post #2591 of 4099
Do any of y'all know about Steam games? I was going to let my boys play their shogun II and Dirt 3 on the new system before I tear it off the bench and get to building but it wouldn't run. On my prev. system (6850's and Phenom II 1100t, 990FX) it ran okay. Does this card or intel have any quirks or need anything different installed to run Steam stuff? I uninstalled Lucid,MVP and the onboard vga driver, lowered the shared to 32, and disabled the render stuff in BIOS. That way, it was only running on the gpu but still nope. On dirt, it will not start at all, and on Shogun II, it get's all the way to the loading screen before the dreaded "had a problem and needs to close" windows line of crap. It's not all-important, but would like it to run everything okay on 1 card before adding the 2nd when I do the build. Would also like to see how good the graphics are with 1 card b/c might give them one instead of upgrading their 6770 to a 7770. Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks.

Happy to report that I have successfully flash an ASUS OC'ed BIOS to my PowerColor 7850 2GB Reference card which bumped up my stock stetting from 860/1200 to stock 975/1250 which also allowed me to go from 1.25v VDDC to 1.3v VDDC which is a big bump because I only had 1150/1350 @ 1.25 VDDC with the stock BIOS and now I'm till finding a stable mem-clock with my GPU core OC. I couldn't achieve my clocks with AB so I had to use TriXX which helped my bump my VDDC to 1.3v. Temps are only at 38*C max thanks to the EK full cover block for the reference 7850. I tried pushing the clocks at around 1270 and it BSOD'ed when running Valley...so I had to dial it down to 1265...I know it can do more with more VDDC but I have no idea what other BIOS has the unlocked VDDC that can go more than 1.3v VDDC.

TLDR:
Stock BIOS:
Stock Clocks: 860 / 1200 @ 1.125v
OC Stable Core + Mem: 1150 / 1350 @ 1.25v

ASUS BIOS:
Stock Clocks: 975 / 1250 @ 1.150v
OC Stable Core: 1265 / 1250 @ 1.3v




Will report back with the final stable OC for both core and mem OC. Cheers!

what tools did you use to flash?

Bought a HD 7870 last night as an upgrade from my 2 year old HD 6790. I was blown away by the performance of the card! Thank you AMD! thumbsupsmiley.png

thumb.gif Excellent work on the oc. Just curious though, doesn't powercolor have the most powerful clocked 7850 like the pcs+ or sum'n? Was curious if there was a reason why it wasn't easier or available to ya rather than having to change brands...? Don't know enough about gpu flashing to know myself, have only done that type of thing once and it was flashing a dvd burner to a liteon...lol

My processor seems to bottleneck my 7870 XT so I doubt my score would help much

31.5fps 1317 score 7870 xt @ 1200/1500 i5 750 @ 4.0
post #2597 of 4099

I get the same exact score on stock. With my 7870 XT at 1150/1500, I got up to 33 FPS with 1340 as my score. I don't really think your CPU is bottlenecking.

I think it's both of our CPU's bottlenecking. It says you have an i3 correct? I'm pretty sure the 3570k / 3770k users with 7870's score higher than us.

Yea I have a i3 3220. Well results of 7870s with 3570K are all over the place. A 7850 with a 3570K just undercuts a 7950 with a 2600K based on these results.
