Thread: My 3dMark2001SE score seems a little low..

    I got 6386 with my new Radeon 9500 pro with FSAA, 4X.
    I got 6311 with the R9500Pro, no FSAA (notice it is less).
    6 months ago, I got 6220 with a GF3Ti200, no FSAA and Oc'd a little.
    I'm running the test at 1024 x 768/32bit

    My system:
    P4/1.7/423 socket
    Intel 850GB mobo
    1 gig PC800 RDRAM
    Radeon 9500 Pro (new)
    Audigy Platinum
    2 x 40GB IBM deskstars/ATA100
    WIN2K Pro

    I got only 109 pts more with the 9500PRO than my GF3Ti200, does that seem right?
    I got more points with FSAA on than FSAA off (with 9500PRO), does that seem right?
    My computer has always been stable, everything says it is installed OK.
    Am I running into score limitations due to my other hardware?
    Any comments are appreciated, if it works, here is the link to my 3dM2001SE score.:

    Thanks.

    I ran the test again, this time with all of the OpenGL and Direct 3D settings set at "highest performance" instead of "highest quality", as they were in the previous tests above.

    7228 3DMark2001SE points @ 1024x768/32bit/4XFSAA.

    Does that score seem OK with my system?
    I see quite a few Ti4200's getting 8000-9000, do i need a more powerful computer to get there?

    and control panel that I downloaded from the internet. This means that I never installed the CD software or DX9. Could that have anything to do with it?

    Should i be using DX9, even though none of the games I play use it?

    What is the normal way to run the test for comparison with others? Obviously specific system tweaking can produce different results, but out of the normal adjustments.
    for example a standard resolution, FSAA on or off, all settings toward performance vs. quality?

    Just run the default settings for the test as that is how we compare them as yes the slightest change in the test settings is likely to have an effect which is why we stick to the defaul test. ;)

    if you had a GF3 in your box before the Radeon - make sure you do a thorough registry cleaning & all traces of the nvidia drivers are completely gone from your system.

    Depending on how much work it would be - you may even want to consider a fresh windows install.

    I am going to re-format tonight, it's been about 9 months.
    I installed DX9 and ran the test again (with cat 3.0 drivers), no FSAA:
    9075 points.

    a little less than DX8.1 .

    at least I know that DX9 and 3.0 drivers are not problematic.
