    driver 3.4 catylsit
    cpu xp1800@1900
    mem 512sdram cas3 7.5ns 141mhz
    mobo jetway v266b
    hdd seagate baracuda v 80gb
    vid card powercolor 9700 non-pro modded to pro
    core 270@360
    mem 270@288 cant go higher and be stable :(

    3dmark03 313 = 4776
    after patching to 330 version i got 4605 score (twice)
    went back to 313 version got 4776 again

    mother nature test slowed down from 95fps in begging to 60 on 330 version

    i thought the patch had something to do with nvidia not ati :)

    ati has a 1.9% expected drop in score from tests done by futuremark.. almost all of it stemming from around an 8% odd drop in game test 4 (nature)

    the score SHOULD drop because either there is a valid bug in game test 4 or ati is running application specific coding in catalyst 3.4 version...

    the overall 1.9% score variance lies within futuremarks stated 3% variance unlike nvidia's 24% odd variance overall and over 50% variance in a couple of tests... ati's variance == around 2-2.5 fps in gt4...

    you score WILL drop... it is expected...

    when you update to ver. 3.2 a message will appear saying that with DX9 you get higher score than DX9a

    It's only a silly benchmark. It's such a drag all the time, effort, and resources that companies put into getting good benchmark scores, instead of real world performance.
