  1. Just because its f*cking hard to find old ATI drivers. No extra advantage from Omega once you have ATT or other tweaker.
  2. Me too. Options field covered by cpu-z doesn't contain ANY settings affecting score (they are - demo looping, demo sounds, game detail level that defaults on low). The only option that is said to affect score (disable title screens between tests) isn't exposed on 3dmark main window. So it is completely safe to say that screensot was fine. Edit: okay, sorry. Antinomy says that if non-default settings were used (z-buffer depth) 3dmark will notify on that below the total score "non-standard settings were used". Putting cpuz window just below the score could cover that text. Had no idea of that, never touched display settings.
  3. I do. So what is exactly wrong? You should make vpdd mod (according to MS-8952 schematic - r9250 from MSI - RV280 has a dedicated power circuit for core transform (vdd_ct) and core pll (vpdd) units in gpu. Stock is 1.8v. Raising it up helps to fight artefacts and memory instability. Maximum benchable voltage for vpdd for me was 2.15v, 2.17-2.2v makes freezes in 2D sometimes, 2.25v ends with black screen all the time. My Palit card also had that voltage source, based on L1117, stock was 1.88v.
  4. I provide enough information and my submissions usually meet minimal requirements. Join discord channels (hwbot and ussr_over) for a bit more details. I have no will to write the same thing too many times - if you really need some input just PM me.
  5. I used ICs with same organisation and density so this kind of replacement is safest. It could require timings mod but as i was swapping for better IC, didn't need to flash bios with looser timings. Next step is 9200se 64bit. I wish to solder some hynix hy5du121622ctp-d43 (taken from usual memory module) - they have same width (16 bit - each ic, total of 4 ic) but x2 density of the stock card. I think it will also work without bios replacement but in worst case scenario I can try flashing bios of 256mb card (there are 2 256mb bioses from giga and sapphire @tpu). Otherwise it should just use 2 banks of 4 and be detected as 128mb (though 256mb will physically be present).
  6. Can't see what's wrong - cpu and display settings visible,.subtest fps also there. Explain please?)
