I decided to start a topic to put in the 3DMark06 Scores of all ATI HD3850 Pro's in AGP interface. I mean, only in AGP. No matter if it's from Sapphire, Club3D or what...
...If you want to put your scores in this topic, it's very very handy you list also your systemspecifications. So if you got lower scores than someone else, perhaps it may be done due some other hardware in your system. Maybe something is boiling while using the VGA on heavy load.
When someone has a question, suggestion or a problem, feel free to help eachother. Handy tips or maybe some good advice are also welcome.
First of all, I'll list here my scores and systemspecifications:
I'm getting my AGP 8X Sapphire HD3850 later on today. I can't wait to see how it does on 3DMark06.
My ECS P4M800Pro M v. 2.0 doesn't OC as good as your board. I havn't been able to figure out the best RAM
to OC with. It can go up to 300 FSB but I can only get to about 285 and maintain it steady.
I have been running an AGP8x EVGA 7800 GS for a little over a year now and have managed to get some good usage out of it. It's in good condition so if anyone is intrested in buying it for say... $60 pm me and we'll do business.
With my set up I was able to score 4331 benchmarks on 3DMark06.
Over the weekend I upgraded PSU to Corsair TX650. It should be plenty of power for the AGP 8x HD3850.
What kind of PSU do you run???
I'll post a 3dMark06 benchmark soon. If I get over 10,000 I'll be very pleased with the upgrade.
As promised by Newegg my new ATI Sapphire HD3850 AGP8x arrived today!!!
I cleaned up my old NVIDIA GPU drivers data from my machine and did a fresh install with the new HD 3850. The entire instalation was done from the CD that came with the card.
After instalation the first thing I did was run a 3dMark06 test and I am very pleased with the initial test. Considering I havn't installed any "hot fix" files or other patches and ran the test at the stock core speeds my new AGP8x HD3850 scored 9146 benchmarks!!!
Ran into a really good deal on an E8400 and ECS GF7050VT-M combo at Fry's and I decided to go PCI-Express with a HD4850. Got a great deal on it from Newegg. Not much more money than the AGP8X Sapphire HD3850.
