low 3dmark vantage score, thoughts? Tags: Graphics Cards Vantage Windows Vista Radeon Graphics Last response: September 23, 2008 6:28 PM in Graphics & Displays Share callmecheez September 23, 2008 6:11:02 PM Hi all, Just ran 3dmark vantage on my new radeon 4850; and I got a score of P4931 This seems pretty low. Is this because the rest of the system is slowing it down? If so, am I better off selling the gfx card and waiting to upgrade the whole system to make it worthwhile? My spec: OS: Vista Ultimate CPU: AMD Opteron 165 @ 1.80 ghz RAM: 2.5gig More about : low 3dmark vantage score thoughts alex_oneill2006 September 23, 2008 6:14:30 PM Dide i personally think its your cpu. Its a MAJOR factor. and you could always do with a lil bit more ram! But im not that hardcore about synthetic benchmarks... Just go out and game. if you like it then be with it!
