Barton in 3dmark2001SE

I recently benchmarked my new build using 3dmark 2001 SE build 330, and I was suprised to see my processor register as an AMD Duron @ 2.07 ghz. (its actually an AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton @ 2.08 ghz) This leads me to believe that I have something set up wrong, or something wrong in bios. This is only my first build, so I would appreciate some help in identifying whats wrong. Thanks!
BTW, the FSB is set to 133 like it should be.. thats not the problem. Under Windows System Properties, it says: AMD Athlon XP 2800+ @ 2.08 ghz, which I believe is right.

  1. It might not have anything to do with your settings but the program (3DMark) itself. It simply cannot recognize your CPU's model correctly.

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
  2. The program (3DMark 2001SE) is evil here.

  3. The bartons are all listed as Durons, since they haven't updated their CPU database yet. Same goes with mine. Frankly, i think it sucks. At 1024x768x32, I'm getting a score of at most 5800. WTF is going on with my setup? I mean, my GF3 Ti500 is no lightweight, I run GTA3 at about 30 fps at 1024x768x32 with the draw distance maxed, and not a stutter to be seen. Lots of people can't even manage this with 4600's. So, what the hell is up with that?!? You can see what I'm running below, and it's a pretty good setup. Any ideas?

  4. Umm...I don't really have any ideas other than to say that you definitely should be at least 2500 points higher with your setup. I have the same graphics card as you (a geForce 3 Ti500,) with a 2000+ on DDR266, and I manage 7500 without trying. I can hit over 8000 if I overclock the card and turn the all the quality settings way down.

    This may be a dumb question, but are you sure FSAA and all that crap is off?

    I wonder if 3DMark2001SE is failing to account for something because it considers the processor to be a Duron?

  5. hi Ameba, this might be your problem..... you said your FSb is set at 133 like it should be, but it is actaully supposed to be 166. I have the barton 2500 with a radeon 9700 pro and my system acheives 16500 in 3d mark 2001 se. That application is quite dependand on cpu power... im sure that is limiting you.

  6. I was thinking it was the graphics settings I was running the test at, because at 1024x768x32, I got 5800, and at 800x600x32, I got 8800, and I would assume at 640x480x16, if these trends continue, I would get 15,000. This all seems kind of bunk, and as a result I will never ever trust the results of benchmarking software ever.

  7. umheinto turn off your vertical sync. your system should score better then mine for sure due to your overclock. Something is wrong there.

  8. I did that, and now I got 10300 (or so, at work now not at home). That certainly did it. Any more tweaks I could do to get a few more points? I want to see if I can get 11,000, before I upgrade to a 9700 Pro (hoping for 18,000 or more with that one, 20k would be awesome!)

    I would have to agree with this as PCMark2002 calls my Barton a Duron as well.

  10. try upping your agp / pci frequencies a hair... that will help. overclocking your vid card is a big help

  11. you could also visit my <A HREF="http://www3.sympatico.ca/rdykens" target="_new">Webpage</A> i have a large amount of computer and performance tweaks listed there.

  12. Bartons runs @ 166MHz FSB (333MHz DDR) like Trixta said
