Could anyone tell me what I should be getting for a 3D Mark score on the system listed below?
I think I get about 2995 or so. It's an MX, I wouldn't expect much...
So 4012 isn't a bad score??
Not at all, is it overclocked? Cause I think that's where they top out at!
nope, it's right out of the box. Did a Video Card BIOS update, and installed the new Dets.
I'd say you got a good card then. If you overclock it, you may get a better score...
I'm thinking of overclocking it, I just need to find that app that does it
Enable coolbits in the registry at this link
and SLOWLY inch that slider up. Beware though, MXs have passive heatinks...you may not get much out of it, and may ruin you card...
NVmax is a great program..I'd use it over coolbits....(forgot about it)
Speaking of 3dmarks, I'm kinda disappointed in mine. I got a 4890
I know my CPU/mobo is a bit outdated now but I think it should be a bit higher; like maybe in the mid to high 5000's. I stopped all non-essential processes running before the test too. Maybe some of it is that I'm using Omega drivers and also I've installed, uninstalled, re-installed drivers and programs a ton of times.
Oh well. At least the games I have look ok.
why don't u use Dets?
Goatman: I heard the Omegas were better quality, but I have yet to see it really.
Catch: I will be formatting, but only when I upgrade my system (when the Hammer comes out providing it lives up to its hype and if it ever gets here). I have too many apps and adjustments to make formatting a "regular" thing.
I may uninstall the Omega drivers and try the newer Dets again, maybe that'll help.
I just downloaded and installed the newer nvidia drivers (from visiontek) and that REALLY helped my score: 8657!
I think I can be happy with that
Oh, in case anyone needs proof:
