[SOLVED-ish] GTX560 Ti Underperforming HD4870... - Page 3

post #21 of 41
Thread Starter 
CPU at 3600MHz
GPU at 900MHz Core Clock, Stock Memory Clock (1002MHz)

DESERT SUNRISE



Can anybody who has a 560 run a bench with these settings 900core for reference?

I fail to see the relevance of that.

Here's the test: Run benchmark at current speed, notate the results. Then overclock CPU in steps and see how much your GPU score increases. If it increases dramatically between 3.16 and lets say 4.0GHz then you know you have a CPU bottleneck.

Most likely the Core2Duo's architecture is insufficient to fully utilize the power of th 560.

I had a similar issue when I bought my 4870's for my 939 rig. Even though it was running at 3.0, it was bottlenecking one card, let alone 2. Then I bought an AM3 setup and even at a lower clock speed, I got considerably higher GPU scores. With 1 card it scored A LOT higher than with 2 on the 939 rig. And almost doubled the 939 result with 2 cards.

Perhaps it's time for an upgrade to the ix series CPUs.

Here is my run with the exact GPU clocks as yours with an i7-870 @ stock 2.83ghz with 2gb ram.

(Yes, I turned SLI off)

Turn GPU Water Simulation and that ugly ass bokeh filter off and you should be able to run it just fine! thumb.gif


EDIT: Here is a run with the exact same settings as above, only with Bokeh and GPU Water Simulation turned OFF!

well seems the OP's CPU is not up to what the 560ti's Horsepower..its just my opinion based on the facts..and also as observed..

He has BOKEH AND WATER SIMULATION ON! poke.gif

He's comparing a 4870 that was not running these things, with a 560 that IS! Once he turns that crap off, he'll be able to run this just fine!

You can clearly see in my benches that it nearly cuts the performance in half when running those two features...

you edited the post which i haven't seen..lolx..and yes if BOKEH and Water effects are off could cap higher than those..

OP: why are you worrying about it??if you can play JC2 with those on aren't you or should you not be happy about it??

Nononono. I turned Bokeh and GPU Water on AFTERWARDS just for the latest bench I posted. The benches in the OP are with Bokeh and GPU water TURNED OFF.

So it seems that with the GPU effects turned on, my FPS is similar to your guys' however, it when the effects are turned off, your FPS shoots up way higher. This is pretty indicative of a CPU bottleneck to me. Glad to know though that the 560 is performing where it should be.

I just wanted to see if my new $229 investment was performing at the levels it should... you can imagine that seeing underperform a 4870 was slightly disheartening.


EDIT: Here is also my 3DMark 11 Performance run.
