x1900XTX VS x7900GTX "Debate" - Page 16

You guys might want to read this and other threads there. I didn't read the whole thread but I believe both cards are on air. The debate continues ...

EDIT: My bad. On air max looks to be 770s for GTX core speed so far. They still hit 1GHz, just not on air.

what is he using to overclock there? Is is buildt into 3d marK? I can't get coolbits to let me go real high. Any suggestions?

Most settings on max, if you want to know specifics, I can print them.

Half Life LC x1900xtx=49.35
7900gt's in SLI=60.2
Fear stress test x1900xtx= min=31
avg=51
max=67
0% below 25
13% between 25 and 40
87% above 40
7900gt's= min=47
avg=51
max=80
0% below 25
0% between 25-40
100% above 40 (when I enabled soft shadows went to 0-10-90, where as ati was 0-43-57)

Ran 3dmark06 on ati with no overclocking and got:
3834
sm2.0=1586
hdr/sm3.0=1985
cpu=853

NOW 7900GT's !!! (now these are overclocked to 550/1600, can't seem to get core to clock higher with coolbits, any other program better so I can get it higher???)
5403
sm2.0=2558
hdr/sm3.0=3365
cpu=854

That is a big difference though it was overclocked. But everything just looks better. And it looks amazing on the 27" LCD. So what are your thoughts. I am convinced this was the better purchase, hands down. I'm leaving now to return the ati card with a big smile. I will overclock my cpu and memory tonight to see how much faster I get everything. O, and res for fear was 1280*720, and res for hl was 1024*768 16:9. I would love more tips on overclocking the gpu's but I can ask in the overclocking forum if that is more appropriate.....
the performance isn't that far apart, so comparing 2 cards to 1 doesn't give such a fair comparison.

yeah also thanks for sharing that info, but this thread is about debating one single card to another.

I already posted benches for the 7900GTX single... I need to change my info because I am only running one card right now. I had to RMA my second card because it was displaying artifacts at stock settings. Since I just bought Fear a couple days ago (I love it, by the way), I could run the stress test on it to see what it gives me, but it may not be very accurate, considering the fact that I have had to modify it's config files to get it to run in my widescreen resolution.

Let me see...

ok.

I'm running Fear with all the in-game settings as high as possible on a native resolution of 1920x1080

Min FPS = 29
Avg FPS = 49
Max FPS = 63

0% below 25 FPS
15% between 25 and 40 FPS
85% above 40 FPS

I've been playing it all night (it RAWKS!) at the highest settings on my 37" monitor and have not noticed any stuttering or slowdowns...

I'm also currently ranked 12th (2nd among those with one card) in the graphics benchmarking thread, with all stock speeds. I have no doubt at all that one of you more experienced overclockers could put this machine in the top 5, at the very least, and with my second card coming, perhaps even rank #1.

I'm sure that the X1900XTX is an amazing card to have, but given some of the things that are not in dispute about it (like the fact that it is noisy), and the fact that xfire has not been around long enough to have some of the kinks worked out of it, I feel very satisfied with the route that I chose with my video card(s)
