Isn't it the cpu tests I should be worried about, not the graphics tests? or is 06 single threaded?

The CPU test is multithread, but single thread speed will determine a lot of your SM2 score. If the GPUs are powerful enough (and you are using three), then an increase in them will do nothing to the score. E.g. with a 7970, adding 100 MHz to the GPU did nothing for me because my CPU (3930K @ 5G) was too slow. Though to be fair, my setup was more powerful. If I had to put money, I'd go with the higher single thread speed on four cores rather than 8 threads.

If it helps, if you know scores you should roughly get, use my calculator to see what the difference would be. smile.gif See what comparable scores on the bot are with different CPUs

I don't think there is any G92 A3. From original 8800GT 512MB to GTS250,i've only ever seen A2


8800GTX is very unlikely to win

smile.gif



......and (no) HT is not going to break your score. I'd go for MHz. For 3-way, the CPU score will suck regardless



I think 03 is going to be a 2-part leaderboard. split by CPU: 5.7GHz+ yes or no?

something tells me you have winning scores with the wrong backround on a thumbstick already

I have some scores that I don't expect to survive this competition...... smile.gif

My SLI stuff is pretty relaxed, just whenever binning gives me multiple good cards at the same time (not often!)

Most of my cards are waiting for Ivy

I have a feeling this competition is going to be "Team Kenny" vs. the rest of HWBot

reggie......8800 Ultra at 1Ghz will smack G92 any day of the week!

that 384-bit memory bus and same core/shader clocks are gonna kill


I would put untouchable on ultra but I just cant bring myself to do it......

I like overclocking more than actually playing video games.
i7 930 5.3GHz!!!!!---->proof.gifQ6600 4.7GHz!!!!!---->proof.gif
E8500 5.8GHz!!!!!---->proof.gif
Core i5 660 ES 5.9GHz!!!!!---->proof.gif

It's not though wink.gif

My 8800 Ultra at 1GHz/ 1242 is still 1.4K behind a GTS512MB at 1206/1281. Sure, if I was using clocked Sandy, it would pull things back in line, but it wouldn't *spank* G92. Not unless I was pushing maybe 1050MHz.


I wish ePenis didn't exist. Another 2 layers of expense, another layer of risk.
