GPU Sub Forum

Recommended Posts

I was just reading through the 5G Skylake Tweakers challenge and it got me thinking about some of the issues with 3D lately. Which then got me looking for the GPU section of the forum. It wasn't until then I noticed we don't have one. We have sub forums for nearly every CPU architecture ever made and not even a single sub forum for GPU's.

 

Could we not set something up like the CPU area? Then set up sub forum's for GPU architectures as they are released?

 

Then from there I'm sure the set freq efficiency threads would start. Being a lower clock it might encourage more people to get involved. Also will give people somewhere more specific to ask their 3D/GPU questions. Get everything in one place and make it user friendly.

 

Some nice effiency threads with CPU freq/NB Cap. Could even put a GPU freq/mem cap on it to make it more for tweakers.

 

 

Anyway just a thought of stepping in the right direction with the focus on 3D lately.

I'd really like different categories for this, like "4 core firestrike madness" etc.

Stuff where people can tweak and tune to get best scores for each platform perhaps.

 

I think it'd be loads of fun for people that may now have 5960x, or other high end stuff, but may have a 4790k or something.

Moved this thread as sticky in the new sub-forum :)

 

Nice!

 

For GPU efficiency challenges do you guys think there should be a cap on CPU clock, NB clock, GPU core clock and GPU mem clock? This would mean the efficiency lies in drivers, drives settings, extra software and RAM.

Sweeeeet! Thankyou Massman :)

 

There should absolutely be limits, yes!

 

If a card is picked for an efficiency challenge, how about using the average air MHz listed in its hardware page? (or whatever cooling the challenge wants)

 

CPU and RAM limits... absolutely! Even though those will be 95% bottlenecks if challenging in an older benchmark on air :)

Awesome PJ. Thanks mate.

 

Will work on bit of a structure, of what I think we could possibly break it down like the CPU sub forums.

 

Maybe something like this... Open to suggestions on more or less.

 

Old School

Mobile

APU

iGPU

NVIDIA Old School - Still smoking MX's and RIVA's

GeForce 6

GeForce 7

GeForce 8

GeForce 9

GeForce 2xx

GeForce 4xx

GeForce 5xx

GeForce 6xx

GeForce 7xx

GeForce 9xx

Radeon Old School - Overvolting VIVA's and X1900's for years

Radeon HD 2xxx

Radeon HD 3xxx

Radeon HD 4xxx

Radeon HD 5xxx

Radeon HD 6xxx

Radeon HD 7xxx

Radeon Rx 2xx

Radeon Rx 3xx

But with AMD that would get complicated as so much was rebranded. I was thinking code name Pitciarn, ect.

@JunkDogg what would you like to see as far as an efficiency thread goes?

What would be a good way to run it do you think? something like our threads on OCAU?

 

Yeah mate, I think like that would be perfect. It's fairly easy to distinguish who is on air/water and extreme in that format.

 

We should get the family sub forums put together first though I'd say. This way it's easier to know where they are and easier to find.

 

If someone could help me as I don't know code/family/architecture names for each generation of GPU. Also how far back you would like it to go until it goes into old school?

 

 

Thanks

I realise it will be a lot of sub forums. There are a lot of them in the CPU area as well.

 

I just think if we have 300 odd threads in one spot no one will ever find anything. Once it's set up though, it should be fairly easy to navigate.

 

Up to everyone though, I'm just happy to see it happened. Once step in the right direction.

Thanks for this pull. Little OT but is there a way for us to pull these numbers?

You can get the overall usage figures for each of the graphics cards by either checking the participants in the hardware rankings (per benchmark) or hardware pages (total submissions). By using the search function and selecting the option "Best submission" under "other" you can count the amount of users.

 

It's a bit of work, I know.

 

Specific lists like the one I posted here are only possible with database access.

I think generations would be best, perhaps combined where appropriate?

 

Nvidia Legacy Series

Nvidia 6000/7000/8000/9000 series

Nvidia 200/400/500 Series

Nvidia 600/700/900 Series

 

AMD/ATI Legacy Series

AMD/ATI 2000/3000/4000 Series

AMD 5000/6000/7000 Series

AMD 200/300 Series

 

 

Thanks bass.

 

This I like. Do it!!!!

 

Maybe a iGPU and other as well? Just in case.

Thanks for the info. Eh, not that much work :P Just always wondered about this to try to find most "valuable" hardware and thought popularity=value.
