My 3dmark score is nowhere where it should be - Page 3

Then after installing the 5870, I installed the latest driver straight from Sapphire. I never installed the CD that came with the 5870 (no disk drive at the moment). Should I still install the amd driver you linked Scope?

Here is my new score: http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3097751
You should still be getting a higher score.

The powered/unpowered port is not relevant.

Your higher score is most likely the result from downloading the latest drivers.

Double Data Rate: 533x2=1066mhz (stock cap for all 930 cpus because of the multiplier)

Since you are at stock, your 1600mhz ram kit is still being bottlenecked to 1066mhz because the stock multipler for RAM is 8 and the stock BCLK is 133 (133x8=1066)

^ I would also guess drivers.
If the GPU was bad it would show other symptoms.

I got sick of playing with drivers and did a fresh OS install then slapped on the latest (drivers) and my Radeons never ran better.

My driver is all updated to 11.3. For some reason the vantage report is showing the packaging version, which is 8.8. Is there any way to fix this without a fresh OS installation?

Driver Sweeper?
It will clean out all traces of ATI drivers, at which point you can do a fresh install of 11.3.

I ran driver sweeper multiple times and yielded the same results.

I am going insane!!! My score dropped to 10k again. Why is there such great fluctuation in my scores? How can I get my score to where it should be? My driver is updated to 11.3, it only displays 8.8 because it's the packaging version. Help!

Run it 5 consecutive times and make sure there is nothing else running. Write down the scores and report back.
