I'm thinking I could do better than this. I'm running it in Surround mode, but on a single monitor, so I have no idea what sort of driver shenanigans are going on and if that impacts performance. I'll try running it in single monitor SLI mode and see what that does.

I agree whole heartedly and thats exactly why I am disputing the results table. If the #1 score if false then the entire table should be taken with a grain of salt. To even entertain the idea of keeping the score will only encourage people to give false results in the future. Thus making it harder to get a good mix of true test runs to get a true comparison.

I understand its all in the name of fun, but when people purposely skew there test results for a little forum glory, its no longer fun.

Almost everyone who behchmarks uses small LOD adjustments as well as the "maximum performance" setting the control panel.

I was asked via PM to re run the benchmark, without any LOD or anything else. However not having GTX470's anymore makes that impossible. So instead here is my results with 3 GTX480's @ 925/1850/4400 and an i7 920 at 4.4Ghz.

BUMP!

Anyone?

1920x1080 still isnt that high. Get at least 1920x1200, 2560x1440, or 2560x1600.

I'm rocking 1920 x 1200 w/ a 5770 and I can play every game I own (including Crysis) with 100% maxed in-game settings... err actually I think in Metro I have to turn off that advanced DOF or whatever it is. That's the only exception. Most games I'm rocking a fair amount of AA as well.

So yeah, your 480 would likely do very well at any higher res.

Thanks for the replies guys. I was just wondering if my current res was keeping me a little cpu limited with this card.

I think I need a higher rez to play with, and try this bench again.

I made a mistake on the benchmark I only moved one of the sliders to 2.0. I took a 8 point hit from my first run. My bad I was not trying to cheat.

Grey, that res definitely limits a 480. 1920x1080 is a perfect match for assuring that every game can have every setting maxed plus 4x or 8x AA. 1920x1200, same, except likely just 4x... and 2560x1440, same except 2x to 4x.

I've really don't give a "crap" anymore, but I still think CraptacularOne's scores are a bit suspicious. If I did everything he did by overclocking my system to it's limits and setting everything in the control panel to performance, there would still be no way for me to get to 88.5 FPS. That windmill section he took a screenshot of is where the FPS are at their highest. It shows only 80.8 there. Perhaps it's a dip because the screenshot was taken at the time, but if not an average frame rate of 88.5 would mean that section would be into the 100s.
