View Full Version : Is this a good benchmark score???

01-03-2004, 10:15 PM
hey, after upgrading my computer i finly got around to benchmarking it in 3dmark2001 (im getting 2003 as i type) and im was wondering if this is a good mark from my last mark of 7468

01-03-2004, 11:25 PM
You've got the wrong link there...

01-03-2004, 11:31 PM
ohh thats my mark from like 4 months ago. here i this is the one

01-03-2004, 11:35 PM
When you use that link, it goes to the current user's account, not yours.

Just post your score here. No need for the link (working or not).

There's also a serperate thread for this - just check above.

srry about that, but heres my mark 15069 3D marks

Is this a good mark for my setup?

Doesn't sound too bad to me...you could always try overclocking your RAM to PC3200 or optimizing (http://www.tweaktown.com/document.php?dType=review&dId=324) Windows XP if you haven't done so already. You should see an increase after those.

Overclocking his ram? What are you talking about, i see in his sig that he oc'ed his cpu from 2.6 to 3.1...that should already increase his ram. So how do you suggest overclocking his ram...well anyway, Tom, Does your mobo have dual channel? I think so, if so, try to put your ram in dual channel mode, that should give you more bandwidth and help you with the benchmark. Your score is low for 3.1ghz and 5900..

Oh, must've missed that it was overlocked...

Yeah, dual channel will help if you have 2 RAM sticks. Still, the benchmark seems a little low for your system - with or without dual channel.

That is not alittle low, that is very low for his system specs, he should be in the 17-18000 or higher.
I scored 16800 last night with my specs. :cheers:

Some good fast timed PC3200-3500 should help improve things a bit there as PC2700 is just a bit slow for that sort of setup and turnin' off unnecessary background processes would help as well. :beer:

Show us a compare URL.

As reference, completely stock I did 14.8k with stock clocks and no tweaking.

2.4c (200x12)
Corsair 3200LL (CH5) (200 2-3-2-5)
FX5900 (400/850)

My current score with max overclocks and tweaks is:

2.4 @ 3360 (280x12)
Kingson HyperX 3200 (BH5) (224 2-3-2-5)
FX5900 (490/900)

Use driver 44.03, High Performance Mode

Yours @ stock, 2.6, should get about 15.1k. However since you have RAM that can't keep up with your CPU....maybe 14.6k at stock clocks.

umm that really sad thing is i benchmarked it with no oc'ing i got 12k. And im kina broke I spent lots on new mother board ,cpu and case so i cant get new RAM right now all I have on $100cnd

Driver 44.03 for 3DM01, huge difference.

+40fps for me in Nature

800 points from Nature alone, not to mention a couple of the other tests.

And you don't need to run all that eye candy stuff after Nature, just the 4 game tests.

01-04-2004, 03:04 PM

01-04-2004, 03:45 PM
If ya have 2 memory modules of the same make, model and size then insert them into A1 and B1 DIMM slots (ya mobo manual explains this). :beer:

01-04-2004, 03:56 PM
nvm, there both pc 2700 but one is 256mb and the other is 512mb. I found like $30 laying around my house:angel: and i have enuff for another 512mb pc2700 or should I wait to buy 2x 512mb pc3200

01-04-2004, 04:02 PM
Ya should wait and buy 2 x PC3200-3500 of quality fast timed sticks. :beer:

Slots 1 and 3 are Channel 1
Slots 2 and 4 are Channel 2

Set your drivers to High Performance mode
