Here is the new rig i worked on:

Barton 2500 at 2155mhz (10x215)
Geil 1gb pc 3500 at 215mhz
Geforce Ti 4600 at 320/700
segate 80gb sata with 8.5 seek

My highest score is 9713 with this and thought I should be getting about 12000 or so. Using the 2001se benchmark. Is this right?

erm...with a radeon 9500 in an overclocked celeron 1.2@ 1.6 i get 7800, if that helps. I think your score is pretty low.

That actually sounds similar to what my brother had gotten with his system. He had:

Athlon XP 2100+
Asus mobo (unknown model)
GeForce 4 TI 4600
Maxtor 7200 rpm hd's
Soundblaster live 5.1
512 MB PC 2100 ram

and he was getting 9500's in his tests...

It appears that the bottleneck is the video card. I haven't heard of many people breach the 10k mark with a GF4 4600.

Seems low, are your sure that all the settings (both in your control panel and in 3Dmrk2001se) are set at default or performance?? I get 13100 with:

Pentium 4 2.66B
1024MB PC1066 RDRAM
Iwill P4R533-N
Ti4400 (300,600 [essentially a 4600 with bad memory])
Maxtor 7200RPM 80GB 2MB cache
Omega 45.23


You should be getting more than 13000, if you ask me (better graphics card, better CPU, but worse memory bandwidth [not THAT big of a deal in 3Dmrk2001se] should get a better score than mine, I believe). Just make sure all the settings are at default, especially AA and AF.

That's really low for your rig.

I have a Tbred at 2.1 Ghz, PC150 SDRAM, a KT133A mobo and Radeon 8500 (@300/650) and I score <A HREF="http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=6367699" target="_new">9127</A>.

You should be beating me by 40%-50%.

Did you load the chipset drivers for your motherboard?

By the way, what is your motherboard?

Well the 9500 is much better than the ti4600

Well I already did install those drivers but I did entertain the thought by reinstalling them. BAM!! Got 5000 point more to my score with at 14661 score. I have had some software corruption in the past when I was playin with the timings on my ram and may have hosed them a bit. I am much pleased with the score and my AGP card is not OCed either. That damned Forceware driver doesnt like this card being oced.

I was wrong. You scored 61% higher than I. (LOL)

Glad you got it working. Enjoy!

Sounds like you were running the benches with AA or other "eye-candy" enabled. Reinstalling the drivers would reset to defaults and allow the higher scores. If you had driver corruption that would cause a 60% performance drop, you'd know it by more than a benchmark score.

Where there's a will, there's a way-even when it comes to screwing up.

You should get at least 12000 as you say. Some of the other guys made good points on your drivers and having to many things set to best graphics. You could go in and set things to fastest performance and since you are using the Ti4600 card you can now go to the 35.30 drivers they now have at the web site if you are using XP.

Another thing you can do to really improve frame rates is in the open GL area of the control panel for the card set the Vertical sync: to ( Off by default )
If you download the stock driver set from Nvidia the 35.03 version you will see that you can not adjust clock frequencies later because there is no option for them.
What you can do is go into the Registry Start/Run/Regedit then go into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and then select SOFTWARE then select Nvidia Corporation.
Under that heading you will see a folder called GLOBAL open the plus sign you will see a folder called NVTweak.

Highlight that folder don't open the plus sign, now at the top of the Registry Editor Select the Edit option and then NEW then DWORD Value.

Name the NEW DWORD ( Coolbits ) then right click on the new folder called Coolbits and give it a value of 3 Hex then close up your registry.

What this will do is 2 things, first off you will get a new Control Panel option under Direct 3D called More Direct 3D and in here you will see a Vertical sync Option, set it to Auto Select and set the number value for frames ahead to 12. The default is 3.
Now if you look closely at your options on the left of the control panel for the card you will now see a Clock Frequency option available to set the MHz of the card.

This should help you get those numbers up to at least over 10000.

Well it turned out to be software corruption, was playin with my ram timings last week and may have hosed my system32 folder as usual. I reintall the mobo drivers and not getting 14661 in benchmark..
