And by relevant settings I mean 1900x1200(or 1080) at high quality game settings and maybe even Eyefinity 3 monitor tests. In addition to the first battery of Game/Card tests, I would like to see Crossfire tests on the same games for 6770,6790, 6850, 6870, 6950 and 6970 to see what the Scorpius platform can really
do. I guess along those lines you could also throw in the same bracket of Nvidia/SLI tests as well, although to me personally I don't intend to mix oil and water, but many people do and will want to see that as well as the Scorpius platform offerings.
That list should keep you busy for a while.....
Oh, I almost forgot.
Something else that I personally would love to see is the same tests listed above on the 4100, as this is what I am thinking will be my upgrade choice in a couple of months.
P.S. Thank you for offering to provide these benches, I hope at least some of what is on my FX bench wishlist fits in with what you were planning.

Well, you asked which benches we would like to see, so I made my list
Seriously, what I am looking for is some actual game performance benchmarks that have relevance to Gamers. Nearly all of the benchmarks I have seen thus far are all about synthetic benchmarks, and even those that include a game bench or two mess up the test by using ultra low settings to isolate the CPU. I don't care how the FX performs
, I am interested in how the FX performs in an actual system doing an actual task , in my case Gaming. I realize that my list was extraordinarily long and inclusive , if you could run some real gameplay tests using hardware and settings (for both for the hardware AND
the game) that an average Gamer might have in his rig that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again for providing us with these benches.
Edit to add: You could be the first FX listed in the AMD Maxxmem club
, you could run that- and you will be probably be #1 on the list for a while at least.Edited by Jagged_Steel - 10/14/11 at 9:56am
