Random benches don't mean anything. Even with this pair, the 580s are running with physx on which kills the score.

Different settings are not comparable.

Run settings from here if you want to have comparable numbers. thumb.gif

I get better runs with 2 cards.

Don't forget Owikh84 is running at 2560 res though. That bench you linked is for 1680x1050.

All this talk of a P55 or X58 setup bottlenecking a pair of 7970's is being blown out of proportion. I am currently running crossfire 7970s ( 1200 core/1700 memory ) with a i5 750 at 4.2 ghz and am experiencing little to no problems with my CPU. With v-sync off it will hold 99% usage and then drop once and a while. But under task manager the CPU isn't loading at more then 90% on 1 core, the rest are in the 80% range. Once I go and play Metro 2033, Crysis, or even BF3 campaign I don't ever see it drop off 99% load on both GPU's. I think it is something with BF3 online rather then a CPU problem. Also I ran triple 1080P Eyefinity last weekend to test and see how the crossfire setup would handle BF3 on the absolute maximum settings. The level used was " Operation Swordbreaker ", With every graphical setting maxed, I was getting 50-60+ FPS average. Both cards where being loaded 99% the entire time while testing. Not once did I see it budge off of 99% usage. So in my opinion, a P55 setup or a X58 setup with a nice OC are more then capable of running these cards even on high OC's.

P.S. I know I am going to get the run around how a 2600K runs them at 99% load, and a 2500K with bounce off once and a while... As far as my opinion on that matter, I think BF3 online has many problems on its own to make it a unworthy testing suite for current CPU's with brand new GPU's that don't even have Official Crossfire Drivers smile.gif

Has it even been proven that a 2500k will bottleneck these cards? I played through all the B2K maps, with V-sync off my cards were doing 99-98% all the time, not dipping below 55 fps
post #3668 of 38701
This is my best with core and memory at defaults volts 1.175/1.6
Anyone can run with the same game settings to see how far can go ?
Thanks in advance.

I started this rant 'again' about cpu/gpu with the 7970 - as I saw a great second hand deal off ocn for a 3930k,RIVE,RAM ... while I see what slice259 is seeing in terms of % loads, my i920 has closer on 2 cores at max but bouncing ... I haven't tested on a MP 64 map...

...my future plan was to tri-fri w/a 7990 and my goal is to run my 120hz sig monitor w/Vsync ON ... playing a MP 64 map of BF3 and getting a smooth 120 fps... that being said and understanding we don't have a 7990 to really tell.. I would think the i920 may have issues with a 7990/7970?
