Artik, did you get some benches with that X800?
As for me, I've recovered from the Team Cup hangover
and am gingerly easing my way back into AGP benching.
So back in the winter when it looks like I'd never score a 4CoreDual, I picked up an ASRock 775i65G as a possible alternative and posted this score
I've since lucked into a 4CoreDual-SATA2 and am trying to beat it with DDR2 and a (slightly) faster overclock. Which is where it gets mildly interesting. I can't. Beat it, I mean.
The original score was with OCZ Platinum DDR-440 2-2-2-5 and even with the ostensibly higher bandwidth of the DDR2 (also low latency ram at 585 MHz, 3-4-4-12), I can't get within 400 points of it. I just found it striking how big a difference latency makes. All of the other hardware was identical. I probably shouldn't be so amazed by this (N00B!!) but I still think it's pretty cool.
So in the meantime I'm still mired out of the top 5 for the 4670 and haven't even benched the 3850 for realz yet. About all I've managed lately in AGP benching is killing my 9700! But I'm working on a pencil mod for the 4670 and already made hard mods to the 3850 (thanks Artik!!
) but need a better cooler if I don't want to kill it. Rage 128 Ultra, GeForce2 MX, and GeForce4 MX 440 are waiting in the wings...
Ye gods, drivers are a pain. Have been working on getting the Radeon 7500 and GeForce2 MX working with the 4CoreDual and as usual, everything takes longer than you think it will...
