Low 3Dmark Scores

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm new here just recently signed up cuz I wanted to know if I'm the only one with low 3Dmark scores. I'm running MSI GTX 570s in SLI so you would think I would get higher scores as I've seen on reviews. Problem is I run 3Dmark '06 and get a score of P21701? Reviews I've seen gotten scores upto P35000!!! I'm running the lastest drivers and firmware in the bios. So whats seems to be the problem or is it normal? Could it be that I have a Core i5? But when I'm overclocking, I run the CPU overclocked to 3.8GHz, so could that be bottlenecking my 570s? Well I'm glad to had join the forums as I know I will meet new friends while getting help and advice. Thanks in advance guys!!

Go to the 3d mark website and compare your results with other similar systems. look at the page that shows the FPS of each individual test, that way you can tell if its a cpu issue or gfx card issue.

Also do you have SLI enabled? in the nvidia control panel. try different rendering modes.

This is what benchmarking is all about, digging to understand and understanding how to dig.

Thanks for the reply, well when I goto compare my scores, theres no one with a setup that has a Intel Core i5. Just Core i7s with SLI. Also SLI is enabled in Nvidia control panel. I just overclocked the gpus a lil and will test again to see.

Make sure your drivers aren't forcing AA/AF.

So is it recommended that I run 3Dmark without antialiasing?

Considering that AA is resource intensive and you'll get a higher score without it..

Default settings do not factor in AA/AF.
