I just posted this to another thread, but thought I could possibly get some more help here?
"I'm sorry if this may be slightly unrelated but I didn't want to start a new topic just for this.
I'm pretty new to all this graphics card stuff (well, just computer building in general!) so I apologize if I don't know certain terminology and stuff!
I recently built my first PC, with this 7870 Myst card. I just wanted to check that the card was okay before I cut off the UPC/SN for the rebate and I think someone suggested the 3D mark 11 test?
So I ran that and here were my results at stock (I didn't change any settings, just as it was):
Now, I don't really know what these numbers mean but I assume that my results were a little on the low end? Is this normal?
I think I saw someone else do the same benchmark but their scores were a lot higher (in the 8000s maybe?).
I found it (was actually someone who posted on these forums):
If not, are there settings I can tweak or something to make it perform better (or at least average, I guess). I don't plan on OC'ing yet though!
Thanks in advance!"
I was able to OC my GPU to 1200/1500 with these results:
But I don't think they're quite there yet. Someone says I should be reaching 9000+ with 1200 and that my GPU is being.. throttled? Anyone know how to fix this?Edited by iamafathamster - 3/1/13 at 12:48am
