I take it, you have high expectations for AMD bulldozer?
Yes.

I won't plug up your Thread but, briefly:

Here is a new Board from Tyan that takes two G34 Socket Bulldozers. There are Boards that take 4 Chips but they are too powerful for anything but Folding or Serving > 500 People. Over 50% faster on existing Code and 2-4x faster on re-compiled Code. I won't go on about it, just read the drooledge.


TYAN S8232 (S8232WGM4NR) (Size 16" x 13") (HUGE)

Did you manage to get a better overclock out of that Card now you've had some time to play with it ?

I had left overclocking alone for a bit, but recently returned to tinkering with my overclock.
My current stable OC is 980/1100
Core Voltage mV: 1215
Core Clock:980
Memory Clock:1100
Final temperature:69C MSI Kombustor, 30 minutes / 72C after Furmark Burn-in for 10 minutes

I left off at 950 last time because I ran out of time for proper OCing, as it turns out, 960+ requires a bump in voltage. I haven't done a benchmark yet, but I will in the next few days. I still need to play with the memory clock, but I don't expect to get much more than 1150.

Edit:
Here is a Furmark 1.9.0 720p benchmark

I ran 3dMark06 with the same settings you posted, but only got 15099 3DMarks.
My CPU is running at stock speeds, perhaps it's bottlenecking the card.

Core:980
