LN2 Benchmarking 2/12 1PM EST

Add Your Comments

I’ll be running LN2 on a 1090T rig throughout the day. Get more details and tune in to live video, audio, and chat at Overclockers’ Live, or the forum thread.

Update

Ran for about 4-5 hours, until frost buildup got too heavy on RAM slots, and I encountered OS related issues with pifast, PCMark05, and 3D benches. I will turn back to air cooling to get those issues straightened out and insulate my RAM better, but I was able to get some fairly satisfactory wPrime1024m and wPrime32m submissions. Here are the results I submitted to hwbot.org from the session, you can click on the links to see verification of the scores as well as further settings info:
AMD 1090T @ 5771Mhz running wPrime1024m in 2 minutes 14.797 seconds. This is ranked 18th out of 86 submissions with this CPU. This means there are 17 submissions faster than mine on LN2, and there are about 15 scores on LN2 slower than mine… To me, that means two things. First, I could probably get a faster score if I spent more time tweaking my settings or ran higher voltage. Second, my CPU likely isn’t as strong as those garnering top scores.

AMD 1090T @ 5981.6Mhz running wPrime32m in 4.156 seconds. This is ranked 20th out of 131 submissions, which means there are 19 submissions faster than mine on LN2, and there are about 28 submissions slower than mine. Again, more voltage and tweaking could likely improve this score, but my CPU likely isn’t able to compete with the very top scores.

Live video of the session was recorded and is available on Livestream.com. You can also view the tear down process.

  1. Back up live. Reinstalling windows7 then will be going after pcmark05 and pifast, neither of which would run earlier today. Then some 3d runs on the 4890.
    Hey Matt, don't waste propane warming your container up :p take the rig over to a sink and use hot water. I'll drop in the stream in a sec and see what's up.
    What would cause pifast to crash immediately when the test begins, 3dmark06 to crash immediately after launching (before splash screen), and pcmark05 to fail the 3d pixel shader test?
    This is on win7, reinstalled at midnight last night, same problem. Switched between 4890 and 5870. Uninstalled and reloaded drivers on both cards. Ran without any chipset drivers or anything, then installed all chipset drivers and everything for the mobo.
    wp1024 runs fine. 3dm03 runs fine. The things that fail also fail at stock settings, or a nice easy 5Ghz overclock thats wp1024 stable at -190C.
    Anyone that can solve this riddle will forever be my hero, been up all night trying to figure something out.
    wish I could offer some help. I havent used amd for years and years, and havent had any issues running those benches on intel.I have seen issues running some benches over driver issues. My SB wont even open some of the 3d tests with certain drivers and some do just as you say, fail immediately.
    I.M.O.G.

    Your RAM stable, can you pass SPI32M?
    Yes. Passing sp32 at stock and 5ghz. These apps are failing before they start, and its totally consistent... always at the same point.
    I was running 9.6 with the 4890, and I tried both 11.1 and 10.6 on the 5870.
    Pcmark05 runs without issue, except the 3d pixel shader test... it fails before beginning.

    I feel like there's an AMD joke in here somewhere...

    Did you do a clean install of each of them? Maybe you borked the hard drive, have you tried a different one?
    LOL, mor7.
    Also, I don't think this is platform related... As in Amd is not the culprit. Are you making sure you're using the latest possible versions of each benchmark?
    I gotta take my hat off to Imog. Really kept his cool even having a s___load of trouble going cold last night ;) , seriously cool. Hat's off!:salute:
    Driver sweeper. Helps sometimes.
