Was that with 1600mhz core clock ? Its bugging on the score page.
Thats my best result so far:

With my CPU clocked at 4.6ghz, I was able to hit 22600 graphics score quite a few times but with my cpu at 4.7ghz I simply cant hit 22600 anymore.
I didnt find anyone on the HOF for single 980Ti´s with a higher graphics score(except some LN2 and DICE dudes)than mine.Pretty good 980Ti I have here smile.gif

You beat my score! thumb.gif

lol
Well done

What BOOST were you running at?

Benchmarking is a science.. not a perfection. We do sometimes reach a point where backing off a bit can improve performance.

Unigine Superposition released!

Giddy-up!
https://unigine.com/en/products/benchmarks/superposition



Let's go for the ride together, first time...




and after... I have to say it's pretty cool... Just my initial impression. I don't know if it generates consistent scores, is CPU bound or how well it can work as a stress test. I've got a new toy to play with now biggrin.gif

EDIT: I ran the 4K test a 2nd time and the score was literally ONE POINT different! A good sign, hope it stays that consistent!

SLI is not working yet. I might just need a driver update, not sure.. these are single GPU scores even though it says x2






cigar.gif It still can't read the actual CPU speed correctly...(we tested and reported this already)



for the record, driver is currently 373.06 (it's old now).. but I got scared to update like everyone else when buggy drivers started to flow... Is it safe to jump back in again? LOL

here we go, 381.65
this driver seems to improve performance a little bit! Ran it 2x, 5 points apart. SLI still broken

I ran Fire Strike with 1600mHz core and 4001mhz memory clock.I also tried lowering GPU clocks but it didnt help.
Also I quickly downloaded new Unigene benchmark right after I saw your post.Although my memory clock is lower (2000mhz vs 2100mhz)than yours
I beat your score again.Is there a reason ?Theoretically you should beat my scores.
Also it seems like the new benchmark isnt CPU intensive.


Although my GPU is pretty beefy I might RMA it.Its producing a really weird,loud vibration sound in games above 60FPS and in some windows things.
I dont really want but I got a watercooling loop so I wouldnt hear my PC anymore.Now I hear this and its sooo annoying.
Also any psu I use is whining in combination with my mobo.I will get my mobo and psu replaced and probably my gpu would be too because that sound is far away from normal :/

You've got Skylake I've got an older Ivy-E, that's probably where you're getting the edge biggrin.gif

Not sure what PSU you have but if you're straining it, that could lead to whine. The PSU is probably the most important component in anyone's system.. It's hard to see that but without consistent, clean and reliable power all kinds of things can happen.

I would never RMA a 980Ti that could boost to 1600Mhz but that's just me tongue.gif Do you feel lucky? Well do ya? thumb.gif

Solution 1 - Orient your PC on the other side so that the case opening is away from you (if you keep your case open... I do... I assume most O/Cers do)
Solution 2 - Use headphones
Solution 3 - Turn your speakers up louder
Solution 4 - Return your GPU and get one that only overclocks to 1465Mhz doh.gif

There are 2 things that can cause that vibration sound. Fan resonance or Coil whine

If the issue is fan resonance, its easy to test, just idle and force the fan in to various % from 10% to 100% using MSI afterburner and see if you still get the vibration.

If its coil whine, the RMA will have the exact same issue, rest-assured the noise doesn't mean something is dying or anything. Its not even a reflection of the quality of the VRM (95% of inductors will whine).
If it bothers you that much, all you need to do is pad the chokes on the VRMs. Hot glue around each choke will work a charm.

First to you Laithan
I have a 730W PSU and it´s whining in idle with 0% load at all.I tested several PSU´s which had no whining in other systems but in my system every PSU made the same noise.
As I was looking for a solution, I found out that running my CPU at 800mhz completly rermoved the noise.So it´s something with my Mainboard I guess. I will get my mobo and PSU replaced (PSU just to be sure)

On to my 980Ti
1.My Case is closed -had 2°C difference with open case
2.I use headphones -the sound is really loud
3.Don´t use speakers for gaming -sound would still easily come through
4.Since the 980Ti Xtreme Gaming GPU´s are binned Im not that scared and these 980Ti´s boost to 1442mhz completely stock -a really **** card would oc to 1500 or a bit more I guess :/


On to Dasboogieman
Im on water so there are no fans :/
So it has to be coil whine.Its not the typical high pitched whine.Its a strong vibration sound without virbration.
My card hadn´t had it forever.It started 2-3weeks ago after my card crashed cuz I wanted more mhz.Normally a crash while oc´ing does nothing^^
Hardware modding would completely rip my warranty -I dont like that option at all :/

its an easy and reversible hardware mod. I used Seksui thermal tape and taped all the chokes together, this dampens the whine from the inductors. But seriously, the hot glue mod is the best and also very reversible, just peel it off before warranty lol.

So your coil whine isn't your GPU, no need to RMA right?
