That is true...

I'm not sure to be honest, im going to run through again, Ive reinstalled the latest drivers for the 590, DX11 from The Witcher 2.

See how it goes

EDIT: P6990, my GPU only score is always 9000, but my CPU is just crummy at this benchmark.

Oh well, I can max the witcher 2 (no ubersampling) and Crysis, Its powerful enough till I upgrade the core components of my system next year or the year after.

Games are running really well, SOme of the more recent games I own are Metro 2033, Crysis 1 and 2, the Witcher 2, and Assassins Creed Brotherhood.

And I can max them all at good fluid frame rates.

SLI Is enabled yes, My CPU is no good at handling the dedicated CPU PhysX part of 3DMark11

Anybody having performance issues that are unexplained, go back to the basics.

Fresh install of drivers.

Re-install benchmarks.

If you just switched brands of cards, make sure to remove all traces of AMD/nVidia drivers before installing fresh drivers. That doesn't include ForceWare Custom Install, Clean mode, you have to remove them all in safe mode.

Make sure Win7 is up to date.

Make sure nothing else is running.

Make sure SLI is enabled in NVCP.

Set 3D Performance Settings to Single Monitor / Prefer maximum performance, or Multi-monitor if you are doing triple monitor.

If you are running triple monitor, test single monitor.

If your issue is only 3Dmark11, chances are its just 3DMark11. Consensus is though, there are no 590 + 3DMark11 specific issues unless there is something new going on.

Make sure to try drivers 280.19/280.26. 280.19 is overclocking central, 280.26 is stability central.

Make sure your CPU overclock is stable testing. Don't make others work when you haven't tested your own system out. Its borderline rude.

Scale back on CPU overclock and test if there is any performance difference. If 4400 MHz is better than 4800 MHz, chances are you have instability. If 3.8 GHz is worse than stock, you have stability issues. Again test it out with Prime95/IBT, don't waste peoples time IF you haven't done this already. Nothing urks me more than finding this out the OC has never been stress tested, and listening to people whine about how Minecraft plays fine for months, this shouldn't be an issue.

Make sure that there is adequate voltage on the GPUs and that there isn't a weird BIOS or new 590 out there acting weird. Consensus is for stock, you need to be 0.913v for 607~620 MHz. On 280.19/280.26 drivers though there is a fake voltage increase, so if you need 0.913v, you have to set 0.925v in Afterburner. Its annoying I know, call nVidia. That also goes double for EVGA users, our stock is 0.925v, but we need 0.938v in afterburner for ACTUAL 0.925v.

If benchmarking, make sure you have no custom 3D Global Settings on, i.e. restore drivers to default.

Make sure you have your PCI-E 8xPIN cables plugged all the way in, mine are 6+2 and the +2 part always gets nudged out which is annoying to troubleshoot. Its now the first thing I check. The cards WILL run on gimped power to a certain extent. I discovered this after my first month of troubleshooting just to find a +2 pin just hanging out willy nilly.

Make sure your PSU can deliver at least 50 AMPs on the Single rail, and if its multi-rail PSUs, make sure that they are running from 2 indepdent 12v rails. Reason for this is, two connections from the same rail have max output of usually 20~30 AMPs. But if you use a connection off of two different rails. Your max output is 40~60 AMPs. If you are quad-SLI and its always crashing even at stock... you should have one of the recommend PSUs by nVidia. If not, everything else is a roll of the dice. I can confirm that an Ultra X4/X3 at 1200W will do the job, but its nowhere near as stable as my Antec HPC 1200.

If all else fails, try a Win7 reformat if its not a fresh install.

Thankyou, and dayum!!

Lots for me to check, lots to think about now.

Anyone else getting character artifacting from their 590s?





Edit: And are my scores normal? (Settings are at Stock Performance (P) 1280x720 w/ moderate load suitable for most gaming PCs.)

The Artifacting is because Deus Ex has garbage coding for DX11, I get the exact same thing. If you switch DX11 off and just max out settings on DX10/9, whichever it uses, you wont notice any difference but itll run butter smooth and clean.

That score is ok if you are either stock or barely overclocked on the 590, otherwise its low. You should be in the 10k's on a moderate overclock.

I had a similar issue briefly - changing shadows from 'Soft' to 'Normal' sorted it for me. Your score is 'ok' but as Tept said - a mild overclock is always worth trying
