Thread: EVGA GtX280 Triple SLI + EVGA 790i SLI Vantage numbers :)

  1. #1

    EVGA GtX280 Triple SLI + EVGA 790i SLI Vantage numbers :)

    Numbers speak for themselves I think ..I pushed a bit harder on some tests than others due to time limits this past week, but still managed some pretty nice numbers benching on my own again. So much easier to bench alone in the cave . I hear these aren't even the final drivers yet with the extra physX muscle. First ran some overclocked air numbers which the cards could easily do with stock voltage and fans cranked up on evga tool.
    All three cards I tested could do 760 core on air with stock volts. This new rev of EVGA tool is so sweet.

    Some quick air numbers and pics as a formality before the good stuff:







    Air runs on all Vantage presets:









    You can see the cards rock in vantage bigtime. The bench runs way smoother now even in the highest preset It really is four benchmarks in one as all the presets require diff tunnig. Great job FM! Vantage is my new favorite 4 games

    LN2 pics and numbers. Tek 4.0 kicks this cards butt and fits triple SLI spacing:





    Best numbers so far 2 full blown LN2 sessions in. Pushing for 1100mhz+ next runs in all presets.

    3DMARK Vantage 4 presets using:
    QX9650 F1 extreme cooled/ EVGA 790iSLI
    EVGA gtx280 Triple SLI/ TEK 4.0 LN2 cooled
    CORSAIR DOMINATOR 1800C7
    SILVERSTONE 1200W + CORSAIR HX1000W for power delivery:









    Skulltrail owns in entry preset for sure.... but I used it anyways to be complete. I had some trouble getting triple sli enabled on skulltrail so we will have to see how that plays out. 57-5800 will put up alot nicer score for E preset on 790i. Also pulled a 130k+ 03 score at lower clocks, but there is still some weird throttling going on with vista making the scores go all over the place. Need to to spend alot of time tuning there seperate from vantage before anything else.

    Outstanding Vince

    Great looking setup, the 3 cards in a row with the Tek's on them is just sick!

    nice work! I think Vantage is junk compared to 3dmark06. Vantage just feels cheap.

    I am getting used to vantage and really like it alot now. It seems to stress the HW alot harder than most other 3D benchmark, especially high and extreme preset on New Calico for gpu. Full 03' runs are totally clean and stable at higher gpu clocks than vantage 100%, same for 01 nature. For all out load testing my gpu units in 3d benchmarks, I can't overlook it as a great tool. High high clocks in quad core vantage are well earned for sure believe me. Running that big ass 24inch monitor while benching Ln2 is a little weird too, makes me dizzy but it's still pretty cool and something totally new to try. Time for something new.

    Wow, thanx for the info and cool pics. Has EVGA always had that software program for overclocking or is that new to the GTX 280? I like it.

    I suspect a lot of us here cant relate to those scores because we dont have the time with Vantage under our belts You know we wanna see the full gauntlet of 3D benches

    The tool is EVGA Precision:
    http://www.evga.com/articles/405.asp

    It works with all almost all cards, for the GTX 280/260 you will need a new version (1.2.0), it is included on the driver disk that comes with the EVGA 280/260, and also is the same one you see in the above screenshots.

    Yah the new tool is working very nicely Jac. It comes up so fast and the clocks are right there where you need them for fast access.
    P30K for sure with this setup .
    X18K, H24K, and E57K are good targets too

    @K404 yah I suspect that too a little. It's still really new but most that bench these cards will get lots of practice with vantage I bet. It runs so nice on them.

    can't you share this tool with us here?????????

    Rivatuner doesn't work properly past 693MHz core speed nor does nvidia performance software for some reason

    it will just not let any clocks stick past 693
