Anyone else noticed this with 3Dmark11?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Generally when I run 3DMark11 at the end of the combined physics test it will force out of the window with the aero popup warning me that my system is "running slowly" and give me the option to disable aero to improve my performance. Logically, doing so would not negatively affect my score, and if anything should serve to benefit my score because of more system resources allocatable to 3DMark11.

However, whenever I run with Aero off (either disabled prior to running 3DMark or via the popup prompt) I get a graphics score of about 1000-2000 points lower. When I tell windows to keep my current settings and not warn me again I normally get almost 11k on the graphics portion (as in my signature), but if I disable aero I normally get something in the range of 8k-9k.

The question is... what is with the counter intuitive performance and has anyone else experienced similar anomalies?

I have had the same problem, but have looked no further into it. But now you mention I will check it later today.

Also why did you buy a hyper threading cpu and then turn off hyper thread?Really should have bought a 760 I would say.

I've never gotten that warning, and your system should be able to handle aero just fine. Something is off

I've see that warning as well and always ignore it. My guess is that 3dmark11 is sucking down so many resources and windows is seeing what remains as too weak for aero, and hence the prompt (kind of annoying IMO, I do check "do not show next time" and it's always ignored). Never tried disabling aero.
