Hey guys, just a quick question. I have run a few benches on various games/programs, and although 3DMark11 gives me a great P score of 9750, and Graphics score of 10,450, just about all other benches fall below the frames/score I was getting with my Sapphire 7950 OC. This is including the fact that not only is the GTX 670 a superior card, but also that my new 670 is actually clocked higher than my old 7950 when running the same benches. Max stable OC on the 7950 was 1200 core and 1700 memory, while on my 670 it manages 1235 and 1750 easily while barely hitting 50C. Something doesn't seem to add up. I also reset all the settings in the Nvidia control panel to default and ran the benches. The scores are similar, but I figured that with a higher clock, I would easily break the old scores that I had set with the AMD card. I am running the latest Nvidia beta drivers, I'm wondering if returning to the WHQL release might change something.
I am new to Nvidia cards, and would love anyone's input on what settings I should be using when running any benchmarks. Something like PhysX I am sure would interfere with scores if not properly set before you start benching. Upgrading to a 670 from a 7950 (wanted to change teams) does not feel like much of an upgrade when the only bench that performs better than my old card is 3DMark11.
Thanks for any info anyone is able to provide. For reference, I am running the Gigabyte OC 670
