my scores were taken after warm up (2-3 quick starts of bench that resulted in rising lower FPS numbers. first cold start always gives me 16-20 FPS and then in whole test FPS never reaches even 25-26, so i'm warming card before bench)
Thanks for the advice but warmup is part of my routine. I've done many, many, many 'tests' and they all point to the bios.
Here's a regular score for F4 bios and 285.27: P9770
Regular score for F5a bios and 285.27: P9975
So how consistent is my scoring? With the same setup I've never deviated more than 40 points in either direction. Usually any deviation is below 20 points.
Here's the same benchmark 10 minutes later: P9975
And here's a deviation of the same bench: P9958
Everything that I have tested and observed points to bios. Plus I deconstructed the different releases and found that F1 and F2 handle the GFX one way, F3 and F4 handle it a different way, and F5a is another way yet. But on F1 and F2 the graphics scores were appropriate for the hardware. Now? Less so.
Also my physics scores are quite low. 10.3K for 4.4GHz? I sure hope that's not normal.
