hmmmm….. http://www.3dmark.com/pcm8/3970846?

3282 marks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti(1x) and AMD Phenom II X4 920

rest of specs are listed in ‘my system’ and in my signature.


according to the advanced search function under results on 3dmark, i'm in 189th place, with the same GPU but different CPUs.
top place has the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1231 v3 (3,400 MHz) with 750ti at 5401 marks.

so a 2119 point difference from a newer CPU. :(

just goes to show, benchmarks are only good for showing you how slow your computer is. and how would you know your computer is slow unless you compare it to something else?
So the little sponsored by AMD bit at the bottom wasn't amazingly visible. Any real world benchmarks available?
Here are my results, I scored 4049 points for the conventional tests and 4949 points on the Accelrated tests.
Its grown in size since I last downloaded anything from FutureMark: 2.9GBs, I give it a miss my machine works just fine for my needs.
Interesting :)

Heres my PC under stock clocks (i think the mobo overclocks a little on it's own: supposed to be 3.1ghz, but 3.4ghz with 4ghz turbo)

when i get bored i'll rerun with overclocked settings (4.4ghz no turbo) (as i'm running lighter games lately i removed the overclock to reduce the electric bill)

And for giggles, my little laptop* (1.65ghz AMD E-450 APU, Lenovo x121e)

*Though it wasn't a happy bunny in the opencl tests, fast, but with severe video lag :O
