My friend has a low 3dmark 06 score. SLI 8800gt & AMD X2 5200+

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
He has SLI 8800gt, stock.
AMD X2 5200+ 2.7ghz processor, stock.
3GB of Ram, Stock

His 3dmark 06 score is :
3DMark Score: 10012
SM2.0 Score: 4153
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 5740
CPU Score: 1927


Why is his score so low? Is it his processor that is his bottleneck, or could it be his drivers? Thanks for the help.

He's at stock speeds, so its probably the 5200+ bottlenecking his 8800 GT's. If he had a phenom in there, chances are he could add 3-4 K to the score.

Also, is SLi enabled as well? If SLi isn't enabled, that's about right for stock speed.

Hmm, looks like a cpu issue, that cpu score should be in the mid 2000's but i wouldnt expect much more than 15k tops with those cards at stock

Well thats what I mean..his current score is only 10k....and he says SLI is enabled. He isn't much of an overclocker, so do you think updating his drivers would help much?
post #5 of 22
he needs to overclock both his CPU and cards

It's the horrible CPU/CPU score.

That cpu score is about right. I had a fx-62 at stock 2.8GHz and only scored a 2100 or so. I have also noticed that SM3.0 isnt affected by cpu quite as much as sm2.0. Coincidence probably, but that proc is certainly bottlenecking the gpu. Only way to open em back up would be a 6400+ on a 590 board with a min speed of 3.0GHz. The Phenom 9850 will only work properly on a 790fx board and you will need at least 3GHz to help the GPU scores. 790fx obviously doesn't allow sli so I would suggest an Asus Crosshair and 6400+.

I tried a phenom 9600BE in my crosshair at 2.5Ghz and my overall score went down from the 2.8GHz fx-52.


Edit: OC the 5700+ to 3.2 GHz IF possible would make a very big difference or should at least. The locked multi will hurt though.

score looks about right, when I had my 5000+ BE and SLI 8800 640's I could not get much past 11k and that was with pretty hefty OC's

hey-

i'm having a similar problem. I just finished my first system build & my benchmark is way low for my hardware. I'm running two 9800GTX and an E8400 @ stock speed 3ghz on the 790i Ultra. I've got 4GB of OCZ 1600Mhz RAM & a bunch of other goodies. My benchmark was topped out at just over 12,000. I was shocked to see that score. I'm reading up on overclocking as I've never done it before. Any info on the benchmark or help with overclocking would be appreciated... Thanx
