3dmark11 false readings or my card sucks!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I was wondering if something is going on with 3dmark11 or does my card suck! I ran 2 tests. One in adaptive mode and the other with maximum performance enabled. First I noticed it's only reading my card as 3gb when I have a 4gb card. Secondly, looking at the clock speeds have me concerned about this card. Hopefully I did not spend $320 on garbage! Any and all input appreciated smile.gif http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7310237

Card is fine, 3Dmark isn't reading the Vram correctly. The clock speeds are low because the card goes to idle after the bench but before the program submits the stats to the site. Score looks fine.

Ok. Thank you! That's good to know. I was seriously considering getting a different card. Can't really afford to anyways. Is there a FREE program out there that do benchmarks like this accurately? I have OC scanner, but I can't seem to test it how I want. I have heaven also.. But I'm seeing really low output there also.

Heaven 4.0 and Valley 1.0 are free and will give you benches to compare. Check out the benchmarks section.

Thank you! I'll go see what Valley is all about. Uninstalled heaven. Think it was corrupt lol. Not due to the benchmarks or anything, just crashing on me after I was trying to test my GPU. Even tho furmark passed all my tests.
