Used 5870

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got a used Asus 5870 v1 from someone on here to go with my Asus 5870 v2. I would like to test it out to make sure everything is good with it and I have a few questions.

First I was wondering if I should compare every last detail of these two cards other than the different cooler and lack of voltage adjustment? For example, if I were to play crysis should I expect the FPS for both cards to be exact or extremely close?

Would 3dark Vantage be a good way to compare numbers from a pure benchmarking standpoint?

How would you test the card out to make sure it was in perfect working order?

This is the first used PC component I have ever bought and I want to make sure everything is good with it.

As long as youre using the same drivers, ect. gaming performance should be exactly the same (maybe a very slight bit higher for v2 as they may have made optimizations to the revision, but shouldn't be more than 1 - 2 fps)

Run some software such as 3DMark, Heaven, Crysis benchmark etc. to stress the GPU and give you some solid comparison numbers (run each 3 times to eliminate error potential)

technically, if something works at stock clocks, Its usually fine. Overclocking could be a different story, as some chips just overclock better than others.

I went to my friends house to test it out because he has the exact same card (reference model) and we tested a few things. Numbers in 3dmark were near identical then we played crysis 1 and 2. In crysis 1, numbers were around the same and the same for crysis 2. When I got home, I got my cfx setup all together and tested my frames in crysis 1 against his cfx setup and numbers were good.

However, for some reason when I use the v1 card as the primary card in my system, nothing is scaled to full screen until it reaches the windows login. When I used it in my friends system, everything was scaled properly. He has a 30 inch at 2560 x 1600 and I use a 24 inch at 1920 x 1080.
