3D Mark 2006 Benchmark 7900GTX versus 7600GT SLi

Just wondering if anybody else has compared 7900 GTX single card to SLi 7600gt's in 3D mark 2006. Also to Tom's VGA chart . I have been consistantly scoring between 6600 to 6800 with my 7900 GTX. I am also wondering why I can't seem to get all that great of scores with 3D mark 2001 SE 24500 with 7900 GTX and one 7600 gt (non SLi obviously)

  1. Thats because 3dmark 01 is very CPU dependent.
  2. im running a crossfire x1800gto overclocked too 582 core 612 memory " both cards" running on 2 full 16 lane PCIE
    939 x2 4600 @ 2.6 ghz
    2 gb OCZ running at 256.2 ghz

    im only pushing 28000 ish
  3. My question is then how are some of the scores you see posted on futuremark achieved. example
    http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=9027665
    I've searched and searched, using same drivers etc.

    Confused I am.
  4. No fear here...just confused how other people can score soooo high...I want to see these big numbers too.

  5. It makes sense that 3DMark 2001SE is CPU-dependent because that guy has his Pentium 4 clocked to 4.2GHz.
  6. If I remember correctly, the last time I ran 01 was just after I got my first X800. I had it mated with a 3200+ at the time, and the increase from that and my R360 9800pro was slim to nothing in 01.
  7. Well your scoring 6600 in 3dmark06? I find it hard to believe that the rig you posted scored that high @ 2.2 ghz unless it was sli, or you were at 2.8ghz?
    Then to drop to 24k in 01, yea something is really wacky I would expect a score of 30k.
  8. 6600 is a really good score in 3DM06, especially for a single card.

    Somethings wrong.


    Any go on those screenies yet?
  10. Not sure how to post image...please help
  11. Well.. i'm not sure how different our systems really are.. but i can't hit 4k in 06. I'm at 2.650 ghz.. 1GB memory.. 7900GT *545/810*

    3845 or something like that is the best i can get it to do.. what the hell am i not doing.. some people with same exact system are getting another 500-900 on me..

    I wonder if there is a major flaw with my system.. but nothing fails any tests.. and so on.
  12. 3845 is a really sucky score for that GPU clock, but 06 does love Dual Core cpus....

    Thats my point its too good for 2.2ghz plus single card, Maybe if cpu was at 2.6~2.7 but not 2.2ghz. I never seen anything that high, and thats all i do these days ,is mess with super pi and futuremark.

    I tend to agree. I'm running a 6300 @ 3.0 ghz, with a 7900GTO @ 665/750 and I'm getting 6503 3DMark06 with 1280 rez. With the CPU @ 2.3 and GPU @ stock, I get 5860.
