FX8120 and Crossfire HD7970 GHZ Edition

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

My first request for this is please respond if you have something valuable to add, please don't troll. redface.gif

Following some 3d marks scores I did and posted in a couple of threads, some guys asked me to post some game results on here with a single hd 7970 and crossfire 7970, they are GHZ editions at stock, I thought I'll start a new thread and then link people to it, sad thing is I don't know the real answer to the question "can a 8120 handle crossfire" because I have nothing to compare it to, all I can see is an improvement and personally that's good enough for me.

Validation for CPU and GPU below, Rig is in my signature. Tests were run in the same rig, just simply disabling crossfire for single GPU results.

Sleeping dogs

Single



Crossfire



Crossfire 1200 core mem 1600



Just Cause 2

Single



Crossfire



Crossfire 1200 core 1600 mem



Dirt Showdown

Single



Crossfire



1200 core 1600 mem



Battlefield 3 Graph FPS max and average, this is multiplayer rush 64vs 64 I wrote down the name of the map, I'll update when I get home tonight



Here is a print screen of usage during benchmark of Sleeping dogs, the green line obviously indicates the start of the bench.



Hope everyone finds this interesting and if you want any benchs please ask and I'll do my best to get them in.

It would be nice to see how much GPU usage there is while running these benchmarks so that we can see if the GPUs are being fully utilized or not. I would also be helpful to know how often the GPU usage drops below 99% and how much it does. Thanks for posting these, good to know that there is some good scaling in a few games.

I can run the crossfire again, what software would monitor and record that info?

What clock speeds are those cards running at? I can do some benches with a 2600k for comparison.

DiRT results are impressive. Just Cause 2, meh, doesn't even matter. Battlefield 3, not so much. Sleeping Dogs results are strange; perhaps run it maxxed out and see how that goes?

Thanks

I thought bf3 was impressive but then I forgot to share with everyone that this is playing rush on multiplayer 64 vs64 on ultra

To everyone else I'll re do the other games on full graphics and CPU / gpu usage, gonna have to do some research as I have no idea how to record that
