3Way Crossfire.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So my friend brought his Sapphire HD3870 512mb over yesterday to do some benchmarking on my system. I installed his HD3870 with my 3870x2, e8400 and kingston PC9600 ram. We reformatted with fresh copy of vista, nothing installed except Catalyst 8.3 drivers and Riva Tuner. I overclocked my e8400 to 4.0 ghz on a Zalman 9700 through bios. Then overclocked my gpus with riva tuner to 950mhz core clock, with the stock fans at 77%.
I ran 3dmark06 and scored a whopping 23,678. All on air cooling


I am impressed, does anyone have 3dmark06 benches with similar hardware and two 3870x2's?

saw some similar spec as yours. not CFx though
CPU - Q9450 @ 3.77G
GPU - 3870x2 3870 crossfire.

3DMARK06 - 21446

You beat Q9450!

Did you not have an orb link? I have a REALLY hard time believing that score.

Reasons being:

1. test is influenced heavily by cpu frequency and you aren't out scoring quad-fire and qx9650's at the same speeds.
2. Rivatuner does not overclock all cores.
3. same 8.3 drivers (NON-Hotfix) check sig for score with ALL 3 cores at 918mhz and 4.653ghz on the e8400.

Plus I can tell you w/o a doubt that 3870's and x2's won't hit 950mhz core on stock volts.. and pass 3dmark06.. no way no how. Plus there is no strap for 950mhz.. you either can have 945 or 958.


Infact a lot of hd3870's wont hit higher than 862 w/o a flash.

well i am telling the full truth, and nothing but the truth my friend. On a few clocks, I rounded up (core clock of gpu was actually 943.) Do you really think I am lying?

Well, i didnt take any screenshots, so I guess we will pretend it never happened?

Every orb link I check never works. Does anyone know how to make an orb link work.

Yeah you register.. make it public and use the compare link

However, nobody believes that score because it defies reality.

3way crossfire is NOT going to produce better scores in 3dmark06 than an equally clocked qx9650 and quad-fire. I don't care how much you try to convince me that it's real, I know that it is NOT, and that rivatuner does NOT overclock all 3 cores. For giggles I ran 640x480 res at 4.4ghz on an e8400 and 3way crossfire and the score you said you got still out done mine.

so Yeah, you are indeed a liar pal.


A standing challenge to you since you have the hd3800 cards made from the hands of jesus himself... beat my score with 4.0ghz.. heck I'll even let you use 4.2ghz.. I'll give you 100 bucks.. use the standard default settings.
