I'm getting a 3dMark05 score of about 8400. I play oblivion a lot, and it runs pretty well. I get 25-30 Fps outdoors at 1400x900. All high settings, but I don't have AA or AF turned on.
I've seen in forums around the internet that that X1900 XT should be getting over 9000, approaching 10000 on 3dMark05. If that's true, than what gives? I'm running stock speeds, are these scores from overclocked cards?
That score does seem a little low, but if you don't have any complaints about how it is in games I would not worry. For reference I have an X1900XT with a AMD 4000 (OC'd to 2.7 GHZ) on an ASUS A8NE with 2 gig ram and score about 12,000. Have fun.
There are X1900XT vidcards with 512 or 256MB memory - which is yours?
Your score is okay, but as mentioned the higher scores (with your same vidcard) are coming from newer faster CPUs...
I scored 12308 on '05 with my setup.
Hey I just bought Oblivion - it's amazing! Runs really nice though, seems to like my rig, but complicated game 8O or what...!
