Massman Posted December 4, 2011 Share Posted December 4, 2011 Just a heads up for everyone who's playing AMD VGA multi-GPU and doesn't have good results. 1) Play with the tesselation level in the Catalyst driver 2) Disable System Info scanning under help tab. 3) Re-run, re-run, re-run. The first option is something everyone probably already knows about. Just for reference, you might want to read this thread: http://hwbot.org/forum/showthread.php?t=17844. The second one is something that hasn't been discussed much before; only saw a thread about it on the Futuremark forums (click). Basically, with AMD crossfire multi-GPU the combined test will get a serious hit if you enable System Scan. On this SB-E setup, the score went down from ~11K to ~7K, which is a pretty big difference. By disabling system info, you won't be able to get your scores verified in the ORB Hall of Fame ... but adjusting Tesselation prevented you from doing that anyways, so who cares . The third remark is something I noticed after disabling System Info. It seems that GT1 is especially 'buggy' on this 4x 6970 setup fluctuating between 95FPS and 103FPS. You should be able to quickly see if it's a good or a bad run, though ... so shouldn't be too difficult. Underneath, two screenshots displaying the effects 2) and 3). You can see that I gained almost 3k points in Combined by disabling system info, but I lost ~6FPS in GT1 (even with increased frequencies). If you re-run enough, you will get a normal GT1 again: Another example of good vs bad GT1 run: 20418 with 95.83FPS, 20634 with 103.68FPS. Just a heads up ...
