For anyone who's curious, my card came today. I uninstalled drivers, ran driver cleaner in safe mode, resintalled latest drivers, and everything went smooth. No problems at all.

Only ran 3dmark05 so far: compared to my evga 7900GTX

eVGA 7900GTX: out of the box: 10407
eVGA 7900GTX: OC'd (can't remember to what: Cool bits Autodetect):11543

the new XFX 7950GX2 (XXX edition): as is, out of the box: 13558

nothing else has changed on my system except new drivers.

Nice results, seeing how we almost have an identical system I can expect good things. Any chance you could give 3d06 a run?

3dMark06: 8594
Not to shabby, with my cpu at 2.8 or higher I get around 10,000. The only thign that worries me about the 7950 is the Quad SLI 3D06 score was 9000ish, of course the drivers are still premature but still, I'll definately be taking a slight performance hit.

That's cool. Right now I running my FX60 at stock.

Does my score seem good or low? I don't know much about 3dmark06

Your score is 3,314 points higher than my rig. So...

At my fx60 at 2.8 (all i did was raise the multiplier to 14) I only get 8865.

I should expect it though. whenever I build a system it seems to score lower than everyone else's with the same specs!!

That score is kinda iffy, keep in mind I have two 7900 Superclocked in SLI, which at the moment still outperform a single dual gpu 7950 GX2, that's why my score is higher. Also, the 7950 has lower speeds then the 7900, but I agree that your score should be in the 9000's at least.

I don't really do anything with the nvidia control panel/drivers, should I?

No but some do by changing it to high performance instead of quality or high quality (shouldn't change it all that much though). When I overclock my cpu to 2.8 and my cards to 600/1800 I get around 9130 so your score doesn't seem too far off, if any.

Ahhh, I can't wait! Mine gets here tomorrow. :D


Nice score. I'm betting I could hit 14K w/ the cooling I have planned.

THat's awfully high, I've been browsing and most 7900 OC SLI rigs are hitting 10-11,000. 13000 would be nuts considering they're slower then 7900s.

Very odd. Why would my 3Dmark05 scores be higher than most would expect while my 3dmark06 be lower than you all expected?

I have never run it.

Try running Aquamark 3, it will give you an overall score as well as a gfx and cpu score, its only a short benchmark and then we can see the performance difference compared to 1 7900gtx/ 2x7900gtx's

I can try, but it won't be for another 7-8 hours, because I am not at home now.

My results seem on par with these:

3dMark05, not '06.

Yeah, I think you could hit 14,000 without a problem. I don't really know much about OC'ing. Just the basics. I built the system below. Everything running at stock speeds (aside from the factory OC on the 7950) I got 13500. YOu seem to know what you're talking about. You may be able to push it beyond that.

I think cooling may be an issue. I have an awesome case and good fans and it seems to keep things cool on air.

kwynjunk--Do you have the OC'd XFX? The one that's 570/1550?

I just benchmarked mine and got 13,100 on 3dMark05 and 7,980 on 3dMark06. Mine is at stock speeds 500/600.

Yeah. I have the OC'd 570/1550 one. I think they call it the XXX

with a slight overclock on the fx60 i got:

3dmark05: 14188
3dmark06: 8974 (just need 26 more points to get to your magic #)

(i think my previous score without the OC on the processor are in this thread higher up)

Those are good scores. You definitely have an advantage over me w/ the FX-60. I've hit a wall on mine at 2.65gHz. :(

The card's not running that hot, either. 53 at idle and 70 under load. Only about 9C higher than my GTX got to.

The card seems to be rock solid. No issues so far.
