Default GPU Sub Forum

I was just reading through the 5G Skylake Tweakers challenge and it got me thinking about some of the issues with 3D lately. Which then got me looking for the GPU section of the forum. It wasn't until then I noticed we don't have one. We have sub forums for nearly every CPU architecture ever made and not even a single sub forum for GPU's.

Could we not set something up like the CPU area? Then set up sub forum's for GPU architectures as they are released?

Then from there I'm sure the set freq efficiency threads would start. Being a lower clock it might encourage more people to get involved. Also will give people somewhere more specific to ask their 3D/GPU questions. Get everything in one place and make it user friendly.

Some nice effiency threads with CPU freq/NB Cap. Could even put a GPU freq/mem cap on it to make it more for tweakers.


Anyway just a thought of stepping in the right direction with the focus on 3D lately.

Not a bad idea.

I'd really like different categories for this, like "4 core firestrike madness" etc.
Stuff where people can tweak and tune to get best scores for each platform perhaps.

I think it'd be loads of fun for people that may now have 5960x, or other high end stuff, but may have a 4790k or something.

Nice!

For GPU efficiency challenges do you guys think there should be a cap on CPU clock, NB clock, GPU core clock and GPU mem clock? This would mean the efficiency lies in drivers, drives settings, extra software and RAM.

Sweeeeet! Thankyou Massman

There should absolutely be limits, yes!

If a card is picked for an efficiency challenge, how about using the average air MHz listed in its hardware page? (or whatever cooling the challenge wants)

CPU and RAM limits... absolutely! Even though those will be 95% bottlenecks if challenging in an older benchmark on air

This topic of the efficiency challenge may be a good topic for the CCTF

Awesome PJ. Thanks mate.

Will work on bit of a structure, of what I think we could possibly break it down like the CPU sub forums.

Maybe something like this... Open to suggestions on more or less.

Old School
Mobile
APU
iGPU
NVIDIA Old School - Still smoking MX's and RIVA's
GeForce 6
GeForce 7
GeForce 8
GeForce 9
GeForce 2xx
GeForce 4xx
GeForce 5xx
GeForce 6xx
GeForce 7xx
GeForce 9xx
Radeon Old School - Overvolting VIVA's and X1900's for years
Radeon HD 2xxx
Radeon HD 3xxx
Radeon HD 4xxx
Radeon HD 5xxx
Radeon HD 6xxx
Radeon HD 7xxx
Radeon Rx 2xx
Radeon Rx 3xx

But with AMD that would get complicated as so much was rebranded. I was thinking code name Pitciarn, ect.
