Exclamation 3DMark0-SH*T

Hey guys,

My main specs are listed in my signature. I've downloaded a trial version of 3dmark06 and did two runs with the default, locked settings:

Trial 1 (Stock system): = 10980
Trial 2 (OC @ 2.8Ghz): = 11723

I was assuming at LEAST 13,000 from all the research and reading I've done. Obviously I don't consider this program God, but I'd like to get my score higher. I'm HOPING that my low scores are a result of 3dMark being the TRIAL version and not allowing me to choose the higher resolutions, correct settings, etc.

I'm downloading the full version of 3dmark06 as we speak, and should have it installed and tested by tomorrow night. Until then, what are your thoughts?

Thanks,


Chris

While I run this test, I will say this:

For the CPU test for that one game Red Valley, it seems as though I'm trying to play that game on a 10-year old computer. The game changes a frame every half a second. Its really laggy. I wonder if that has to do with anything.

Anyway, a full test begins...

You have a better card, mines the old G80 remember and that was run on the old P5K (P35) with DDR2 as well

It's normal, I can hit 3fps briefly at 3.6GHz.

I set NVIDIA to "Performance," and I set the theme to Windows Classic.

here's a detailed read-out of the test.

Yeah, i'm gonna go knock out now. Its almost 3am here and i've got school.

What I don't understand, though, is that I'm ASSUMING I should be getting a higher score, and so far, I haven't found an explanation for it. My target was and still is around 13,000, and that's pretty realistic IMO. I want to know what is causing this! What is my bottlenecK! loll

Anyway, hopefully i'll find more answers here tomorrow. Gnite!


(Thanks again cryman)

Well there would be Vista, all the processes you have running, your cpu oc is too low to be thinking 13K, you haven't even oc'd your video card yet that I can see, for starters.

EDIT: I did a run this morning while it was cooler, cracked 14K but still behind you cryman, I've got some oc in reserve, I reckon this cpu will do better than 3.6GHz on this board, I'm only at 1.45v vcore at 3.6GHz whereas the P5K took 1.55v to run at 3.6GHz.

I reckon I can get 3.8 , maybe even 4GHz

Compare link

Higher resolution would make the score lower...

@ GhostGT, what voltage are you running through your cpu? is it still set to Auto? if so you could probably drop it down to 1.125v at 2.8GHz, 1.3v for 3.0GHz, this will lower your temperatures as the Auto setting normally supplies a higher voltage than is actually required resulting in elevated temperatures.

Yes that's true but for the sake of comparison the "standard" resolution used by overclockers for HWbot etc is 1280x1024, if you wanted to dick around with LOD etc and run it at 600x400 your scores will be higher for sure but you'd get laughed out of forums such as Guru3D for doing so.

That's your card for you, I'm tempted to upgrade to the G92 GTS 512MB yet hesitant because I want a 9xxx series when they're released (supposedly in a couple of weeks, mid Feb last I heard)

Temps at 3.6GHz are idle ~38-38-36-36, load 66-66-64-64

I'm thinking 3.8GHz will push me up close to around 70°C, I might chuck another fan on the back of the TU120e for increased airflow through the fins.

640 Is the G80 core.
9000 series is delayed till April at least except for the 9600 which is delayed till late February.

Typo, my bad I meant 8800GTS 512MB, fixed the original post

Release dates seem to be all over the place at present, speculation is rife lol
