  1. That looks like a great score to me. I can't seem to get those graphic scores with my OC 8800gts 512, did you do anything to Vista to streamline it?

    Or perhaps it just because you CPU is clocked a bit higher.

    What are the graphics portion of your score? OP is kind enough to post the graphics portion of his score too. So take a look.

    It's strange that he got higher SM3 score than SM2 though. On default, SM2 should be higher. This usually happen when you tweak driver settings to improve score, namely increasing number of pre-rendered frames, which should increase benchmark as well as in-game performance.
  3. Standard install and latest drivers.
  4. My Score breakdown is in my Sig. Which is my highest score to date, i have since backed off the OC a bit.

    I may not have the latest drivers anymore, i'll have to check that out.
  5. Wow i never expected new drivers to make this much a difference this late in the game.

    This is with Driver 169.44.


    And to the latest 175.16.


    With the new drivers i've set a personal best score, which is better then my previous that was at a higher OC on the CPU and GPU. I guess Nvidia is finally getting around to making the Drivers work right under Vista.

    Looks like i have to update my Sig :)
  6. Not bad.
    As a comparison my sys gets ~12,000

    Q6600 B3 @ 2.7Ghz
    3Gb 800
    8800GTS 320
    P5B-D

    My cpu makes up for what is now a pretty average gfx card.
  7. That's quite a nice score for that setup. I know mine was doing about that, i think about 12,200 ish at stock.

    The slight overclock is pulling its weight :)

    May i ask what your score breakdown is, for comparison.

    My CPU was at ~3700 at 2.6ghz and ~3850 at 2.8ghz. Does your's fall in amongst there?

    Also Vista or XP?
  8. While my overall score is much lower than yours (waiting to upgrade GPU) my CPU score is much higher at a lower clock. Q9450 @ 3.0ghz scored a 4940 CPU score. I thought that 3DMark wasn't multithreaded optimized?
  9. That sounds about right. The Penryn runs faster clock for clock due to the better architecture then the Q6600. I was getting close to 5k for the CPU Score at a 3.45ghz OC. And 3DMark06 is Multi core optimized.

    Also is that under Vista or XP?
  10. xp home 32 bit
  11. Just OC'd to 3.2ghz @ stock volts and scored 5277 for CPU score.
  12. Ah yes, you'd get a bit better score with xp. Not as many processes to run. Even so that's an impressive score.
  13. Anyone tried out the 175.80 beta drivers? I've found the 175.70 betas the best so far, although I didn't try the WHQL 175.16 drivers, only the betas which sucked.
  14. No not yet, i'll look into it.
  15. Looks like the 175.16 Driver is the latest driver for Vista 64bit and the 8 series cards. That's including beta.

    At least so it says on the Nvidia website.
  16. 12557

    CPU 2794
    SM2.0 5895
    HDR/SM3.0 5817
    thats what my E7200 3.04 Ghz and the 8800 GTS G92 does on XP pro =(

    I get stuff from Guru3D, not Nvidia. They always get the stuff before it goes on the Nvidia site. I read why that is once before, but I don't remember now. I ran a test and 175.70 score exactly the same as the WHQL 174.74 drivers, but they perform alot better in crysis so that's more important to me :D
