3DMark 11/Vantage Scores thread! (Benchmark Thread #3)

With the Unigene and Cinebench threads, I figured we might as well round it out with the 3DMark thread. You can do either Vantage or 11, or both, doesn't really matter. Just download and run at default Performance settings. Screenshots are great as we can see the results right here, but certainly feel free to post the online link as well (example: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/526616).

1) Download 3DMark Vantage (basic edition) : http://www.3dmark.com/3dmarkvantage/
2) Download 3DMark 11 (basic edition) : http://www.3dmark.com/3dmark11/

3) Run tests

4) Save results (print screen -> paste into Paint ->Crop/save)
5) Upload results to photobucket or imgur or imageshack
6) Post results!

Feel free to run stock, daily overclock, and max overclock results! Or just one of them... doesn't matter! I think we'll have some great results spanning 3 or more generations of great cards so it could be really interesting.

  1. Too many tests to do all 3. I'll start with my near max scores, as I already had HT turned on and my CPU near max OC'ed, and it's a pain to go back and forth.
  2. Here are my OC scores. Interestingly, I found that Vantage did not use my GPU accelerated PhysX. I planned to run it both ways, but as it turned out, it never used it. Does anyone know if this is a planned change, or perhaps a bug?

  3. Man that 680 is a beast!
  4. PhysX is disabled by default, otherwise the score would be way out there. I've turned it on in Vantage with my lowly GT240 and had a crushingly high score lol.

    Just used CCC, put power to 20% and oc'd. Can't go any higher till sapphire updates trixx so I can change voltage tho.
  8. will run 3dmark11 OCd and post back

    I will run my GPU's clocked and non-clocked, that's easy with MSi Afterburner.


    Yeah of course. There's not a big reason to remove your OC if it's how you run it daily.

    I find these results interesting. I'd love to see the break down of the graphics vs physic scores. Your 6950's are showing a higher vantage score, but a lower 3dmark11.

    My highest stable OC is 1150, and that's with power to 40% lol. :(

    Powercolor HD 5770 1gb stock 850/1200 OCd 900/1300

    Wow is 3DMark 11 a great way to catch "Upgrade Fever" LOL
    well at least it looked pretty (real fast slideshow) and is a great way to test CPU/GPU overclock stability

    Realy fast slide show or slow gameplay :lol:

    I tested vantage, but i got only 10k score and others are having score in 30k:o
    My system is getting unstable at overclocks that i used in c11.5, even they are stable in prime95 but not in vantage:o

    I will try to get more score and then i will post.
    So as to avoid this case ''<walks away in shame quietly mumbling to himself>'':D
    I think that we are in same slow boat.

    I think mal is also in this boat with us. :lol:

    may the CUDA be with you....

    yeah
    i need that, since overclock left me alone. :(

    Oh, wait there is no cuda in ati.
    You are making me jealous with your 460.
    :p But, hey hey, 6cores :kaola:
  15. if Mal runs it on the 2500k/sli GTX 560Ti rig I dont think he will be ashamed
    you see if one gun runs out of bullets that is the reason you have a second gun
    Mrs Mental's tower (I3-2120.550Ti) would put up better numbers than mine :)
    and that is just a streaming video machine according to Mal LOL

  19. My 3D mark 11 and Vantage results



  20. ok i am getting in
    http://3dmark.com/3dmv/4010803
    i managed to get 12k points :D
  21. hey mal, i want to see some scores from you.
  22. Are you sure what thread you are on? LOL
  23. okay just checking
    I am going to do a 3Dmark Vantage test
    I am glad I saved all of my benching programs in DL folder
    I think I have a chance against Yuka possibly
    all in the name of friendly competition of course
  24. http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/5734/screenshot22h50m53s.jpg

    specs: see configuration

    Well I gave it my best shot
    I believe Yuka beat me fair and square
  25. Your 5770 had bigger FPS count, king; the 4890 was barely keeping up at around 25FPS IIRC.

    Besides, this baby can't do DX11 8(

    Cheers!
  26. most of the good games still have DX9 support
    Witcher 2 looks great with DX9
    Metro and Crysis 2 have DX9 and DX 10 support
    and the HD 5770 is a very borderline DX11 card
    on higher settings it is just barely playable
    it is good that I am not a very demanding gamer
    Maybe because of my poor vision but I am okay with framerates in the 20s and 30s
    and I am more interested in GPGPU acceleraton and UVD than FPS
    I am looking to get into folding@home heavily (as soon as I have a cable modem again)
    but my HD 5770 should hopefully hold me out unto the next generation of cards
    Possibly a HD 8770 or GTX 750Ti?
    BTW I wonder what happens when AMD gets to HD 9xxx if they are going to redo naming scheme
  27. The last time they hit 9xxx, the followed it up with a X800 (I assume the X is for roman numeral 10). I say they do like Nvidia and drop a digit. They don't really make use of the last digit anyways.
  28. a HD 977?
    could get confusing because Nvidia is heading towards 9xx
    Maybe they will start giving them names
    they already have names for the cards
    for example a HD 5770 would be a Juniper XT?
    just go with name and then letters like GT,XT,Pro etc
    I use to like the way they did the X series with the letters after it
  29. No, I mean after they hit 9970 and perhaps X970, they can start over with 177

    :o your score is 11k, gpu score 10k, cpu score 12k.
    My score 12k, gpu 10k, cpu 19k :o
    so we have a 7k difference in cpu, but only 1k in overall. Looks like they are using 1point from cpu and 4point from gpu:D

    you mean. :P
    Instead of going with 10770, 10990 etc. They can choose x to replace 10 and thus names will be x770, x990 :D

    Ya, they did that once before and where did my "t" go at the end of that mean.
  33. so you mean that invisible 't' in your second last post :P
    yeah, i have it, but only in my invisible posts :D

    what can we do now o this :pt1cable:


    but i am happy because of these :sol:



    lets wait for mal ( :kaola: non i5 :sol: )
    here we are, the middle seat is for you mal :lol:
    http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee458/realygenius/th_blog3.jpg
  35. now i managed to hit 1ghz on my gpu and 3.8ghz on my cpu in vantage and then i tested my system at those clocks.

    today is friday the 13th.
    and so is my score.
    http://3dmark.com/3dmv/4020856
    :D this time i managed to hit i managed to hit 13k.
    my cpu score is less than my previous submitted score but my graphics score is a little higher and that means vantage is concentrated on gpu performance
  36. ^invitation to super-nova explosion :lol:
    but where is your score mal(vantage). :p
    (a seat is reserved for ya ;))
  37. Mal you are kind of like the old man that has a 69 Boss Mustang sitting in his garage that only drives it on Sundays LOL

  39. Did you return your XFX then?
  40. BigMack70 said:
    Yup I sold the XFX for $430, which I thought was a fair enough price both ways given the recent price drop.

    I'm kind of frustrated that newegg (along with everywhere else) hasn't gotten them back in stock yet... they've been teasing with price drops the last couple days but still no stock.

    I'm also amazed at how badly the 7970 gets smacked in 3dmark11 by the 680... looks like you need a 1300 MHz overclock on a 7970 to crack the 10k P score (assuming you don't have a crazy CPU like a 3960x). And from what I can tell, 1300 MHz is incredibly rare. Even my lightning can't make it through a 3dmark run at that clock... it might be able to make it at 1275 MHz but there's artifacting everywhere so I just left it at 1250.


    Well, don't forget that the 7970 smacks the 680 around in 3dmark Vantage, so it does depend on how it's used.

    Thanks for coming out to play your rig got some very respectable numbers, now I can see for myself what
    the FX cpu can do. Again thanks.
  42. @earl45
    wow
    you got a sabertooth board
    how is it?
    How much you can clock your cpu at that board (stable and unstable)?
  43. you mean this one

    Honestly I love it !
    I'm running 24/7 @4.7 and was able to achieve 5.2 no problems.

    The biggest issue I had with all the reviews is the lopsided setups. AMD supported faster memory for a reason. granted it may cost slightly more (paid $40 instead of $25), but its permanently faster memory, even if you upgrade the cpu again, you still have the faster memory.

    A well balanced system is only as slow as the slowest component. Eventually I will get an SSD, but thats really only load times.

    Edit : lol, just did a search for similar setups, mine is the highest score. How many people around use 4x 160gb drives in a raid 0? I didn't even oc the gpus, but they are PC+ stock at 940 mhz.
