Low Valley benchmark score? (290)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, so after running the benchmark the first couple times I wasn't too impressed with the score. I don't have the pictures for the exact numbers (posting from phone) but they went something like this:

The score was 1878 if I'm remembering correctly with 44fps average 80 max and 24ish min. And this was with the GPU overclocked a good bit. My CPU is an i5 2500k at stock speeds.

Looking at other people's scores they either seem to match or beat my score with weaker GPUs...

I then flashed the bios which led to a huge improvement but that improvement was what I was kind of expecting from the stock bios.

After the flash score went up to 2444 average fps went to 58 max at 108 and min at 27.

Are these normal scores?

i think the Valley bench loves fast memory, which Hawaii is not really known for except a few . . .

but amazingly, it excels in multi-gpu setup in the same bench (no.2 spot) . . .

Well..I have a topic about this on another forum and they're saying they get better scores with 7950s..

This sucks. I don't think my 290 is performing like it should

i hope you can oc your cpu. btw, my 7950/7970 crossfire scored a 72 at stock in valley. my 290 can surpass that easy but, i must say, that 7900 series crossfired are faster by a bunch once oc'ed.

I'm not crossfired though so I'm not expecting to beat any crossfire scores. I'm being told 680s oced can beat my first score though.

What does your 290 do?

BTW the 290 in the first benchmark was OCd to 1003/1300 if I remember right. I know the core clock was 1003 though for sure.

compare the graphics scores.

i don't have valley installed, i must have ran that like 20 times benching my 7950 in the past and got a final score of 51.2.
