just a quick question, im doing some 3dmark 06 runs now, do the shaders make much difference? on an 8800gt 256mb in 3dmark 06. im currently at 800 core 1810 shaders 760mem, and wondering if its worth pushing shaders? or just keep going with core and mem?

just need a quick answer :-)

oh yea :-D

http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/8se8s/

3dmark 06 stable at above clocks on air :-)

900mhz core, 1800 shaders, 832 mem, getting 12881 3dmark 06 score, do you reckon a higher cpu clock would help? im running 3.6ghz e8400 for this, its using the stock heatsink, the 1.5" aluminum one, without any copper in it, so dont want to push it too hard lolz. under load at 900mhz im running 1.45-1.492... with ocp nipping at my toes lol, cant go much higher, and ***, rivatuner stops at 900mhz O_o

anyway, going to sleep, if anyone can answer any of my questions thats great, if not all good.

q's: do shaders make a difference in 3dmark06? is it worth pushing them?
reckon it would help if my e8400 was at higher than 3.6ghz for 3dmark 06?
what should i try to get a higher score?

cheers

I would say core is the most important followed by ram and then shaders but then again I allways just try to max everything out and see what I get. Usually do allright.

Thread Starter 
GPU>RAM>SHADERS

I find GPU clock and RAM to have a lot of bearing on benchmarks, the more vRAM present on the card the more points you will get from an additional clock.

I like to find my max gpu clock right from the start, followed by memory. Then I see if I can turn back my shaders to get a higher GPU clock,, if that doesn't work I will see if i can push the shaders further than they were linked.

I just did this with my volt modded 8800gtx's in SLI. After I found the top core clock of 710 (my 575) I pushed my shaders from being linked at 1666mhz to 1850 and my memory from 900 stock to 1175

In benchmarks like vantage shaders can play a large role, I'd say 06 depends a bit more or core clock and CPU core ofcourse, but if you can puush shaders higher it certainly won't hurt

now time for some benching

I picked up another 8800gt yesterday, got it all modded up & getting some scores in. This one is a BFG, but also has the Quimonda memory

Last 8800gt I got I went & got my stock & overclocked scores to compare how the mod would make a difference, the memory OCed to 1038 first time I OC it, then I did the mods & memory never went over 968 after the first time.

This time I did the vgpu mod first & found max clocks for the core & shaders before touching the memory, so I did the first memory OC while feeding the gpu 1.45V on a vantage run.
& it was the same thing, got the memory as far as 1024 from 900 for my best vantage run (4th place, hard to compete with decent overclocking ram), & now it can't clock over 950 since then.

I'll get my scores into hwbot & post up the points here to add the card.

Here is the BFG 8800 gt OC that I've done the vGPU mod on (quimonda mem, skipped the vmem mod). After submitting my scores it added 43.3 points to my total.

BFG 8800 GT (512) - 43.3 Points | 913/2288/1024 @ v1.45

Impressive clocks! Man I wish my 8800GT's RAM didnt start flaking out on me.

Freezing is a great way to bring memory back to life. Stick it in the freezer for a 30 mins.

Funny you mention that, last night I was measuring my case & the deep freeze to see if the whole thing would fit inside (damn lian li cube case is 5 inches too big). I was thinking use the aluminum foil type tape to seal up around the cables & it should be fine to to run a bench for 10 minutes, shut down & let it cool, repeat...

Since I'm flooding hwbot with submissions I'll also add this radeon x550

Radeon x550 128 Mb - 5 Points | 693/*/324 @ v1.43/

Only worth 5 points because there's only about 20 users in each bench, but good for 5 bronze cups.
http://hwbot.org/hardware/videocard/...ll%20of%20fame


And I'll update my gtx 285 submission since I went a bit further on the mods & added some 2 x gpu scores

Single Evga gtx 285 - 98.5 Points | 833/1804/1545 @ v1.28/
2 x Evga gtx 285 - 54.5 Points | 821/1789/1520 @ v1.28/
