Making My Own Rig: 3DMark and PCMark Vantage Benchmarks

Posted by OnionKnight, in Making my Own Rig 27 February 2010 · 569 views

Benchmarks 3DMark PCMark
Now that I finally finished my computer, I think its time I released some benchmarks on how well it performs.

This Vantage Marks are for a CPU and GPU that has not been overclocked. I will plan to clock them in the future.

Pretty much testing all aspects of the computer (from rendering graphics, website surfing, to HDD usage). I really don't know where my computer stands up compared to the average since they do not disclose the PCmark average for all computers tested. I just know that being able to install ET in 8-9 seconds is much much better than the time it took for my old computer :lol: and I am completely satisfied with what I got out of it XD.

Also I have just learned that here is a newer version of PCmark Vantage, but I have yet to try it.

The XFX HD 5770 was able to bench a few more marks than the HD 5770 benchmark standard on the FutureMarks Website and was exactly on par with the ATI HD 4870. The GTX 260 beat out both cards by 400 marks. Not a significant difference but a difference nevertheless.

And just to pull your G-string, the most powerful card on the market the HD5970 was able to bench a massive 24k which easily put any of these cards into the dust. Even if you overclocked to the extreme and crossfired or SLI any of these cards, you wouldn't stand a chance against a default setting of an HD5970.

Thanks for reading this series of blogs. This is the last segment of Making My Own Rig. I will be doing more things in the future so keep your eyes posted for new entries.


Thanks

I would like to give a big thanks to Number1Dad for giving me tips along the away and Thundercunt for helping me out with my fan flow and teaching me the basics of overclocking. I would also like to thank everyone who took some time to read my blogs :lol:




nice, i gonna test my comp whit same things :P


Kk. You can get both at www.futuremark.com. Just to tell you they have a newer version of PCMark than the one I used. I only used PCMark 05 because I had it on a blank DVD from long ago. I will probably test with the new PCMark soon.

heres my result whit 3dmark vantage :)

Lawl i think 3dMark must be screwed up or something. You apparently have the most powerful CPU in the world =D (LAWLL keep that pic. You can make computer junkies shit their pants when they see it).
Also for some reason 3dMark reported your GPU score way too low. The GTX 260 should be much higher like around 9600 which is the norm for that video card.

It is probably a software error with 3dmark. Unless you are running an older version of 3dmark on windows 7 (then it reads it as insanely high).

And just to pull your G-string, the most powerful card on the market the HD5970 was able to bench a massive 24k which easily put any of these cards into the dust.

that is not quite true. While the 5970 is the fastest gaming card available, its basically a dual gpu with 2 times the 5870 chips and rendering shaders. For optimal power usages both gpu clocks and gddr5 memories have been clocked lower than the 5870s chip to a 750 mhz and 4000 mhz. Plus ati has got driver issues with this dual gpu setting. The bottom line is that two 5870's in cross fire beat the 5970 by a considerable margin :P and even more 3 5770 have nearly the same performance as the 5970 :P

How about crossfired 5970's =D. 1400 bucks down the drain WOOHOOOOOOO. Either way I won't be getting that card ever =). Its like wayyyy wayyy wayy too much for a video card. Costs more than my computer itself hahaha (i got to kill a man to afford one ! Maybe 2 =D)

Hahah also check this youtube vid =P.
Well done. I'm so glad quality components are so cheap now. A mid-level gaming rig in 2000 would have cost twice as much. A lot more gamers are building their own which is great. It's getting to the point where a grand will buy you a machine that is faster than what you need to run anything that will be out in the next two years.
