thats about all that is relevant. I built this system myself about 2 months ago. At first I didnt doubt myself of the performance because it was running like 10x better than my old comp but now im starting to get suspicious.
At the default setting my 3D Mark score is 7128 3D Marks... this is VERY slow for my configuration and im starting to wonder if my Graphics card is defective. I should be getting around 9500-10000 points with this system. Here are in more detail my 3D Mark score:
Game 1 Car Chase - Low Detail 105.3 FPS
Game 1 Car Chase - High Detail 38.8 FPS
Game 2 Dragothic - Low Detail 124.5 FPS
Game 2 Dragothic - High Detail 74.0 FPS
Game 3 Lobby - Low Detail 94.7 FPS
Game 3 Lobby - High Detail 47.4 FPS
Game 4 Nature 36.1 FPS
Fill Rate (Single-Texturing) 927.5 MTexels/s
Fill Rate (Multi-Texturing) 2080.4 MTexels/s
High Polygon Count (1 light) 40.1 MTriangels/s
High Polygon Count (8 lights) 9.4 MTriangels/s
What version of the drivers do you have? Also did you run the test on default? Oh yeah one more thing. A lot of background running programs also really cuts down on performance. Run the test after a fresh restart.
I partially fixed it now... turns out I was running it in Direct X Debug since I use DX for programming... partially fixed because its still about 500 points under but its a huge difference... morrowind still isnt as fast as I wish it was though
Uh..... what's with all this bad performing stuff. Have any of you tried to run a different benchmark perhaps? I was gonna build a new comp by myself but just reading these posts here makes me wanna second guess myself... The same thing, do you have many programs running the background?
I got no apps running in the Background... only Explorer.exe so my benchmarks are perfectly accurate. Maybe my card got screwd or something cuz im only getting 9000 and I should be getting 9500 but its way better than my last score... make sure you dont have DirectX Debug installed cuz thats slow slow slow...
Here is a link to some of my scores........check the "My Rig" icon to see what hardware I was using to get these scores. I will be posting with the New drivers.......big increase for me ! 1000 + points.
