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:




Lost the link, But my score was 16,350 points.

Here are my system specs:

  1. Those scores seem OK, 06 goes up with o/c. I have a 4770 i5 750 system and can score between 15000 and 18000. The high # is o/c both.
  2. 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.
  3. 3dmark06 may not take advantage of the multiple cores. If it only utilizes 1-3 cores then you'd score the same.
  4. Look at this link, which is using vantage: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cpu-cores-performance,2373-4.html

    Notice how little difference the multiple cores make?
  5. i think you are right that 3dmark06 doesnt use as many cores. He scored nearly a thousand lower on 3dmark vantage, the newer one.
