    Default Screen Vs Output and Affects on 3D Scores

    THE EXPERIMENT


    So A while ago now I asked around about how video outputs + screen size affect 3D Benchmark scores. I received a few mixed reactions to how these things affect scores. Needless to say I was not happy about the responses I got back . I felt it needed further investigation. So I grabbed some monitors and screens and set out to see how they would affect my scores.

    THE SETUP: I was originally going to conduct these tests on my sig rig but my SLI setup just wasn't ticking properly, So I have employed my office rig for the job. (The Gears.) I will be running3Dmark01.

    The testing will be done on a non optimized Win7 PC with no CPU or GPU overclocks.Running 3Dmark01 x3 times each screen. Will be testing across 5 different screen setups from CRT - 42".

    THE SCREENS:
    Ancient CRT
    Asus 23.5" LED
    Asus 23.5" LED x2 (Multiscreen.)
    Panasonic Vierra 42" TV
    Turned off screen (Asus 23.5" Just to see the effect.)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CRT-


    Screen>VGA Cable>VGA-DVI-D Adapter>5770.
    Ok so background on this thing . It's an ancient Compaq screen the main reason I put the CRT in this experiment was to satisfy my own curiosity. Might also add some interesting scores.


    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    So the average here is 40084.86666 etc. Pretty low . Lets see how the 23.5" goes.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Asus 23.5" LED -


    Screen>DVI-D Cable>5770.
    Ok so this is my standard Office setup but usually in dual monitor. I will test this thing with every adapter combination I have available .Point where 300 above the CRT. Im doing the HDMI now.

    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    Averages Here are 40320.3333 etc.. So slightly up from the CRT.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Asus 23.5" LED -


    Screen>HDMI Cable>5770.

    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    Averages Here are 40326 etc. So pretty much the same as DVI-D
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Asus 23.5" LED -


    Screen>VGA>VGA - DVI-D Adapter>5770.


    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    So the VGA cable with adapter kind of surprised me was expecting lower results .Averages Are 40279 .
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Asus 23.5" LED -


    Screen>HD Cable>5770Screen>HD Cable>5770.SCREEN TURNED OFF
    So just in the name of equal testing let's try it with the screen turned off through a benchmark.


    Run 1

    Run 2
    40218

    Run 3
    40197

    So I only took screenies off the 1st Run I completely spaced on the other 2 Averages for screen turned off where 40210.33 etc. So nothing special on this front .
    AMD, Intel, ATI, Nvidia...I don't care as long as it can be overclocked .

    23.5" LED-


    Screen>HD Cable>DVI-D Adapter>5770.


    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    So the average here is 40210.3333 etc. Which is where I was expecting up next is the 42" T.V this is where I'm really expecting some differences in scores.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    42" TV -


    Screen>HDMI Cable>5770.
    OK so First runs with the Big screen. This is my everyday screen and just wanted to see if it is affecting my regular overclocks.

    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    Averages Here are 40289.6666 etc.Which is a LOT higher than I was expecting really thought the screen size here would affect the scores. I have noticed you get a lot more tears and artifacts on the screen during the Tests but it just doesn't really seem to change the final result :thumb:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    42" TV -


    Screen>VGA Cable>VGA - DVI-D Adapter>5770.


    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    Averages Are 40422 . Which once again are higher than I was expecting.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    23.5" Multi Monitor -


    Screen>HD Cable>5770

    So just to be even I thought I would run some Multi monitor tests. Screens are NOT identical but close enough to being for the sake of the experiment.


    Run 1

    Run 2

    Run 3

    Averages here are 40260.6666 etc. I don't normally bench multi monitors but this seemed like a decent score.

    Ok so put together a quick google spreadsheet of results for easier reading.It's my first google DOC so please go easy.

    From the looks of my results it seems like unless you are using a really ancient CRT you don't get too much difference in scores. I will be continuing this experiment over the next few days as I am starting to wonder about a more GPU intensive test Like Heaven 11 . Would be Interesting to see if there is any change in points on the Direct X11 side of things. Hope this lil screen test gave someone a insight into the affects or lack of on Direct X9 .
