(Air) (desktop screen cap)

Firestrike X: 5774 - http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3440148 - i5 2500K @ 5.252Ghz(Water) / MSI GTX970 @ 1542/8208(Air) (desktop screen cap)

Firestrike U: 3030 - http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3440180 - i5 2500K @ 5.252Ghz(Water) / MSI GTX970 @ 1542/8208(Air) (desktop screen cap)


Overall it's about a 0.3-0.5% gain across the board. The biggest difference came from the CPU physics score where it added an extra 450-550 points.

Dasa did another run @ 4.2 HT disabled with my ram at 2000 - 9-10-10-24 1t : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/5013582 Yea must be something with my ram timings giving the time measurement error. My ram likes 2400 at 10 or its freaks out it seems lol. That was as close to the timings and ram settings as I could get. The gpu was ran at stock 1342/7000 but had the power limit up so that theres not flucuation in the core. If I dont up the power limit it goes from 1329 to 1342.

 

Modz I saw those Ram timings and almost collapsed! Nice run with 11k+!! Really I love my cpu but I should have kept the 2500k, it would still be able to do everything that I do with my computer which is gaming mostly, some light photo editing, etc... I did have fun delidding the 3770k though as it was fun project!

 

Justo getting two 970's probably was probably better for the feel of the upgrade over your previous parts and it looks awesome in your case ;)

aww its not super amazing ram but still decent cant get mine to boot below 9-10-10 1t even with an extra .15v even though it does for a lot of people maybe its just my 2600k limit though not that extra vccio helps much

450-550 points? there is only ~100 point difference between your links which seems low for the timing difference on the ram

 

that looks about right gamble

with your ram at 2400 your cpu is over 10% faster and with it close to the same its ~10% and with it at 1600 c7 its only ~2% so if you had 1600 c11 ram my 2600k would be a fair bit faster than your 3770k at the same clock speed :)

 

wonder if a 2600k could beat a 4790k clock for clock if it had shit ram

Yea Im glad we did those tests Dasa it shows that Ram does matter by up to 10% in a system... dammit I want 6-6-6-20-1t timings now as anything less sounds lame lol (I know Modz got it fixed up to the 9s)

---

So, I ran my CPU/GPU at the following so I could directly compare the peak power draw from previous card Ive had to this one. A few strange things Ive noticed. If I crank my fans to full speed, the peak is still the same even compared to low. Im talkin within 2 watts. Another thing is that 3dmark11 use to always draw more peak power, not with this GPU, but there has been some updates with FireStrike so Im not sure if that has something to do with it.

 

I ran at the below OC to try to make up the ground that it loses to the other cards since they were OC too. Its an OC vs an OC so it not definitive by any stretch, but it gives an idea of what others might gain or loss if you have the below card with healthy OC's/voltages. This is only the Peak not the average either.... Most of the time the system is running around 300w with the OC below (box only from the wall)

 

CPU @ 4.7ghz

Gtx 970: 1400/7300mhz @ 1.2v

3dMark13: combined scene 326w (130w less than Titan, 177w less than 290x @ 1.25v)

3dMark11: 1st scene 320w (171w less than Titan, 188w less than 290x @ 1.25v)

if there v controlled fans not pwm or just a straight swap from 12v to 5v then the fan controller will be offset the extra power use the lower the fans speed the more power the controller will suck

when I had my mcp355 running of the fan controller the mb temp probe would go higher and higher the lower I set its speed

 

building a photoshop pc for gramps at the moment i5 4590, asus h97m plus,16g, 256g 850 pro, 2x5tb for raid1, seasonic g360, nanoxia ds2

to my surprise it actually has settings for running higher ram speeds than 1600 in the bios that I may have to try out who knows maybe my generic Samsung sticks will go over 2133 c9 in this mb

yea your right I forgot I put a fan controller in since those runs thx! So, Im getting sick of the noise of fan lately, for whatever reason its bothers me. I went to disconnect 3 of the 6 fans since my temps seem really good with the gpu off the loop. My stupid ass disconnects the pump thinking it was a fan, put the cover back on and guess what, blue screen... At first Im like what is going on till I realize what I did and a few blue screens later cuz I kept making sure the disconnected fans cord were not grounding... plus I was messing with my ram timings a bunch so I was thinking my ram was messed or something, I should have known or check the temp on the cpu in bios since it never made it to windows... ah well, if I would have broke something the wife would have blamed me for doing it on purpose ha!

well that sucks I cant test ram speed on the h97 4590 as the 2x8g 1600c9 kit in in refuses to post over 1600mhz in both systems even with relaxed timings and my overclockable Samsung kit refuses to post at any speed in it

I was meaning the CPU Physics score, not overall score. sorry. It went from between 9k to 9.5k just from running duel channel and the correct timings. Which in turn only made up to a 0.5% (100) increase in the overall score.

Just checked your score gamble to compare to mine. Wow... I think I have even more respect for my old 2500K now.

 

You get a cpu score of 12.7K@4.8Ghz, While I only get 9.5K@5.2Ghz. We both get 11.1K overall, even know your GPU is slightly lower clocked, your CPU evens it out. :D

ya no kidding that the 2500k still is more than great, I mean I have 8 threads going and when I crank it up this is what I get cpu score 13.3k @ 5ghz and 1525/7500mhz I get only a bit more total score 11377:

 

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3111528

 

Dasa and I did a few with HT off, if you clock your cpu/gpu to the same with the ram timings I bet it would be dead even. Most games dont use over 4 threads too. For gaming its a total wash, Sandy line still holds their own totally. And Sandy OC's so well, Ive seen many struggle to get past 4.8 on Ivy plus the heat issues.

 

Theres more of these but for gaming really no point in upgrading, even against Haswell:

3DMark, 3DMark11, and 3DMark Vantage are currently on sale at 80% off on Steam. I've grabbed the two older benchmarks, and will be using all three soon to compare my GTX 760 to a newly acquired HD 7870 :-)

just tried comparing 2133 9-10-10-24-1t with 1600 11-11-11-28-1t with the 2600k@4.3ghz ht enabled and im only seeing ~1-2% difference in the physics\combined score

so im not sure why you were seeing a difference and im not

i was a little surprised that 3dmark was showing such a large difference for you since it uses so little ram but im equally surprised that now its showing so little for me

I guess that was a typical Nobody promise haha. I've sadly only been lurking around here recently; have been flat out with school this year, However, of recent I've been getting that itch to tinker with my PC again, and I'd really like to see how far I can push my 2500k with lowish volts, and my (back then) newly acquired GTX 980 :-D

Well, here it is. Not the highest I've gotten with this PC, but I'm still figuring out what I can tweak. I haven't overclocked much since I had a Phenom II and my HD 5870 :-/
