    So if CFX worked on this benchmark, I would have a score of around 15000 with a 4GHz CPU OC and stock speed GPU's, But...it doesn't...:(

    You need to force it in drivers same as nvidia cards.

    Yup.. no idea what it looks like in the catalyst drivers, but in NVidia I had to use Alternate Frame rendering 2.

    I gave it another stab with some higher overclocks.

    Just a note, my ram is 1600mhz

    Hopefully my second 670 should be back from EVGA RMA in the new year

    I might as well throw my 550ti's to the wolves. This was run with AFR2 forced, so it's in Full SLI so far as I'm aware.

    Should be better on my up dated rig, ive a feeling this uses physX instead of OpenCL and is coded for Nvidia gpus...





    Or im just sulking/nerd-raging....either really

    Sorry guys for the complete lack of updating the scores over Christmas. I've barely had any time to touch my PC with family gatherings etc and still haven't even downloaded the benchmark myself, let alone had a chance to run it.

    Just need a couple of details from people please:
    damien c - CPU clock sand Motherboard
    HandMadeAndroid - Water or Air cooling?
    WTF_Shelley - Water or Air cooling?

    This benchmark does seem to heavily favour nvidia so i don't think we'll see it replacing Heavan any time soon. It's a fair bit more interesting and much shorter though. Could do without the crudstep....:rolleyes:

    CPU was ran at 5.2ghz for this benchmark.

    Motherboard is a Asus P8Z77-V Pro.

    I am going to do some testing over the weekend though as, I am going to run things abit faster if I can.

    Of the testing i did the highest gains where boosting the memory at least single card. Once sli is enabled the benchmark seemed to benifit from both core and memory.

    I also messed around with cpu clock from 3.2ghz stock on the i7920 to 4.5ghz that i pushed it to gained very little score and sometimes lost score. not entirely sure the benchmark is cpu capped in any shape or form.

    To me it seems to give better scores because of CPU Core Count rather than CPU Core Speed, and GPU Ram count rather than speed but I am going to play around with overclocking my GPU's this weekend, or tonight and see if I can boost my scores abit.

    Well I have been playing around and got the max score I can get at the moment as I am not willing to push my card's any further whilst they are on air.

    [​IMG]


    That was using the following

    +50 On Voltage
    +32 On Power
    +150 On Core
    +350 On Vram

    The speeds according to MSI Afterburner were

    Core 1156mhz/1257mhz
    Vram 3355mhz


    Spec's on pc are in signature, but my motherboard is a Asus P8Z77 - V Pro and my cpu overclock is 4.8ghz.
