Bottleneck anyone?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I just upgraded to a new GPU, EVGA GTX 580SC.

I run some benchmarks when I get it obviously and compare to my previous EVGA GTX 470.

Stock CPU (2.4GHz) for all benchmarks

These are my results...

I ran Crysis benchmark at very high, DirectX10, 1900x1200, 64-bit, 8xAA

EVGA GTX 470 @ 815/1900 ----- Avg. fps of 26.37

EVGA GTX 580SC @ stock -------Avg. fps of 24.25

Bottleneck? Or something else?


Here is a screenie


I also ran the Heaven benchmark with better results:


EVGA GTX 470 @ stock ----- Avg. fps of 29.8

EVGA GTX 580SC @ stock -------Avg. fps of 45.1

with these settings

I would think that your CPU is limited you on Crysis.

Yea, I'm thinking CPU bottleneck or my power supply?

I do have 4 hard drives, 3 ROM drives, 5 fans etc.. hooked up to it. But a 750W should be enough for that should it not?

Were both tests performed with the latest drivers from nvidia? (I think the most recent non-beta are like 266.58 version)

Well the GTX 580 test was with the new drivers. The GTX 470 run was from summer of 2010 with the latest drivers at that time.
