EDIT: The 3DMark Scores link I mean and not the pictures. EDIT2: Nevermind I thought 14k was a high score but I researched and it isn't | Report abuse geekapproved Graphics card Master Gaming Expert April 10, 2011 2:23:46 PM Why are you using 3dmark06? This is 2011, try 3dmark11 or 3dmark Vantage. | Report abuse geekapproved Graphics card Master Gaming Expert April 10, 2011 2:28:20 PM It seems a bit low to me, but I have not seen any other 2500K/6970 benchmarks to compare with. I ran Geekbench (lol, never heard of before) I scored 5998 with a i3-2100/5850 all stock clocks and a old 7200rpm hdd. 2nd run scored 6061. | Report abuse hitech126 April 10, 2011 6:07:29 PM Oh I didn't realize I was using an outdated version. 3D Mark 11 Score The 3D Mark 11 scores seem to be quite a bit higher, but that still doesn't explain the low Geekbench score. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Low performance on new Gaming build> Related ressources: ForumNew gaming build not up to par.
