GigaByte - Performance Enhance ?????

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
What should this be set at?
I found the below three topics about it and they seem to suggest Standard or Turbo.
My system won't boot with Extreme.

-Standard = Lets system operate at its basic performance level.
-Turbo = Lets system operate at its good performance level (default)
-Extreme = Lets system operate at its best performance level.

Quote:
You are confusing the wording in their meaning of "The lower the performance enhance level..." (This doesn't mean that Standard<Enhance<Turbo, and therefore you should use Standard). It means that Standard 12 > Ehnance x > Turbo 8 and therefore you should use the lowest one which is Turbo.

yeah, i have always been curious about that too, mine is set at turbo right now, ive got a decent overclock on my i7@3.8. Does this have more to do with memory than CPU??

it adjusts the performance level on the ram, what it will set it to depends upon the ram quality, the fsb and ram timings you have it set too.

Hi,

to anybody who this concerns, Performance enhance in Gigabyte boards doesnt relate to ram overclock, or not something like that-

IF You are overclocking, as i am..

changing performance enhance from Norm. to turbo / extreme, will unlock fsb wall, how do you know when youve hit this wall,, benchmarking-benchmarking,,
i hit my fsb wall at 416, anything beyond that even 500 fsb, will show you a huge drop in ram ( specific: large ram allocate reading/writing) speed.


Performance enhance Is something to do with northbride, and fsb channels wich are connected to ram directly.

so fsb can run in even in 500 but if the wall is in somewhere lower, 500 doesnt give anything to performance unfortunately...

i would suggest, benchmarking in different fsb levels, 400,, 416 :-P,, 430 etc. try to leave the ram mhz at near same frequencys as possible...
post #7 of 23
ahh forgot to add,, performance enhance will unlock fsb frequency to higher mhz... if needed. i think this is the main purpose of this little option

The primary function of the Gigabyte Performance Enhance is controlling the Performance Level (Static tRead Value in Gigabyte boards). You should set Performance Enhance to Normal and instead control the Static tRead Value yourself. When overclocking, try from 7 and up. Lower is faster. If unstable, just increase it one step at a time.

Actually you are both wrong and right. I checked this with gigabyte. The standard, turbo and extreme settings does the following:

Standard gives the highest memory frequency but unaltered timing values.

Turbo gives a balance between frequency increase and lower timings.

Extreme gives the lowest possible settings for timing but may actually result in a lower frequency depending on memory.

Please do not bump a thread this old just to say that someone is wrong.
