12.11 vs 310.33

post #1 of 107
Thread Starter 
**Just updated with the latest 310.54 driver.

I got an pm from Junkboy asking to compare my two rigs since I run both 7970s and a 680.


Both cards clocked to 1300 core and 1750 memory (7000 effective). The 680 is actually running slightly higher clocks, 1305/1752 -ish. Systems are very close, almost identical in the most respects, SSD RAID 0, 16GB Samsung wonder ram @ 2133 (same timings), watercooled cpu/gpu/vrm, etc...


The 7970 setup. You can also look at the rigs in my sig rig.

3930k is limited to 4 cores. I ran cinebench to confirm performance is the same. They should be since it's the same IPC. After running cinebench, I have to barf a little when I think about how much two cores costs in relation to the 3820 lol.

3820@4.8ghz (37x 130) - 9.32pts


3930K@4.8ghz (48x100) - 9.35pts




Benches, 680 list first/top:

3dmark 11

310.33 - P11496

310.54 - P11342

12.11B4 - P12283
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4811918


**The physics scores match up pretty darn good all things considered.

Heaven 3.0

310.33 - 61.5 FPS


310.54 - 61.5 FPS


12.11B4 - 64.9 FPS


Metro 2033

310.33 - 85.37 FPS


310.54 - 84.65 FPS


12.11B4 - 106.47 FPS


Sleeping Dogs

310.33 - 54.6 FPS


310.54 - 54.0 FPS


12.11B4 - 69.1 FPS


**I had to run the 7970 at 1295/1750 on 12.11 whilst using Afterburner. AB cannot feed as much voltage at that clock to the 7970 and 12.11 betas are finicky as all get out. Nv drivers really are a set it and forget type of experience. It's such a contrast.

Batman AC

310.33 - 104 FPS


310.54 - 104 FPS


12.11B4 - 120 FPS



Batman settings:



I have to run out right now but when I get back later, I will add screens of in game settings.

Ok, got Batman settings posted. Added 3dmark links.

Wow the 680 actually got pwned. I didn't know the gap is that large between the two eek.gif .
Awesome overclock on the 7970 too.
Thanks for the benchs dude. +rep smile.gif .


PS : I am sure raghu will be happy now.

Wow... That is not to bad. Better than I thought. Those new drivers are great for AMD cards

What brand 680 are you running? I also noticed the 3dmark 11 score you have for the 7970 references an Nvidia gpu.

EVGA Superclocked 2GB on water. I added links to the 3dmark results.

I knew the 7970 would win 3dmark, and the 7970 has always taken Heaven, though the Heaven gap is a lot smaller with a nice overclock. But Batman and Sleeping Dogs surprised me. I'm not an Nv expert since I spend all my time on my quadfire. All I did on the Nv rig was install the new driver reboot, double check with AB and set the clocks for the test. If there's something else I should do, let me know. The system is very stable and mature I have to say. The 1300/7000 overclock is 24/7 stable btw.

Nope your fine, you did everything correct, the 680 simply lost.
