Near Exact Systems, 788 CPU Points different (3DMark)

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=5588685

Check out the comparison above.

Please help resolve this issue cause I am now at my wits end. Just upgraded my processor because I wanted the advantages of dual core. Upgrade seemed to go flawlessly and system is reporting everything as it should.
I had performed a 3DMark03 before my upgrade and received these results:
3DMark 9429
CPUMark 130 (Yes 130!!)

This was with my previous processor the AMD Athlon 64 3500+. I have now upgraded to the 4400+ X2 and below and in the comparison are my results:

3DMark 9462
CPUMark 135 (Nice 5 point increase)

How can this be right? Especially when you check out the comparison from the URL above. The machine is almost identical to mine apart from he has the 512MB version of my graphics card and he managed the following results:

3DMark 13356
CPUMark 923

What have I done wrong!! Could it be memory/BIOS Config/PSU etc...

  2. Also, in device manager under the computer icon,does it say uniprocessor or multiprocessor pc? Also check under the CPU icon in device manager.Does it show 2 CPU's?Did you install the dual core drivers for this CPU from AMD's website?
  3. Yea all is as it should be 2 processors under Processors and ACPI Muliprocessor PC under Computer.

    My memory configuration is 2 256MB sticks in 1&3 pair and 2 512MB sticks in 2&4 pair should I put the 1GB pair in the blue 1&3 pair. Will this help with performance? Just a thought.

    I don't think PSU is a problem because I have hooked up a voltage monitor and all seems well within limits.

    Also I've just done some gaming and it does seem as though I am benifiting from the upgrade everything feels pretty snappy but what is up with that CPU score. something is obviously wrong.

    I have a copy of Vista do you think this could be an OS problem (currently on XP Pro) if so should I take the plunge and upgrade!!
  4. Have you downloaded and installed the AMD dual core CPU driver? Don't know if that will make a difference.
  5. If you've installed the AMD dual core driver ... only other thing i can think of is to uninstall and reinstall 3dmark - some setting may be made in the registry upon installation as to whether it uses 1 or 2 cores?
  6. it does say in 3D Mark that it is a dual core but I did notice on the G15 LCD performance monitor during the CPU tests that it was only using one core and maxing it out. Other tests were using both though.

    What have I done wrong!! Could it be memory/BIOS Config/PSU etc...


    You can't trust the futuremark benchmark utitility to indicate hardware correctly. He may have his video card overclocked highly or CPU overclocked or something like this. Futuremark does not detect this correctly. I notice on my 3Dmark06 test if I set the multiplier on my CPU to 8 and an FSB of lets say 450Mhz, Futuremark assumes a 9X default multiplier of a Q6600 and shows my current CPU speed of like 3.7 - 3.8Ghz instead of 3.6Ghz. Also my video cards are overclocked and they do not show up with correct values either.

    So he is getting a higher score because he has something tricked out you may not have despite what futuremark shows.
  8. look at your running process, I see a lot that can be done away with.
  9. Yea but not a lot is actually using that much resource. I ran the demo of DiRT last night and actually got pretty reasonable framerates especially compared to what I got before the CPU upgrade. I think warezme & Coret are right in that it must be something to do with 3DMark and not my machine maybe a reinstall of 3DMark will help.
  10. My advice would be to not get hung up on this. Real world gaming results are what matter, not your score in 3dMark.
  11. Whelp... I've seen this with a C2D system on another thread. The cause was over heated CPU, which caused it to throttle, hence lower CPU score.

    Not saying it is the problem, but it's something worth looking at if you haven't done so.

    Edit:

    The thread was found here:

    My Core Duo scored 555 in 3DMark06, whats wrong? (CPU-Z pics)
  12. I had Asus Probe open on my other screen while it was running and the temps stayed pretty stable and went no where near the Max for my CPU and also I don't have cool and quiet enabled.
  13. 3DMark03 is not optimized for dual-core. Only frequency counts in this test

    try 05 or 06

    I don't think Cool n Quiet is going to matter much, since the 3Dmark does put your system under a load. It's only after it goes to idle where it can help save on electric bill and reduce heat.

    CoreTemp will work on AMD's CPUs, and it has a log you could run to see what the temps are doing. It basically a txt file that you look at after the 3dmark run.

    Just don't know what else could be happening to your CPU score.

    GL on that though.. prolly something simple overlooked. :D
