View Full Version : are 163.69 and .71 slower

I running dual 8600gt oc 600/760. I saw increases in my 3dmark06 scores with each new driver up to 163.67(8690 3dmark06). But with 163.69 and .71 at the same oc 600/760 with rivatuner 2.05 I barely get 8100. I know it has to do the shader but that a big difference. Am I doing something wrong?

I do believe the 69īs getting low score, see my specs is the sig.

I got 9889 3Dmark 06 score with OC. 600/920 on 8800GTS and Cpu with 3600Mhz. I should pretty easily get 10k.

I found the problem., I never had a issue with rivatuner ,but it was rivatuner 2.o5 giving me a hard time. The other day I was playing around with shader slider on 2.05 (forceware 163.67) I dropped it by 5 .Then ran 3dmark06 to test. BSOD then a reboot. When back to rivatuner 2.05 to start over. But now I can't overclock at all. No matter if it is set to 540/700 or 600/760 it scores the same in 3dmark06 . Between 8000-8100. same as I got with 163.69 and .71 with rivatuner 2.05. I uninstalled 2.05, reinstalled it twice ,nothing. I installed version 2.03 and now everything is back to normal. Now running 163.71 at 605/760 with a 3dmark06 score of 8695.
