    Ok, so if you OC the 3200+ to FX speeds, will it actually perform like an FX chip? I.E. within a few % of the comparable speed FX chip?

    Well speed wise but not as stable considering your oc'ing to get that certain speed but will run fast and make sure you up the voltage and ... No what your doing ;)

    Hi :)
    i guess there will be a performance increase....

    not really. if u put porshe engine in a beetle it goes little faster but not really a porshe. it will still be a 3200 but will be little faster. Try running prime95 bench before and after your overclock

    If you overclock like that, it'll be very close to the performance. It may be a bit less but then the chip isn't rated to run at those speeds. Any which way, you have a nice increase

    It would perform identically to the FX chip, provided its stable. The FX chip has the 1mb cache compared to 512kb of the venice - but, you'd have to raise the HT frequency on the venice to get to it, giving it a boost from having a higher ht frequency. e.g 260*10, is faster than 200*13.

    But then again the venice would be maxed out and the FX at stock so if you oc both then the FX is always gonna win hands down

    So if you got it to FX-53 speeds with memtest/prime stable... how would it not be as stable?

    Can you really compare the 3200+ to a beetle? It's more like a corvette. If you have the vette and tune it, it'll run/perform LIKE a porsche. I think this may be a better analogy.


    Basically I'd just like to have my upcoming 3200+ perform on a similar level to an FX chip in games. Coming from a P4 2.4 (@ 2.88) I'm hoping to see a pretty decent increase in overall performance.

    Run the Sisoft Sandra CPU benchmarks and find out :)

    Yes it does :), it's actually ffaster than a stock FX

    Take the FX53 then 12X200 stock

    now wouldn't a 3200+ clocked at 2.4Ghz 10X240 be faster :)

    no your forgetting the cache and you can run a fx @ 240x10 walk in the park sort of negates that argument, lets go the other way let put the fx @200x10 and a 3200 200x10 what wins

    Now if you want to compare apples with apples here you go

    Here is a 3200+ ven @ 2900mhz 362x8 score is 35k

    http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=8688432

    Now here is an fx-53 @2929 325x9 38k

    http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=8580737

    Both with 68u's sli card clock for clock same mem same timings same mb the only diff is the cpu's 29mhz don’t equate to 3k, but i take your point Reality :)

    Come on now you can't gauge real system and game performance with 3dmark, you can use it as a guideline but that's all.

    The increase in the tests clocked at 2929Mhz can be explained by either margin of error or you had reforce disabled when you ran it that time, The one intresting thing though is how you got a 100fps increase in the Dragonthic low detail and only an 18fps increase in the high detail.

    I think you're all getting away from my original question.

    FX is stock, 3200+ is OC'd. Performance: will it be SIMILAR, meaning, yesi know the FX has a few more bells and whistles (1mb cache etc), but will it be FAIRLY close (all other things equal)?

    To put it into context - - It could be endlessly argued that if you dump a lot of work into a mustang, can it be as fast as a viper. The answer is yes, then some numb-nuts comes out and says "well you could trick out the viper and make it faster". I don't F*kn care about tricking up the viper, i want to know if the mustang, given a certain power boost (OCing) can compare to the viper.

    Also what are these tweaks that nerm has? one user got his 6800NU to give him 28k in 3dmark.
