Problem with the 3dmark11 results.

I have done the 3Dmark11 benchmark test, and the result does not satisfy me.
I have this system:
I5 760
GA P55-US3L
2GB CEON 1333 MHZ X2 (4GB)
POWER COLOR ATI RADEON 5850
500GB SATA2 32MB C.G WD
SEACSONIC s12ll-620 620W

It is weird.. =[

i get only P3754 on the 3dmark11 benchmark test... :( help please.

Also i forgot to tell that this message appears in the result:
Graphics driver is not approved.

What shall i do?

  1. The message just means that future mark hasnt reviewed the latest drivers for your card yet. That should go away in a week or so.
    I don't know about the performance though...I'm having a similar issue
  2. I have the same issue way low score and I have an I7 930 @4GHZ .6G of ram 2 5850s in cf.
  3. Why don't those results satisfy you? What is it that makes you think those are too low of scores?

    As far as the drivers not being approved, Futuremark's approved drivers, for AMD at least, are usually 2-3 months behind the current drivers.
  4. So, if i do 3dvantage or 3dmark 06, the results will be true?
  5. As bystander asked, what is it about the results that does not satisfy you?

    When doing a search of similar systems the majority falls into the 3500-3800 points score, so I do not see anything wrong with what you got.
  6. In the page of the result this message is written:
    Your Score is Low Compared to Similar Systems.
    There may be a problem.
    Also when i searched i5 750+ hd 5850 there was there are result of 5k....
  7. The Physic score is the drag. Not sure how this relates to real life gaming as I'm not a gamer. Not sure what the "fix" is to boost the score up to the Norm.

    P3908 (Graphics 4129, physic 3906) Not for system in my config. - For an I5-2500 w/ 16 gigs DDR3-1600 CL7, w/6870 GPU (Note current all at stock).

    Everyone who runs a stock system will get the "Your Score is Low Compared to Similar Systems."

    You do have a good overclock on the CPU, but the GPU, which effects your score the most, may not be overclocked much.

    Those 5K results, what were the clocks on those systems? Were they crossfire systems?

    I really dislike their rating system, because they compare your system to the average system entered into their database. Given that only older drivers are accepted into their database as legitimate scores, about the only systems that score average or higher, are heavily overclocked. My system is no different. I have to take my i7 920 to 4ghz and crossfire 6950's (unlocked) to 910mhz (way over stock) just to get an average score.

    Same here, 4.4ghz on a 2600k and SLi'd OC'd GTX560Ti's is considered 'average'! :lol:
  10. Yea, Just jumped my I5-2500 to 4.2 and score went from P3908 -> P4464, 6870 still at stock, But from what I've read the 6870s do not OC very well and the Autotun does not even show up in the CCC performance tab (Latest ATI CCCC/driver).
  11. Also 3dMark 11 has a bug (feature) that biases the scores in favor of Nvidia systems --- the CPU test which is supposed to run strictly on the CPU for the test allows Nvidia cards that support PHYSX to run the test on the GPU which artificially inflates the score (since the GPU on an ATI system just sits idle during the test) -- so a system with an Nvidia card will always score higher than the same system with an ATI card. SO be sure you are comparing only apples to apples when comparing scores !

    If people are getting over 5000 in 3dmark11 that means the 5850 is highly overclocked. Also the same guy is probably running his 750 at 4.0ghz. I wouldn't worry about it, high 3xxx to low 4xxx is about where you should be with your setup without overclocking.
  13. K, thank you very much all:P

    That is definitely true with 3Dmark Vantage, but I'm not so sure 3Dmark11 shares that problem.

    You are correct -- I was thinking of Vantage (been awhile since I've run them !)
