Oh yeah the benchmark difference was about 1000 points in 3Dmark11, but i also believe I had difference in FPS as well. Too bad i dont have that rig to test again.

i7 3770K shouldn't hold back 690 in gaming. Will be doing mild OC anyway but not until after I cover my card is working properly. Testing atm.

Turns out going through UEFI I had iGPU turned off and forced Gen3 on PCIe slot rather than 'auto'. Going to test out BF3 again same scenario Ultra on all the way.

Looking at doing nvidia surround for my gtx 690 and have got a a lot of good feed back from you guys on options and was looking at a 24in led 120hz but I got a email from new egg and they have a great deal for today on 27in led 60hz for only $279 with promo code. is this one worth getting because I could get 3 for the price of 2 120hz 24in ones. Also it says it a TFT LCD panel is that good all I have been reading about is TN and IPS. Also I was kinda leaning towards IPS because I do graphic design on the side but it hard because I want a good gaming monitor. I play a lot of FPS games but as of lately play LOL and liking it it.

It's a TN panel, still a pretty good deal, though for only a few more dollars you could order some 1440p ips monitors off ebay:p

Got mine all overclocked and ready to go.
Honestly I dont even need to overclock the card, because Performance is through the roof.
2560X1600 Battlefield 3, Ultra Settings + 4x SSAA never goes below 70 FPS!! Usually around 80-95 fps.

Anyways my modest 24/7 OC is +100 Core, +200 Memory, +135 Power Target

Gets me 1145-1167 on both cores.

I've retested my card after some tweaking for optimal performance. Forced PCIe x16 Gen3. Over clocked CPU i7 3770 to 4.0 GHz. Went to NVP - Manage 3D Settings for BF3 program and set 'Texture Filtering - Quality' and set it to High Performance.

BF3 Caspian Border / Default Ultra Settings / i7 3770K 4.0 / GTX 690 Base 1039 Memory 1531 Boost 1144 - after Dynamic OverClock GPU#1 1162 GPU #2 Core 1195 / 1920x1080p 120 Hz / 7:57 seconds.

338









Again, impressed by 'Frame Metering' happening in this card syncing the GPU's to reduce micro stutter.

Interesting what the right BIOS and settings will do for performance compared to my last run. +14% OC on CPU and GPU Core. Didn't go lower than 76 FPS and as high as 200 FPS depending on environment. thumb.gif

PS Edited to add: ASIC Score 81.5% - just in case someone likes to know this info. smile.gif
