Results of upgrading suck (6600gt to X800XL)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I still being not lucky after each upgrade in my computer...

Im not getting anything near the supposed 30% increase in performance i was going to get going from a 6600gt to a X800XL.

I would like your opinions... what is going on with my system?

im doing the benchmarks with aquamark3... here are my results:

before:
.................................................. ................................
the system specs you see at the bottom.
XFX 6600GT
aquamark3

52.097 FPS
GFX 7515
CPU 8493

.................................................. .............................
then
the same system but Ati x800xl ... omega drivers... or catalyst.. whatever..

aquamark3

59.672 FPS
GFX 9180
CPU 8523

.................................................. ..................................


After reading all that stuff in many websites that compare video card scores.. i was specting to get at least 68 - 70 FPS with this card...
So what is going on?...

I am playing FEAR, NFSMW, Quake4 and the action is not really smooth at these framerates..

Thanks for your suggestions.

Ditch aquamark and use 3dmarks 03/05

Did you use drivercleaner to get rid off all the nvidia left overs? And maybe instead of Omega try NGO or just use ATI's stock drivers first. There should be a solid increase from that step up, it should be noticeable.

If worse comes to worse, just do a reformat.

edit: and why did you go x800xl over a 6800gs?

Who knows what the GFX and CPU numbers really mean in aquamark?
im thinking that maybe my CPU is a bottleneck...
Different drivers never do a significant difference in my case...
i have tried like 10 different versions with the nvidia and 3 now with the ati... they have different features but at the end.. they gave me the same results..

I have Abit Radeon X800XL Fatal1ty 512MB. It's incredible! And it's faster than X850PRO when i switch XTurbo mode.
