|Getting artifacts usually drops performance so that is why it is a good idea to do . You be missing out on a better bench score|
No..I dont think so. Fuzzy texture tests have NEVER improved my bench score..ROFL! There is more than one way to skin a cat you know..
I did not say I dont test my GPU.. I said I dont test it with 'fuzzy textures'.
I run back-to-back 3d Mark tests, fold and game... once the GPU has passed that..I increase voltage and clock more. I am not OC'ing with stock voltage here.. I am currently working on besting my 2nd place record for HWBot. [me thinks i can handle stability testing
Running the 8800GS's at 1.3v at the following:
*Current best on 3D 06 is 14.4k..single GS.
**Had to edit the sliders in RivaTuner.. because the program did not allow me to clock the core past 815mhz, nor the shaders over the 1998mhz strap.
My goal is to hit 900mhz on the core and over 2100mhz on the shaders..should net me a first place HWbot np..
