Default Re: 3DMark Vantage Benchmark Results Thread

Now a P30732 score seems impressive,but more than half the benchmark ran at the same FPS as when i was running it at the extreme settings,and it's the difference between 1280*1024 no AA with overall effects at medium,to 1920*1200 with 4X AA on top and post processing effects maxed out.

These cards are making fun of my CPU basically...
^^^^Still nice score, I wouldn't mind to have it.

I increased the clock speed on the HD 5970 to same you have in your signature 895/1295, I assume that is how you run the bench. Could not match your CPU 4.3GHz without going to 1.4875v, Decided it was way to high voltage so I increased the CPU to 4158 MHZ, for that I had to increase the CPU voltage to 1.425v.

The new score is P26625, which is 1428 points lower than your score with Cat 9.12 driver, but my score is slightly higher than yours run with the CAT 9.10 driver, not bad I'm happy, need better CPU. I can easy OC the i7 965 EE to 4GHz 1.35v, anything higher needs some crazy voltage.
