Low 3DMark results on MSI 970 Gaming?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got my 970 and I'm running my benchmark tests. My 3DMark results of FireStrike is pretty low.

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/4429466?

The score is 8191. I was expecting something higher.

I'm wondering if there is a CPU bottleneck or something else holding back the MSI card.

Any ideas?

Your overall score is obvioulsy going to be lower because you have an older cpu (lower physics score). Your gpu score on the other hand is within normal range for the given clock.

If you want a better overall score you need a better cpu.

Sweet. That's what I was hoping. Thank you for replying!

I wouldn't worry about benchmark scores, I get real bad scores in firstrike but real good in heaven 4.0
I also run fraps while gaming and all my games are set on max/ultra and I get a solid 60fps (I always have vsync enabled)
see my system specs below, I have a older system than yours.
