There is a new Unigine Benchmark: Valley 1.0
http://unigine.com/products/valley/

Looks to be more on the side of nvidia currently. Run it on the ExtremeHD preset and post your best score...

Here is the format for a valid post.

[Username] - [CPU @ Speed in GHz] - [Type of GPU(s) @ Core Speed / Memory Speed] - [Average FPS] - [Score]
[Screenshot of in Bench with Settings]

EXAMPLE:

stickg1 - 3570K @ 4.8GHz - 7970 @ 1265/1800 - 49.4 - 2067

edit: OOT, It seems O.C. memory too high had negative effect on minimum fps and overall score with my card..(even it stable and cold)
can anyone confirm it?

I think it's very interesting we have had 3 different benchmarks with 570s/580s with a single, slix2, and slix3 580s. The scaling is dead on, well done for unigine

make sure you are running the settings everyone else has to better compare systems.
choose Extreme HD. if you dont have 1920x1080, just choose extreme and max whatever resolution you have on your monitor
also you want at 8xaa

Running i3-2120 with 7850 at 1150/1400


edit: surprised my i3-2120 + 7850 was relatively close(3ish fps) to rdc85's 955BE + 7870

Hey nitrium! Thanks for following the submission format! Something is wrong though your card should get 35-40FPS in this benchmark. Reset any forced settings in catalyst control center and give the PC a reboot and try to minimalize any background processes.

there must be something wrong with nitrums card or driver, theres no way a 7950 is getting much lower score than my 7850

I'm getting about half of kingnoobe crossfire 6970 score. Isn't that about right? It seems pretty consistent, and I ran it a bunch of times. Closed most background apps/virus scanners etc I'm pretty sure.

No, your 7950 should get you much more than that. Your 7950 is 50% faster than a single 6970, and thats being generous to the 6970. Your score should be in the 35-42 region. What drivers are you running? Do you have any profiles set for certain games? Some people set max AA in games through CCC and it messes with benchmarks like this. If this isn't the case I highly recommend a driver cycle. Uninstall, reboot, clean registry with CCleaner, install newest BETA drivers, reboot.

Can you run some other benchmarks for us so we can see if its a problem with this specific bench or a problem with drivers/card?

3Dmark11, Unigine Heaven 3.0, etc..

Ok, I did have some "override application settings" set in Catalyst Control Centre. I have set everything back to default settings. Score did go up (by about 10%), but presumably this is still not enough?

I'm running latest AMD beta drivers BTW.

February 18, 2013 12:04:37 AM

No, a single 570 does better than that, and its about 40% slower

It strange your score are lower thant mine....

could u try diffrent O.C setting....

When I tried Heaven 4.0 with mem at 1300 it give me score about ~730
when i push the mem to 1400 (stable) the score drop to ~700
it could be the same thing happen....

score wise, its performing probably at the level of like a 7770 or a 650ti. somethings very off about his score. are you running 13.1 wqhl or 13.2 beta
a b U Graphics card
February 18, 2013 12:22:25 AM

I don't think its a CPU bottleneck, especially because we're dealing with benchmarks that are mostly single-threaded and only use (in my case) about 25% of the CPU.

Something is at play here. Nitrium, can you run GPU-Z and click on the PCIe button and verify that you are running at least PCIe x8/x16?

Your score is about 60% of what it should be.

Earlier today I would run the bench and only get about 37FPS and it was having the iGPU in Multi-Monitor mode in BIOS that was holding me back but Lynnfield doesn't have an iGPU so that can't be the case unless your mobo has integrated graphics. What is the make and model of your mobo?
a b U Graphics card
February 18, 2013 12:32:40 AM

I just ran 3DMark (the new one). This also shows the mobo/RAM etc. The CPU processor clock is obviously wrong - it's 3.4 GHz.

That seems ok to me from other scores I've seen.

it has very little to do with unigine... It is a gpu bench.

Yeah I had one of those. Click the button on the side of the GPU to turn the boost BIOS off (the blue LED should no longer be lit up, you will have to reboot for it to take effect). I had trouble with the boost BIOS. Then manually clock it to the BOOST values. Should be 950/1375 @ 1.175v, power slider +20%. Then click that "?" mark on GPU-Z and it will run a little test to put the GPU under stress and it will tell you if it is working at x16.

the 285 isn't dx11.. im sure your card would perform better if it were compatible

I was wondering why the score was like half of mines. IRL i was like, there's no way a 285 would be THAT low. then after^^ post came, it all made sense.

Why I went sli, no more dumps on my system. This benchmark runs extremely well tbh as opposed to some on a good card. A new gpu, even mid ranged will run alot better. A little over 200 bux can get a good mid ranged card that can run this bench well, as well as all the latest dx11 titles.

I followed those instructions, except I set power slider to +10% - maxing it out seemed kinda wrong to me.

Better, but still should be more like 1900

The boost BIOS puts the power slider to 20% by default so there is no problem running it that way. Glad you're back on track!

that looks about right now, its around rc's 7870(which is overclocked) so I think its normalized by now.

Pfffft. I have had a Riva 128, a Riva TNT, a Riva TNT2, a Geforce, a Geforce 2, a Geforce 4200Ti, a 6600GT, a 8800GTS, and a GTX260. Can you say the same, so called "Green Team"? The HD7950 is the first ATI board I ever owned, and frankly I've never been happier with my purchase.
