Yesterday I decided I wanted to give Haswell a try on dice... My chip didn't seem to be anything special going off the batch (L310B492, 1.475V 5GHz 32M) but I had read that this batch had been decent for a few people. Jury is still out on that, but it's pretty bad on dice.
Since this was a first test, I wasn't really concerned with efficiency or any of that. Next treatment will likely be with LN2, so max clocks and all of that will be higher. I just snagged 8 lbs of dice because I was bored!
Here are the scores:6.156s Super Pi 1M at 5.8GHz with memory at 2800 9-12-12 24 1T5m49.656s Super Pi 32M at 5.5GHz with memory at 2666 10-12-12 31 2T
(XMP set, not tuned at all, not max frequency)11.89s Pifast at 5.5GHz with memory at 2800 9-12-12 24 1T
(not max, running out of dice)4.092s WPrime 32M at 5.5GHz
(Notepad tweak, probably not max frequency)
I also had a go with my GTX 275 Lightning... I needed an easy card to bench and using Afterburner 1.5 Extreme, you can easily set the volts for this card. Because I had never benched it, I set +200mV (around 1.35V load), 1000 core and 1250 memory (1300 mem crashed). Here are the scores I was able to get in before I ran out (8 lbs is not a lot).86837 3D03 with 4770K at 5.5GHz46660 3D05 with 4770K at 5.4GHz
)30621 3D06 with 4770K at 5.4GHz for all except GT3/GT4, where it was 5.5GHz
(tried running GT1 and GT2 at 5.5 and lowering to 5.4 for CPU tests but it kept crashing, so I just raised it after)
All in all, it was a decent session... 8 lbs only lasted about three hours with half of it benching only CPU. It was pretty relaxed and I wasn't concerned much with getting crazy results, I just wanted to mess around.
