I got 5900 128MB VIVO for 376USD and i set it's clock 470/920

however I got 3dmark01 score merely 16XXX

with old ti4600 I got 14XXX

isn't it too low for my rig?

since 3dmark01 focuses so much on the cpu, you shouldnt see much of a difference, try some games and see what you think.

you could have gotten a faster radeon9800 pro for the same price or at most $20 more and youd get over 17k marks :eek:

just reformat your PC again , and try better the latest det 44.67 drivers..
sometime viruses/hardware conflicts or background aplications or motherboards BIos settings can decrease too much the performance of your PC. you can get them here .. www.guru3d.com (but probably you will need to disable your firewalls to download there).

I can get 18k with any newer driver. :)

Cheating? On 3DM01? :confused:
I was not aware of any 01 cheats.
