3dmark question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok ive been battling for a week now to try breach 10K in 3dmark06 but no luck. I pumped my CPU from 2.5ghz up to 3.0ghz, and GPU from 500/800 to 630/950. My score went from a stock: 8500 to a OC: 9400, yet ive seen 8800GTS 320's breach 11K!!! Do you guys change the default nvidia setting from quality to performance? havnt tried that cause im guessing you supposed to leave it standard. Anything else I could try? Any higher OC's become unstable.

Any help plz, thanks guys

I believe most people who reach over 10K are using C2D's. Though if you OC' a little father I think you would have it. How's that Brisbane doing? I thought about getting the 5000* ver and seeing how high I can get it...

Of course to performance. You want to squeeze the most out of that card (for gaming, I go for all-out quality though, including high AA/AF levels).

For the benchmarks, set AA/AF to 'application controlled', and anything else to whatever gives you most performance.

However, your bottleneck is the CPU. 3.0GHz isn't enough for high 3DMarks.

Well in games im having no prob with my 4800X2, just 3DMark06
So are there no AM2's with 8800GTS 320's that have breached 10K?

Depends... if you shoot for the highest bench possible, you do whatever you can to get there (short from changing resolution and other settings within 3DMark, or forcibly overruling its AA/AF or any other settings).

However, if you just want to test what score you get in your gaming setup, then yes, I run it at high quality and forced AA/AF

And yes, I did note that with nVidia, the difference between 'performance' and 'quality' settings isn't that great. With ATI, the difference was MUCH greater (both in quality and in performance)

Note that I barely cracked 10k with my previous Opty170/Crossfire X1900 set up. The Crossfire set up is about equally as powerful as a set up with a single 8800GTS.... Thus, with luck you can do it, but don't count on it.

Right now, with the Core 2 Duo and a 640MB 8800GTS, I hit over 12k. but, that's an insane card overclocking wise.

3DMark06 is much more CPU dependent than most games out there...and heck, with any set up that gives you 7k or more, you should have no problem playing whatever game you desire.

That might be a different story in DX10 mode

However, I think I saw a thread somewhere around here that RAM is the singlemost important aspect. 2GB, an 8800 series card and a decent CPU should run it (no idea if all maxed out though ).

Again, games are generally not as CPU intensive as 3DMark.
