OK, so with my rig I was getting about 7900-7950 marks in 3DM06, and the CPU scored a little under 2000 (about 1950) at 2.65GHz (graphics card at stock). I just upped the core and mem on the 7950GX2 to 590/780 and scored 9011 (http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=448883). This isn't spectacular for an OCed 7900/7950GX2, but check out the CPU score. Bearing in mind that I didn't change the CPU speed, isn't it odd that my CPU score has gone up to 2482? Having looked at the ORB, most X2 CPUs are scoring in the region of 2000.

What do you think? Is this an error in 3DM2K6? I just re-ran the test and got a score of 9005 with a similar CPU score. On reducing my 7900GX2 clocks to stock, by score drops to 7850-odd, with a CPU score below 2000. Hence, in my system GPU clocks appear to affect CPU scores. Any ideas why this should be?

If this is a registered version of 3DMark06, you can email Futuremark and ask them. I've never seen this happen. One thing though. On Win x64 systems, Futuremark doesn't guaranty the benchmark results of their software, but since you didn't mention this, I assume you are running 3DMark06 on a 32 bit OS.

Thanks. It's the free version of 3DM06, and the OS is WinXP 32bit. My sig doesn't sem to be showing up for some reason.
