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?

Don't pay attention to those wacky scores, I have an old 7,200rpm drive that scores higher than my WD Black 1Tb. It's not accurate at all, use Sandra or equivalent to benchmark your system =)

Always use benchmarks to check your system's performance

Agreed just worry about your actual real world performance.

While I agree that WEI is NOT a very good bench mark, I see no reason that if you upgrade a GPU - the score would decrease. 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.

I think the Latest cat ver is 10.4 (runing 10.3 w/5670 and 10.2 w/5770)
