No, actually your scores are right...If you read carefully, that link shows that that card is FACTORY OVERCLOCKED, and this is why their scores are higher. If you were to overclock your video card, your score would go well above that score.
It seems like they may have fudged the numbers somewhat. Do a few more run's though, and look at each individual score (CPU, Canyon run, ect) and compare those individaully to other reviews on your cpu and vid card. See if there is any major differences there.
EDIT: Oh crap factory overclocked. Nevermind yes those are right. Mind you I just looked at a couple reviews and you are sitting about the same.
because I have the same card, HIS Radeon X1950XT IceQ3 Turbo...does that mean mine is factory overclocked as well?
Thats a development....(should have told us what video card you had....its ok though...
Factory overclock is where the video card manufacturer actually takes the recommended clock speed settings and raises them before shipping out the card. ie: Stock: 625/900 Overclocked: 650/950. Thus the card runs faster than a non factory overclocked card.
OOPS! Reading the review even closer revealed that this card is NOT factory overclocked. (I'm so stupid sometimes.... ) But it does have a thing the manufacturer calls iTurbo, which when installed, increases the core clock speed by 25mhz, which isn't much, but could account for your 200 points.
Our HIS X1950 XT, boosted on iTurbo, was running at stock X1950 XTX core clock speeds
By activating iTurbo, you should be able to reach simmilar scores.
200 points in a 3dmark is nothing, unless that is your overall score. Honestly, I have run benchmarks in a series, and have found that the scores can range within a 1000 points in some cases, depending on what else is running (process wise). Just don't put too much emphasis on benchmarks; they are supposed to be used to ballpark your machine against what is tested hardware to see if it is performing as it should. If you are seeing noticable differences from similar hardware (2000-3000 points) or from one personal benchmark to another, you can use it to troubleshoot your PC. I know some people just build a box to brag about a benchmark score, but show no noticable gameplay difference than a box that might cost up to $1000 less. Humans cannot differentiate between 100fps and 120fps...although a benchmark might show a dramatic difference. Its all about what is your prioritiy.
