Good morning - thought it might be cool to have a recent Unigine Valley benchmark thread.

I know a lot of people are getting their hands on the newer 970 and 980 cards and perhaps other members would like to know where their hardware stacks against some of the newer deliciousness.

Threads like this can be found all over the interweb but I figured this MSI only bench thread would be cool!

Here are my results for my 780TI SLI setup. Feel free to share your own - but be sure to run the "Extreme HD" preset so we're comparing using the same benchmark settings.

Note: Here's a link to download the Unigine Valley benchmark tool if you'd like to give it a shot. >>https://unigine.com/products/valley/download/<<

I know there's gotta be someone out there who's willing to post their results! This could become the official thread - I'd be so proud.

Anyway, so after playing some Alien Isolation last night and then some Far Cry 3, I thought I'd bench again. Why? I don't know. Doesn't sound like the ideal time to run a benchmark - but here are the results. Strange eh?

 Pretty low score with that preset.

Edit: Even if mine is low I put it in just for comparison purposes.

Very nice guys! Keep them coming!

I find that this bench seems to vary quite a bit. I can do several back to back benches, then, reboot, close down all the same processes to get a clean environment and my score will be like the first one I posted. Low 4K vs the 5K I got second! It's driving me mental...

Anyway - thank you for the sticky! I've never had a thread stickied - ever - and I like it.

Nice! I'd like to see two 980's or even 970's in SLI on this benchmark.

Here's mine again, just ran it last night after a clean boot.

If possible could you run it with only 1 gpu active? I'd like to see how I stack up with the single 980 and then try to estimate how an sli 980 would do.

Nowhere close to the 900 series card, but still serves me well at anything I have thrown at it. This card has been a real gem in all aspects.

Use Extreme HD preset else results can't be compared.

See below - this is just one of my 780 TI's active - SLI completely disabled, with a fresh reboot. Interesting results.

See below - this is just one of my 780 TI's active - SLI completely disabled, with a fresh reboot. Interesting results.

What I find most interesting is how the 980 is able to perform as well or even slightly edge out the 780ti with less cores, lower memory bandwidth, lower texture fill rate and a 165 W power vs the 780tis 250 W. Of course the Maxwell chip hits higher stock clocks which helps it.

Maxwell is quite the chip and I can't wait to see what they can do with it when they push for the actual highend maxwell chips for the I'm guessing 970/80 ti. I wonder what they could have done if they produced the chips on a 22nm fab. Then we have Pascal to look forward too as well.

None of those things really surprise me to be honest - it's a new chip - I should :censored: hope it has performance and features greater than what exists presently. I'd be more impressed if it wasn't just marginally higher performing than the 780 ti.

What I'm looking forward to are the real Maxwells on 22nm - then I'll really be interested and likely impressed (perhaps blown away) by the performance they deliver.

Thanks, I have just upgraded from ATI, having had a crossfire HD6950x2 system for a while (3 years), i wanted to try nVidia. was going to buy 2x 780ti, but then read loads of reviews regarding the 970 and they seemed to perform about the same, were the next gen, a bit cheaper (£280) and used less power, so went with them instead, the scores seem to agree with that, so I'm happy enough.:)
would love to see if they bring out a 980ti? with a 384bit bus? but guess that will be quite expensive too? now i have gone the 970 route, I guess my next upgrade will be another 970 (once the prices drop in 2015) to give tri-Sli a go ;) to expensive to keep swapping cards to next gen... ;) but then again, all depends how good the boss is  ;D and how good the 980ti is?
if 980ti kicks my two 970's I might sell them both and buy a 980ti, but loads of "IF's" there lol  :shocked: time will tell?

for now though I am really enjoying the huge increase in fps and picture quality going from HD6950 crossfire to GTX970 sli :)

Running into power limits trying to get my card to go past this. Not really sure why since I'm set to 122% but seems like the card still throttles at 100%.

You are on the wrong preset you need to be on Extreme HD not Extreme.


Broke score 3k :D. +105 core +110 Memory and stock voltage.




+130 core +120 Memory and stock voltage. My goal was 72fps so I'm done for a bit.

I am on the correct preset for each benchmark, extreme hd for valley and extreme for heaven?

We're not doing Haven here - just Valley. Maybe another thread would be best for Haven.

RippyZ - nice freaking score man - holy crap! What kind of temperatures do you reach?

Are the clocks stable enough for gaming/continual use?

Thanks, I have just upgraded from ATI, having had a crossfire HD6950x2 system for a while (3 years), i wanted to try nVidia. was going to buy 2x 780ti, but then read loads of reviews regarding the 970 and they seemed to perform about the same, were the next gen, a bit cheaper (£280) and used less power, so went with them instead, the scores seem to agree with that, so I'm happy enough.:)
would love to see if they bring out a 980ti? with a 384bit bus? but guess that will be quite expensive too? now i have gone the 970 route, I guess my next upgrade will be another 970 (once the prices drop in 2015) to give tri-Sli a go ;) to expensive to keep swapping cards to next gen... ;) but then again, all depends how good the boss is  ;D and how good the 980ti is?
if 980ti kicks my two 970's I might sell them both and buy a 980ti, but loads of "IF's" there lol  :shocked: time will tell?

for now though I am really enjoying the huge increase in fps and picture quality going from HD6950 crossfire to GTX970 sli :)


I think you made a good decision for sure with the 970s, they perform admirably.

Personally, having just got my second 780TI about a month ago - I'm pretty happy. All I have is a 1080p 144Hz monitor so I'm right in the sweet spot with these two cards.

Down the road, when say the 980TI comes out or whichever it's called, if I get the itch to upgrade, or new titles finally start coming out that become even more demanding for my resolution and targeted frame rate - I will upgrade without a doubt.

Yeah I reckon you made the correct call too, if you already have a 780ti and then another one for SLI is what i would have done too :)

will be interesting to see to if they bring out a 980ti on a 384 bit bus? but might be best for me just to go Tri_Sli with another 970? will see how things perform, price/performance wise ;)

Am  supprised RippyZ's 980 score is just 7.3% more than the 970? think it will go higher?
what total clock speeds he running for core and memory, and what voltage is he running and also wonder what heat does it generate?
I am sure he can get loads more out of it?

The max temp I've ever seen on the card is 67c, but I don't know what MSI has done with this thing. It has like hard TDP limits and temp limits at 63c ... Why give it two 8pin connectors if you can't even increase the voltage due to the artificially limitations.

As far as stability in games I'm not really sure. In CSGO I played one map and some objects textures wouldn't load (just solid black color) and one wall was solid black. Reloaded the map and same thing so I quit the game and reset OC and it ran fine. Running it now with just the memory OC and still runs fine in csgo.

nice score, this is my best single card (sli disabled) using 4000Mhz memory (+494 in Afterburner) and 1303Mhz core (+190 in afterburner)

Simon - your card is throttling or something as with +190 you should be having way over 1500mhz. My card throttles back to 1317mhz if I overclock it too much, try to lower OC on GPU and see if goes higher (or try to increase voltage, may help).

I don't think the 1304Mhz is full boost clock, its just what I read on gpu-z on "gpu clock" boost clock says 1443 but think it might even run higher than that during the benchmark, let me check my screen shots and get back to you :)

**EDIT** Ok just checked my screenshots and its reporting gpu at 1645Mhz??? is that correct, seems high, I have it set at 1304Mhz in GPU-Z, up from 1114Mhz default

I am new to nVidia cards, my first one for years, so not sure what the real setting is?

after adding 190Mhz in GPU-Z, default clock goes to 1304Mhz, boost clock goes to 1443Mhz, so how come in benchmark clock shows 1645Mhz, +202Mhz over boost speed?

don't get me wrong, i am pleased my card that get that speed without any problems, if that is the correct speed? :)

Valley benchmark reports wrong Mhz on GPu, in my case its the same.
The most reliable info you would get from Afterburner (use OSD to display GPU speed and temp as overlay on screen). Or ever if you check the charts after the test. Afterburner should indicate atleast 1500mhz on the GPU clock if you are using +190 settings.
If you can get constant value of 1500 or more it means your card is doing well. If you overclock it - it will either downclock itself to default settings or crash.

You need to find a sweet spot when card is working on constant Mhz without throttling down and without overvoltaging it too much.

Ok thanks for that, will check GPU-Z senors next time and see what its reporting, but yeah, seems stable so far, with lowish temps too :)

You where correct Lizard, my speed reading in gpu-z is 1506Mhz core and 2000Mhz memory
just gave the new 344.60 drivers a GO, Seem about the same speed wise, but not quite so stable?

4000mhz mem you mean?

can u try with 1 card only and see if any improvement since last drivers?

howabout the 30sec fan spin on those new drivers? does it still exist?
edit: it does, according to other users. ehh, nevermind... :/

Using the tool to modify your bios though it's pretty easy to fix the fan problem. The only settings that need to be fixed are fan settings so it's pretty unlikely that you'd break your gpu. I did it to my 980 and kept a backup of the old bios just in case.

Yeah,  I know,  I keep an eye on read bios mod thread and may actually give it a go but will wait just few more days and see what NVIDIA guys will come up with...  No huge rush on that for me as . 16 drivers are working perfectly fine.
