3dmark 11 inconsistent score graphics test 1

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a trifire setup and while running 3dmark 11 graphics test 1 has inconsistent scores, as if not all the cards are kicking in, throttling down, or not consistent gpu usage. When its working right it usally starts in the high 70's-80's. But when its not working it starts in the low 50's, overall score in that test is about 30 frames difference when working right and not working. I have tried searching this problem and I am not finding anything. I have also tried numerous drivers, power control settings in CCC at 0 and +20% and fresh install. To actually getting it working right is a crap shoot, I simply try it and if its not working re-boot and try again. Very frustrating since some friends and I are having a contest (they are using nvidia) . Powersupply is silent pro gold 1200watt, and dont have any problems while gaming. Just wondering if anyone has heard of this before or possibly know of a fix. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Try to disable ULPS and remove Afterburner running in the background.

To disable ULPS (Ultra Low Power Saving):

1. Go to regedit (start > search programs and files > "regedit").
2. In drop down menu: find file > type "enableulps".
3. For ALL instances (keep pressing F3) change the "1" value to a "0".
4. Reboot PC.
