I ran the Heaven bench mark and when comparing my results to that of others i have noticed that my results aren't very high. I'm not sure why, i figured the crossfire 5850's would have performed better on this benchmark, do you think there may be any problems with hardware. As far as temps go, there usually exceptional. any insight is appreciated.

What are you comparing your scores too, and how far off are you? When comparing, be sure to compare benchmark settings, resolution, and processor (if they have an i7 at 4+GHz, it'll beat you). Also be sure nothing is forced in CCC. Did the 5850's replace an older card?

EXT64: It's my experience that Heaven shows negligible CPU-dependent performance differences. I just made runs on my machine to prove it.

My system specs are in my profile, but here's what I specifically used and the settings for the comparison.
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition
Test 1: 4-cores @ 3.3GHz
Test 2: 3-cores @ stock 2.8GHz
XFX HD4890 @ stock 875/975 clocks for both tests.

As you can see, they're nearly identical. It's not a benchmark like 3D Mark where the CPU has a tremendous impact on the score. It truly is a GPU benchmark.

No, it is a new build completely, they didn't replace any previous card. And i wasn't comparing my scores to anyone in particular, just doing some searching and it seemed that my scores seemed a little low when being compared to cards like a gtx 275, which in one situation scored higher than my two 5850's with the same settings. I was just wondering if anyone thought my scores seemed low.

You have the latest 10.3 driver for your card correct? If not, get it and that might improve it a little bit (or sometimes a lot).

I don't have 5850 Crossfire but I do have a 5970 and under the same settings. I scored 59.5 average FPS. To be honest my card came pre-overclocked at 750/1050 core and memory which is slightly higher than 5850 stock.

I can overclock my card though. When I bump it up to 950mhz core and 1250mhz memory. I get 71.5 FPS. (Thats right, a 5970 can overclock. Another way to trample the GTX 480 some more which can't overclock)

I am using stock Heaven Benchmark settings like you did. Normal tesselation and 4x AF, 0 AA.

hi im not sure as i only have a 1680x1050. As i also have 3d vision i am limited to the 22" monitor at present until they make 3d ready monitors in a larger size.
Sorry i cant answer this question.

Just out of curiousity i wanted to see what sort of power the the gtx 480 was pulling and how it measured in the Unigine Heaven Bench mark at max settings.

1680x1050,
tesselation - extreme
AFx16
AAx8

The highest reading was 651 watts and the results are as follows:

FPS: 45.8
Scores: 1153
Min FPS: 25.5
Max FPS: 82.7

Not too bad for two. I wonder what Furmark/OCCT would draw though :ouch:

Graet thanks for link i didnt know there was anything bigger than the 2" (well that was the advice from my local computer suppklier).
Will now try to invest in 3 of thease monitors as soon as the mrs has got over the shock of the cost of 2 gtx 480's.

This is the first time i have used furmark so i hope i have done this right.
Also i ran the stability test with xtreme burning mode, full screen, 16xmsaa and my results were:

FPS: Min=17 AVG= 21 Max= 22
The fans are loud!!!!
I also noticed that my psu was pulling in 836 watts!!!!!!

I do have some screenshots for you but not sure how to add them, if someone could help me out there that would be great

Oh, don't worry about the benchmark (I never run it). I was more wondering about the power draw/heat in the Stress/Stability test. Which as expected, is huge (but then again it is much higher than anything you will regularly experience).

here is my Unigine heaven 2.1 score on 2x HD6870's the score coming in a few points unders 2x GTX480's.





these 2 graphics cards cost me the same price of 1 GTX480 and give out the same perfomance as 2x GTX480's
