Valley scores on 7870 Tahiti low?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I have been trying out the Valley benchmark on the Extreme HD Preset and my score is 1095 without any overclock and around 1280 with a mild overclock (975 to 1100 core and 1500 to 1550 mem).

AMD FX-8320
8GB 1866 RAM
Powercolor 7870 Tahiti LE
550W gold PSU

What are the scores you are referring to? Links?

What brand is your PSU?

Have you tried different drivers?

A little bit more info would help us.
Small wonder.

Compared to the numbers in the Valley Benchmark thread you are about right for stock depending on drivers and such.

As KuuFA kind of eluded to though with a 550Watt PSU it is cutting it close to the power needed to cleanly power your setup. If it is a reliable brand I would not worry but if it isn't I would suggest looking for a better PSU thumb.gif

This is the PSU and I am referring to this competition that has been going on and was just comparing the 7950/7870/7870 XT scores.


What do you think?

I made sure the 550w is worthy of powering a good rig so I bought one of the better ones there are out there. I don't quite plan on crossfiring anyways wink.gif

Yea you should be fine then as for the score, what drivers are you running, when I run this on my 7870 I get pretty largely differing scores depending on the drivers I use, so far we have found in that thread that the 13.2 beta 6 drivers seem to give the best result (I have not tired since the 13.3 beta2 drivers came out)

Good luck man, I am currently sitting in third for single 7870's on that bench, with this being my last semester in college other things have been taking up my time tongue.gif
