177.35's and my 3DMark Milestone.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I upgraded to the 177.35s today (also entailed a DX9 re-install) and noticed a near 100 point increase over my previous best score with my 24/7 clocks.



This spurred me to to do some OC'ing and try for 15k again. I set my gfx core back to 800 and shader unlinked to 1950. VRam still at 1125. I always do a 7min run of ATI Tool to deem it "3DMark Stable".

And here it is, with my Q6600 @ 3.0Ghz 15010 3DMarks.



Now ima go back to gaming rather than benching...

Some nice drivers, I'll have to give them a try when I get home.

Nice increase but that 100 point increase really could have been caused by anything .

A process may not have been hogging the CPU, something may not have been accessing the disc.

Run it 3 times and see if its still a notable 100 points higher.

I get close to 800 points better on 3DMark with 169 omegas over 175 WHQ. but the 175's give me better game performance...

3DMark scores seem to go up as a result of less quality and more performance..

depending on your setups, performance is overrated on anything outside of benching IMO, unless your system cant handle the game..


Thanks for the info tho... I like trying diff drivers, it makes things interesting... Otherwise I get bored and start thinking about what to upgrade next

I will try these and see how my games react....
