It has to be. If that's his overall score, something is wrong.

its just the trial and at the end the screen pops up and says review online and that was my final score, which im bummed about cause all the reviews on my card were saying it was fast, i mean it is an upgrade from my 9550, most of my games play better than before. but that score is ridiculous

i wasnt serious when i said awesome. duh, why would i be pumped about that? i dont know i just keep running it and not changing stuff and it gets worse, oh well who cares as long as i can still play games and it looks decent right? but do know that you guys care more about you 3dmark score than something like your SAT or IQ test so whatever
