HP Z620 GF 1080 Ti extreme slow

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

In order to prepare for 4K gaming and VR i upgraded my GF970 to a GF1080ti but I feel its extreme slow

 

e.g. in VRMark I get about 2800 score with my GF1080ti and I got samee score with my GF970

 

 

my cpus are dual E5-2670 with 96GB ram

 

I am using Win10-64 PRO insider edition newest build

 

 

VRMARK ORANGE ROOM BENCHMARK DESKTOP 1.0

 
VALID RESULT
SCORE 2816 
with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti(1x) and Intel Xeon Processor E5-2670
Average frame rate 61.39 fps
Target frame rate 109.00 fps
The system did not meet the target frame rate. A VR headset will try to compensate for the difference, but you will likely notice some stuttering and other distracting effects.
 
 
I am total clueless whats going on 
seems the upgrade GF970 to GF1080 ti did nothing

Just some general comments:

- for the E5 v1 Sandybridge it is necessary to download the Nvidia patch to run the card in PCIe 3.0 x16 mode. Check GPUZ to see if you have it running in 2.0 x16 and if so download and install the patch: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3135/~/geforce-gen3-support-on-x79-platform

THis should give you a slight performance boost.

- I would think that you are being seriously bottlenecked by your CPUs - you got an overall high core count but clock speed is relatively low and this is what matters for gaming.

- For gaming / VR you would be much better served with a single CPU that clocks higher - E5-1660 or if your system permits (bootblock date etc.), the E5-1650/1660/1680 v2. With slight tweaking in Intel XTU you could get the clock speed up to say 4.0Ghz and this should improve performance considerably.

Hi Calaudude,

 

I realise I'm a bit late joining the conversation but I'm also running a GTX1080Ti (and Quadro P2000) in my HP Z620.

 

When I initially installed my GTX card I was getting a low PassMark 3D score of only 8,500 and also a relatively poor score for 3D Mark. (Some individuals were getting scores around the 14-15,000 mark). After some checking I discovered this was probably due to the card running in PCIe 2 mode. After installing the same patch listed above by MtothaJ, my PassMark 3D score increased to aound 11,500, a significant increase. What boot block date is your system?

 

Still not satisfied with the newer scores, I then looked at my CPU performance. I've owned my HP Z620 long enough, (and upgraded it significantly), to realise that CPU single threaded performance is one of the most critical factors when looking at graphics, memory and disc performance. I think we all know that saying, "Your system will only be as fast as your slowest component". I've created a table which shows my upgrades and relative PassMark scores which will hopefully be of interest.

 

I notice you are running a pair of E5-2670 CPU's which should give a CPU single threaded score of around 1587 according to PassMark. (In reality this will be lower in dual CPU configuration). Incomparison, I have an E5-1680 v2 overclocked to 4.7GHz giving a single threaded score of 2551. If you are looking to maxing out your 3D performance, i.e. gaming, 4K, etc., then I would recommend you change your CPU's to something with a higher single threaded performance.

 

Relative CPU single threaded performance;

 

E5-2670 = 1587

E5-2690 = 1837 (16% increase)

E5-1660 = 1959 (23% increase)

E5-1680 v2 @ 4.7GHz = 2551 (39% increase)

 

If you look at my scores for the E5-2667 v2 and the E5-1680 v2 @ 4.6GHz you can see the jump in graphics, memory and disc performance relative to the single threaded scores. This is a particularly good example since both CPU's have 8 cores.

 

 

 

 

HP Z620 - Liquid Cooled E5-1680v2 @4.7GHz / 64GB Hynix PC3-14900R 1866MHz / GTX1080Ti FE 11GB / Quadro P2000 5GB / Samsung 256GB PCIe M.2 256GB AHCI / Passmark 9.0 Rating = 7147 / CPU 17461 / 2D 1019 / 3D 14464 / Mem 3153 / Disk 15451 / Single Threaded 2551
