Hey all,
Just got my Zotac GTX 580 1.5GB last week and it seems to be performing a little worse than I expected it to. I did all the graphic card and video tests with SiSoftware Sandra but I have no idea how to compare this data with aggregated results through the program. Searching online I couldn't find anywhere giving the benchmark results (type of benchmarks) Sandra was doing.

For example, GP processing test:

Quote:
OpenCL GP Processor
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 (512SP 16C 1.54GHz, 1.5GB 4GHz)
Benchmark Results
Aggregate Shader Performance 682.75MPix/s
Native Float Shaders 1.67GPix/s
Native Double Shaders 278.7MPix/s

Interface OpenCL

Benchmark Results
Aggregate Shader Performance 265.49GFLOPS
Native Float Shaders 650.36GFLOPS
Native Double Shaders 108.38GFLOPS


It did this with "CUDA/GP" and "Computer Shader" and then did the below Cryptography test for all of them too:

I was wondering someone could link me to these kinds of in-depth benchmark results for my card? In the spoiler tag below I have included a whole bunch more of the tests I did. Maybe if someone is familiar with the card and has time to skim through it that would work too. Another thing: During the cryptography test I got this error: "CUDA GP Processor: GP call failed. Try another interface (e.g. OpenCL/ComputeShader/CUDA/etc.) or update video drivers." Happens or something I should worry about? Thanks!

I did search. They provide FPS and such. I cannot seem to find anyone offering these kinds of explanations.
