That's the result just re-run with the other posters suggested settings of 250 x19 with ram set at 1666. No gpu overclock. Not so sure 3dmark11 is fully compatible with win 8preview. Sometimes displays gpu/cpu clocks and sometimes doesn't. Doesn't seem to be consistent

The 3dmark 11 bullet physics engine is not optimized for windows 8 as a result you will see lower physics scores with windows 8. I have run 3dmark 11 dozens of times on both OS's and windows 8 physics score is always lower. Graphics scores are about the same on both OS's.

Physics comparison Win 8 vs Win 7 @ 4.875ghz

Win 8 - physics score 7853 - http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4602227?loginkey=CHOBKvi4800hGPFRPMfvlQ

Win 7 - physics score 8094 - http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4599098?loginkey=j90qg-kw4zkpvXkRw4mf9w

Ghost sorry to hear that you were not stable a 4.75ghx 250 x 19, every chip is different. I would stick with 4.7ghz and roll with the 7870's you should be good for sometime to come. The prices keep coming down on the 7870's I will take the plunge once I can pick up 2 for about $320 dollars.

Thanks again for the info REP +1.

Ya pretty much same. I paid 299$ for each of mine, on sale. Few months back, most of them were in the 340-350$ usd range. I was going to get a 7970, they were 500$ , decided for 100$ more I would be better off with 7870 crossfire instead. Might be selling them here soon though. The 8XXX series will be out in Jan. Sell while i can get something decent for them, and hold out with my old 6970. Then upgrade to either a 8970 or 8870 crossfire.

From what i hear the 8XXX series cards got a good boost in performance, for them being on the same process. They claim the 8870 will be as fast as a gtx680

From what i hear the 8XXX series cards got a good boost in performance, for them being on the same process. (25-30%)

I always try to stay a generation or 2 behind with a decent crossfire setup, the 8XXX series will drive down the price of the 7870's big time. I love it when new GPU's are released because I know that the prices on the previous generation will drop and I can pick up 2 beastly cards for cheap. I would hold on to those 7870's until the end of 2013 when the next gen console games hit the market. Until then your rig will continue to destroy all these console ports. If the 8XXX chips are as fast as the leaks suggest you may even be able to pick up two 7970's for less than 400 dollars because people will be selling them left and right to upgrade. And let me tell you my friend two 7970's will be overkill at 1080p for a long time to come. Heck I would take two 6970's right now.

Good Luck!

Well for one I play at 1080x3. Eye Infinity. About the Card pricing, Don't expect the old cards to drop in price much. Look at the 6870's for example, even though the 7XXX series came out they still are selling brand new for 150$-179$. Prolly because the 7770 is slower than a 6870, and the 7850 is 200$

In other words as long as the 7XXX series are competitive in the market you won't see huge drops in price. Only time that happen is if the New generation hardware is much faster than previous generation. Say the 8970 is twice as fast as the 7970. If the 8970 costs 500$ then the 7970's will be priced at around 250$ etcc

Ok.. So I seem to be amongst folks that know what they are talking about / looking at..

AsRock 990FX Extreme3, FX8120, GTX470 - 3DMark11 Tests..

1 - I reset the defaults in my OC tweaker in the bios. I ran 3DMark and got this.. 4492
Results show processor clock at 4228Mhz

2 - I then set my OC tweaker to 50% (4.6) and got this.. 4439
Results show processor clock at 3113Mhz

3 - I then set my OC tweaker to 45% (4.4) and I tweaked MSI afterburner up to Mem Clock 1801, and Core clock 702 - and got this 4919
Results show processor clock at 3113Mhz

What am I doing wrong? (Full system specs below)

Check cpu MHz/ load in core temp whilst under load. Asrock extreme 3 cannot handle a highly clocked fx8120 due to the vrm power phase. I suspect thermal throttle by the board vrms. See if your cpu is throttling under load. I had an asrock extreme 3 bought with my fx8120. Suffered thermal throttle above 3.9. Swapped it out immediately. The extreme 3 is good with my fx4170 but that takes less volts and creates less heat than an 8 series
