3DMark 2013

Recommended Posts

Yup, not working with my GTX 680's in SLI. Haven't tried my HD 7970's in Xfire, yet. The last benchmark with two GTX 690's in SLI... less than 1FPS, lol.

Got really good score with disabling sli with the 590s but crap with SLI enabled  :(

Just did some testing, this new 3DMark makes full use of cores and hyper threading it seems. Tested an i5 3550 and a GTX 660 Ti on Cloudgate (smaller monitor) and got a score of 16720, seems solid, went and ran this same test on an i7 3820 at the same clock speed with a HD 7905 and got a score of 21613. That difference seemed much bigger than it should so I dove into the sub scores. The 660 was scoring 43088 and the 7950 was at 48862 for graphics, a 13% difference. Okay that seemed about right or at least closer to right. The CPU scores however were the i5 at 5322 and the i7 at 7322, that explains the big difference. So for grins I turned off hyper threading and fired it up again.

 

With the hyper threading off we see the CPU score dip hard and so does the overall score. The i7 3820 with no hyper threading drops to 16319 overall, with a 48588 GPU score and a 4909 CPU score. That is dropping from roughly a 30% advantage to being about 3% behind.

 

Evidently the amount of RAM makes littler difference because the i5 had 8 gig and the i7 16 gig.

Hi Ed

I thought only frequency of ram and # of channels are the keys that make differences, did amount of ram also?

Get 1937 with sli enabled and 3666 with sli disabled on firestrike. Maybe I'll check back in a bit and see if any updates for it come out.

Anyone getting SLI to work? I'm seeing hall of fame results with sli setups and good scores but still can't get anything with SLI. Even with the new  314 drivers.
