3870x2 3dmark06 9k

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I've checked over at the orb site and i can see my "system" getting between 16 and 18k.

All CPU options in bios are off. Im running rdmark 06 1.1.0 with the feb patch.

Any ideas why my system nearly hits 9k ?

My cpu score seme right, but..

SM 2.0 Score/SM 3.0 Score both should be over 7k right??

Couple of things

Make sure your linkwidth is x16, look under the mainboard tab in CPU-Z.
Also make sure both cores are reaching 3d speeds, look in my sig for a verification method.

Which driver are you using, is crossfire enabled in CCC?

I didnt know you had to enable crossfire with a single card. I was told you didnt have to buy the dude I got my 3870X2 from. It wont be here till thursday. So i hope i have good luck

Just make sure you see 2 cores in the overdrive drop down menu.
