Just ran a 3dmark11 basic edition benchmark (the free software)
I go a score of:
Now 3Dmark didn't recognize my GPU and my CPU. it gave me a message after the test saying: processor not recognized, gpu not recognized, gpu driver not approved.
This is my build, just made it yesterday:
1) GPU: Asus Nvidia Geforce 670GTX DC2T
2) CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k
3) Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77
4) Case: Corsair CC600TWM-WHT Graphite Special Edition
5) PSU: Corsair CMPSU-750AXEU Gold AX850 Modular
6) RAM: 2X8GB G.Skill Ripjaw-X DDR3 1600Mhz
7) CPU cooler: Noctua NH-D14
8)SSD: Crucial Solid Series 256GB CT256M4SSD2 SSD
A) why doesn't the 3dmark11 recognize my hardware and software?
B) is my score ok for this build?
C) how can I compare my score to others on 3dmark?
EDIT: I just made a random comparing with a processor like mine, the other guy got 10 000 more than my score and his system isn't that different! what the hell!?
Is something wrong with my build?
Should I try a different benchmark?
Not sure, Batman felt a little heavy, it got fps cap for some reason on 62, but during fights or quick movement fps can go to 55.. Alan wake at max runs well, over 60 but not 120 fps or something, it can drop below 60 at certain points.
I am afriad my CPU or GPU or something is not working right..
Best thing to do is run some good benchmark that you can compare with other, I thought 3dmark11 will work, but for some reason it didn't recognized anything, and for some reason (although it appeared to work nicely) the results were bad..
Is there a way to test each part maybe? or a better benchmark?
