ATI Radeon HD 5770 and 3DMark06.


I ran the free test with the standard settings and received a score of 13,448 3DMark06. When I attempted to search for a similar system so that I could compare scores I was disappointed. There was no drop down option for my processor. My detailed score and settings during the test as well as my system specs are below. Thanks for any input u may have : )

3DMark Score 13448 3DMarks
SM 2.0 Score 5458
SM 3.0 Score 6554
CPU Score 3381
Resolution 1280 x 1024
AA: none.
Filtering: optimal
HLSL VS: 3 0
HLSL PS: 3 0

My system is as follows.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3

CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core.

  1. Best answer
    Don't too rely on benchmark softwares, every person could get different score even with the same exact specs...

    Try some games? I'm sure you'll get pretty decent setting with your specs. :)
  2. Hello
    I agree with wa1, its always the best to test games in order to check your system's performance,so try some games(both CPU and GPU limited ones to check both your CPU and GPU's performance)
  3. Yes, I agree, and that looks about right considering you are using an Athlon II processor. I score almost 17000 with my ridiculously overclocked 5750 and an i3 530 at 4.0. Is everything at stock speeds?
  4. Thanks for the replies.

    Everything is still at stock speed. I have not attempted to overclock anything.

    As far as game testing, sounds like good advice. Which program do you guys use to monitor FPS in-game? Or do you just use the games console commands to show fps onscreen?

    Also, in regard to the game testing, it seems like the best indicator of pc performance as it is what I will be using the PC for, however, it is all so variable.
    I have a monitor with a native res of 1920 x 1080. So, if I use the full resolution I am limited on the graphics settings. *shrug*

    In about 2 years I will upgrade the GPU and CPU and add some memory and then all will be well.
  5. 3DMark06 is soooo unbelieveably CPU intensive, What matters is gaming.

    Use FRAPs to monitor your in game FPS its free!
  6. Personally I use MSI Afterburner's On Screen Display. It will display a bunch of different things such as FPS, temps, clock and memory speeds, gpu load, fan speed, etc.
  7. Okay, thanks. I will check those programs out.

    As far as in-game-testing, is there an FPS reference somewhere for different systems and what they should be achieving?
  8. I was browsing and discovered that my system is very similar to the June $550 system. I will use those benchmarks as comparison.

    Also, if a moderator happens to read this, perhaps compiling the fps from the various benchmarks you have run into a spreadsheet similar to the graphics card hierarchy spreadsheet would be a good idea.
    It would probably decease the number of threads asking if a score is good or if a certain FPS is reasonable.

    As someone pointed out, in-game performance is a much better test of ones system as opposed to some benchmark program.
