4890CF not working properly?

Hey all I have recently added another 4890 into my rig to enjoy CF and I am not noticing much performance improvement. Here are my cpu/gpu specs first
Core i5 750 @ 2.6ghz
XFX 4890 CF
I think it wont matter but also running Corsair 750W PS which is more then enough for this.

I see alot of people getting around 22k in 3DMARK06 with rigs about the same as mine and I am getting these scores which seem very low to me. Also in the Crysis benchmark I am avg about 30fps which seems low as well. Playing at 1920x1080.

These 3DMark06 benchies were done at normal settings 1280x1024-
4890CF
3DMark Score 18263
SM 2.0 Score 6973
SM 3.0 Score 9688
CPU Score 4304

4890x1
3DMark Score 15836
SM 2.0 Score 6301
SM 3.0 Score 7499
CPU Score 4324


I have CrossfireX enable in CCC and both bridges are connected just incase. And I have GPUZ open and it says 2 GPU's Enabled. I am running the most current drivers and have also benched with the previous set of drivers. Cant remember which ones 9.x (Using 9.12 now). Any ideas why my cards are underperforming?

Thanks,
-Mike

  5. 3d mark 06 is meaningless now, it just doesn't work properly with newer tech.

    Run 3d mark vantage, at least you'll see a difference in scores then.
