Precision and GPUz are each showing a different GPU. I went down to the 314.22 because the ones that came with the cd, and the ones after that I kept getting black screened. Is it because my CPU has a low OC?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
One way to find out would be to try a 4.5Ghz OC for just a few minutes (time it takes to run the benchmark once or twice) & see if you have a decent difference. It helped a previous user with a similar issue in valley.
1) 314.22 are slower than the newer 320.49 or 326.01 for many user (noticeably)
2) Make sure you tweak the NVCP program settings for Valley 1.0 benchmark to
texture filtering to->high performance
power management mode->prefer maximum performance
... not just the Single display performance mode.
3) There another tweak in NVCP. Go to 'Adjust image settings with Preview->Use my preference emphasizing->performance->apply. (I think you're already using that one -- but just in case
(don't forget to reset after the benchmarks back to game mode by clicking on 'use the advanced 3d image settings' & then 'take me there' & hit restore to make sure it reverts to the defaults. )
4) there are other tweaks like have Valley run in real time -- never used those though, so I'm not sure how much more performance you'll get. More info on the Valley benchmark thread on this site here
Can you check what FPS you're getting in scenes 10-15 too? (are you maxed out at same FPS for the 6 scenes?)
Oh, some users have reported that switching the card position on the MB helped. (while others reported the opposite. I guess it's different for each users -- worth a try though).
P.S. what do you mean by getting black screens with the other drivers? at Windows desktop? in all 3d applications?Edited by Melk - 7/2/13 at 6:00pm
