The physics score is only one part of the test and yet you're harping on about it as if there's nothing else.
It is the one part of the test that does not meet the criteria for testing the hypothesis. I am not going on and on about it, i left it out. Others keep pointing to it over and over as proof of their point of view and saying see your are wrong.
#1: It does not implement the behavior that I am looking to investigate, namely when the CPU shows itself to be locked down to 3.0GHz in software monitoring. The Physics test does not show this. It clearly shows the CPU is allowed to increase its clocks during the run. It's not a valid test for understanding if the hypothesis is true or false. Specifically the "When Locked at 3.0GHz" part of the claim. If a scenario shows your clocks are going higher then we know you are getting the advantage of those clocks. The claim states that you gain those clocks even wen it shows you stay at 3.0GHz.
What's actually unwelcome is your attitude towards the help you've been given.
Its clearly unhelpful when its full of failed logic and fallacy, all of which i have pointed out. The only evidence levied at my data has 1st been the physics test scores, which i have debunk as being apples to oranges comparison. I'm only looking at apples.
2nd That my mental capacity is too small to understand how PC's work, but providing no actual data or evidence.
And 3rd, that my position is one that states my data PROVES my point of view is absolute, and no further testing or investigation is required. I actually never said this, and instead have been patiently waiting for others to provide meaningful data to the discussion. Instead they choose to sling fallacies. All of these evidence are forms of fallacies which i'm happy to provide some literature on here
. My position is always show me the data. I am still waiting.
Easiest way to debunk this would be to play a game and monitor CPU clocks and FPS. If the clocks stay at 3.0GHz the whole run record FPS with CPU locked at 3.0GHz in BIOS. Then do it again with CPU clocked at 3.7 to +4.0GHz in the BIOS. If bumping the clocks higher in the BIOS net you gains even when the software monitoring says you are always at 3.0GHz then i will concede that my result is probably limited to just the synthetic test i used. There is a reason i believe that's not the case though....
did you actually use the iGPU of that chip to play games or did you just run synthetic tests on it then declare it a failure? If so the failure is entirely on your part.
Why yes, playing games is actually why we decided to do some synthetic testing. We noticed while monitoring temps and other info in games like Evolve, Skyrim, Assassins Creed, Torchlight, and others my son plays regularly, that his CPU was down clocking to 3.0GHz during the entire run of the game. I was aware of Stilts claim because i read a fair bit of the AMD posts regularly and have since 2006 when i joined this site.
What i didn't notice was any significant impact when i bumped CPU clocks to improve performance which was odd considering what i had heard. I was mainly using the eye test and a FPS counter in steam as well as other monitoring tools like Afterburner and HWinfo, so i decided to do a more scientific test that could provide me some legit and repeatable numbers to share instead of just throwing out my anecdotal evidence. I developed a test anyone with the proper hardware and software could replicate and expand on when they had time to provide more evidence in making a decision on the future of Hypothesis #2. I did not have time to do proper in game benchmarks as those are harder to replicate, require multiple runs, and can be biased depending on the level/map/settings/ect used.
My results may indeed turn out to be limited to the synthetic, if they are i will be the first to admit it. Show me the data that provides evidence of this. My thought is that it will largely be case by case. I've made that claim in other parts of the Forum. In games that more closely resemble the stresses of GFX test 1 , 2, and the combined test; you will see no gains from CPU clocks above 3.0GHz without using the BIOS fix or software fixes. In games that more closely resemble the load of the physics test you should see measurable gains from higher CPU clocks.
