Is my cpu bottlenecking?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's what's going on. I have an unlocked 720 at 3.6ghz and a radeon hd 6950. When I do the supposed unlock, i don't get much of an increase when benching at the same speeds (800 core/ 1250 mem). What do you guys think?


Thanks in advance,

Surely your CPU isnt the culprit. It is still a qaud-core and you are only running a single GPU. There is only supposed to be a 5% increase in performance doing the unlock, so thats probably what you are seeing.

thanks for the quick reply. Turns out I compared the wrong results tongue.gif but my 3dmark vantage scores r lower than what i would be expecting (16K for the 6950 settings and 19K for 6970). Aside from that, I did get an extra 1K more with it unlocked at the same clocks.
