higher 3dmark06 with 1 card than 2.

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi,

yesterday I ran 3dmark06 with my 2 3870s enabled and I got a score of 8560. Today I decided to run it with just one card and It actually scored higher, 10050. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Probably a CPU bottleneck.

Meaning the CPU cannot give the information to the hards fast enough.

Could be thermal throttling. Try opening up your case and place a household fan against it. Run the benchmarks again.

I too had a weird score mismatch the other day but in my case it happened when going from a Q6600 to a Q6700.

The Q6600 @ 3.5 scored like 16000 or so and the Q6700 @ 3.8 only reported 14500.

What's really weird is that during the tests, the framerates for the Q6700, as reported on screen, are obviously faster than when I ran the Q66600, by about 5 to 10fps on average.

Go figure.
