You talkin about me?
Well you do have a smoking fast system with dual 6970's but I was talking about this guy:
NOTE: I edited his quote to hide his picture in a spoiler so as not to re-post it again.
P7587 single 580 vs P 7983 dual 6970 and he's 5.22% higher overall.
His aggregate graphics score is barely higher, his i7 is blowing my i5 out of the water in physics, but his combined score is significantly lower.
I figure if I had an i7 that I could easily close the 5% gap and catch him.
Test 6970 580 Who's higher by what margin
GT1 29.03 33.26 580 14.57%
GT2 39.13 33.70 6970 16.11%
GT3 46.49 47.03 6970 1.01%
GT4 24.73 22.99 6970 7.44%
PT 42.90 26.97 i7-980x 59.07%
CT 31.59 36.83 580 16.59%
Graphics 7543 7389 6970 2.08%
Physics 13513 8496 i7-980x 59.05%
Combined 679 1 7917 580 16.58%

I won't fill the board up with duplicate pictures, so I'm just showing the link (which was posted in my response.)EDIT:
Note, as someone noticed and rep'd for, the latest WHQL 8562 driver is faster
than the FM approved WHQL earlier 8026 driver.[/b] It's faster at equal clocks and in some cases the 8562 driver is faster at a lower clock speed than the 8026 is at a higher clock. Oddly enough though, the 8026 was more stable at higher clocks in 3DMark11, even if it didn't perform as well. I'm still tinkering with Heaven benchmark and I of the two benchmarks, Heaven seems to be a better stability test as it will crash where 3DMark11 will remain stable.
The clock I'm using is folding without errors, so I know it's stable.Edited by shad0wfax - 12/18/11 at 2:53pm
