3DMark06 Score Dropped - WHY? Tags: Graphics Cards CPUs Graphics Last response: November 11, 2007 8:01 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Primus462 November 11, 2007 6:21:16 PM A year ago, my 3DMark06 score was 5378, now it is 4282. What could cause this? Has the scoring changed in 3DMark? The only change I have made is I my CPU is OC'd to 2.5 GHz now. It was 2.2GHz then. Your thoughts....

Evilonigiri November 11, 2007 6:46:14 PM Yeah could be there's a lot of programs running, taking up your ram. Another thing is display drivers. It coulda been better suited before than now. Last thing I can think of is your psu can't handle it or your system isn't stable.
