Push that memory and your score will increase quite a bit

I'm working on that. 400 crashes during the 25th stage. Once at 350, it actually finished the test, but crashed when I was writing the numbers down. thinking.gif Any suggestions?

I hope you're not comparing with my score. My system is 2 x 660 ti cards in SLI. I know my screen shot does not say SLI but it is.
You're getting 40 with one card, I'm getting 73 with 2 cards. Sounds about right. Don't get frustrated. Also I think my CPU is a little bit faster. That might make a difference as well.
Ps: you could always throw in another 660 ti. They are only about 240$.
Happy time PC.

Hi,

I am curious if anyone has tested their Heaven results from old drivers to the latest ones.

Back when I first started OCing I was on 301.42 WHQL
I could do 96fps 2400 score at 1080p maxed out
this is at 1250MHz core/1866Mhz mem 120% Power draw 1.175V

then 310.61 beta
I could do 80fps 2050 score at 1080p maxed out
this is at 1250MHz core/1866Mhz mem 120% Power draw 1.175V

Now 310.70WHQL
I could do 83fps 2400 score at 1080p maxed out
this is at 1300MHz core/1866Mhz mem 145% Power draw 1.215V

Have people been noticing their Heaven score/performance dropping significantly after new drivers?? There's been absolutely no hardware changes in my setup. All temps were comparable to each other so there's no thermal throttle...

Mine dropped a little -- but at this point I'm not sure that it isn't just random throttling issues. I am struggling a little to keep one of my two cards below 70C. It almost seems as though 310.70 WHQL made it a little worse. Going to work on it some more today.

Benchmarking is pretty much the only place I see it, though; all games have been running fine.

Edit: the operation was a success -- swapped the coolers between the two cards, and with a fresh application of AS5, both cards are now staying below 70C (bouncing between 67C and 69C), and much less throttling, just down from 1254 to 1241 in a couple of spots during the Heaven run.

Funny thing, though, is that I upped my CPU clock a couple of days ago from 4.7 to 4.8, and it does not appear to have had any influence on the Heaven scores -- I still seem to be topping out at about 2340-2345. Guess I'm GPU limited here with the maximum settings at 1200p?

Yes, that is definitely what that observation implies, since that is the exact method by which one would properly test for CPU limitation. If you OC your CPU further and your FPS/score doesn't go up at all, then you can be sure you are not being CPU-limited at all.

However it's important to remember that any such observation applies ONLY to that one particular test/game/bench, at those exact settings. One cannot extrapolate from such results and conclude anything 'universally' ... no matter what test you use, your rig's degree of gpu/cpu limitation can never be derived 'globally', it's always just applicable to the exact test you're running at the time thumb.gif

I've not tested Heaven on the 310.70 drivers, but I'll try to have a go at it today and see if I'm losing any points vs. my scores w/older drivers, using the same clocks.

My score is comparable to the old drivers...I realized my SLI were not being tapped/on full load...once I alt-tab it it goes back to 95-99%

Quick question hoping for confirmation either way.

AB and Precision both show that the cards run at their individual core clocks, right. But when I run Heaven and OC only the card that boosts higher by default (keppler boost), I see no improvement in score. When I OC the card that has lower boost by default, the score increases. I'm still not 100% sure even after what I saw, so hoping someone can confirm that in SLI the cards will (regardless what AB or Precision shows) run at the lower clocked cards speeds?

Its been reported by many people that their Kepler cards when it comes to Benchmark applications that they actually drop in performance. In games however they're doing the same.

But yes I've found my best driver to be 306.97 with my old 690. 310.70 broke the card.
