Radeon 4000 Armageddon Competition

post #1 of 214
Thread Starter 

RADEON 4000 ARMAGEDDON

 

Were the Radeon 4000 series of graphics cards the greatest ever created by AMD?  It certainly ranks high simply because of the dramatic turn around from -- to be generous -- an ignored HD 2900 card to a mediocre 3000 series.  The Radeon HD 4000 series has long been beloved by overclockers and now Overclock.net wants to revist 2009, a time when ATI red still decorated shrouds.

 

The Radeon 4000 Armageddon Competition will feature 4 stages and you may compete in all 4 if you wish.   Your score will consist of your best attempts at 2 of the 4 stages.  Only the highest points you gather from any two stages will be counted towards your total score.  The overclocker with the highest score at the end of the competition will be the winner.

 


 

START: OCTOBER 1, 2016 (00:01 EST)    FINISH: NOVEMBER 30, 2016 (11:59 EST)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

These have been asked and answered! (Click to show)
I bought three Radeon HD 4580 for this competition can I use them?
 
No.
 
But I'm past the 30 day return window on eBay, they are Radeon HD 4000 series, so what gives?
 
All of the original Radeon 4000 series are based on the Radeon R700 chip which was introduced in late 2008/2009.  The 4580 was introduced in 2011 and based on the R600 series of chips.  To keep it level, they have been banned.

I submitted the top Vantage score but the leaderboard is showing much lower number?
 
For this competition, only the portion of the score that is for the GPU will be used for Stage 3.  It will be listed just below the main score you would normally submit.
 

 

Furmageddon?  I don't see this at HWBOT, seems pretty ridiculous...
 
Stage 4 is all about finding the absolute bleeding edge of your HD 4000 series Radeon R700 core.  3dMark stability is too stable.  10 seconds of burn from Furmark provides an easy way to measure just how fast your HD 4xxx is.  Furmark stability to validate your core Mhz.

So how do you even submit a score for this stage?
 
The score is your GPU core clocks. You will need to run Furmark in the following way:
 
1 - Go to the settings:
 

 

2: "Burn-in" must be checked off.  Set the Benchmark duration to 10000ms or more for extra insanity.

 

 

3. Make sure resolution is set to 1280 x 720 and push "Custom Preset".

 

 

4.  Create your screenshot with the Furmark results, the usual two CPUz instances, and single GPUz instance.  

 

 

That example screenshot shows a R7 250, can I use mine in this competition?

 

No.
