When I run it I get about ~64 Gflops at 4.5ghz.

We need some new testing done with regards to the SB chips vs the 980x in apps that can take advantage of SB's new instructions.


Also 50C max load, on some chill water is crazy, what are the people on air getting?

I dont see how your results are even remotely possible, IBT results are heavily influenced by number of cores, as well as ram performance. A 980x on this Thread at 4.5ghz was only able to achieve 97 gflops. The fact that you are able to surpass a hexacore, with and without HT is beyond me.

No offense my friend, but I find your results highly suspect....

No problem man.

It's called core advancement.

Look up AVX and you'll understand, SP1 allows usage of that instruction set, which basically doubled SB FP.

gigaflops mean nothing.

but then again that is a lot of them.

I like overclocking more than actually playing video games.

I'm on SP1, but I'm not getting those GFlops lol Is there something specific to enable AVX?

No.. Just the correct linpacks, download LinX - it has them, copy them into your IBT directory if you would rather use IBT.

They're both the same, just a different interface.

As I just posted in the 5+ghz thread, this is far from exciting or what I'd consider 'tech advancement'...

Show me a real-world example. A stress testing program with a big number is useless.
