Exclamation Tessellation Hero Challenge!! Bring it!!

Inspired by a thread over at Xtremesystems.org...

Heres what you do:

Set tessellation to extreme, AA/AF to 8x/16x, resolution to 1680*1050
Start heaven
Before running the benchmark click "tessellation" and set Scale, Factor, and Distance all to 2.0
Run the benchmark

He who comes through this challenge with a average FPS over 30 can consider themselves a hero. Screenshots of your heroism is of course a must.

I'll start off with my initial result... GTX 580 @ 800 core, 4200 memory, a mild OC... later in the thread I have some better results:



Let's see what you got!!


EDIT: I have ninja-edited this thread a little bit to get rid of any results not fitting the criteria, except for DarthBeavis' result as he can't seem to run this at the specified resolution. So if I deleted or edited your posts, it's only a bit of housekeeping.

Benchmark kept crashing, and I hung my system twice, had to back off my cpu and gpu overclock. I run my games fine everyday but that bench didn't like them. Its a really old windows 7 install.

Redid it since it bogged down at the start the last time and gave me 4 min fps for some reason.

Thanks Bro - I saw the drivers in your sig after I posted, but was too lazy to edit.

That must put it down to your C2Q vs my P2 proc then...I need to upgrade

I think I'll try it with MSE disabled though just to be sure.

Thanks LT.
