Nvidia SLI benchmarks from World Cyber Games

An article at Gamespot about an Nvidia demonstration at the world cyber games.

QUOTE- "The Opteron 250 GeForce 6800 GT SLI system scored an impressive 8,081 points in the recently released 3DMark05 benchmark. In comparison, a single GeForce 6800 GT scored 4,452 points on a slower 2.8GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor in a recent GameSpot 3DMark05 test."

I forgot to mention, Nvidia are saying the scores will get significantly higher when they optimise the drivers.

  2. thats some compeitition going in there. more than 60 countries participating. more than $100000 being given away. wheres the THG team :frown: ?

  3. I can only imagine what kind of score 2 overclocked ultra would yield.... 12000 anyone?

    Hold that.....that was on a amd system....YAY pci-x , sli and blah blah blah coming soon!

  4. Geoff,

    It is odd they compared the scores from an Opteron 250 to a P4 2.8. Why not take one card out of the SLI and compare? Apples-to-Oranges on nVidias part.

    As for nVidia saying, "the scores will get significantly higher" the problem is 4,452 x 2 = 8,904. That is less than 900 points higher in 3DMark05. 900 points is nothing to laugh at, but I would not call 10% significantly higher, although it is hard to compare when you are looking at two very different systems.

    Anyhow, if they can get close to 8k with 2 cards compared to 1 card,m on the same system, in the 4.5k range I will be impressed. I still like the idea of high performing cards with new features (WGF, turbo cache/hyper memory, DX10, and so on), almost doubling scores is NICE.

    Seriously i have read your post 3 time and still cant find any sense in it.

  6. ROFL you read my mind

    Watch out for the <b><font color=red>bloody</font color=red></b> Fanboys!

    AMD64 2800+ :: MSI Neo-Fis2r :: 1024mb Kingmax ddr400 :: Sapphire 9800pro 128mb :: 10K WD Raptor

    Addicted, finally.
  7. imagine the power they will consume ? Considering Nvidia single cards require much more power than ATI, 2 cards in SLI thats to OCed (maybe even BFG oced) will raise the electricity bill.
    I really want to see macci dudes, using opterons...
    BTW its pcie and not pci-x, u totally killed the standard.

  8. Ironically I got most of it, but also felt lost a few times in his post.

    The way I see it:

    The comparison wasn't too fair anyways. An Opteron 2.4GHZ is far more powerful than a P4 2.8GHZ. It's an equivalent to a 3800+ almost. That's about 30% more performance. While 3DMark05 does not require a lot of CPU power, it still will affect scores.
    So the score isn't the most impressive IMO. But still, on average, that's at least a 75% increase in performance. If this applied to all games or average over 50% performance, we may be onto something potentially good here. But it definitely needs to be consistent and fine tuned.

  9. For me, I want to see at least a 70% leap over one card in a game like DOOM3. If it’s less than that, I will counsel myself as to whether its worth the extra expense of two cards and whatever other supporting hardware. I guess 50% is still a sizable increase, but I don’t think I can get past the double cost for a 50% performance increase.

    If I can get over 85% I will be very happy.

    Geoff.
  10. heya Geoff;

    NVidia has claimed that SLI can yield up to an 80% increase, we shall see, we can HOPE anyway.
