hm... looks about the same as when i just had one 480....

still.. 460s in SLI have always been a good setup....

also.. as future reference...

if you have a one 460, 470, 480, 560, 570 or 580...

just get another one if you can do SLI

it is better $$$/Performance

I believe mine was from a 915 core run, I game at 900 and fold there as well.

I think the tessellation is what brings you down a bit. Its one of the reasons I opted for the gtx 470 (ok the $185 price was the only reason that mattered).

The gtx 460's will perform better with lower settings than a gtx 470 will, but they seem to bog down when you start adding a lot of eye candy. Tessellation can take out the high end AMD cards too.

With 2011 coming up and knowing there were going to be a lot of new DX11 games bringing stupid amounts of eye candy I wanted a bit more horsepower than I could get with a gtx 460 setup, but I didn't have the money. Up until about 10 minutes before I bought my gtx 470 I was looking at 460's they were great cards and still are.

Either way the point is to get the most money out of what you buy, and spend the least amount of it you can - at least for many of us -. My putting a gpu block on it wasn't really the best price > performance move ever, but its a great toy to have when overclocking becomes a hobby like it has for me.

Even though it's OT, now that I have my 2nd 460 back I took a crack at this bench for kicks. I don't know how I outscored you with my cards at their stock clocks though (780/1560/1800)

The settings are the same, no?

Could be ram, could be your settings in control panel, could be something else...

Odd he has better min and max, just not overall.

seems within the realm of possibility. my OC is not extreme (70MHz on core compared to our stock clocks) and i'm running an i5-2500K. and as Balla said, ram, control panel etc. plus i left AV running, STEAM, etc. for that run.

Yah mine wasn't an optimized run by any stretch of the imagination.. Maybe once I get my setup going again I'll do another run, 930 core or so without a second monitor running off it

your heaven score is fantastic. do you have Metro 2033? i'd be curious to see how our setups stack up against each other in their canned benchmark.

I don't even have a desktop right now, I'd be happy to bench my laptop for you though


T6500 2.1GHz @ 2.5GHz, 9400m 450/1100 running 550/1250... haha... sadness

Nope, waiting on my refunds to process, then I gotta locate either a UD4 or Asus Pro... dunno if I can with them all being recalled.
