Tom's Hardware Superposition Benchmark Thread

Noticed that there wasn't a Superposition thread on Tom's. So I'm starting one. The moderators will be sent a Google Drive link to edit the master table to update it when I'm not around or don't have time.

Some rules you should regard and keep in mind before you post:

1. Use standard Nvidia / AMD settings, especially don't tamper with the tesselation settings.
2. Post the screenshot, provided by the screenshot function of Unigine Superposition here in this thread for verification.
3. The only allowed tweak is overclocking. No driver tweaks please.
4. You can benchmark any preset, but 1080p Extreme is preferred as it will be the result logged
5. Please no redundant results eg. lower scores via lower clocks on the same bench someone already posted on
6. Please try to keep a low post count unless you have something important to say. No double+ posts.
7. Fake results will be ignored
8. This thread is community (non-moderator) maintained. Results are not always updated immediately.
9. Feel free to resubmit your score as long as it's 200+ marks above the previous score (usually within 5% of the previous). Any lower than 200 is within margin of error.
10. You will be notified via PM when your submission has been added to the master GPU chart. If you do not wish to receive a notification, just state so in your post.

Here's the master results table:



Here's my GTX 1070 score for Superposition 1080p EXTREME

  2. Was able to get a hair over 200 points more with a 1500Mhz OC on the old girl. Also had the fan cranked to 100% which explains the max temp of 56°C.

    LOL :D

    When I was doing runs there really wasn't much difference in scores on my system, sometimes within a point or 2. It was consistent like 4443, 4444, 4445, 4443 etc at stock clocks. So when I started OCing I found it really does takes a lot of difference in clocks to actually make a notable difference in score on my machine. Started turning it up and doing runs until I went over 200+ points, started to become a mission to hit over 200+..... Didn't have to adjust the voltage though so that was good. (No way was I going to bump the voltage)

    Superposition is really something, not for the faint at heart or weak GPU's.

    Holy shoot. That's better than a stock 1080Ti.

    Isn't the 8GB 1080 just a really high-binned 1070? Or are 1070s just low-binned 1080 8GBs?

    Yeah, water cooling helps.

    Great score really.

    Most I can get is 4725 out of mine, well the most I an going to try and get, I posted the results so it's on record.

    Yes, there is a big difference between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080's.

    Saw a few scores on the site between 4800 and 5000 and higher with GTX 1080's, crazy clocks though.

    I am settling on 2113 and 5940 on mine... Never got hot at all and no voltage messing around, so I am sticking with that.

    4725 is fine with me for an air cooled GTX 1080 FTW2. :D

    I just did the power limit mod on my 1070 by shorting the power chokes. I haven't run Superposition yet but I did run the GTA 5 benchmark at 2K pixels (4320x900) and saw above 100 FPS the whole time.

    Thing is to run the Superposition bench I need to disable nVidia Surround...what a hassle...

    It's not doing me any good without a good cooler. I'm still using the stock sink until I get my Rajintek Morpheus II Core Edition, so any time the temps go above 60C the clock drops. Not to mention at 2500MHz the card artifacts like crazy. You can only go so far on the stock heat sink and 2100MHz is about it.

    I'm sure most people here have seen my custom shroud I made from three 92mm fans. Just gotta wait for my Morpheus.

    The choke mod involves shorting the parts of the card that report power consumption, which I did, and I noticed it actually works while monitoring clocks during the bench.

    Table updated.

    I dunno if Tom's forum S/W supports spoilers, but if it does, put the images in a spoiler tag for reduced bandwidth usage on metered connections.

    HBCC is a turbospeed cache that acts in the same manner as CPU cache. It's in between the GPU and the vRAM in the same way L3 cache is between CPU and RAM. Very high speed cache that speeds up read/write buffers a lot for most apps.

    Do it, it's fantastic and even with Skyrim 2K and Fallout 4's 60GB Hi-res DLC I never, ever max out the 8GB of vRAM. It's a freakin fast card.

  32. Whats funny is the system uses noticeably more power with HBCC on. It averaged around 50W-60W or so more playing Mass Effect Andromeda. Before I was just about maxing the wattage from my UPS, now the overcurrent alarm goes off all the time, so I turned HBCC off for now and ordered a bigger UPS!

    Firestrike improved by 700 points with HBCC on, Timespy about 200 pts. I think the improvements are based on how texture rich the test is. Thats probably why Superposition had such a huge jump the textures on it are insane.

    I've got a Corsair CX600 PSU, I ran my 1070 alongside a 580 both at the same time for a faster Blender export...Silicon power supply lottery is a thing I guess. The daughterboard in my Corsair CX600 is actually from a GS800 minus two 8-pin PCI plugs, so I soldered some on. The board is also labelled "800" where Corsair usually puts the wattage, so I guess someone at the factory screwed up and covered their tracks.

    Umm no. There is no such thing as a CX 800. There's a CX 750 but it's based on a completely different platform so there's no cross compatibility. Not to mention the old group regulated CX series is terrible and certainly not something you want to be stressing more than their onboard connectors already allow. The new CX(M) x50 units are better ( dumbed down version of the discontinued RM line ) and have DC to DC regulation. Still not something I'd be modding so they could provide more power than intended from the factory. That's one of the worst ideas I've ever heard.

    TL: DR : I wouldn't trust a CX 600 with a 1070 from the factory much less with some home brewed mod. You can expect 3 years out of a CX x00 just like the warranty.

  41. Because there's never been one. The CX 750 is a completely different platform that has different internals. If anything it was worse than the regular CX series. It failed in HardOCP's testing. I truly can't imagine modding a CX for any reason much less to make it capable of providing more power. Those units are only rated for 30C!

    Er, there was no CX800, I don't know what that "800" on the board is but it has nothing to do with the output.

    Being that the CX600 is a known problem PSU, pushing it how you are (and adding connectors) is a recipe for disaster, that honestly is a house fire waiting to happen.

  44. Using the same PCB for different products and changing what's populated is *extremely* common.

    And changing exact product specifications and names prior to launch is also very common.

    It's possible that when that board was designed, there was expected to be a CX800, and it was going to be used for everything 430W up. Or it's from someone else's 800W PSU and it saves on design costs. Or anything.

    Nope. The CX 430-600 use the Channel Well DSA III platform. It was created specifically for Corsair and is unique to those models.

  46. Sure, the platform may have been. But that doesn't necessarily mean that every part was. The modular board could have been grabbed from something else, or they intended to use the modular board on a future expansion of the lineup that never happened.

    I think we've established this.

    This is the very first revision, even says REV 1.0 on the PCB. I've had this since it was released, and it's powered almost every card I've had. Dual GTX460SE's, a Gigabye 580, GTX 650, GTX 660, GTX 1050Ti, 1050Ti FTW, GTX 770, GTX 950 FTW, dual GTX 550Tis, the list goes on. This PSU has proven to be extremely reliable, I wouldn't have done the mod if I wasn't confident.

    I believe this is a GS800 in the shell of a CX600 with two 8-pin plugs removed. Like I said, the PSU has proven reliable, I wouldn't have done this if I didn't think the PSU couldn't handle the load.

    The board is black and has Corsair's logo on it. I'm gonna move it to a different chassis that has little windows so you can see the fan and replace the fan with an LED one.

    I know that, but I'm fairly sure this PSU was borked somehow and that's how an 800W PCB made it into a 600W chassis. It's proven it's capable, and only time will tell.

    The fan only spins up when the interior of my case gets warm, like when I play GTA5 for 4 hours straight, and even then I can just take off the side panel.
