so i have 3 sets of benchmarks

1st with an MSI oc edition 5850 - clocks at 765 and 1125

2nd is with MSI oc edition 5850 and Asus 5850 - clocks are at 725 and 1000 ( i think, totally didnt check it, but the asus card runs at 725/100, so i figure the MSI card downclocks a bit, which, isnt to much so i doubt there is any difference maybe a frame or two at most if they were both clocked at the MSI card)

3rd picture is with both cards running at 950/1150

overall, im not happy at all with just the first card on the benchmark, its disappointing, im okay, with the both the cards together.

but what does make me happy is when they're overclocked to 950/1150.

i ran the test all stock except the resolution. (1920x1080)
so its:
API - DX11
Shaders: high
Tessellation: Enabled
Anisotropy: 4
Anti-Aliasing: off

hope ya'll can get some use out of this!

The single one might be a bit faster if it wasn't running in Windowed mode, but ... yeah. Two of these things overclocked are very impressive performers.

I'll post mine in a few minutes here.

Edit: Heres mines at your same bench settings (my clocks: 925/1225)

yeah i ran it in non windowed bc it was still in the case w/ the other one, i didnt actually take it out, i only knew it would run a single card in non windowed mode so i decided to do that.

may try and overclock a little bit more but not too sure yet. i cant take my memory any higher when i tried when i only had my single MSI it wouldnt go above 1150 or 1160. but wouldnt gain to much from 1150-1200 memory.

I wish it were *that* good


Actually, for him that is a 28% performance increase arising from a +31% core and +11.5% memory.

Still excellent OC scaling.

You mean windowed mode I think. You should've just turned off crossfire to test how one card runs, not used windowed mode. It's not the same perf as you'd actually see with one card.

After realizing Catalyst Control Center was causing issues with MSI afterburner, I was finally able to OC my ASUS 5850 (flashed with the 5870 bios). I disabled CCC and run Afterburner and found I could OC much higher! Here is my run at 900/1225 with the default UNGINE settings:



I was running crossfire, but couldn't justify the cost right now since I just picked up a 3rd 26" monitor and an active displayport adapter. So I've just sold my second 5850.

Here's one of mine via turning off crossfire, at 765/1125 like you ran your single card. The difference isn't a lot of frames, but it's about +15% vs. your run in windowed mode.

howd you disable ccc? i may try that and run some more benches. thats a great score w/ a single card id say compared to brett's and mine.

Yeah I thought I just had a poor OCing card, and resorted to OCing to 825/1025. Then I was reading and saw some people mentioning CCC was causing issues. To disable it, just go to the icon at the bottom right in the system tray, then right click the CCC icon and select "Exit". It will close CCC. Then open Afterburner and see if you can go higher!
