My EVGA GeForce GTX 570 doesn't seem to be performing right. I put a new system together with an i7-950, CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB DDR3 1600 and ASUS Sabertooth X58 motherboard. Running 3DMark 05 I am getting LOWER scores than my old E8400 with Geforce 8800GT video card. 3DMark 05 score is 26435. I used the Nvidia drivers v266.58 right from the Nvidia website. Any ideas why my scores are so low? Other benchmarks like 3DMark 06 and Aquamark 3 yield similar poor numbers.
That's because 3dmark 05 is garbage. Download 3dmark 11
I downloaded and ran 3DMark 11 and got a score of X1702. Can you tell if that's a normal score for a GTX570? So far I still think the performance is NOT what it should be I bought pretty high end parts. Here is a list:
These parts should give better numbers than I'm seeing, shouldn't they? I run Windows 7 64 bit and loaded all the newest drivers when I did the installation. Perhaps I missed something somewhere. I don't get error messages, just low benchmark scores.
