Drop in 3D Mark 11 Score

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So i just put together my new rig ( Specs in my Sig)

I ran heaven at max settings and got a score of:

FPS: 48.7
Scores: 1228
Min FPS: 25.3
Max FPS: 128.6

I then ran a 3D Mark 11 Test and got a P93XX score. After installing wow, and a few small apps. I ran 3D Mark again at the end of the night and it kept on giving me errors, so i closed all my apps including PrecisionX and GPUz, and it ran fine but i got a score of P87XX.

The video scores were lower, so i re ran Heaven and got the same normal score.

Any ideas as to why the 3D Mark score could change like that ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

And the low score from lastnight, before going to sleep, same settings.

P8739: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3678980

As u can see, in the lower score, it was my Graphics score that dropped. But my Physics and Combined were higher, any idea what could explain that ?

Hmm. Can you watch GPU load with precisionX? If not use MSI Afterburner and see if the GPU is at 100% during the bench. What are your temps like?

Yes it can.

For some reason, when i run 3dmark, i cant seem to see my second screen, but based on the max temps in RealTemp, it saw 57, 55, 59, 56 so far, and only other thing ive ran is Heaven.

In Heaven, maxed out settings, my GPU is around 65C max. Not sure in 3D mark as i cant see the screen.

3Dmark11 is also CPU dependent in the physics test. Also if you have some program running in the background e.g in the systembar, then these can take "cpu-time" from the benchmark an have influence on the overall score. When you benchmark 3dmark it's best to reboot after having done other stuff than benchmarking.

Unigine Heaven is mostly GPU dependant and therefore the score is very consistant.

I just had to register when I read this thread! I have an almost identical rig to yours and have the exact same problem. My rig consists of a i7 3770K @ 4.5 GHz, a Z77X UD3H and a EVGA GTX 670 Superclocked (slightly overclocked). My initial 3DMark 11 runs gave me a score very similar to your run here: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3678980. With a very high physics score of around 11.8k at 4.5 GHz and a fairly low graphics score of around 8600.

After searching for a possible cause and solution to this problem I read something about changing from PCI Express 3.0 to 2.0 in the BIOS. After doing so I got a total score of around 9400 (I sadly didn't save any of my results). This time the physics score was "only" around 10300 and the graphics score increased to 9500. In other words similar to your run here: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3684603 (keep in mind my card was only slightly overclocked hence the slightly lower graphics score compared to yours).

After waiting a day I decided to run 3DMark 11 again with PCI Express 2.0. This time I got a crappy result again at around 8800 total score. So I'm not really sure what causes this. I also had similar problems to the problems you explained in the first post with 3DMark 11 crashing and being a pain to start.

Honestly I believe this to be a bug in 3DMark 11. I don't think our systems are performing badly or are malfunctioning in any way per se. I ran a couple of runs in the HWBOT version of Unigine Heaven and got great results with the Xtreme preset for example (compared with other systems running GTX 670s in single configurations). Download link etc here: http://hwbot.org/benchmarks/videocard

If you actually manage to find out a cause, please post it in the thread as I'm curious as well!

EDIT: I actually found the links to my runs so I changed some wrong values in the post.

Here they are:

My first run at 8840 points. With 8602 graphics score and 11833 physics score.

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3639942

My second run at 9433 points. With 9530 graphics score and 10339 physics score.

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3640126

Keep in mind that this is the exact same system. The only thing I did was to change to PCI Express 2.0.
Strangely enough, I get scores of around 8800 now even with PCI Express 2.0. I only managed to get the result at 9500ish once.

Just did a new run with the 304.48 Beta drivers and got some decent results even with PCI Express 3.0.

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3691793

It might have been a driver bug after all?
post #9 of 15
It really sounds to me like it is a 3DMark11 bug when switching back between PCIx 2.0 and PCIx 3.0. I only have the capability to run PCIx 2.0 and time after time get within 5 or 10 +/- of the previous score. Just food for thought...has anyone tried running 3Dmark06 or Vantage to see if this happens when switching between PCIx 2.0 and 3.0?
