The HD6990 Upgrade Benchmark Thread


Rig
Intel Xeon i7 W3520 D0-Stepping (H20)
EVGA X58 Classified (H20)
GSkill 3x3 2GB (6GB) DDR3-1600
Silverstone 1kw PSU

CPU
STOCK = 2.67ghz
OVERCLOCK = 4.0ghz

Cards
Visiontek 4870x2 2GB DDR5 1600 SPUs
Clocks = 750/900
Driver = Catalyst 11.2

Visiontek 6990 4GB DDR5 3072 SPUs
Clocks = 830/1250
Driver = Catalyst 11.4 Preview

The clocks for the cards I decided to remain the same for now. Don't fret, I'll update soon with some 6990 overclocking.
The 6990 BIOS switch is in POSITION 2 which is the factory shipped stock, in other words - the card is completely stock. More on this later.



FurMark v1.70

STOCK
1920x1080
MSAA = 0


4870x2 FPS Min = 77 | Max = 124 | Avg = 92
6990 FPS Min = 221 | Max = 338 | Avg = 259

1920x1080
MSAA = 8x


4870x2 FPS Min = 24 | Max = 49 | Avg = 31
6990 FPS Min = 61 | Max = 113 | Avg = 74

OVERCLOCK
Results were exactly same, FurMark isn't affected by CPU.

Conclusion
The 6990 nearly triples the 4870x2 without AA but with 8x AA it only doubles. CPU overclock doesn't affect the rates at all.

Conclusion
The 4870x2 certainly shows its age with still only a rough 30FPS on average. Overclocking, again, doesn't do too much but does have minor improvements.

---------------------------

FarCry 2 DX9

Demo Ranch Small
1920x1080

STOCK
4870x2 FPS Min 30.4 | Max 85.2 | Avg 46.8
6990 FPS Min 54.8 | Max 153.4 | Avg 84.9

OVERCLOCK
4870x2 FPS Min 28.3 | Max 81.5 | Avg 45.8
6990 FPS Min 70.9 | Max 215.3 | Avg 116.3

Conclusion
FarCry2 clearly gives the 4870x2 a run for its money. And the 6990 shows significant improves, hitting a max 215 during the beginning of the bench with an overclock.
The overclock for the 4870x2 is strange. Clearly, the 2.67ghz clock is bottlenecking the 6990 in the first bench but not the 4870x2. With a 4.0ghz, the 6990 gets almost 40FPS more while the 4870x2 remains the same, almost loosing a few FPS here and there. I remember seeing this way back when I got my 4870x2 and FarCry 2 I couldn't figure it out. It's strange no?

------------------------
FarCry 2 DX10

Demo Ranch Small

6990 FPS Min 69.7 | Max 153.1 | Avg 102.9

Overclock

4870x2 FPS Min 39.8 | 102.9 | Avg 59.37
6990 FPS Min 100.51 | 213.1 | Avg 141.6

Conclusion
Again we see more of the same with the overclocking situation. The 4870x2 stays at ~60FPS even with 4.0ghz. The 6990 on the other hand gains almost ~40FPS.
Though, note how the 4870x2 gains around 10-15FPS and the 6990 gains almost 15-25FPS while using DX10 for FarCry 2. Alot of people don't give DX10 enough credit in my opinion, because this shows up with several games.

--------------------------------------

Devil May Cry 4 DX10
Note, Devil May Cry 4 is a variable benchmark. Every time you run the benchmark - different things happen in the game. The AI plays itself in random manners, making it a good way to test overall gameplay rather than static benchmarks but are not good for direct comparisons.
Sadly, DMC4 doesn't have a fixed benchmark but Capcom learns with RE5.

6990 Scene1 376 | Scene2 290.1 | Scene3 457.7 | Scene4 276.2

Conclusion
Why did I use this game? Well DMC4 is a fantastically detailed game. Environments at first glance are nice, somewhat flat under scrutiny but it has lots of character model detail, effects, and animations. It's one of the most prettiest games I've played in my opinion on any platform, and the details show alot during cutscenes when the camera gets close to characters. Yet, you can run the game with somewhat older hardware and get freakin 207FPS in DX10 for example. That's insane for a game that looks as good as DMC4. Capcom knows how to PC port their games and how to optimize them as well. DX10 is partly to blame, I didn't do DX9 benches and kinda wish I did because they show again how well DX10 can help performance.
Both cards blow the game out of the water due to Capcom's fantastic work. The 6990 is fantastic with almost 376FPS in the first Scene, with the help of some overclocking. Hard to directly compare due to the random AI.
-------------------------------------------

Resident Evil 5 DX10 Variable
Again, like DMC4 it's a variable benchmark. Good for actual gameplay performance but harder to directly compare. Luckily there is a fixed bench which we will get to later.

6990 Area1 271.4 | Area2 182.4 | Area3 121.7 | Area4 175.9

Conclusions
The reason I used this game as well, is just like DMC4. I think RE5 is easily on the best looking games ever, especially on the consoles. That might sound biased due the fact I'm a diehard RE fan but take my word for what you will. If you played the game on either PC or consoles, and actually look at the amount of detail in the environments and character models (ESPECIALLY in the cutscenes like in DMC4) you'd be baffled. You can see on Chris' clothes for example all the different materials its made out of. It's the most incredible texture detail ever, yet the game runs at a staggering ~100FPS for the most part. This game looks 3x better than most games that barely even run ~40FPS on my 4870x2. I even think RE5 looks way better than Metro2033, and yet Metro barely even runs on most systems at max. Capcom doesn't get enough credit.
Ok, first off, Area 1 is not a variable scene. It's a fixed cutscene, the rest are AI gameplay demos like DMC4 which are harder to compare but still give us a better idea of framerates for actual gameplay.
The 4870x2 does fantastic in this game, and of course (who would've known?) the 6990 comes close to doubling it in some except for Area 2. The 4870x2 is only 20FPS away from the 6990 which is probably the closest gap so far.

RE5 is SUPER CPU INTENSIVE. The 6990 gets an 80FPS boost in Area 2. Area 4 gets ~50FPS more. Area 1 stays the same because there is no AI present, it's a static cutscene. All the other areas though have tons of AI enemies running around. The 4870x2 sees some improvements too, but nothing as dramatic at the 6990 so it's clear there was some bottlenecking occurring as well.

Conclusion
Shocking. Quite.
The 4870x2 is only 4FPS slower at stock. Throw in some 4.0ghz goodness and only then do we see an increase.
In this fixed bench, we have at least 25 or so AI entities present so it only makes sense that the CPU would make the most difference but the 6990 is obviously bottlenecked as well at stock.

Conclusion
I used FRAMEBUFFER Benchmark Tool 0.33 for this. Its demos arent the best in the world but they get the job done and I've seen this used a lot by people before.
Well, Im not quite sure what's going on here. I expected ALOT more from 6990. Perhaps I shouldnt have?
Overclocking helps a bit, but I still feel like there is something wrong here.

Sun Min 30.3 Avg 50.6 Max 73.9

OVERCLOCK
Same results.

Conclusion
STALKER Call of Pripyat is a pretty intense bench. The 4870x2 struggles with it and the 6990 fairs pretty well - pushing out steady 60FPS. No complaints here!
Overclocking surprisingly does nothing for this bench for either cards. You'd think something like an open world game like STALKER would be greatly affected by it.

3DMark 06

STOCK

4870x2 = P18077
6990 = P18819

STOCK
4870x2 = P24224
6990 = P26672

Conclusion
Wow. Really disappointing here for the 6990. No doubt there is an increase when overclocked, but not a whole lot. There is clearly a bottleneck on the 6990 without the overclocked CPU but it performs even worse than the 4870x2 in the first benchmark. It's surprising.

Conclusion
Very nice, big big big different as compared to 3DMark 06.
Overclocking gives almost an entire 6000 point difference for the 6990.

DX11 Fun (6990 Only)


3DMark 11

STOCK = P8026
OVERCLOCK = P9153

Conclusion
3DMark 11 is pretty intense of a benchmark. I personally dislike the visuals compared to the performance you get from it. It's not THAT amazing looking, yet everything struggles to run it.
For giggles, here is a Core i5 & GTX570 bench I did back in December too. It only got P4978. So the 6990 and my i7 effectively double that almost.

----------------------

Alien vs Predator DX11

STOCK = Min 75 Max 186 Avg 117
OVERCLOCKED = Min 72 Max 190 Avg 116.2

Conclusion
While overclocked, it caused me to BSOD when I double clicked the shortcut to turn it on giving me atimkpag.sys as the reason for the crash. It was odd... After a restart it ran fan, but still makes me wonder what caused it.
Doesn't seem like overclocking helps at all.

Sun Min 36.6 Avg 65.8 Max 108

Conclusion
Ok, this is odd for two reasons.
If you recall above, the avg for the 6990 was anywhere from 50-70 for all 4 benches in DX10. With DX11 AND Tesselation, the performance increases to 60-90 on avg.
Secondly, also recall above, overclocking didn't help the benchmarks in DX10. Now with DX11, overclocking helps significantly.

Lost Planet 2 DX11 Test B

DX11 High


STOCK = Avg 49.8
OVERCLOCK = Avg 52.2

Conclusion
I used Test B because, in the Capcom fashion, Test A was a variable benchmark. I would use A anyway but the AI is STUPID as hell as compared to DMC4 and RE5. The AI looks at the floor and walks into walls the entire time.
Anywho, DX11 certainly gives the 6990 a run for its money in this bench. The gigantic boss apparently has tesselation all over him and the water physics are two fold as compared to standard DX9.


----------------------------------------------

Final Words

You can expect some overclocking of the 6990 soon as well as more benchmarks perhaps if I find some good ones. I'm open for suggestions as well.
The 6990 is a great card. I only have two problems with the benches - Crysis underperformed to my expectations and so did 3DMark 06.
As for the card itself, I love it. The fan is not a problem like everyone makes it out to be. The only time the fan is really bad is when it's at 100% which no bench has come close to putting it at. I also do not like the size, it barely fits with my resevoir which means that all the heat being dumped by this huge hairdryer is going onto my res. Not good for CPU and Mobo temps but oh well.
Overclocking the CPU to 4.0ghz is only beneficial in a select few games and benches it seems. I might down it to 3.6 or 3.4 in order to compensate for the heat monster of the 6990 once I finish up any overclocking and other benches.

I hope you enjoyed. Please comments, recommend benches, or just other input
