I don't believe it acts independently of the "Advanced 3d image settings" but as a master control. I think you should take that part out as I believe it's redundant, but I could be wrong. I also believe you should add the "change the process priority to high" tweak in there as well as it may help some users with bogged down systems or older hardware. I'm hypothesizing that the people you asked about it all have sufficient systems/OS installs that the Valley process is not starved for CPU cycles, and thus would not benefit from setting the process' priority higher. Other than that it looks great! thumb.gif +rep
Thanks.
Every setup is different, but on my 690 I absolutely have to enter the “Manage 3D settings” page to change Texture filtering, and then move the slider to performance. If I don’t do both my score suffers. So I know I need to do it, but you are right it might not a difference to some. I figured putting it the way I did would cover everyone.

Maybe I am doing something wrong, but the mere act of hitting alt-tab to go to the desktop (which you have to do to raise the priority of valley) then alt-tab back causes my score to drop a bit. I think what we should do is add the priority changing part to the op if one person here can confirm it helps their score, and exactly what process they use to do it. I didn’t want to add it to the guide without a specific method to do it that helps or at least doesn’t your score. +rep for the help

Change the individual ones, then move the slider. Every time I have tried, as long as both the individual ones are changed and the slider is on performance I get the high score. But I can’t just do one or the other.

But I think the value of this thread are the charts and the main presentation.

It's written everywhere to read the rules and fill the form. There are 2 Links in the top of the page for the form.

At one point, I can't OC people's cards and run Valley for them then fill the Form for them.

This is tweaked. I can't speak for anyone else but I didn't build this rig to bench on reduced settings, especially since the point of the quads is to max everything in games. The new Grid 2 is insane btw. At Ultra plus some, I'm getting full usage, stutter free gaming with 140fps minimums. Gonna have to consider 120hz panels for the future. Anyways, I'm off back to my cave.

I guess I will have to open a poll for this. If majority of people like it that way, I won't modify it.

Benchmarks show the 670 ahead of the 7950 by over 25% in several games-http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/550?vs=598. I think I'll stick with Anandtech graphs since their a very reputable site.







As you can see the 7970 is losing to the 670 now in alot of games, so the 7950 is nowhere near the 670 in performance.

No point. You should read the whole OP. If you dont wanna check the graph just scroll down

Are you hitting alt+tab to change the affinity while the bench is running? Or are you saying that alt+tab at any point while the program is running reduces your scores? I can't see how or why it would but then again I'm not ruling it out. I've never noticed this before as usually I start the program in window mode at a small resolution to check my boost clocks before I start the bench run, then I'll change the resolution in Valley to 1080 fullscreen and begin my run. I didn't know about the hitting enter trick to cycle through the scenes but I did notice a little trick I'll share which may already be known. When I start the bench I'll hit Esc right away to cancel the bench and then hit the bench button again, some times I repeat this process a few times until I get a "good" start as in not too low a min right off the bat.

So if it's found that indeed alt+tab effects scores, the user could be advised to start in window mode, change the process' priority and then switch to fullscreen. I haven't noticed any poor scores with this process, but then again I haven't done a lot of testing either tongue.gif
