[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 4158

post #41571 of 43862
From what I undestand, my 290x (8GB) + Z97 setup will survive the whole 2016. It is the first time in 4 years that I don't have any upgrade itch. I will be waiting for Zen to come out, see what it has to offer and keep my 290X till I see the available polaris prices and models. After all when this time arrives DX12 will breathe new life to the MVGPU (aka most valuable GPU) of the last 2.5 years.

Hi guys, I just wanted to share some interesting stuff.
When u change settings in drivers, it cant rly be seen by 3d mark and it says "Valid Result" thus making the benchmarking @scores a bit questionable redface.gif
Settings that can be adjusted: Tessellation OFF, Texture filtering quality-Performance, Frame pacing-OFF.

Look here:
Normal default driver settings, 1030/1250MHz all stock vs Changed drivers settings, 1030/1250MHz all stock
Newest drivers 16.1.1

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7418510




All it says is, "graphics driver not approved" as this is beta driver from today. It says it for both results hoever one of them has custom driver settings.
This gives me 12% Crossfire boost in graphics score on stock(just for curiosity)... smile.gif


With that said, here is my 290X single, 1250/1750MHz with 1500 timings and with "non-beta" driver.
16.6k graphics score... bike.gif
U can see all three scores....and all three "valid result"! thumb.gif




Also, Crimson 16.1.1 vs 16.1. No boost in 3d mark thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Which settings, though? Tessellation turned down, or off?

ah my bad. I will add it.
Yes, Tessellation OFF, Texture filtering quality-Performance, Frame pacing-OFF.

3dmark noticed that i turned off tessellation before when i tried it, weird that some people get a valid score, even though they turned it off. I tried it on crimson 15.12 and turned off tessellation only.

hmmm.

So Crimson does that?

I'm still using pre-Crimson.

Last month's runs.

you have pre-crimson and you say the same thing.

So it prolly depends on system or idk biggrin.gif

Weird.

I don't do tess off when trying to shoot some scores here. But I do on the bot. And most of the times, it gets detected.
