It is that time of the year when folks in the Northern Hemisphere are freezing their bollocks off.

30496

And the lads and lasses in the South are out frolicking in the sun and surf.

30497

But we are ROG can have just as much fun. How I hear you ask?

Why BENCHING of course.

30498


The Benchmarks

Super Pi 32 Mil

Vantage

ROG Realbench V2 (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/37316051/RealBench_v2.0b10_Winter_Wonderland_2013_Edition.r ar)


RULES

Same CPU frequency for all benchmarks.
No Sub-Zero benching don't want any frozen ROGers found in their rooms doing an Iceberg impersonation. :D

30499

Open HWmonitor for the entire benchmark. Clearly showing the min and max temperature.

CPUz showing Frequency, Motherboard and Memory

Remember if a result is to good to be true, it probably is!

All submissions must have the official screen which was once again provided by Chris. Big thank you.

Can be downloaded now. LINK (https://www.mediafire.com/?jcqysw0frod5ceu)

Can we use RealTemp for that purpose?

Love the benchmark choice. Really. These are what I would choose for myself)

PS And before we start, once again, I'd like to whine a bit about handicaps and stuff. Menthol's mad SB-E at 5.4GHz would beat me once again(

You want me to compete against you all? Nah I have a pro cup to win. The German guys have taken our number one spot from us. Would be nice to see how far ahead of the competition you are, but then if I was playing with Ln2 I am not sure I would waste my time on above 0c methods. Especially not when there is bigger and better titles to claim.

Not far ahead of the lads at all - in fact I am sure most of them would clean me up anyhow. Why do you think I do not want to compete against them, got to maintain my dignity some how. :D

Actually benching low clock challenges are the most fun. That way you really get time to tweak the bejusus out of your system.

Menthol

I am also waiting on a specific vid card to be released, none to compete with at the moment.
Dart it is very kind of you to mention me I take that as a compliment. I trust Viz to make it as fair as possible
Why does everyone just assume that if a pro Bencher like Viz was to compete that he would win, he is human like the rest of us and as long as we all follow the same rules it is open for anyone to compete and win, it's the tough competition that makes one strive to do better

I think the competition will be over before I get RB downloaded

I dig the learn'n, when I learn something new, I win.
If we have a challenge to run the lowest freq.'s cpu and memory .. I think I got crazy last time,
and it would be hard to beat .. 400mhz cpu / 400mhz memory .. and then posted the results
running the same .. it was a fun thing to learn. Can't wait to play with this .. to tell you the truth. Thanks Viz./ROG .c.

Honestly, the 2nd pill should be green, otherwise it's about the CPUs, but you've got what I mean.

HiVizMan
12-04-2013, 08:30 AM
Menthol is quite correct, from what I have seen many of the pro bencher's are not the best tweakers at all. They have access (budget) to bench the newest hardware at the extreme point of the hardware limitations that does not really allow you the time to tweak and set up. You can do a whole heap in testing but how hardware performs changes when you go really cold. That means there are times where one setting that helps performance does not help or may actively hinder with sub zero. In my view the best tweakers are those guys who over achieve with very average hardware you can find them in the Enthusiast leagues and they only rarely go sub zero. They are the true benchers of the sport.

in Sweden we got a soda called julmust (christmas-soda), its only being sold around Christmas

30620

we also got a soda called påskmust (eastern-soda), and its the same as the Christmas-soda, just re-labeled to fit the eastern..

30621

And very taste small candy Santas called skum-tomtar ..

30622

So right now i am having skum-tomtar and julmust......

This is how we do it over here.

Santa-Claus = Jultomten to direct translate> "Jul" "tomten" = "Christmas" "Santa"

So if you hook up with a swedish girl, ask her if she want to come to your house for some skum-tomtar and Julmust, they love it..

= Home run........................ no BS

Note> Dont ask a young girls this, it sends another message, and you will end up in a very awkward situation

Nice scores guy's

Good morning Paw :) - I am having some fun with the two GTX 550 Ti I picked up cheap on ebay. It's been some time since I have played on the green team.

I want to share something I found out the other day playing with the RB-BETA V2. when I read that Menthol said about wishing he had a few more pcie slots and added his vid cards to the mobo I tried to do the same. Up until then I could only get a openCL score of 57379 with 1 of my HD 7950's so I added the 2 8800 gtx 512 cards I had. No change but when I added the SLI bridge my score jumped to 60660. can anyone explain why this worked or is this a fluk or bug. I can simulate this every time. I bet I have those wheels turning now :)

Nice start nick that gona be tough for me to beat @ 5200 Mhz for me :) Thanks Mkeys. No worries :). I don't think I am able to do 5.2G without water. Temps outside dropped to 5 - 6 degrees at night, but to go beyond 5.1with RB and Vantage seems a no go on air. If I drop my case outside with a long HDMI cable, 5.1G is a maybe :). So for me it's more a nice trip to check efficiency in different OSes and test some tweaks. For the moment these runs were on win 8. If I am lucky and have time, I want to test as much as possible. It's interesting to see how an unbeatable wall in one OS, is the starting point for another OS.

Chris don't worry m8! I'll be in for some benching tonight! Tho i would love to see more AMD coming around!

Dart let it rest. Unplug your stuff, clean cmos and after a handfull of hours go for it again ...
of course degradation when benching is in the game, its a little early for your cpu i believe, except if you stress it too much with dry ice as you planed already!

Until now I haven't set win 8 for 24/7 and I purchased a copy in August. I was thinking to go for it during holidays. For benching, I haven't seen any benchmark that runs better, except Real Bench. It gives a bit better scores compared to win7. This is a fact for RealBench version 1 and only for win8. Win 8.1 gives worst results compared to 8. For RB2 I haven't benched in win 7 to have a clear feeling. One thing is for sure, that is very sensitive to corruption.

Nodens
12-09-2013, 07:56 PM
If you disable bells and whistles for both Win7 and 8, 8 will perform better or the same as 7 for everything:) For 8.1 it's mostly due to yet unoptimized drivers. Once 8.1 drivers mature it will beat everything prior to it in performance. It has some really cool stuf like SxS directory cleaning on the background (although for dedicated benching or comparison installation make sure you disable all task scheduler tasks that are not essential for performance and for those that are (eg ssd optimizing, SxS folder compacting etc) make sure they're not actually running while you bench heh.

nikosa43
12-09-2013, 08:14 PM
Thanks Nodens, I already have followed your advice about Fast boot, hybrid staff, etc. I have disabled lots of things you mentioned especially silent ones that tend to run silently and in unexpected times, but because it's a new OS and more complicated with all the services that run in the background I haven't yet make a clear strip strategy and automate things. The moment I got familiar with some, then 8.1 came up and mixed up a bit again :)

12-09-2013, 11:01 PM
Yes its with soft fix, (shortcut shows in screeny :P) older crosshair v here, but i believe neither "-z" formula has the fix even if it has different AGESA microcode. I think someone with cvf-z can en-light more

edit: and even if its "small letters" or not something tragic, Asrock and MSI have implement the latest agesa μcode at their lead AMD boards bios updates. Asus and gigabyte should show same interest imho

Thanks guys.
My CPU really does some things I can't understand. It doesn't looks like a average degradation. I hope I would work that out and make it work.
Also I see some of you are running a bit colder than always) It's -11 outside here, would try to cool my rig down a bit)

@ Nik Damn you have no fear overvolting your CPU! I hope your chip is same strong as your balls are;)
@ twisted1 Mad clocks mate, just mad.

Previously our main platform was X79. Really nice to see our "quad core" friends are keeping ROG flag high!

It seems to me this challenge is pretty much about mem tweaking, would you guys like to show your memtweak to share some 2nd and 3th timings? Some of them can cut you seconds in Spi32M)

@ Sola would you like to team up with me, like in old good days, to improve Spi?

Sorry to hear that Menthol. Are you sure the chip is dead? I had some stupid BSODs in spi32, that were unexplainable, because in spi usually gives other errors, not BSODs and I was scared that something bad happened. Finally it was some kind of mess up in BIOS. Cleared CMOS and loaded defaults a couple of times and back to bussiness. I hope yours and Dart's is the same case.

Menthol
12-11-2013, 02:50 AM
No I'm not sure, I get the same bsod, no mater if it's default settings proven overclock settings raising and lowering every voltage, it's on a new motherboard as of yesterday and it does exact same thing, tried different memory, vid card, haven't tried PSU yet, it passed Intel test, voltages look good on PSU in software

Good stuff Flex, don't worry I will compete with you a little with the Haswell,
I think I figured out my 3930k problem, I either have a bent crankshaft or a broken timing chain.
But I figured out a way around that, I don't think it's going to do 5.4 anymore bu if I disable auto clocking and voltage features and manually set the voltage it seems to stay working, maybe enough to give Dart a headache

The working together is what these contests are all about for me, I love it when folks share tweaks and talk about the settings they are trying and just finding out what others are doing.

Tip - Vantage is very happy with video ram as high as you can get it. There are solid gains from memory.

Should have some new scores this weekend (and a few photos of the little beastie) being my GPU showed up yesterday … Wahoo …
Sadly had a busy night and didn’t even get the shipping box open but did quickly try for 2600mhz on my ram (left timings / volts where I have been running them for 2400) … and … Failed …. Miserably ….. Boot in OS ok and superPi 512K was alright but 1m has errors then … system shut down.  Same basic think happened when I simply tried to push CPU multi to 46 --- any basic/simple ideas to try or am I starting to run into the edges of this CPUS ability (already at cpu votage manualy set to 1.314) and getting into fine tuning micotweek territory

Now onto a question since we are needing to include full hwmonitor images. What are the items block out in red …. I think vin5 is my initial/eventual input voltage but the others no idea (and vcore seems to be VID+??? something)

Wow Arne, great Vantage score! I did some tests with win 7 and win 8. They are practically the same. One thing I wanted to try, was Vista 64 because of the native DX10 and I did. Disappointment.... They score lower and that proves, once again, that this OS was a big failure. It gives lower scores to the CPU tests also. Winxp32 is the only way for spi32.

Arne Saknussemm

Nodens
12-14-2013, 08:22 PM
I just checked my Vantage score on the BOT higher than I got today with lower GPU OC...have to investigate...


Most likely due to lower CPU clock or more relaxed memory timings.



Also guys forget all that Vista has native DX10 crap. There's no such thing. DX is a set of libraries that are just extended (meaning new stuff are added, old stuff stay the same). There's no difference if you run DX10 application on Vista, 7 or 8 in DX itself. There is difference in the Display driver model though and kernel/thread and i/o schedulers etc etc. Those affect it. You will have absolutely nothing running faster on Vista than it runs on 7.

EDIT: And the reason Pi runs faster on XP is simple. XP is bare compared to the the later Windwos versions and PI needs Memory and single thread. If you manage to strip down an 8 to the level of a stripped XP, 8 would beat it as well (I'm into the process of doing this..I've sent a stripped 8 version to Viz for testing at some point and he said it was fast but it was far far away from how stripped it needs to get for Pi--will work on it when I get more time although the target is now 8.1--and if I want to apply all the stuff I want to apply to it to make it a bencher's os, it'll probably have to come as an image for restore rather than installation--we'll see).

Dart, I hope Santa, in a secret mission before Christmas, replace your 290x with pair of shiny Tis and make your CPU flying to 5G with 1.2 V. As for Chris and Sola, I hope AMD's R&D department recognize their dedication and passion and bring them, the new secret Intel killer silicone for testing. Arne, if you have such a teady bear, I think you have everything you need. To everyone else, whatever their hearts want and beat for. As for me... I just want small things..like my C:\ partition for my 24/7 OS, that I have formatted by mistake last night :)

Hehe great post Nikos...up to the C:\ part...that made me wince! :(

Here I am getting ready to wazza....

Question...for wazza I was going to slot in an old GTX 460....is that against hardware rules?

Great 2D score Meankeys! Push VGA!


is that against hardware rules?
No)

Menthol, I'm waiting for your Ivy-E to arrive. We have...things...to deal with)

Thanks Nik. I'll stay on AMD cards this season. Who else will if not me?

Most likely due to lower CPU clock or more relaxed memory timings.



Also guys forget all that Vista has native DX10 crap. There's no such thing. DX is a set of libraries that are just extended (meaning new stuff are added, old stuff stay the same). There's no difference if you run DX10 application on Vista, 7 or 8 in DX itself. There is difference in the Display driver model though and kernel/thread and i/o schedulers etc etc. Those affect it. You will have absolutely nothing running faster on Vista than it runs on 7.

EDIT: And the reason Pi runs faster on XP is simple. XP is bare compared to the the later Windwos versions and PI needs Memory and single thread. If you manage to strip down an 8 to the level of a stripped XP, 8 would beat it as well (I'm into the process of doing this..I've sent a stripped 8 version to Viz for testing at some point and he said it was fast but it was far far away from how stripped it needs to get for Pi--will work on it when I get more time although the target is now 8.1--and if I want to apply all the stuff I want to apply to it to make it a bencher's os, it'll probably have to come as an image for restore rather than installation--we'll see).


That may be true for an unstripped Vista - the WR that we hold on Vista for a number of benchmarks (last few months) clearly shows that Vista in certain benchmarks rules. Proof is in the records. :D

Wazzaaaaaaaaa!:)

Hmmm is HW monitor such a resource hog?

First wazza of the day forgot to open it...so had to rerun. Without got 6m28.875

Thanks for the advices (Nodens, Vizman), not forget that part of the fun for me is the research of things. I didn't have the time to strip Vista, that's true. I follow a pattern to test OSs, disabling lots of things and keeping services about 30, so more or less they are about the same stage when I run the benches, just to make a rough evaluation about their efficiency. Win 8 and 7 clearly shows better efficiency before anyone go further and tweak more. Of course combination of drivers can make a huge difference after that.

I use Temp GT. It doesn't need installation, it' s more light because don't make acquisition of all these staff, it shows how much time is monitoring ...and when I run, I set priority to below normal :).
