Quad Core System Advice

Recommended Posts

Ah the glory of a credit card...

 

And check this monkey crap out: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=3288896

 

3.33GHz, I have no idea if it's too awefully stable, but it sure did run 3DMark05 like butter...

 

Air cooler handled it well too, didn't get above around 40C... course never using more than 50% of two of the four cores each, don't surprise me... I'll clock it back down and begin testing for real stability at stock in a bit... Orthos here I come.

 

Is there some special procedure for Orthos with Quad Cores?

3DMark Score

(3DMarks) 18024 (My score)

 

21039 (yours)

 

CPU Score

(CPUMarks) 12756 (My score)

 

Not enough CPU tests run ?

 

Why did you not run any CPU test? and maybe 3D/06 would be a more intresting benchie with the Q core?

When comparing graphics performance few people run the CPU tests as they are not needed nor have any impact on the score produced.

 

I agree. 3d06 is a much better indicator of performance for multiple processor CPUs.

I agree, but we all no what the 8800's can do, and like you say CPU test has little inpact on the score which makes me wonder why the 3D benchies in the first place, and kinda think that the main reseaon for the thread was about the Quad CPU and I was then intrested to see what inpact it had in 3D bench mark compared to dual core and single core's, I also get the impression that the reason for buying the QX6850 over the Q6600 was to be able to inprove game play in

"FEAR, Oblivion, Dark Messiah and other games" mind you not sure what benifit fear would have :rolleyes: so i found it odd that no CPU test was completed thats all, anyway.... :D

Because 3DMark05 doesn't show the difference between Quads and Duals, therefore it's CPU test is useless...

 

and my latest 3Dmark05 score (I think that's what you're refering to, no clue) is: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=3292376 ~~ 21966... and now I have to go redo my signature since someone got anal about it being a little over the 50k size limit ;) lol

Any of the 3dMarks are only good for comparing changes in a single system or comparing two identical systems. Otherwise conclusions based on scores are useless. We both know my dual core, single 8800GTX system doesn't have the processing power of your system but yet I score almost 3000 points more in 3d05.

Wasn't me. Guess I wasn't paying attention. :)

Tested with a single card (I'm back to single card til I prove this thing is actually stable (easier access to the CMOS clear jumper) and...

 

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=3294489 ~~~ Has complete results, from batch size to CPU score etc., beat my old 3GHz AMD record with SLI by a smidge. 17788 ain't bad considering I got plenty of unknown kinks to work out.

Open it in Photoshop and click on "save for web". You can cut practically anything to below 50 KiB.

So why are you posting 3D benchies then? this what i don't understand, thread you started is all about your quad CPU :confused:
