I have an Asus ATI X850 XT Platinum (PCIe) and a gigabyte 9600pro (AGP)
The problem with both cards is I can not run benchmark apps like 3dmark 2003 or 2005. Most games also keep crashing to desktop.
If I run 3dmard 2003 or 2005 I keep getting a texture corruption error and if I run aquamark the benchmark get all the way to the end and then I get this long error message saying something about thread could not write to something because it can not access memory xyz@$%#$%.
I have the latest motherboard drivers loaded and the latest ATI drivers loaded. I did try with older drives and the same thing happens. One PC is running win xp home and the other win xp pro with the latest DX9 download.
I am not overclocking anything and the temps of the card don’t go higher than 80 – 85C. What is up with these ATI card? Are the damaged? If so how can I test them?
It might not be anything to do with the cards but you may have some software or something that is causing the software to not work properly. I know this because I ran the 3D mark benchmarks straight after I built my latest PC fine with no probs, recently I tried running 3D mark again to test my performance was still good but it didn't run and came up with an error. I wiped my hard drive today, re-installed XP and ran the benchmarks fine.
ok i downloaded ATITool and installed it on the PC with the x850xt in it. I set the fan to stay at 100%, holy crap is it load, but the ide temp is now 40/42C and durning benchmarking the temps don't go above 64C.
the card scores:
6631 - 3D mark2005
13152 - 3D mark 2003
I still can not get Aquamark to complete a test, i keep getting this error
