yeah, his avg gpu clock is about 150mhz less than my peak run. CPU does affect graphics score too, so he likely won't be able to match higher core CPUs without some magic, but still should be able to get that score up.Your graphics score is around what I was seeing with my 3090 FE running at stock clocks. At stock on all settings, my graphics score is 19,720 and an average temp of 56c. With just the power limit increased to 114% I can get a graphics score of 20,336 and an average temp of 59c.
Pull back your memory clocks some or entirely and see if your score stays about the same or if it improves. Because of power limitations, I find that average core clocks are lower with higher memory clocks since they both share from the same power limit. For me, I noticed core clocks start to dip by 13-17MHz when adding +250 to +500. But the +500 memory did help increase my score by a whopping .5% despite the core clock dip, the +250 made little to no difference. Also, sometimes going too high on the memory clocks can have an adverse effect on performance but the memory ECC keeps it from crashing. So, instead, your performance drops. Those memory chips create a lot of heat when cranked up and could be having an adverse effect as well.
Also, take a look at the undervolting thread on here and look at applying a curve to your overclock instead of a full on offset. It might net you more performance and less heat. I am currently running a curve offset of +150 MHz. With that along with a +500 MHz on the memory and the fans set to 100%, I can get a graphics score of 21,169.
Is 104% the highest power limit your card will allow? I am kind of surprised by that considering it is water cooled. Even the FE allows a power limit of 114%. Of course, what would be a more accurate measurement is peak wattage. I hit around 410w or so at peak when my power limit is set to 114%.
I am also a little surprised by your temps considering you are on a water cooling hybrid and have the fans at 100%. I would have expected it to be lower. What's your ambient room temperature? Are the radiator fans pulling in cool air from outside the case or pulling air from within the case?
With fans at 100% I can keep the 3090 at around 50c when running this benchmark and around 56c-62c if fans are left at default settings. 69-72c is about the highest I see my GPU temps get when fans are at default when playing something like RDR2 for extended periods. My idle temps at night are around 24-26c and 28-29c during the day when in use at default fans.
Your card has more potential. You just need to get your settings dialed in.
The cpu affects graphics score as well. The CPU score is strictly CPU, but the graphics score is based on the FPS of the 2 graphics tests, which utilize the CPU. That being said, I do see from looking at results that graphics score does seem to scale better across CPUs. I will update the leader board at some point today, and sure I will throw in links. I wonder if it will disrupt the order of the leaderboard, will be interesting to see.I'm starting to think, which I believe was mentioned earlier, that we should probably be comparing graphics scores instead of overall scores to get a better idea as to what each of us are able to squeeze out of the graphics card. I am seeing some people's scores get really skewed because of the CPU they are using.
Also, and this maybe too much of a request, can the OP attach the URL next to the score in the link for easier reference. As this thread gets bigger, it becomes more and more difficult to chase down where the link to the score is so that we can do side by side comparisons.
