[Official] NVIDIA GTX 1070 Owner's Club - Page 41

post #401 of 9393
Alright, just installed my GTX 1070 SC.

Firestrike Graphics score of 13985 at stock settings: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9137780

Firestrike Graphics score of 14322 after my 1st round of overclocking: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9138795

Settings below:


GPU Z:


2050MHz when boosting during Firestrike:


Now I feel like it's overclocking pretty well without much tinkering. I set the fan curve for aggressive which helped and it's still quiet compared to my Hyper 212+ CPU cooler.

Now for the questions.
My overall firestrike score is pretty dismal compared to everyone else's.
Partly because of my old i7 920 CPU OC'ed to 3.8GHz. That's dropping my physics and combined categories pretty bad.

But also my FPS drops pretty low in the 1st graphics test for some reason, which is impacting that score a lot.

I did not do a clean driver install, not sure if that will help.

Any suggestions folks?

Edit 1:
-Ran Doom on ultra, maxed out AA, motion blur low, averaging around 100fps. Usually sits much higher than that.
-Ran Ashes of the Singularity on Crazy, DX12, averaging 60fps or so, I think the CPU is to blame for that lower FPS.
-This is all with 1 monitor at 1080p.

Edit 1:
-Added Heaven score below, still looks low compared to everyone's scores. CPU to blame?
-Heaven was showing 2088MHz also, but Precision was showing closer to 2000.

Your i7 920 is ancient it is a 2008 CPU, it is holding you back big time. Both your 3DMark score and Heaven score are very poor. In comparison I get 20k+ for Firestrike Graphic score on stock clocks. Around 100 fps for the first test with Firestrike.

If you were to upgrade to a 2K monitor, CPU would be less relevant for you in actual gaming scenarios. However, if benchmarking is your thing, the CPU is definitely holding you back. A 2K monitor is usually cheaper than a platform upgrade wink.gif.

Yea I'm actually impressed it's held up this long.
So I'm guessing the first graphics test uses some cpu?
At this point it's not effecting gaming, just benchmarks. And the card is performing well clock wise. But that's why I found it odd my graphics score was so low?

@pez
Can you expand on the 2k monitor part?
I would think the cpu has an easier time with 1080p.

Higher resolution adds GPU load, not CPU load. It's possible that it increases the CPU load slightly, but no more than that. So the higher the resolution, the less reliant on the CPU you are because you're going to hit the GPU bottleneck earlier. That said, increasing resolution is never going to increase your performance.

It's probably affecting gaming quite significantly depending on game, especially as you're playing at 1080P. Here you can compare Physics score with what I get with a modern 6700K at 4.8GHz with 3000MHz RAM.

Essentially this.

Higher resolutions will rely quite a bit less on CPU depending on the game. However, I don't know of many CPU-bound titles that are still relevant. Some Source engine stuff and RTS games usually put a beating on the CPU, but most stuff now scales very well at higher resolutions. I think the GTX 1070 is quite a fine card for 2K. It will require some anti-anti-aliasing in some titles, but it's a high enough resolution that AA becomes less relevant.

Going to try and search to see if I can find some benchmarks done with your CPU with newer cards.

EDIT: Not finding much, but it seems that even something like a 2500K would be less of an actual bottleneck for the card. However, I would just do a lot of testing in your normal usage before making the plan to upgrade blindly. You should see a huge jump regardless, but I wouldn't say your CPU is irrelevant just yet.

You don't need a platform upgrade. Just grab a $50 Xeon X5650 off of eBay and overclock it. With a bit of luck you can do 4.2 ghz easy. Check out the super long X58 Xeon thread in the Intel General forum.

I spent $70 on a X5670 a few months ago and just got a 1070: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/8937271

I ordered an MSI 1070 Gaming X on June 19th from Amazon and finally got an estimated delivery date of July 11th today. wheee.gif

With any luck (and one day shipping) it will be here this week. Glad I held out, I almost canceled my order yesterday to buy a 980Ti. Now whether Amazon is getting enough to actually have inventory or just fill all/some pre-orders, who knows?
