Nice, it beats my OC'd 4g 680 pretty easily:
Decided to see how this test does with the 13.8 BETA drivers and a wee bit of OC'ing....
My latest score with the 13.11v3BETA drivers....
First time I have run any BM for a very long time. I still think they are pointless (Apart from reviews) as to me the are just numbers and don't really show how smooth a pc runs..
But here is my results:
My latest using the 14.2Beta2 drivers and the default setting for 3DMark...
Just getting started. Max temp with the Asus default game profile was just 73C's
Now with the cat 14.2 Beta's.
It appears that my HD 7970 is holding its own very well.
My latest results with my new build:
Here is Mine
CPU 4.072GHz 1.475v 246FSB 2800NB 2500HT XFX 7970 DD GHz 1180/1650 1260v
cloud gate over 24k all default no overclocking crossfire Pcie x8 card one Pcie x4 card 2
i'll have to test it on my maxiums vi hero at x8 x8 to see if it scores higher, down side im on a bloody mobile pay as you go broadband usb dongle lol hope I have it on disk some where :/
Decided to run it once again after all the latest patches/updates. These are with the latest AMD WHQL drivers, too....
I also had three monitors active at the same time..in Extended Desktop mode.
Here is my result.
NVIDIA 970 OC'd, i7-5820k 3.3 GHz (4.3 GHz OC'd), Crucial DDR4 2133 MHz (2400 MHz OC'd)
NOTE: I had 2 active full HD monitors connected via HDMI & DVI.
Was having problems with my system crashing in games, noticed high cpu temps even in idle. Opened my system and noticed my cpu heatsink was clogged up with dust, so cleaned it up and temps dropped to normal, max 58 in games, max 64 in cpu test. Bought 3Dmark in steam sale, because why the hell not and ran bunch of tests in 3Dmark, even got some achievements in 3Dmark, after running some different tests Hasn't crashed since.
I still get a decent score with my almost two year old system.
Though I'm not ready for 4K
Graphics driver not approved, as Futuremark hadn't approved WHQL 347.09 at the time of the test.
My Extreme test was interesting, as I just upgrade to a 1440p monitor. My system can run it with the games I'm playing, but properly not for long, but there should be plenty of new hardware in 2015, which could make a decent upgrade.
I think it's about time to start upgrading..
running Ultra on a 2GB card clearly shows the disadvantages of 2GB of ram even with the 285's memory compression in the works.... it's just not sufficient enough... specially when compared to that of the 280/280x... the 3GB on there allows the cards to continue to perform admirably as expected. Doing comparisons shows this clearly, and if you have 4GB vram... it improves even more.
It's rather disapointing that the R9 285 still and doesn't appear will ever have a 4GB model, because the gpu's are sound, perform very well and stay relatively cool and quiet compared to their brothers while still being the most advanced model of the r9 series in terms of features and functions.
Would have been great to crossfire them up... but with just 2GB hamstringing the damn card, it's rather disapointing, specially for 4K where it could EASILY excel if it had 4GB.
