[BENCHMARKS] The OFFICIAL Thread

Recommended Posts

My P870DMG cooling mod:

Added:

Two short heat pipes on master;

Two long heat pipes on slave;

Two short heat pipes on CPU;

Bunch of small heat sinks on top; 

Glued with arctic alumina adhesive; painted black;

CPU delidded and all cores pasted with Grizzly Conductonaut rated 73 W/mk.

Bottom cover cut open, all metal mesh off,  with CM Storm SF19 blowing underneath for max ventilation.

 

This might look like it's overkill for 970Ms, but mine have very sad mosfets. Before my mod, they weren't even stable with voltage 1.0v during games.

Now I am able to run them all day with 1.062v. My goal was to run them 1400~1500 Mhz all day, but seems no hope to go with voltage higher than 1.062v.

Sometimes I really wish I could upgrade to a pair of 1070s.

Decided to go ahead and bench the 6820HK/1070N. It would seem this little beast knocked out all the competition in it's class at the moment. Being BGA and all.

http://hwbot.org/hardware/videocard/geforce_gtx_1070_notebook_mxm/

Nice:thumbsup: Do you have opportunities for some CPU overclocking records for 6820Hk? Or is the processor in your Asus prevented from running at max? http://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/core_i7_6820hk/

Maybe mod a Coolermaster U3? http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/best-notebook-coolers-for-18-alienware-laptops.593626/page-46#post-10208973

@Papusan

I thought about the U3. But I am not sure if the U3 will outperform my SF19, since it has 80mm fans and mine has 140mm fans.

I might still wanna try it out because the SF19 is using a lot of space on the desk.

 

I used to overclock a 6820HK in my sold GT72S, I was able to clock it to 4.3GHz for daily use without throttling in benchmarks and games.

But voltage is way too high than 6700K. I needed 1.3v to stable 4.3GHz and 1.25v to stable 4.2GHz. Though the cooling can handle it.

My highest CPU score with 6820HK:

I meant you could mod the U3 with better 120mm 12v fans, like the one I showed in the link :)

Yes, it is pretty amazing that it can handle it. All things considered, it is really impressive for such a small laptop.

Thank you.

 

Ah I was looking for the $20 sale to obtain both of them as I'd love to run those as well. Know where I can find that deal?

 

ps. How much more do you think I'd be able to gain with Prema Magic on top of those scores?

A quick web search revealed these great buys on Advanced versions of the following benchmarks:

 

Futuremark Advanced Edition keys can be moved between Steam and stand-alone versions, so no need to run Steam bloatware. Just use the Steam key with the standalone benchmark, which can be downloaded from 3dmark.com

 

Between @Prema sBIOS and vBIOS I would expect to see an increase of about 2,000 3DMark points, potentially more depending on how much Brother Prema can do to optimize the 1080 vBIOS.

FYI, the legacy benchmarks are also fun, and the keys are free now. More details here: http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/legacy

  • 3DMark 06 - Key 3DM06-YKL9-C7R6-73WW-AAPA-VHKW (DX9 Shader Model 3.0)
  • 3DMark 05 - Key C1S0A-2VF80-D6RHW-UWZLU (DX9.0c)
  • 3DMark 03 - Key N4LWE-T6HUX-8U4JB-28YLV (DX9)
  • 3DMark 2001 - Key 7QMF2-TSLJR-ESRDD-L3FJF (DX8)
  • 3DMark 2000 - Key 6VZTY-SDZ75-KA9V7    user: Futuremark (DX7)
  • 3DMark 1999 - Key 78TR2-8DBDU-BMXXS    user: Futuremark (DX6)

Aside from being a lot of fun, these old benchmarks are great ways to see how legacy games that run older DX versions should fare under Windows 10.

@Papusan

Good call, three 120mm fans with full control probably is more powerful than two 140mm fans.

Going to destroy my SF19 before I get into U3 mod.

The first benchmark I ever ran was 3dm01 on a gf4 ti 4200. One thing that really annoyed me about optimus was how bad is was in 3dm01 (enduro is fine btw). This is why the very first benchmark I ran when I got dGPU output to work was 3dm01.

Just did a 3DMark 06 quick run on my virtual machine, dedicated one 970M with 2GB vram.

Seems like the gpu passthrough is not bad.

From 3DMark 2001 through Fire Strike... watch 'em all here. A full 50 minutes of your life that you'll never get back! 

 

The difference in realism between 3DMark 05 and 3DMark 06 is truly amazing. I used to think it was silly that those two benchmarks are so similar, but it really gives you a good perspective on how much things improved in DX graphics between those two benchmarks. That really stands out when you see them back-to-back.

I'm gonna try to reach 9000 points :P 

latest_run.png

 

EDIT:

 

highest_run.png

 

I think I'm hitting a limit on the power adaptor (measured 188w pull from the wall, I have a 180w adaptor) and the GPU probably can go further without another bump in voltage.

 

Well, it was fun, but it's 2:30 AM and I need to go to sleep :P

 

Thanks @Prema for his lovely BIOS and vBIOS :D

I doubt. 188W from the wall would have to be around 96% efficiency for you to actually be hitting a direct limit. It's possible but I don't think so; I suspect you should be able to at least burst-pull 200W from the wall. You could always consider using the 230W brick that's on the pascal P6xxRx models as an upgrade, though. Should have the same connector.

I already bought a Asus ADP-180MB F charger to use as my "on the go" charger (it's lighter and smaller than the original). I'm not planing on spending more money :P

And you are right, probably can pull 200w from the wall without much trouble, will try it today.

Is there a safe voltage maximum for Maxwell cards?

Another night at the track and some tuning. Getting a lot of wheel slippage and the engines running too rich...I know I can clock in faster with a higher trap speed in the 1/4...hmmm...in due time...

@D2ultima It seems that after pulling 255w (max) from the wall and a 1.2v aplied on my 970M the whole system said enough is enough and started beeping and flashing the led lights all over the place :P

 

Got a 8500 score, but that was about it. It was fun to push the system to it's limit, but now I'll be back to what I like to do most on laptops. Undervolt and reduce energy consumption without a hit on performance :)

      Hi all,
       
      It has been a while since I did anything to my laptop (Clevo P670RG-G) and since I recently got a VR Headset I wish I could overclock my GPU a little. So far the NVidia software (on windows) doesn't allow me to overclock it (the linux sort of allows, which some custom Xorg options) so I decided to give a try modding the vbios.
       
      I read all sorts of issues / guides about it, and it seens that the hardware topology (where the vbios is stored and how things are connected) changes from machine to machine.
       
      What I know about my laptop is that it has two VBios, one for Hybrid Mode and one for Discrete Mode. I'm currently running the discrete mode.
       
      I dumped my VBios using GPU-z and opened up in Maxwell II Bios Tweaker. Everything seens fine so far.
       
      So I have few questions about it:
       
      - There is a way to just unlock the VBios to show the overclocking options in NVidia software? (That way I dont need to reflash to change clocks)
      - I can just flash this GPU-z dump to my VBios?
      - If I brick my GPU, that GPU-z dumped image is the raw SPI image, so if I managed to physically access the VBios, I can just reflash over it?
      - I saw some people saying that I might need as well to flash the main laptop bios as well, is that really needed?
       
      Thanks!
       
      Lucas

      Greetings, I have a p650rs and I have this little problem that I can not play in MRHYBRID mode, only if the charger is connected, and I do not see high quality videos or play if it is in discret mode, if the A / C is connected.
       
      Any idea what it could be?
       
      I have the latest version of Bios and ECF
      I've been looking for custom-made Vbios but I can not find anything.
      Thank you

      Hey guys! Long time no see! Been ages since I've been here and wow has this place changed! @Briankeep up the great work!  I've been pulled away from my computer passion by raising 3 kids! All 6 and under.  Crazy how time flies! 
       
      On to what brings me here.  Love you oming for some ideas.
       
      My X7200 was recently shutting down randomly. The num lock and caps lock would start flashing and then it'd shut down. CPU and GPU Temps looked good, but fans were running a lot.  I figured whatever was hot was something HW Info couldn't see or read.  
       
       
      I repasted my GPUs and CPU, put in new thermal pads as well. Unfortunately when I tightened the CPU heatsink, I must have over tightened a screw because it pulled the screw sleeve on the mobo out. Temps are still good, idle around 33°C, and fans run full bore all the time. So it may not have quite enough pressure on a mofset or something. On the plus side, I let the computer sit on for 16-18 hours idle,and it didn't shut down, which solved one issue and created another.

      Would I be okay to superglue it back down to the mobo? Should I use some other adhesive? Then it would create a tad more pressure, evenly, and possibly solve my fan issue. Damn these old computers. Purchasing a newmobo would probably be more expensive than it's worth.
       
      I really need to retire this thing, but it's served me faithfully since Oct 2012. Eventually I'll move to something more mobile and a desktop.
