Very odd question regarding video card frame rates.

OK bare with me a few seconds. I'll do my best to explain this.
First know that I have indeed verified this by swapping various parts between my Z97 and X99 boxes.

I have two 2560x1440 monitors. A Dell U2713HM and a Acer XB270HU. I have three 980Ti's ... 2x Classifieds and a G1.

Here my issue. IF I run any of the three cards with either of the monitors at native resolutions on the X99 (RVE) system doing Sniper Elite V2 benchmark my average frame rate is in the high 80's to high 90's depending on the core clock I set the card at.... any of them with either monitor with vsync off. When I run the same test with either monitor or any of the cards on the Z97 (Asus Deluxe 3.1) system I get from high 140's to high 150's depending on the core clock I set the card at.

Same drivers, same OS, same amount of system ram, SSD's, 1200P (Seasonic/EVGA) power supplies in both systems. No cooling issues in either as my X99 is WC with 2x360, 1x240 and the Z97 is ALL air in a ambient room of 0c right now. Even if I bring the RVE system into the cold it changes nothing.

A 60 frame difference is massive for the same test using the same major components.

Any thoughts here.

I'm using the latest bios I have all PCI at gen3 I'm not a rook with either system or board. My 5960x with run 4.9 under 1.4v and my 4770k will also. Even if I run my G1 at 1595 core in the RVE box my max frame rate is under 100fps while at 1500 core on my weakest card will knock down 145fps on the Z97 system.

As Sidious said to Skywalker - so weak .....

Perko,
That is very strange indeed, I assume it is unique to that one game and in 3D benchmarks like what was mentioned firestrike or unigine you don't have the same results
your results are interesting, I just googled this benchmark, it appears out dated as i found a thread on another forum with the last post in 2012 so I wouldn't put much stock in the results but interesting just the same as your using the same GPU on both systems so you would think there would be similar results with the game probably being more CPU dependent and it probably does not use multi threading so the frequency of the CPU would be have the largest effect on the score, if that is correct and both CPU's are at the same frequency it is just some kind of fluke

What about in Windows? Balanced power plan versus High Performance. I stated earlier I didn't think it could make that much difference, but I just discovered it makes a 30,000 point difference (from 86k to 116k) when running the Image Editing portion of Realbench benchmark. That's a whole lot.
I have both systems set to high performance with all settings tweaked per many guides out here.

It's old no doubt. I use it because it's fast and gives me a good notion I'm OK to start with a setting that will pass.

Here's another oddity. When I run AIDA64 and have the OSD up to run on the far right side it's about 1.5" off the screen edge where on my Z box it's right on the edge. I just swapped monitors and no change. I tried it on/off and restarted no change. It's been this way for a while but it just hit me that it's not right.

This is just plain weird.

You can drag the OSD menu wherever on your screen you want, right, left, middle, just click on top and drag over
