Looks like my 5850 would struggle if I tried this, but that was expected. Unfortunately my tiny monitor only goes to 1280x1024.

I have a revised chart that will be ready soon; it fixes a few mistakes and adds more granular detail.

Stock the 5970 and the GTX580 trade blows. I'm guessing it's the same rig, or similar rigs and those 5970's are overclocked bigtime. Stock clocks on those 5970's are 5850 speeds correct? I think almost all the 5970's will do the 5870's speeds so maybe that is where he's getting all that gpu power from. Also since there are 4 gpu there are 4 tessellation units which is probably helping frames more than overclocking 3 5870's to higher clocks.

I re-did the chart, it now has CPU and GPU info, check it out.

NOTE: First place holder CraptacularOne told me via PM that he used optimized low image quality LOD and had texture filtering quality set to the lowest setting. Though I can't say this is really "cheating", it is highly likely that almost everyone else used either the Quality or Highest Quality setting.

Good job rage - just a suggestion though (as if you aren't doing enough already) show gpu speeds for all cards as a vanilla 480 will have a different "stock" speed than a 480 SC will.

Nice work, editor in grief

Thanks grey. I may do more of these "challenges", maybe these types of things (if further developed) could become an NV News hallmark, idk... ... a differentiator if you will...

Not everyone who posted results included a GPU-Z screenshot, nor did everyone specifically mention clock speeds. I did the best I could with the info I have.

Hello everyone. I registered here to post in this specific thread and dispute the # 1 score in the table. I am a long time member of several forums, and one of the top 10 posters at the Nvidia forums.

To quote ragejg :
I found this "test of manhood" to be quite interesting, and I thought what might make it even more fun would be to issue the challenge to some other hardware communities. So I called it the "Tessellation Hero Challenge" and asked folks at the NVIDIA forums, XtremeSystems.org, techpowerup!, rage3d, [H]ardforum, Guru3D, Elitebastards and Beyond3D to participate. As of 11/15/2010 here are the results. I apologize in advance for any typos, and also offer up that any of these results are up for debate or discussion.

I have the same setup as the #1 place holder and its impossible to obtain that score without intentionally manipulating the settings with the intent to decieve. At XS they eloquently called this tweaking, but members there also complained of this score as well as you probably wont see anymore posts in the nvidia forums thread until you respond to this issue.

Now let me clarify why I am disputing this. We as forum members of whatever forums are creating a huge data base of info people have access to. I for one dislike finding tons of misinformation and having to weed out the B.S.

This chart is posted on the FP and is one of the first things seen when coming there. Now my issue is to place your name or tag on the chart as the creator is your stamp of approval to those test scores at least being fairly accurate. So the biggest issue is that on every forum this is taking place i have seen people call B.S. on that score, yet it still stands.

Again my intentions are not to create stress nor strife, but to try and create data bases on the net that are reliable in nature.

Hey Grandpa, welcome to NV News.

I asked CraptacularOne to re-run with high-IQ settings with his new cards, GTX 480s.

He posted that info yesterday at XS forums thread.

My question is will the #1 slot continue to be occupied by the skewed test result? If so why? You can visit the Nvidia forums and read our thread, and see the only discussion about this challenge is the validity of that #1 score. Also having been and Editor at geeksmack.net and understanding how the trust of your readers is needed to survive in this game. I would think you would want that score removed as its fairly evident its false.

EG

Thanks for the warm welcome given the circumstances.
