Understanding your 3DMark06?
 
So I havent oc'd in a while and thought i would oc the gpu a bit. So I ran 3DMark06 and got a decent score of 12,769. Then I realized that the best 3Dmark06 scores were over 30k!! So we have our resident overclocking pro jAkUp and with his -40c processor and with 3 ultra's he only pulls 21.5k explain please!

OC your proc. I think had jAkUp clocked his proc over 5.7ghz, and use XP to bench 3DMark 06 instead of Vista, he would have gotten close to 30K too.

I have a copy of xp 64 bit edition. Will my benchmark score be much better so the bios will recognize the 3gb of ram?

Also how much BIGGEr of a difference is it between DDR2 and DDR3 is the jump of price cost effective?

Are the guys that are hitting over 30K on LN2, cascades or DI ?

It's hard to say from just looking at a number. A lot of those guys have a great deal of knowledge about OCing and do many things to get high scores, like motherboard mods and tweaking the BIOS settings like memory timings and other things.

I am not sure but I have not seen how jAkUp achieved his score but go over to http://www.xtremesystems.org and take a look how some of those guys get the high scores. There is much more than changing the CPU multiplier and upping the FSB.

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=178637 .....performed by SF3D..... Today I got another 3870X2 and decided to do some quick pre results.

I had huge problems with BlackOPS beta bios and Crossfire. Max fsb was 405.
Cards run fine and overcloking was as easy as before.

These runs were done in hurry, cause I have only this night left to bench. I have another things to do in next few weeks.

No pictures of setup, cause my camera is still away.

Setup:

Foxconn BlackOPS (bios 7)
QX9650 @ 1.96V
G.Skill DDR3 (2.3V)
2x 3870 X2 (1. unmodded and 2. modded) (918MHz/1070MHz all tests)
Thermaltake TT 1200W
PCI-E @ 120MHz
Max fsb 405MHz.


Operating system: Win Vista 32-bit

Screenshots can speak for themselves

Yup Hardcore stuff :D

I so cannot wait. Will not be long :)

1.96Vcore? LOL 5.7Ghz, see I didn't lie. CPU clock affects the score a lot more than GPU clocks.

yes they do but K|ngp|n also pushes his ultras over a 1Ghz core speed, its a total package


IMHO these highest score are useless, I think that Futuremark needs to make a 24/48 hour stable section thus eliminating these LN2 systems. If you can't actually play on the system what is the point?

Probably 100+ because to get a 30K 3dmark06 score your running 1280 x 1024 no AA or AF.
