3dmark06 question using a 5000 be and 3850.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am trying to figure out the reason i am getting such a low score with 3Dmark06, the free test. I score 9556 and that seems very low for my setup, i am running a AMD 5000 black running at 3.3, a 256 mb sapphire 3850 Oc'd to 750 mhz. Also i am running 4 gigs of ram and Cas 4.

ai noticed while doing the benchmark, during the part called "Cpu test" i only get 0-3 FPS, is this the reason? Any advice would be great, tyvm in advance.

Yeah, that's normal for the CPU test. The systems scoring 30,000 points only get around 4fps on that test. That score sounds about right for a 256mb 3850, which may slightly be bottlenecking your CPU. I get around 10,500 on a 8800GT and an X2 @ 2.9ghz.

Sounds about right.

your getting low cpu score because it isnt using any graphics acceleration, only your cpu. and your total score seems right.

ok great, i wasnt sure because on the 3Dmark website, it says the common computer has a score 10200, so i was wondering, i thought my build was at least better then the common cuputer sold at best buy or a chain =\\ TYVM for your help guys, when they get slightly cheaper im gonan get a 3870 x2, and im about to upgrade to an SSD as my boot drive.

A 3870x2 will definitely boost your 3DMARK06 performance as well.

I think by common they mean average, and alot of people are running core duos now. Keep in mind the highest AMD score is only around 14,500.

That score is about right. a lot of the time 3dmark06 shows gains with faster CPU's, and HUGE gains with quad core CPU's (as opposed to our "puny" dual-core's), so that's something to definitely keep in mind--a BE at 3.31GHz ain't no slouch, but at the same time, with a faster CPU, you'll see increases in 3dmark06 scores regardless.

I think the bottom line is, if you want higher 3dmark06 scores, you have no choice but to go intel at the moment. If you want good gaming performance and lower prices, but don't really care about 3dmark, stay AMD.

Out of curiosity, for overall better gaming and system performance, should i get a SSD drive first, or a 3870 x 2? Also benchmark wise could my chipset be the one bottlenecking me? i have the 770 north bridge but the 790 is best.
