considering my max refresh == 75 @1600x1200 and 100+ @ 800x600... I am assuming I turned it off... I will check it again when I get back home though

Just quick a part of my last night findings for my setup...
  • 1600*1200 - 68.9-77.7-78.1-78.2-77.8
    1280*1024 - 73.8-86.0-87.5-87.5
    1024*768 - 77.1-92.6-95.6-96.1
    800*600 - 78.1-93.0-96.6-96.4
    640*480 -73.9-93.1-94.7
that was with no AA and with no AF and with high details

1280*1024 with low settings did pretty much as 800*600 with high + the first run was fast straight away even though I changes some settings, I guess that slow first run is somehow connected to change in resolution or color depth???

the last few runs one were 1280*1024with 4xAA & 8xAF

the first run was 47.9 FPS and the second was 51.7 FPS...

so you can judge.. it seems that the proc/system is the bottleneck @ 90+FPS
which is OK... however I am still curious about the first run and what was the command to show FPS...

showFPS 1 or something else? - I guess that I will need to look it up on the web... ah and when I OC the proc to 350 clock + 325 RAM... with 4xAA and 8xAF @1280*1024 I did 54.4 and 55.7 FPS... so around 10% increase... btw what is the stock for PRO... forgetfull me.. 340*325? as I think that this board of mine could run that easily... (samsung memory )

I spent whole of last night benching and recording various demos... there was only one that was a bit harder on he hardware out of 7 that I recorded... and the results are

in my case

1. the first run is slow
2. harder tha demo is the delta between the first run and the subsequent runs is larger


- in this more tasking demo 1600*1200 first run was 35.4 FPS and the second run was 51.5 FPS - while 51 FPS for a section with quite a lot of action/blasts is acceptable and the frame rate doesn't really dip below 30 FPS... 35 FPS - at one moment the counter was in single digits

3. the resolution doesn't really matter - 800*600 is ~5 FPS faster than 1600*1200 which should mean this is some kind of chipset problem + radeon as it was OK with GF4??? I don't know what's going on... apart arghhhhh...

maybe it's motherboard monitor... will have to uninstall it as this is one of the changes...

moving from cats 3.5 to cats 3.6 made no difference...

and the sky in Wolf ET is not clear either... as if I can see those mip-map levels in the sky that is sort of how it looks like... weird... ahhh will have to test some more... I did put a new installation of win 2000 on the same HDD without making a new partition, and no help... wolf ET even crashes after about 5 mins but I think this was MBM related, as it didn't crash before i installed it there as well... ah well doh... too much rubbish on that HDD, 5 GB free out of 80 ... but can't be bothered to record everything and clean it all up - yet....

maybe I will clean it out a little make a new partition and start from scratch... but somehow I fell like buying a 160 gb hdd

Default SCORE!

OK...

very simple indeed, and noone came here or at TR to forward me in that direction

but nothing else than radeon's problem with 32 bit color in OGL


Well yesterday first of all I installed latest via 4 in 1 than cats 3.7

than cleaned the registry ...

and run the demo and still the same problem

however reading the Cats 3.7 thread someone mentioned 32 bit color problem has not been sorted, and than I just put the color setting @ default (as I was maxing everything out before including this setting and put it @32 bit... )... and now the first run is just a little bit slower - meaning 49.5 FPS with the second run being still ~52 - 54 FPS but this is now negligible as in the demo the biggest dip I see is the counter in 30's on few ocassions and that's it... I guess it's how it should be... OK so this is one problem sorted

I just wish that I could figure out this overheating problem that I have as the chip looks to be rather good... OC' in for 150 mhz puts the temp up for 1-2 C only... however the overal temp being as high as it is there is no point in really running the system any faster ...

ah well.... at least it works...
