Low Vantage marks for Sapphire HD5870? Tags: Radeon Vantage Intel i7 Graphics Last response: September 28, 2010 3:28 PM in Graphics & Displays Share matteroll September 28, 2010 11:42:38 AM Hey guys! So recently i decided to benchmark my GPU with 3DMark Vantage and the results i got were really bad. I got 9000 for my 5870. My specs are.. CPU: i7 950 D0 @ 4.0GHz GPU: Sapphire 5870 HDD: WD 1TB Caviar Black PSU: Crosair HX750 MB: MSI X58A-GD65 RAM: Crosair 6GB DDR3 1600 MHz I don't think there is any bottleneck in my system. Oh and i'm using 10.9 catalyst drivers. Is it a bad card? idk i read on another thread of someone with the same problems but that thread died.... Oh and another question...What are the power saving features that i can turn off for my i7 for OCing? first time im gonna OC an i7 More about : low vantage marks sapphire hd5870 wa1 September 28, 2010 11:54:05 AM Well, do some gaming to see what fps did you get, don't rely too much on benchmark... You can try the older drivers like 10.3, 10.4 or 10.8, see if that help increasing your Vantage result... m 0 l matteroll September 28, 2010 11:58:41 AM Just did the heaven benchmark by unibench...highest settings[including AA and AF] with normal tessellation got me an avg of 25fps m 0 l Related resources Low 3D Mark Vantage Score!
