Second image is from single 6950..... Which ATI 6950? using the full version of Heaven Benchmark.

OK here's the image. Note the settings....




As for tweaking your 6870 I'm sure you could use Catalyst Center's Control overdrive tab to get a little more juice out of your 6870 but bear in mind the 6950 is a stronger card.

Sorry

It's not going to affect it that much that it'll raise his score that significantly. If we all had the same system but he has a 6870 and we have 6950's, our scores would be higher. On the flip side if he had a better processor than us, but still had the 6870 and we had 6950's we'd probably still have higher scores as Heaven Benchmark is a GPU based benchmark....

For that card I would say yeah, but you could search the net for benchmark scores to see.

Oh.... AA settings is off.

To be honest I really haven't played with this benchmark too much. I just downloaded it and ran it twice. Once for single card, once for Crossfire. Both done with the settings above.

lol - i'm one point behind you drew

Which ATI 6950?-heaven.png

and that's with my super-factory-overclocked card at an incredible 810 (yes, count them - 810! ) megs!

i notice my min is a lot lower (19.9 vs 32.0) - temporary glitch? - max slightly slower too (129.9 vs 131.2), but it all evened out in the end...

my gpu model is different to yours as well - i'm using latest official 11.3 drivers and app profiles - and no ccc.

Any GPU benchmarking score is going to depend on drivers - one set my get you higher numbers, another set may get lower numbers, so.....

Anyway the score posted there was sometime in Feb 2011 so we're talking Cat 10.12, maybe 11.1. What drivers are you using?

I suppose I need to run a new bench to see what score I get with the old Cat 11.4 preview drivers.

Edit: Score as of 5 minutes ago.....

This is with the "old" 11.4 Catalyst Preview drivers.

Heres mine at several resolutions and a picture of the card. I can't tell how much difference it makes, but I have it in an x8 slot.
