Wrong window 7 score for 4850 Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: May 3, 2010 3:35 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dgmt321 April 30, 2010 5:06:04 AM I used to have a 4670 and it had a 6.7 score in window 7 rating. I just upgraded to the 4850 and now the score is 6.0. It doesn't make any sense. Anybody know the problem?

I would suspect a minor driver issue. You could run 3DMark06 and compare your results to the norm. When ever I change a GPU, I alwas delete the drivers, run a driver Cleaner program, and re-install the Cat software suite (even if it is the same version). I've not had a higher end GPU, memory, GPU give a lower rating than a Lower end counter part. The HDD scores are the only one I've noted discrepencies, ie Mechanical HDD seems to be capped at 5.9/6.0. m 0 l Maziar a c 169 U Graphics card April 30, 2010 3:31:04 PM I remember when i installed catalyst 9.12 on my 4870X2,my score went from 7.1 to 6.9 and as soon as i installed 9.12 hotfix it went to 7.1 again m 0 l RetiredChief a b U Graphics card April 30, 2010 4:09:28 PM I think the Latest cat ver is 10.4 (runing 10.3 w/5670 and 10.2 w/5770) m 0 l Maziar a c 169 U Graphics card April 30, 2010 4:53:45 PM I know,i am just saying that with 9.12 and 9.12 hotfix i got different scores m 0 l beardcombover May 3, 2010 3:35:33 PM XFX 4850 WEI gets a 7.2. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
