Good Score^^

We'll have to see what kind of a boost I get with my new 2600K when it arrives, the pci-e slots will be at 8X/8X so we'll have to see.

Thanks Slay, good to see you too brochacho. Sounds good man, I cant wait. Hopefully AMD will have an official fix for quadfire 3dmark11 issues by then, as the 11.1a hotfix doesnt even have it listed in the release notes. Also be aware that all Intel P67 motherboards have been recalled due to faulty SATA II control/chipset.

Much lower CPU speed, lower clocks on the GPU too, and you score 3,500 more?! Yeah that's confusing..

Broken drivers, less memory, no service pack improvements, etc. Hold on, I'll post a link as Futuremark officially acknowledges that Quadfire is broken on some drivers. I also tried using the 10.5 and 10.5a drivers with still low numbers, now I have 11.1a hotfix drivers which are the best drivers I've seen for my cards so far...

http://www.3dmark.com/3dmark11/faq/

Q: My Quad-Crossfire setup is showing less than 100% GPU utilization, what’s up?

A: 3DMark 11 automatically takes advantage of multi-GPU configurations (SLI/Crossfire). Current (10.11/10.12) AMD/ATI drivers do not to appear support Quad Crossfire with 3DMark 11. Reportedly Catalyst 10.5e drivers may work. Please contact AMD for driver support and/or updated crossfire profiles.

Also please notice that the CPU scores are linear between frequencies, and while the GPU scores went up between drivers, the CPU scores (Physics test and part of the Combined test) went down between frequency changes..

CPU at 4.7ghz

Physics Score
13156

Combined Score
8757

CPU at 4.2ghz

Physics Score
12129

Combined Score
8204

Lol yeah I know about the driver problems, it's just amazing that they were THAT severe. I'll take out your old score seeing as you're using the same main hardware, just leave your new one there.

I hate to beat a dead dog to death again, but ATi/AMD arent exactly known for their driver writing prowess . AMD seems to be turning things around with these recent drivers though so here's hoping. The scary part is that with my OC clocks and hardware, I'm still not where I'm supposed to be with scoring...

P15,299 | cq842000 | i7 980X@4.6ghz | 2x HD5970 1030mhz/1250mhz | W7 x64 | Orb




I reworked all my voltages, pushed my CPU freq up, fed the PCIe +2mhz, increased the NB to 4ghz, installed ATi CCC 11.4 beta + 11.4 CAP1.... and the numbers started flowing. I'm now trying to stay away from brute force on the motherboard/CPU voltages, and instead I find myself dropping voltages where they need to be low while increasing them where they were way off....an adventure to be sure.

Great Score

Nvidia Drivers have really crapped out lately. While SLI is working I can't get them to overclock for crap even with my cpu at stock speed. The drivers just quit responding with anything more than a mild overclock on the GPU.

That sounds like a paradigm shift if ever I've heard one... Sorry about your drivers slay, I'm pretty confident that SLI performance will improve once the GTX590 releases....
