6950 OC help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got my Asus 6950 unlocked to a 6970 the other day after selling my 5870's. I'm in need of some help. I need to figure out why my friend is beating me or keeping up to me in 3D Mark '06 Benchmark. I have my CPU at 4.1MHZ and my card at 900 and were both running the same things. His first test results for the singly GPU test are beating mine by 200-300 more scores. (EX His 12300, Mine 12100 SMS.) I need to figure out how to actually beat him because its bothering me to why a 5870 is beating me in some scores and its a older model card, It just doesn't make sense to me. Now his card is Watercooled does this have anything to do with it. I have 2GB of mem he has 1GB. I'm just confused to why I cant beat him in scores is there something i'm doing wrong or someone can help me. I want to get WB for my card but I cant find them anywhere. Any suggestions and help? Thanks in advanced.

It really depends on what core speed his 5870 is running.

I found that my 6950 was about on par with a 5870 in benchmarks etc anyway. (stock v stock)

I was beating it at 900 core speed though with my 1055@3.8 v mates 1055@4.0 with 5870 stock

So find out what speed he has running probably 1000 on water who knows!

I predict a 5870@1000 is gonna beat a 6950 @900.

3DMark06 is hardly relevant nowadays; I suggest you try Vantage or 3DMark11.
