    Well 100 points is about 1 fps less ...... benchmarks are not an exact science.

    And did you format and do a clean install after you changed vid cards? I always found it is the bestway to go.

    Benchmarked with what?

    Were both cards run on the exact same system with the exact same drivers?

    If it was 3dmark then 100 is within normal variations.

    If you want the highest score reboot, shutdown all processes not essential, disconnect from the net and run the benchmark. Do this 2 or three times.

    It depends on the clock speed n other stuff, not just the 8x

    Gotta look at drivers, overclocking, tweakers, memory bandwidth, per pipeline etc and lotsa tehnical garbo - why don't you compare your card with others in the Futuremark? Probably a more appropriate forum.
