RAID0 Benchmarks. Non-SSD

It’s been a while since my last blog post,
I’ve been busy with other things, However I do find time to play with computer hardware on occasion.
Here’s my updated benchmarks of my RAID0X4, i7-920 @ 3.35GHZ
RAID0-X4

I also did a comparison with the system Overclocked, and stock clocked.
This is with a stock 2.66GHZ Intel i7-920, ICH10R
RAID0-Stock-Clk

And this a Ram Drive using ASUS ROG Ramdisk
Notice the size of the test.
Ram_Disk_2048MB

Always fun to max hardware, and find the performance needed.

 

DayZ Early Access Alpha

This game got my interest back.

I recently started playing DayZ Early Access Alpha.
I’m not much for MMORPG’s but this one is really fun.

Survive a Zombie Apocalypse:
Only this game gets very real.
– Scavenge for food, and water or die
– get medical attention if you get hurt.
– watch out for Zombies, and other players.
– Find Guns, Water, Food, First Aid, Cloths, etc…
– most important, you need something to carry it all in like a backpack, or cloths with extra pockets.

You need things like real world items.
– Can opener to open a can of food, or use a knife and loose some food.
– water bottle or canteen to carry water.
– team up with other players.

Check it out on Steam.
Also check out the map http://dayzdb.com

Here’s my character, I went through about 10 before I got this far.
DayZ-Mr_Scary

If you want to monitor your CPU to GPU ratio, and Frames Per Second in game.
there is a nice overlay built into BF3

Hit the [`] key and open the console
then type the following, and press enter after each line

FPS type – “Render.drawFPS 1” without the “‘s
this will show current frames per second, 60+ is ideal if using vertial sync it will match your monitors refresh rate, 60HZ monitor = 60FPS, 120HZ = 120FPS if you are dropping below then lower your settings for better gameplay.

CPU/GPU type – Render.PerfOverlayVisible 1 without the “‘s
this will display a performance graph – Yellow is CPU, Green is GPU (graphics)

If the CPU/YELLOW is below the GPU/GREEN then the CPU is bottlenecking the graphics cards.

found it by googleing benchmark tool BF3, I wanted to get my settings perfect.
