My 6800 has arrived, need advice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so my 6800 got here today and outta the box aquamark3 scores 50,542. This is quite impressive as my fx5200 struggled to top 10,000 @ 300/420. I was just wondering if this is acceptable because cs source only runs around 150 fps sometimes dipping to 80, I was kinda expecting it to get a solid 500fps. My fx5200 ran a SOLID 60 fps, on the most graphiclly intense maps in battles with 5+ people at once I might see 30 at the very least. I'm thinking everything is installed correctly because the benchmarks are so much higher. In all fairness with the fx5200 I ran source under dx8.1 with low settings and now run dx9 with high settings and 4x,6x, but still where's my 500fps. Oh yeah my fx5200 got 7-9fps running under dx9 with low settings... Anyway, my card is running VERY cool as I got the one with the good hsf so I'm ready to clock, anyone else have the evga geforce6800 and how many pipes you got, at what rates?

this card here

And also where do I look to see if I have 12 or 16 pipes, I'm thinking it has 16 outta the box because tiger direct advertises 16 and they're usually carefull about that kinda thing. I know rivatuner will tell ya but is it in the registry or somwhere else, I don't want to get rivatuner just to check. I use coolbits. thx for any info/advise. Reference aquamark3 score would also be helpfull.

Edit: AAAAhahahhah Look what I just found, the same kinda card I have for pci-e 1.costs more 2.has lower clock rates 3.has less performance

That makes me feel better, oh yeah here it is

I think your expectations of 500 fps is not realistic. The card definatley sounds as though it is working properly though (congrats). Dont forget that even if the card could do 500 fps, it is unlikely that your processor would be able to keep up.

our good ol friend nooblar has his ega clocked like 800/1000 or something like that, i think he has the highest clock for vanilla 6800.. but he got a 7800 now. lol xD

Where in the world did you think you could get 500fps in CSS? No card (not even the 7800gtx) can reach that high. To unlock the extra pipelines, simply download RivaTuner and there should be a FAQ on it to easily unlock from there.

I was just hoping it would be superfly 500+fps no lag 5,000 degrees kinda thing. I guess that is outta reach eh?

anyway been playing and here is what I've got so far, playing it safe just got this damn thing today gotta wait at least a couple months before I melt it

Aquamark3 scores
42,942stock cpu, stock vid, @325/700
45,800 stock cpu, vid@, 375/799
50,939 cpu @3200+ (2.2ghz) vid stock ^
56,062 cpu@3200+ ^ vid@, 375/799

P.S. it may be 12 pipes
