2006 PITSTOP 500

Recommended Posts

Gryph may be down, but not out. Look for something from his bag of tricks yet. :mrgreen:

 

I'm not expecting my position to last very long, and wasn't expecting to do more than end up in the middle of the QX6700 scores in the first place, especially since I'm using air cooling. I'll be happy if I'm somewhere in the middle after a week or two.

 

Besides, there are plenty of PCMark05 and 3DMark scores way beyond what I can expect to reach with my system.

 

It's going to be interesting to see how the QX6700s overclock on water-cooled systems. My impression so far is that they can't handle as high FSBs as Core 2 Duos or reach as high CPU speeds, but they got a lot more bang for each MHz they are overclocked.

 

I'm getting ready to swap out the P5WDG2 WS Pro and swap my eVGA nForce 680i back in to see how it does with the QX6700. With a Core 2 Duo 6400, the eVGA definitely reached higher FSB, CPU, and memory speeds, but benchmark results went back and forth between the two so performance was pretty much even, except using SLI for 3DMark06.

theres a cap on vid scores?

 

I believe it's 1000, and the cap on CPU scores is 10,000. Most people hit the 100 cap on downloads. Since there are three caps, it's possible that memory and disk I/O have caps, too.

 

If I get bored, I'll see if I can hit a cap on deductions.

Hey Mike, you really did good with that score m8 especially on air cooling, I believe almost the whole top 5 or so, are running on Vapo, if not not Vapo than water cooling for sure. But hey, I think if you get atleast water cooling, damn you will break some records :woot: lol...

 

But hey Good luck on ur next run, I'm sure you will be atleast in the top 3, I doubt flew or I_G might get upto 7k, maybe XC, w0t that guy comes from nowhere, he will just pop-up :P , damn I wish I could beat that canadian bro :lol: ...

 

Cya around,

Unlike the Internet scores, the 1000 point vid cap was arbitrarily selected to prevent manipulations like this:

The CPU valuation is a limitation of the current scoring algorithm as opposed to an intentional cap, but the result is certainly the same.

Miggs, I'm certain flew didn't mean that how you are taking it. I'm sorry, but I just don't see anything in his post that is condescending or disrespectful. :huh: I read his post as he was re-affirming what you said about he and I being pretty well tapped out. It looks to me like he was agreeing with your assessment, but didn't want to speak on my behalf, as I was also mentioned.

I do remember saying somthin awhile back about you getting to 10,000 ... That isnt that far off :rofl2:

 

 

Awesome score ... is that SLI or single

It's not a legitimate score. It's an outright cheat that can be done on any computer configuration..... :mrsgreen:

 

My purpose in posting it was just to demonstrate why we have an arbitrary video cap in place.
