3dMark Scores Low on Quad 7970?

Hi Guys I am new to SLI setups, and just got my quad 7970 setup going. I ran 3dMark Advanced edition on performance level and got this:

SCORE
P15144 3DMarks
GRAPHICS SCORE
19382
PHYSICS SCORE
10270
COMBINED SCORE
7857

I am running a Processor
Intel Core i7-3770K Processor

With 16 gigs of ram at 2400 speed

Also all of my videocards are running at stock speeds of:

# of cards4SLI / CrossFire On Memory3968 MBCore clock501 MHzMemory clock1375 MHz
==================================================================================

It just seems like quad 7970s even not overclocked should be giving higher scores than 19382 for Graphics shouldent they?


I will love any help or tips to dial this system in :)

Thanks guys

  1. Quad GPU setup isn't exactly efficient. You are already losing 60-80% of the potential performance by adding a third card, adding a fourth card will be way less efficient. Assume a regular HD7970 is almost P8000 graphics score, crossfire would bring it to P15500, and add the inefficiencies, it would total up to P19500 approximately.
