I even love my AMD set up, its rock solid stable at 4.0Ghz/2800CPU/NB freq but my i5 set up is much much stronger. Unless your running Xfire.Sli dont expect a massive improvement, but its still worth it.frown.gif

Yeah My 955 rig is running 3.9ghz at 27xx NB I love my rig but the CPU is showing it's age and i'm going to upgrade to a i5 with that z68 board. I run crossfire 6950's and the 955 is bottlenecking the cards and maxing itself out on games like BF3 so..........plus i run eyefinity so the gpu's are doing a lot of work but they are still being bottlenecked my the 955.....plus the i5 should help me future proof for a few more years. still getting an average of 70fps on BF3 on all ultra but get narly fps spikes down to 40fps on Caspian and other large 64player maps.

thats the problem i found with my 955. i didn't care about it capping my maximum framerate but when the cpu spiked at 100% the minimum framerates would become horrendous. its all about minimum framerates! well it is for me anyways rolleyes.gif to be fair though caspian is just one of those maps that does that, but since upgrading, my minimum framerate on that map is probably about 8fps higher no joke!

Though it can clock higher I have decided to run my Toxic on default voltage with 950/1375.
My 2500k still doesn't wanna go past 4.1Ghz so thats what it's clocked at! frown.gif
*Furmark 1.9.2 - 720 preset: SCORE:3829 points (63 FPS, 60000 ms)
*Furmark 1.9.2 - 1080 preset: SCORE:2268 points (37 FPS, 60000 ms)
*3DMark 11 (Basic) - Performance Preset - Benchmark Tests Only: P6141

Definitely got a problem there. I get much higher fps and a higher score on my lower clocked toxic with my stock 955. I think it's throttling.

what do you get roughly? same version of furmark (1.9.2) and 3dmark 11 (1.0.3.0)?

Edit: funny thing is it says my score is 534476 on the front page HAHAHA!!!

I'm gonna up the powertune to 50% and see if it makes any difference then. Will post back with results...

Look in OP for furmark score. It's 1.9.1, but it should be roughly the same. It's been a long time since I ran 3dmark 11 so I have no clue for it.

i just upped powertune and i did do ever so slightly better so i guess there was a touch of throttling going on. i just ran the 1080 preset and got: 2591 points (43 FPS, 60000 ms). that was with a few other programs and tasks running on my computer to so im sure i'd get a little more if i closed all that stuff. dont seem that bad really does it?

Hey guys ... I'll update the Benchmarks a little later ... and do a full Owners List Check and Recount of our Club Stats near the end of the month here ...

 

Just wanted to also let everyone know, I now am also running the Im fueled by SAPPHIRE thread, I took over for 4LC4PON3 ... so there will be some overlap of info and data.

If you haven't and you'd like to be a member there too, please stop by and check out what I've got going on on the Front Page over there ... I'll try to post ALL things SAPPhIRE and keep poeple up to date and informed on what Sapphire has in the Works with the new AMD Radeon HD-7xxx Series Graphics cards, including the rumored 7900 series TOXIC and ATOMIC cards  wheee.gif  but also their new line of AMD & INTEL Motherboards, and other accessories, so CHECK IT OUT from time to time. thumb.gif
