How safe is stress testing my GPU? - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Thread Starter 
So I was able to see my score. Seems to be a browser issue as I can see it in firefox.

It looks like my score didn't do well at all.


Overall P1447 Target score 3300
Graphics 3944 Target score 3300
Physics Score P444 Target score 3300
Combined Score P614 Target score 3200

3DMark Score
P1447

Graphics Score
3944

Physics Score
444

Combined Score
614

GraphicsTest1
18.93 FPS

GraphicsTest2
18.72 FPS

GraphicsTest3
24.24 FPS

GraphicsTest4
11.66 FPS

PhysicsTest
1.41 FPS

CombinedTest
2.86 FPS

Seems my Graphics score is the only one that did fine. How do you even find out why your score is so low?

Also am I not able to view my score in the basic version on the application, only on a browser?

Also, I done a test in 3dmark06 and passed every test on that. So why such a big difference testing out Direct 11 performance?

The difference is not Dx11, you graphics score is good! The CPU test fails somehow. Maybe during the 3dm11 run the CPU overheated and trottled, and 3dm06 just can't load it enough for that,

But if my cpu overheats when it's tested wouldn't I find this in games? I haven't found any issues with my cpu when handling heavy loads in games or applications. So this tells me it's the application 3dmark that's the issue and not my cpu. Even after the test there is a page that says my driver has a new update driver available to download, but this isn't actually true, as nvidia's site tells me I have my drivers up to date.

By the way, I just did a stress test using prime and it never gets too hot. Hottest it got was 59 degrees, and the recommended max for my cpu is 62. So how can it be my cpu overheating.

Jesb - when you were doing the score comparison (3DMark '11 on Futuremark's website) did you parse the results for systems similar to yours? especially the same cpu? Remember that the scores reported include all systems running the same model video card. So it would be pretty unfair to compare say a Intel i7 2600K running at 4.6Ghz and GTX 560Ti to your AMD setup.

Yeah I did, it was comparing the results to other similar systems. And my results were poor. I just did a benchmark test on dirt 3 and my average FPS were 92.42, my minimum was 69.94.

So why in 3dmark am I getting less than 30 and less than 20FPS in the graphics tests? In Dirt 3 I am getting nearly 5 times higher FPS than in the 3dmark score. My question is not why is it doing poorly compared to others, but more of the general performance on this app compared to the games that show my performance is actually more than adequate.

Jes, are you running the latest nVidia driver for your video card? If not, uninstall the current driver via the Programs & Features (if you're on Windows 7) (if your on XP Add/Remove Programs) and then run DriverSweeper to catch any left over files/folders/dlls. Download and install the latest driver. Reboot.

Open up the nVidia control panel and make sure that you have PhysX set to use the video card instead of the CPU. It should be that way be default, but if not manually change it. You'll find the PhysX setting under 3D Options > Set PhysX Configuration. Also, within the 3D settings menu (global) there is an option to change the power management behavior. By default it is set to "Adaptive". Change that setting
to "Prefer Maximum Performance".

Reboot.

Re-run 3DMark and check your results.
