GTX 680 SLI Benchmark - is my score unusually low?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently added a second 680 to my setup and have been trying to do a bit of benchmarking to judge the improved performance. However, from what I've read on these forums over the last couple of days I think my scores are pretty low in comparison.

I'm using Uningine's Heaven with maxed settings (1920 x 1080, tessellation = Extreme, AA = 8x, quality = high, 16x ). Sorry no screenshot right now as I'm at work but I put them as I high as I could on my setup.

With 1 x 680 overclocked to around 1260 Mhz I was getting around 1400 score with the same settings in Heaven. But with two I am getting around 2000. I don't expect complete 100% scaling but I imagine that it should be around 2500 with these settings.

I have scoured these forums for people with similar issues but didn't find much that helped. As I am no expert I would really appreciate any advice you guys could give me on, firstly, is this score acceptable and am I expecting too much and secondly, if it is low any ideas what I could do to try to find the issue. Thanks so much for any help as this is really bugging me.

Rig:
i7 2600k @ 4.5Ghz
Corsair 850W
ASUS GTX 680 @ 1200 Mhz (PCI slot 1)
EVGA CS 680 @ 1175 (stock boosting) / (PCI slot 2)
Nvidia Driver 326.41

I also found that I had 4 CPU cores parked yesterday and I unparked them and it made a sight difference but nothing significant.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

What if you try to OC your CPU some more? Should aim for 4.8g - 5.0g

My 2500k at 5.0GHZ has its moment it cant even push a hd7970 to 100% and see dips to 95% etc,

I can imagine 2x GTX 680 needs an incredible ammount of CPU power to be fully utilized to 100% on both cards

I thought 4.5Ghz would be plenty. I can try squeezing it a little more though. Is the score I got low in the first place or am I expecting too much?

I am also wondering if my Nvidia control panel settings could be having a large effect. I don't have the on hand at the moment.but does anyone have any recommendations for these settings for achieving higher benching scores?
