Very low 3Dmark 11 score with a GTX 570

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi. My 3Dmark 11 score is very low with 2 GTX 570's in sli. The lowest I got was P5459 and the highest I got was P5465. I running the benchmark only at performance level. Both my cards are overclocked @ 825/1650/2004. I have a i7 920 running at stock speed.

My detailed score is:

Graphics: 5415
Physics: 7173
Combined: 4210

Those scores do seem VERY low.

I'm gonna say OC that 920 is a must, your frames will no doubt scale as you OC, given your CPU is a bottleneck for that setup.

Also, I wonder if your SLI is working properly, and whether your cards PCIe slots are running at the correct speeds. I've not a concrete idea of what scores to expect, but these are my guesses.

What PSU do you have? In fact, you should fill out your System Info through [User CP] on the top toolbar.

I got a 1000W psu. How do I check if my SLI is configured properly? It shows I have it enabled in the Nvidia Control Panel.

Also how would I check my PCIe speed? Kinda new to this.

It probably doesn't have to do anything with PCIe speed and what brand do you have for your PSU? Have you tried any other benchmarks either? It's probably just your i7 920 having a massive bottleneck. I get 4650-4700 with my 6870 so with your to 570's in SLI with a huge bottleneck it's probably what you would get.

get gpuz it will tell you what speed your sli is running at idealy you want to see pcie 2.0 x16@x16 on both...

i have issues with 3dmark 11 personally i hate it on a 2600k system with sli'ed 580gtx's its scoring just over yours at stock... if i run heaven or metro benchs it absolutly flys...

edit: just looking at the sli fix from 3dmark will try shortly and post back...

1000w doesn't really mean all that much honestly, there are plenty of "crappy" PSU's with high wattage ratings. Fill out your System Info with brand names and model numbers - it helps the process. We need to know motherboard as well, plus CPU cooling etc etc. Just fill out the info to skip the need for those questions ...

I'm not very familiar with SLI, so someone else will honestly have to jump in and help out here, but I can help you with some trouble shooting still.

It is worth opening up GPU-Z and checking that both cards are running at full-speed on their PCIe channel. Probably x16 slots for your rig.

what drivers are you using? that score sounds like a single 570 score. I broke 11k with my SLI 570's.

I think one of clock is off. Restore to stock (it should be around 730/1460/1900), start OC again and the issue should be taken care of...
