X1950XT Owners

just wondering what kind of 3DMark05 scores you guys are getting with this card, i was getting 7000+ which isnt that good for this card

i got
3.4ghz
2GB 667mhz
X1950XT

please post your scores

i dont no if its my system i may need to do a formatt

  1. Here is my score for 3dmark06:
  2. My System and 3DMark05 scores are in my sig, so I'd say that is VERY low for that card
  3. i am doing a formatt to do and actually gonna install the mobo drivers i forgot last time, i know its stupid

    but anyways i will post a new score laters

    wish me luck

    More info!!! What CPU? What m/b? Are you OCing CPU/GPU? What FSB? What memory timings? These are things that can be modified without formatting... Unless something has gone *seriously* wrong with your Windows installation, you're wasting your time formatting to get higher scores in 3DMark...

    That sounds about right for 3Dmark06, not 05.

    Is your CPU an Intel P4 or Pentium D or what?
  6. Hi,

    I have just bought the ATi 1950 XT -- 256MB -

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-063-CO

    Ere is my spec :-

    http://msicomputer.co.uk/Products.aspx?product_id=703656&cat_id=77
    2 Gib of Ram made my samsung -cannot remember the speed
    AMD 3700 CPU
    MAXTOR 80 SATA HDD

    Not the highest of spec -- buxh should run Rainbow Six Vegas - at a high spec --


    Wot do u think my score will be?

    3.4 intel P4 single prescott
    mobo Asus P5B
    memory timing WTH! aint got a clue what this is its 667mhz and 2GB thats all i know :oops:

    i aint done the formatt yet, gonna do one because i had problems with install the drivers for my old card, then i did a restore point cause virsus's and shit

    gonna get it all straightened out

    That CPU will be the main reason for a lower than normal score, it'll be a fairly substantial bottleneck for an x1950xt!

    I recommend upgrading the CPU asap!
  9. oh man i heard about bottlenecking but i aint to sure could you explain a bit more please

    Basically your CPU can't keep up with your GPU - Your GPU pushes more data to the CPU than the CPU can cope with, sorta
  11. 925D @3.75Ghz (250x15)
    HIS 1950XT
    P5ND2-sli
    2Gb 500Mhz

    3D Mark 05: 10,000
    3D Mark 06: 6,000

    word
  12. Good explanation. If your video card is indeed bottlenecked by your CPU, verclocking your CPU even just by 200MHz or so should raise your score by quite a bit. It's a good way to test for a CPU bottleneck.
  13. If I have the AMD 3700 CPU & the ATi 1950XT 256 MB card.

    Would that mean my CPU will not cope with my GPU ?

    My MOBO is pretty much standard MSI KN8

    In Single Core games the CPU shouldn't be much of a bottleneck. However in multi-threaded games you'll find a nice big bottleneck!
  15. I never said it would remove the bottleneck. I said it would check for a bottleneck on the GPU by making a decent amount of improvement. I expect it would scale fairly well.

    I do agree that the chip would have to be pushed pretty high to remove the bottleneck on the X1950, no argument there. Around 4GHz is a decent estimate, I'd say.

    I did tests in WoW With the 3800+ X2 and X1900XT. I'd hang out in front of the auction house in Ironforge, on average the most crowded place in the game. I tested the difference between the stock 2.0GHz and an overclocked speed of 2.1GHz. There was a big difference in frame rate when overclocked - much smoother. I also did tests in FEAR, saw a ~5fps difference in favor of the overclock.

    Overclocking is also relative. Robs says it took 2.6GHz to remove his bottleneck. I don't have huge loads of dispensable income, so I didn't overclock that high. But it didn't take much to see that there was a slight bottleneck.

    You may want to think about upgrading to a C2D. You have the board for it, so you might as well spend the ~$200 and get an e6300. That will pair nicely with your video card.
  16. I jsut got a 1950xt also. Do you think a Athlon 64 3800+ Oced to about 2700 mhz would be okay for it? I can't exactly afford a new X2 after buying a 1950 :-)
  17. i am going to get a E6600 with the 4mb cache

    can you tell me if this will be enought for that card+is this chip anygood

    Definitely. Overclock aswell and you = win.
  19. Hi guys; here's what I'm getting...
    3DMark 06 - 6061
    3DMark 05 - 11455
    ...with the rig in my sig.
    Regards
  20. That seems low as well. I would think that system would score higher in 3dmark05 at least. (I have no knowledge of 06 scores)
  21. Yes. It's all stock/default voltages but with CPU @ 2.4GHz.
    Doesn't seem 'slow' to me! That's a good '05 score (and it's double my old rig's 3DMark '03 score, heheh).
    But those new nVidia 8800 vidcards are really fast!
    GeForce 8800 GTS - $545. (CDN)
    GeForce 8800 GTX - $735. (CDN)
    LoL :lol: For that money they better be bloody fast...
    L8R
  22. Okay I just checked my CPU temps: 28C.
    LoL, heheh... that's cold.
    I'm gonna go 333FSB, what the hell, why not?
    I'll take it up, as long as all my voltages are stock and I can still run EIST.
    Will let ya know...
  23. Hi,
    2666MHz and my idle is up to 34C.
    3DMark '05 - 12308
    ...still no 8800 though :(
    But I do get crisp performance for a good price.
    @ matthiggins7
    So, there are some more numbers for you now... have you any new '05 scores yet?
    Regards
  24. yes i did a formatt

    turned ram up was on auto before on BIOS

    overclocked my CPU to 3.8ghz

    i am getting 8400 which is good but still not great

    EDIT:

    what are the 8800 bench marks getting for example with a E6600, and 2gb of 800mhz
  25. Hiya - Can someone tell me what software i need to use to OC my CPU.

    I have gone into Bios and changed a setting for OC my CPU to "Commander" -- thats the onyl option i can see in bios.

    I'm sure there must be a easy way.

    ALSO Another problem that may cause bottle necking !!

    I have 2 gig of RAM -- 1 gig -= Sansung but with latency of 2.5 AND 1 gig = Crosair Latency of 3.0

    I ran Mark3d and got a score of 9000 + which aint too bad - i think .. Any ideas? THANKS :-)
  26. Here are my 3DMark scores with my CPU at different clock speeds. System specs are listed in my signature.

    3DMark05
    2000MHz - 10155
    2400MHz - 11387
    2800MHz - 12060

    3DMark06
    2000MHz - 5409
    2400MHz - 5679
    2800MHz - 5866
  27. Similiar problems here as well.

    I have a Pentium D 3ghz with 2 gb 667mhz mem.
    Sapphire 1950xt and my 3dmark05 scores are around 8300.
    I'm using the 7.1 ati drivers.

    Any suggestions?
  28. Hi,

    I just ran 3d Mark 05 - My score is 1000 + - No Lies !

    i only have a
    AMD 3700 +
    MSI KN8 MOBO
    1.5 GIG PC3200 RAM
    ATi 1950XT 256 MB Card

    What I did was increased the FSB to 210 - which increased my processor speed from 2.2 Stock to 2.4

    Then I killed most of my sysem processes from 30 down to 20/19 - this makes a BIG Diffrence

    I was using 300MB now only using 150MB

    Hope this helps
  29. AMD 4000 OC'ed to 2.70 GHZ, X1900XT with 512Meg, 2 gig Corsair ddr500 (timings at 2-2-2-6) Asus A8N-E and onboard sound
    3dmark 2005 12,010
    3dmark 2006 5105

    Assembling some updates now (OPTY 185 with Abit crossfire board and x-fire extreme gamer sound card) will post updates
  30. How can I improve my score then?

    Cause reading most peoples posts, mine came out OK.

    I ran the Ati Obverdrive setting thing - for automated GC over clock.

    So I guess my card is defo not running @ full potential.
  31. I am having this problem, i got only 3 FPS in one of the 05 games tests with no AA.

    My spec.

    E6600
    x1950xt
    ab9 pro
    1gig 800mhz ram

    my pc just doesnt seem to perform quickly as you would expect from the parts i built it with.
  32. I do not own this card. None of my friends own it. I have never used or touched this card. I do not have the same CPU or RAM as you.
    But if I did, my 3DMark06 scores would be 8345.

    Don't worry mate i get that around 2/3 FPS secounds on Mark 3D 05. this is only on the final parts of benchmarking.

    Is your RAM DDR2?
    Just get a core2 dual and 2gb ddr2 667. Then you can stop worrying.
    I think your P5B supports this,
  35. can anybody enlighten me .. who's faster x1900xtx or x1950 xt. seems like both are slightly below x1950xtx
  36. last time i checked the x1900xtx was faster than the 1950xt.

    btw my score is 10121 with E6600@stock and a x1950pro @stock
