Comes in under 4000 with dual 7870s . Now I know something must be up because I dont notice that much of a difference from my preivous 5770's performance.
My system is currently:
Amd 1090t stock clock of 3.2ghz
16gb of corsair memory
Asus M5A97 with updated bios as of 4/12
ATI beta drivers 12.7
Now Ive just got into getting a highish end rig. The catalyst controls are currently cross fire enabled. No overdrive is enable.
Everything is default including fresh installation of windows 7 64. Am I currently setup incorrectly or is this just the performance of these cards? I was lead to believe they are pretty good cads but my friend with one 660ti blows me out on skyrim
Any help would be appreciated. Keep it simple and Ill pick it up quickly
I think X3800 is about right for your rig. Your score would be slightly higher if your CPU were better. In a game like Skyrim, which is very dependent on CPU power, your CPU is holding you back. IMO it's not a great idea to be running two cards on that CPU - it's probably bottlenecking your 7870s.
I got both for the price for one. Im surprised that my cpu would be the bottle neck but I'm still unfamiliar on how to go about getting amazing performance. And thats crazy how even that 7970 set up didnt fly off the charts.
Thanks for the input every one. Ill have to tone things down a bit to maintain performance
