why am i getting such a crappy 3dmark06 score?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i am running a core i7 920 at 3.1ghz with a radeon hd4830 overclocked to 690 and 925.
I ran 3dmark06 and got a total score of 13419...which i thought was extremely low...
cpu score was 5051
sm 3.0 5742
sm 2.0 5114

so i compared to other similar systems..and it looks like my score is WAAAYY low...and im not sure if something is wrong or bad drivers or what..

im running the newest drivers..9.1.

a comparable system but one that was running at 4.0ghz instaed of 3.1...everything else seems similar..same 4830 card.

total score was 22858

cpu score 5658
sm 2.0 9017
sm 3.0 10331

shouldnt my sm scores be much closer to that?

anyone know why my scores suck so bad?
gpu-z is reading everything right..so it seems..

anyone?

thanks in advance for any help you can offer

The higher scores of other people could have been due to the following reasons:
1)Multi GPU
2)Different OS (XP scores more)
3)The fact that all of 3dmark06 scores are extremely CPU dependent

Have you tested your GPU OC for stability? Post a screenshot of your GPU-Z screen.

A better idea would be to bench something else such as Crysis and comparing that with results from similar systems.

here is a screenshot of gpuz

it has no artifacts using ati-tool...when i overclocked the car before..i noticed artifacts on 3dmark before atitool had any..
right now on the settings they are at..i see no artifacts. seems stable as far as the gpu clock goes and memory clock go

after you find a final overclock with ati tool, you should run it for like an hour... anyways... I think the problem with the low scores is because the cpu isnt that highly overclocked, although the 13k score seems correct based on the video card... cause it should be scoring similar to a 8800gt, which is it

so that is a normal score for this setup? i guess i need to get another 4830 asap.

is there any way to tell on the 3dmark06 score if they are using a single or crossfire setup?
