Hey all, Got my paws on a Sapphire HD580 this arvo so i though i would share some initial testing and benchies with you. Gone up from a 4870/512Mb. The system is as per my sig, e8400 @ 4Ghz, 4 GB RAM, 5850, Vista Ultimate 64Bit. First up: the card is exactly the same lenght as my 4870 (phew) so it fits into my case (TT Soprano). Click to view full size! I uninstalled CCC and the drivers i had (9.4) and swapped the cards over. Then simply installed CCC and drivers from the supplied disc...no probs whatsoever. Straight away i went into Overdrive and pushed the core to the max (775Mhz) and GDDR5 to 1050 (4200)Mhz. One thing i noticed is the flickering in CCC overdrive after activating it - seems harmless at this stage. Now some scores: 3DMark06 Stock settings: 4870 - 15700+ 5850 - 18500+ 5850 OC - 18700+ I dont have Vantage so please dont ask me to run it. Although 3DMark obviously doesnt show off the cards true potential. Crysis - 1680x1050, 2XAA, All settings Very High Ave: 45fps Click to view full size! Crysis - 1680x1050, 2XAA, All settings High Ave: 56fps Click to view full size! Far Cry 2 - 1680x1050, 4XAA, Highest settings Ave:72fps Click to view full size! Temps around 46 idle, havent seen it go over 65 on load. Needless to say pretty impressed at this stage, just waiting on the improved drivers....Any other requests for benchies?
