^Yup. Since I'm happy with the games I can play on my setup despite some limitations, I obviously don't make too big of a deal out of artificial benchmarks.


Nice score BTW!

^^^^ Looks like you're set for the next few years with all the bells and whistles!


Minor update for me with the latest 10.12 drivers: P3734 . 19 extra points = at least 30 extra frames I'm sure.

4662 for me. SLI doesn't seem to be working on this as I have 2 470s. Power consumption at full load for me is usually 575W, but this didn't break 450W. Tinker, what are you running with, and does SLI/XFire show in the results as ON?

Being totally bored tonight I just tested with only two 5870 and added a Nvidia 9800GT as a physics and got a higher score then using three 5870s. Got P7834.

I been having some issues with tri 5870s with flashing black screens in BF:BC2 and other weird artifacts that occasionally crops up. It seems that 3DM11 only really support two cards for video.

nice, seems the 460 and 6850 are getting pretty equal results...but again this "scores" are all about CPU's, even if we get 100FPS+ in some games on shear processing power.

For sure, the HD6850 and GTX460 are the same class of card. In fact while the 460 might have a slight overall performance advantage the HD6850 is more power efficient so on a performance per watt analysis the 6850 is actually a clear winner.


And yes, cpu appears to be very important. I'm in the middle of putting together another rig for my bedroom that will be made up of a e8400 (@4Ghz all going well) and a HD 6850. It will be interesting to see what it scores.

Just thought I'd update this.


So I ran a compare between my Q9400/GTX460 rig and my e8400/HD6850 rig.


The Q9400 is clocked at 3.7Ghz and the card at 850/1000Mhz

The E8400 is clocked at 4.2Ghz and the card at 900/1050Mhz


Both systems are running a 470(1880Mhz) FSB with memory at 1:1


These overclocks are stable and what I've tuned both systems to run at on a daily basis.


The results are a little suprising:

Q9400 = P3698

E8400 = P3675

http://3dmark.com/compare/3dm11/375018/3dm11/369186


The only reason the Q9400 wins is it has better physics results, but the frame-rates mostly go slightly in favour of the HD6850


So I have to say, on the balance of power;performance and cost, the HD6850 is a clear winner.


As an aside, both my rigs have xfire capability and I recently found out they can run sli with this patch http://xdevs.com/e107_plugins/conten...php?content.30

So I can see myself taking this battle to a SLI/Xfire setup at some point


ps. 3dmark seems to have trouble acquiring the cpu details on my e8400. I wonder if it is because it is clocked so high?

With the catalyst upgrade from 10.12 to 11.1 my score went up from 3640 to 3852, still no 7000+ due to my CPU's 4 logical cores but it's decent enough at least for me
