I got a little over 16k in 3D vantage under stock settings. No overclocking to the 580 yet. Is that a decent score?
no .. thats a terrible score. My GPU score is around 19000k in vantage.

DX11 opens up a big can of possibilities for PC game graphics and its going to take a while for hardware ang games to come out that can really take advantage of DX11.
Have you seen Heaven benched on extreme? Current gen hardware is more than capable of running heavy tessellation, there are just very few titles that make effective use of it.

Also that vantage score is really really low OP. That's about what I scored with a single 460.

What could be causing the low score?

Probably the CPU difference. If it's not effecting your gaming though, it doesn't really matter. Nobody "plays" benchmarks after all

Also, what is your GPU score in vantage, instead of combined OP?
