3DmarkVantage SCORES AND QUESTIONS Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Graphics Last response: January 20, 2010 6:50 PM in Graphics & Displays Share moopato January 20, 2010 12:35:35 AM Hey guys, I know this is mainly for GPU questions, but this one has alot to do with CPU aswell as the GPU together. So I ran the 3dmark06 and vantage benchmark test, and I was somewhat disapointed with the scores. It seems like I scored a bit lower than what I should have. Here are the links to my scores: Vantage http://service.futuremark.com/home.action;jsessionid=83D899FFA7B0E7C14F155B952938BE0B?resultId=1806954&resultType=19 Mark06 Lost the link, But my score was 16,350 points. Here are my system specs: Manufacturer AMD Family AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor Architecture 64-bit Internal Clock 3.4 GHz Internal Clock Maximum 3.4 GHz External Clock 200.0 MHz Socket Designation Socket M2 Type Upgrade ZIF Socket MultiCore 4 Processor Cores HyperThreadingTechnology N/A My GPU is a xfx radeon 4870 512mb, OC at 780/1090.

I have a 4770 i5 750 system and can score between 15000 and 18000. The high # is o/c both. m 0 l moopato January 20, 2010 1:10:27 AM Some guy with a triple core AMD OC'ed at 3.4ghz said his 3dmark06 score was about 16,000. How is that posible? He had same gpu aswell. m 0 l Related resources Post your 3DmarkVantage Scores! - Forum 3DMarkVantage Score - Forum 3dmarkvantage, what score is good?

If it only utilizes 1-3 cores then you'd score the same. m 0 l bystander a c 217 U Graphics card January 20, 2010 2:03:15 AM Look at this link, which is using vantage: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cpu-cores-performan... Notice how little difference the multiple cores make? m 0 l moopato January 20, 2010 6:50:46 PM i think you are right that 3dmark06 doesnt use as many cores. He scored nearly a thousand lower on 3dmark vantage, the newer one. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SSD Scores and questions plz respond!! TY!
