I'm using the free version of 3dmark11 like most people.

Here are the quick specs that matter: 2600k @ 4.6ghz,16gb G.Skill 1600mhz, 2 hd 7970's in crossfire (1 is a reference MSI R7970 the other is a Sapphire HD 7970 OC with boost).

Both cards are running at 1000mhz core clock and 1425 memory clock.

My score: 13,326

This seems like a really low score to me. I'm thinking it might be driver related but i don't know how to uninstall drivers. All i do is click on the automatic AMD driver update when it pops up in the corner every once in a while. I've never UNinstalled anything driver related. All i know is that i'm running the new 13.2 beta which supposedly improves Far Cry 3 performance but i noticed no difference. Any suggestions? The computer itself has been running kinda slow as well for the specs i have. Like i'll get the "we noticed your windows performance is running slower than normal"...blah blah i forget the exact quote.

Right click Computer > Properties > Device Manager > Display Adapters > Whatever your display adapter is > Driver > Uninstall
Then run a program like Driver Sweeper. Sweep all ATI/AMD drivers. Do this a couple of times and reboot after each time.
Finally install the newest AMD driver.

OP:
Have you tryed running it stretched and centered ?
You are stating your graphics score, which the link showed a 13.5k graphics score for 2x7850.

OP probably reported his P score, which is perfectly in line with other 7970 crossfire.

If you still disagree, your anecdotal evidence is going to trump multiple 7970 crossfire benches with direct links to 3DMark 11 site?

Thanks for the replies guys. When i had the single reference 7970 my score was 9,922 if that means anything. I'll definitely do the driver sweeper thing thank you. It's just that i'm seeing these 15-20,000 3dmark scores that baffle me. One more question...i've been running my 2600k for about a year now with an offset voltage of +.060. When i ran Intel burn test at Normal the cpu voltage went up to a 1.48 vcore. I'm pretty sure this is too much voltage for this cpu. Is there any way i can tell if my chip has degraded in performance?
