I'm not sure what's goin' on then though I'm quite happy with my older DX8 vid cards but then I'm one of those with a crappier rig;
P4 2.4B @ 2.7GHz
Volcano 7+
GA-8PE667 Pro
512MB PC3200
Leadtek 128MB GF4 Ti4200 :shrug:

Sorry m8 but I'm now truely heart broken (I'm glad that I didn't show my XP2600+'s score). :tears:

To be quite honest...the 5600 is a crappy card...my Ti4600 is better...a compare link would be most helpful...

Some Questions:
-What drivers are you using? (nVIDIA)
-Memory Timings at lowest?

Dont feel bad...i cant get over the 14k barrier (http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6850782 )

see if u had an AXP i could help u more...i know nVIDIA and VIA boards better than P4

09-17-2003, 06:13 AM
yes i know 5600 is a crappy card. dont complain i can barely break 8k. :grr: im pretty sure im using the 45.23 driver, and my memory timings are set by spd in bios. i havent touched them since i got the computer

09-17-2003, 06:44 AM
i would get the newest drivers from here (www.nvidia.com) and put down ur drivers as low as possible.

that should boost your score a tad. and one more thing...is your vid card o/c and what type of cooling does it have?

I think it's those driver's that are getting you that bad score. I read somwhere that a guy got almost a 1000 point jump from going back to 44.03. Evidently the 45.23 arent good for benchmarking (although they run UT2003 really well). Give it a shot, : peace2: Mista K6

alright ill whack the 44.03 driver in, but shouldnt i be like in the 12k's at least? yeah my video card isnt overclocked. it doesnt help things much when it is and i figure why risk it if the gain isnt worth it. im running stock asus cooling. its a little fan and heatsink but i dont really wanna mess with ordering more cooling and researching what fits and whats best. if someone handed me a fan and HS id put it on but...i just dont wanna do the work of getting one. and what do you mean by lowering my drivers or whatever????

09-17-2003, 07:26 AM
woo hoo a step in the right direction. the 44.03 gave me 500 marks, but still...im thinkin it should be higher.

09-17-2003, 08:22 AM
waht are you up to now? :?:

09-17-2003, 08:44 AM
stock frequency: 8000, overclocked to 2.8: 8500ish better but still ****ty

09-18-2003, 06:47 AM
Even though you said you wouldn't like to OC your video card, I'd bump the frequencies up a little bit and see how much that helps you with the score. Perhaps the FX is holding back your CPU, although I must admit that even the 8500 score seems a bit low for your rig.

What drivers are you using?

09-18-2003, 07:46 AM
my videocard gives me like 50 points when its overclocked right. im using 44.03 drivers. the 45's were 500 points less than the 44.03

09-19-2003, 09:05 AM
only 50 points?!

I gain prolly 250-400 points

i downloaded the Omega drivers...gonna run a bench with them and see if its any higher.

09-19-2003, 10:23 AM
omega drivers?:confused:

omega drivers?:confused:

Yes, get em here...Omega Drivers (http://www.omegacorner.com/)

im currently using the 44.03 and i got 13333 with my vid card at 310/734

but my highest of 13687 (http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6850782) was with the 40.72 drivers (non omega) and vid card at 308/702

Hope u have better luck...oh and if u do decide to install the omega drivers...it promps you when installing for Quality or Performance. The quality is a step up from nVidia's dets and the performance is a bit higher.

Have you tried the 41s?

I wonder what the fastest drivers for 3DMark01 are...

i used teh 4072's with my gf3 to get 9k (1800+ stock, 512mb pc2100, asus a7v266-e, gf3 @ 245/555) i also used them to get 13.6k ...im gonna keep tryin diffrent drivers to get the best o/c : performance ratio.

41.09's are pretty good but imo the 40.72's r the best...im gonna dl them now...

09-20-2003, 10:07 AM
i like the 44.03 but i should try the 40.72

09-20-2003, 10:29 AM
I used the 44.03 Omegas and they were faster than the regular ones.
