gtx 460 oc - unexpected results

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hi all, comparing my recently built rig to an anandtech test rig. to me it seems like every component i have is superior to that in the test, yet my frames are lower. what gives? any ideas?

anandtech test rig:
CPU: Intel Core i7-920 @ 3.33GHz
Motherboard: Asus Rampage II Extreme
Chipset Drivers: Intel 9.1.1.1015 (Intel)
Hard Disk: OCZ Summit (120GB)
Memory: Patriot Viper DDR3-1333 3 x 2GB (7-7-7-20)
EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1GB FTW
Video Drivers: NVIDIA ForceWare 260.89
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

my rig:
i5-2500k @ 48 * 102 = 4896
asus p8p67 pro
crysis on ssd
gskill ripjaw mem
evga geforce gtx 460 1gb ssc+
win7 64-bit enterprise

my card:
ssc card oem: core/shader/mem 850/1700/3900
ftw: 850/1700/4000 (comparison)
my oc: 910/1820/4010

regarding differences, i don't think it's due to memory bandwidth or latency per


nor cpu differences per


here is the test rig with the ftw


now my computer seems to be superior as far as i can tell in all aspects, with more clock and bandwidth of that rig. yet that rig seems to handily beat my results. thoughts?

They got 50 on the bottom test and you got 49.88, seems close to me. Do you think they might have rounded up?

To pull 90 FPS on Crysis they were not using 1 GTX460 at the same settings as the lower test. 1 GTX570 wont even do that on a high settings.

Looks pretty close, I wouldn't be too worried about it.

i don't think they rounded up. the top 2 were to show that i don't think there's any difference as a result of their memory (better CAS) nor the cpu (greater L3 cache) - the only screenshot that has the final one is the test rig. from what i can tell, my machine is non-trivially faster than the test rig on every single metric. they appear to be rounding to the closest tenth.

the test rig card is clocked at 850/1700/4000.

mine is again non-trivially overclocked to 910/1820/4010.

not once did i even break 49 - you don't find these results strange??

I've got 825/1650/2000 on stock volts, but I think I'll bump it up a bit this weekend. Gotta get more PPD...

Say wha? To compare numbers you have to run the same test.

EDIT: I'm sorta confused by what numbers you're comparing. Is it just the last ones against the FTW?

As usual the game is GPU dependent, you can OC your CPU as much as you want and it won't change a thing. Your numbers are very close at similar clocks. Seems to make sense.

yes, against the FTW in the last pic. by every metric i look at i can only conclude that my results should at worst be the same, and suspect that they should be significantly better. however mine are lower. afaik i'm running the exact same test.
