Now I think the first run is completely stock, not sure if the 3.4ghz is at stock GPU clock but it should be the same as the first. But even comparing the top two you can clearly see a bottleneck at stock. The first two images I made a long time ago. can rerun if needed.
This test was just done now in windows 8 so it is slightly slower then what I used to get in windows 7, and can retest at whatever CPU clock if needed. Also has the GPU @ 850, what is a good chunk higher then the other two tests I believe as they may be stock gpu runs.
Make sure you notice the increase in graphic score just with a bump in CPU clock speed. The last test of course has the benefit of higher GPU clock speeds as well.
Trust me 3.5ghz is not enough, and while it may run two 670's at a decent level your not getting the true potential out of your cards. While it may not be the root of your problem, still doesnt mean your not bottlenecking, as you are
The fact that you ran two 480's in sli with your i7 at stock means you missed out on a good amount of extra performance. But thats not my problem.Edited by DzillaXx - 2/6/13 at 9:22am
