Yep, same thing for me as well.
I actually meant are we going via HWBOT rules as far as tweaking is concerned?
Makes it easier just to do one run for both instead of separate runs
Well here's a little of what I've been up to....
Sgt Bilko - R7 1700x 4.0Ghz - Fury X 1125/500 - Firestrike Extreme - 8506
Will post more later on when Futuremark makes the links publically accessible.....
My Father, in his 70's, has been over clocking computers for several decades. He just upgraded to the i7 6950X and it is annoying (a good annoying only a father can do) when he gloats about how fast his system is even compared to what is out about Ryzen so far. Well, I hope one of you gets very close to his extreme overclock of the 6850X he has. His physics score was 28041 on FireStrike 1.1. He was around 4.5GHz with that score. I really hope one of you all can get close to that so I can downplay his taunting with a close score with Ryzen. His OC is impressive with just water cooling, but he has to go down! 🙂
At the very best I might be able to squeeze 22k at around 4.1-4.2Ghz but that is really pushing it here, if this was a 10c/20t CPU then it would beat the 6950x at a lower clock speed simply because Ryzen is much better at Multi threading than what Broadwell-E is.
You'd need a Ryzen 7 clocked around 5.0 Ghz or so to match a 6950x running 4.5Ghz (by my napkin math) and that's not going to happen on ambient cooling.
You can tell your old man that he gets a 28% faster Physics score for 240% more $
Actually less if you OC a 1700 to that level but oh well.....
That is what I tell him on the price point. He was so certain that there was going to be hype about the chip (which there was) and that AMD was going to over state the performance of Ryzen (they did not). I am glad he is having fun building and clocking his computer, even though he shuns everything AMD.
For me, I have to wait to build my Ryzen. With limited resources I have plan and save to get what I want. I could buy some stuff now, but I would have to compromise to much on the entire system that it would cost so much more in the end. So, with a deep breath I have to be patient and plan my build carefully. Instead I bought some upgrades for my AMD TUF INSIDE system. So far I am not into any games that over powers this system. I play a lot of Ashes of the Singularity lately and I am getting close to 60FPS on High settings with just my RX 470. I am adding a second for now to hold me over until I pull the trigger on a Ryzen system.
It is funny though that the only reason he recently bought the 6950X was because he had an older 990X chip that the FX 8370 was getting too close in PCMark scores. I beat him in drive performance with my m.2 drive until he bought a higher end faster model to stay ahead. I beat him with my RX470 on a couple of benchmarks so he upgraded from the 1060 to the 1070. Next week I get my second RX 470 so it will be interesting to see what he does when I beat that card. He will probably go get the 1080 or another 1070 to stay ahead. Fun stuff.
Nitro+ RX 480 8G OC GPU: 1375MHz GDDR5: 2075MHz @56°C -> will try to push it further
sry hadnt that much luck with her ASIC -> 73.9% -> so i dont think i can push her hard...
FX-8150 @4.45GHz @1.38V @40°C
Nitro+ 8G OC GPU@1375MHz & GDDR5@2075MHz @56°C

Hey dude, I saw you had very low temps on your RX480 benchmark run, you should easily be able to reach 1400Mhz++ on the core. What's your current Vcore @? Which tool do you use for OC? You can see your VRM temperatures and check for memory errors while running 3DMark with HWinfo64.
