i ordered my second 5770 video card and waiting for it to come in the mail just very curious on how it will score on 3dmark06 with a q6600.

my specs
intel core 2 quad q6600 at 3.4ghz
4GB ddr2 800mhz ram
680watt psu
antec 900 case
sapphire 5770 vapor x (scored a low 16,000 on 3d mark06)

just very curious on what score to expect with 2x 5770's

Check out posts I've made. I created a whole thread on 5770 Crossfire performance vs a Single 5870. Final score after overclocking in 3DM 20k.

20k in 3dmark06?

Isn't that like low for HD 5770 crossfired because I scored a 19k with HD 4850 in crossfire. Albeit it was overclocked to 700 mhz/1190 mhz memory.

Processor: Amd Phenom II x2 550 unlocked to B50 x4 @3.6 ghz.

Ah thats why, I use DDR2 800, don't feel the need to go any faster. I could easily get 24k if I super oc'ed everything.

I score only 12350 with Q6600@2.4GHz, ATI 5770(900/1340) and 4gb memory. I get 11.5k with stock speeds. Why is it so low? With my old 8800 GTS 512 I used to get 11-12k.

The reasons your score dropped some is the lack of PhysX. 3D Mark was tailored to Nvidia cards, thus they normally almost always perform better due to PhysX. Your scores are right where they should be in my opinion with a single 5770, your Vantage score should be somewhere around 9000 as well.

ok got my second 5770 in today and crossfired them and ran 3dmark06 and my score was only 18885? is that right?

then ran the benchmark in 1920x1080 and got a score of 18383

an i dont something wrong or is my processor holding me back( dont see why it would that much i was hoping for atleast a 22,000)

asus p5q pro turbo motherboard
q6600 @3.44ghz
4gb of geil black dragon ram
2x 500gigs harddrives in raid 0
680watt psu
2x 5770's in crossfire


i ran a 17,000 with a single geforce gtx 260

Overclock both 5770s to 900 MHZ 1300 MHZ. Your score will go to 20k+ very easily. Any GPU that scores higher than that is an Nvidia GPU with Phsyx which is what vantage/3dmark are catered to thus their considered "fastest" by Futuremark's terms.

Gratz on the upgrade!

Benchmarks and 3DMark are screwing you and your lives over, just get over the fact of the synthetic benchmarks and be satisfied about what you have without peaking at the cheats (if you know what I mean.. im relating the two) You see, benchmarks are like cheats.. if you like what you are getting with the cheats, you can't get enough.. and thats what is pulling the money out your pockets (the greed of getting the best or getting better). Get whats good because the best don't stay best for long, and the good does. Keep the addictions coming baby.

yes, 14592 is around the score you should get in Vantage with 2x 5770s. 1x 5770 will core 8-9k add about 50% performance should be 14-15k with the second card. You shouldn't worry too much about your 3DM scores though. Go play some actual games and you'll notice the difference :) 


Edit: Make sure when you oc'ed your cards you increased the fan speed to 50%+ otherwise heat issues could be a problem.

My GPU score in Vantage is around 9600-9700 OC so I guess there is nothing wrong with my card then :) 

I have another question. While watching movies the card usually bugs like that: http://img202.imageshack.us/i/photo0152w.jpg/
(sorry for the bad quality)

The only way to fix this is to restart the PC but I can't even restart it normally because I get BSOD when I press the restart button, start a game or restart the player. Before 10.2 I had the infamous gray screen with stripes but 10.2 fixed all my problems except this one. Is this caused by my 350W PSU? I can play games or stress the PC with Furmark/Heaven and it doesn't crash. I had a 8800 GTS 512 which requires more power than the 5770 but I had no problem with it.

You really should have at least a 450W PSU for the 5770. Be careful or you might fry some components by undervolting them. (especially while gaming). I recommend upgrading your PSU then see if you still have the issues.

I am reading all of these posted 3dMark06 scores for the HD 5770/CF 5770 setups. I had 8 of these cards at one time. 4 Referance/4 Non-Ref Sapphire HD 5770's and I did alot of testing and benchmarking!

I have 2 different systems:

1st - AMD 965/MSI 790FX-GD70/4GB DDR3 1600MHz Dominator

2nd - i7 930/MSI X58 PRO-E/6GB DDR3 1600MHz Triple Channel Dominator

Now if my 965 setup was at stock (3.4GHz) a single HD 5770 no matter which card(ref or non) would score just over 17K on every 06 benchmark I ran, even within 200 or so points, which IMO is rediculously consistant for 06 benching! Crossfire 2 HD 5770's (ref or not) and I would be looking at right around 19,200, again no matter what card I used in either PCIe slot, every score was within 200-300 points! The highest score I ever got on 06 with both my cpu OC and gpu OC to the max was 22,468

Then I got the i7 930 setup, and I really don't recall what my scores were running the cpu and 2 gpu's @ stock, but I can tell you with the cpu OCed to 4.169GHz and the 2 gpu's running at 935 core/1230 mem I hit 26,410 on 06, which to date is my highest score.

The bottom line - 2 HD 5770's Crossfired is a BA setup! These cards scale EXTREMELY well in Crossfire mode and with the 128mb interfaces, thats basically exactly what they were meant for!!! 128x2=256!
