Default 6800 performance

Thought I'd check how the performance of my new 6800 compared to other's results.

Did a quick google search and found this:
http://www.computerbase.de/news/hard...c_viewperf_801

Ran the 3dsmax test, ran it again without a WM, ran it with nvagp instead of agpgart results varied 0.1 points.

Best results I got was:
3dsmax-03 Weighted Geometric Mean = 12.72
why is it that low?!? This is on ubuntu (XFree 6.7, patched a LOT) on a custom kernel without a WM running.

Could someone else install and test this? (simple matter of downloading it from spec.org's homepage http://www.spec.org/gpc/downloadindex.html SPECviewperf 8.0.1, note, huge download, not for 56k'ers ), unpack, cd src && ./CONFIGURE && make && cp viewperf ../viewperf and it should work.

To run one test instead of all of em run:
#./Run_Viewset.csh 3dsmax-03 3dsmax results
#grep "Mean" sum_results/3dsmax/summary.txt

A benchmark is never reliable when you run it only once. A more reliable way is to run the benchmark lets say 3 times and take the average or even better is to run it 5 times and then to remove the fastest and slowest result and then also take the average. Further don't vary two things at the same time if you want to know the influence of the agp drivers and the WM.

... booting into no WM and running it should make the performance basically identical every time.

either way, I ran it 3 times and saw a 0.1 point difference.

I'm not interested in the difference between agpgart/nvagp, I'm interested how he got 5 points more than me on the same hardware (a massive increase in this benchmark).


also if anyone has any suggestions on alternate stuff to benchmark, that'd be great.

As you look well those tests are done on Windows and also with different driver versions. Because of this it is comparing apples with oranges as in the OS lots of things work differently further note it is not 5 points but 5000 points as they use "," instead of ".". Further is your cpu and so the same too?

ahh, it showed up in a google search including linux, and it was in german, so I didn't think about checking the OS.

I'd still like to know what results other people are getting though
