Default Re: The Tech Forums Official 3DMark06 Top List

Thanks again for whoever did this Official Top List thread, it really gives a good reference of what our machines are capable of. For example I'm at 13.5k right now, and Blitersety with the same hardware overclocked more is probably the max I can get at 14.5k ( althought he can't pass artifact tests or stress tests :P ). However the only score in there that throws everything off is Stes score. Although he's overclocked his q6600 to 3.9, his GTX is still stock so I think he would yield a slower score however he gets a higher on at like 14.9k but his resolution wasn't at the official resolution so he may get a artificial boost? Confusing...Stes score only serves to confuse people :P

BTW Anyone know where that graphic card ranking list thread is? Can't seem to find it...that should also be a sticky, very helpful

lol Gabb I can pass stress like orthos just fine. While it is true that I can't get through more than 10 seconds in ati tool without artifacts (lol), I don't notice any artifacting in games as long as vsync is enabled. However, if I have vsync disabled, then I get insane fps, I mean like 200+ in tech forums and HL2, so I will get some pretty major tearing there but that's only with vsync off; I always play with it turned on.

Give me a sec and I'll edit in a link to the graphics card rankings for you.

edit - nevermind it looks like b1 beat me to it.

By the way, how do you like your HZ's? What do you have your timings set at? I've been wondering if HZ's are better than my tracers.

Well with Vsync off there is always some tearing visible on the screen and thats not considered an artifact at all. Something weird about the Source engine is I found out you HAVE to play with vsync off since if you enable it, it dramatically alters your mouse movement in a very BAD way. Talk to any CS:S Pro about it for more information

Also my HZs are set to the standard timing on the box 4-4-4-12 at default 800 mhz, their fine so far and never gave me a problem ( although in my old P5N mobo they didn't work unless I put them side by side on vista ( got a lot of BSODs, don't know what that was about ). I don't really know much how they compare with other Ram although this december you could get 2 gigs of corsair XMS ddr2 800 Ram for like 32 dollars after MIR...thats just friggin CRAZY

Oh okay. I just remember that HZ's used to be recommended all the time around here and then all of a sudden everyone switched to recommending ballistix. idk y.

About the source engine v-sync issue. Does this only affect CS:S? I've never experienced any trouble with v-sinc on i tf2 or any of the hl:2 games. I don't know any cs:s pro's to ask about it though, where can I find more info on it? You've got me curious now lol.

The HZs were very cheap at the time they were recommended all the time. After the C2Ds arrived, they skyrocketed. And Ballistix went down by a lot. And for the price, they both are pretty much neck and neck, in terms of performance and overclocking.
