The Lords of Over Clocking

    Well, core clock isn't everything - I thought it was ridiculous when Intel was doing their stupid p4 netburst architecture to wrack up super high clock speeds even though the cpu was getting almost no work done per cycle because of that architecture - it was all for marketing. AMD was using a much more elegant design that got a lot of work done per cycle at the time.


    Granted the 295 is really a 275x2, so fastest single GPU (285) vs GPU (4890) isn't as big a difference and your point is valid, there is much more overclockability in the 4890. I don't know if that's going to stop hardware geeks from wanting to drop the extra cash for a 280/285, but I don't know the benchmarks on an OC 4890 vs OC 285.

    The lone 295(USA) is using ("BONE-A-FIED") That's right.....Drivers!!!!!.... that can be used by anyone (the end user)! Now look at how many ATI users have this:

    "Please note that this result has been produced using display drivers which have not been validated or approved by Futuremark and will not be visible on default result search on the ORB or on the Hall of Fame". On their "VANTAGE" scores!!!

    Guess what that is??....ATI leaders are using "Modified Drivers", Not stock!  Yes....That's right Fokes!.. Not only can you Slim Down or Mod the Operating System, then add in editing your  Bios. Then mod the GFX drivers on top of that......All for a 5 minute Program.

     

    I sitll think this means nothing to everyday people.

    Ati continues to spank on Nvidia in the GPU overclocking, and Intel still has a 2:1 ratio over AMd, BUT AMD slipped into the American continent with a score that could be hard to break ! woo this is awesome !

    what .. what the hell?

    what are you posting nothing you wrote makes any sense or is relevant to the post you quoted and is barely relevant to the rest of the thread.

    Andre Yang Posted another ground breaker for The Americas using his ATI Card. Nvidia seems to be playing possom ? or ARt they ?.?

    "Compared system Validity

    Please note that this result has been produced using display drivers which have not been validated or approved by Futuremark and will not be visible on default result search on the ORB or on the Hall of Fame."

    ...........................................................................................................................................................

    Which means the FutureMark benchmark will not be in the hall of fame , only users will be lol .... This means people who submit scores won't be competing with what FutureMark did to get that "Compared" system score. So again, the Compared system score is FutureMarks own benchmark testing.

    .........................................................................................

     

    Also the Nvidia cards are using GDDR 3 , ATI is using GDDR 5 ram .

    I see what you're saying now, sorry I was pretty tired last night. Still not relevant to my post dunno why you quoted me heh :)


    But as to your point, I don't see a single 295 on that list or any GeForce that is using approved drivers or any ATI card that is either.


    I don't see why Futuremark is having a contest to give the winners hardware that is slower than the hardware they needed to use to win it. :P

    The stats are right there, and yet it is not the real stats for the Diehards, GO ATI GO !!! :D

     

    Crazy lol

    Overclocking is not for gamming! It is a hobby in pursuit of tweaking and garnering the best possibly bench or frequencies from a given system.
