View Full Version : Do my 3Dmark06 scores seem low?

From the scores I have seen online my scores seem a bit low, especially the SM 2.0, and considering my overclock. I'm not sure what the deal is. What do you think?

You are CPU bottlenecked. 3D Mark now takes advanatge of multiple processor cores and this is why it's lower then dual and quad cores.

It's the single core processor. The X2's would bump it up even more. I have an X2 4800 CPU, same MB as you, and with an OC of 630/1900 I scored just under 9400 with 3DMark06. Others are getting similar results. Also, the MB will bottleneck if you run 8800GTX SLI on it. Ask OWA about that issue.

iam just over the 8100 mark with a athlon 64 4000+ single core being my choke point. so your about right

So the processor speed affects the SM2.0 score?

Yeah as the the data is fed on mutliple cores which frees this up so the video card can do more and also the video card drives are also mutli threaded too.

Yep...I'm getting 9xxx on 06 (I'm not at home so not sure of exact, but it was over 9000). I'm going to bump up my Core 2 (maybe tonight) to 3 Ghz or more and see if I can break 10k...

Like above guy said You CPU score is holding you Back, I am running SLI setup and I feel like my Core 2 Duo E6800 is hold my scores back.

It's definitely your processor. When I had my single core AMD 4000+ with a 8800GTX I was getting 6500 in 3dmark 06. Now with an e6600 overclocked to 3ghz I'm getting over 10,000 in 3dmark06. The processor makes a huge difference.

e6600 at 3.2 & 8800gts at 620/1800 just break 10,000. (FYI)

this is what we get for complaining about being gpu limited for so long. (nana2)

Dont need much of a bump to break 10k with a core 2.

My E6600 stock and the EVGA stock got me 9923 on 3dmark06. I bumped the cpu about 300 Mhz, leaving the GPU stock and got well over 10k.

i have the same setup like you and i score the same like you all stock ^^

OK, just bumped my Proc to 2.93 (no voltage increase or any other mod except to bump the FSB to 325.) I got 10430 in 3DMark 06 (nearly a 1000 point increase over my stock 2.4 score!!!) I might be looking at H20 soon :)

You should be able to easily get to 3.2 with an efficient air cooling setup.
