They are working on a new game Planetary Annihilation now under their own company. With out publishers money and put it on kickstarter a few months back. They are making this game to get back to TA roots and make another true large scale RTS.

Watch the video. :-)

it looks like they are going to go big or go home oh yeah thumb.gif

Single 925MHz
Crossfire 925MHz

I missed seeing thus before...

First guess your PC will win this race... Hopefully it will at least be good and close! Also are you running the full/paid version of 3dm11?

Will play later tonight and post using the free one.

My CPU is getting less scores than other of the same model...
I believe this has something to do with my RAM as I am not able to run the RAM at full speed when using all four slots.
And your RAM is running at much faster speed than my RAM is in the current config.

You will find theese results really funny then this is my Bench same test

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6030343

I looked at them both and you should beat my score by more then 94 points your Cpu is native at that speed should be faster but my ram is 16 gb
it is saying 800mhz but i am running it higher and it is not seeing it im running at 1060mhz and you have the 8350 i have the 8120 over clocked to the max as i can go as heat is an issue when i start raiseing the voltage have had it at 4.4ghz try taking out 2 sticks of ram and see if you get a performance boost by using higher ram speeds

With only two sticks in....

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6030526

Better but still not what I expected... as I would have expected your PC to score better than mine as its overclocked (to a faster speed) and mine is all stock.
I guess we should all ways take these synthetic scores with a grain of salt as we are getting the expected performance relative to each other's PCs specs when actually playing games like Crysis 3 and SP FA as we talked about in the previous posts.

EDIT:
BTW, my RAM is running at 933 now (1866) at stock speed... that I can't get when I have all four stick in....

Yeah, try adding more IMC voltage to get your RAM running at a better speed! That helped me getting all four of mine stable at 1866, it didn't like it at stock even after filling the RAM for a while. I've got mine set at 0.975v from 0.925v thumb.gif

Core Clock 300MHz? LOL Nice cards! tongue.gif
And yeah free version.. Who actually buys 3DMark? tongue.gif

I do have a slightly better CPU for single threaded performance but for multi threaded you win hands down, hence why we have quite similar scores. Your 7870's are also clocked at 1100MHz compared to my 7950's at 925 which is why my score is only marginally higher. I need to re-overclock my system as I've moved recently and get different ambient temps.

That is a better score my ram is runnign at native 2133 and the Gpu is running stock here is a bench running Overclocked gpus

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6033735

Im not that far off from you we have very similar systems so you should get a better score with that Cpu Overclocked to say 4.8 it shoud do that with out breakin a sweat lol

Yeah, my CPU is at 4.4GHz now and the graphics cards are at 950MHz instead of 925MHz tongue.gif I can't run right now as I have a lecture in 30 minutes! :O
