View Full Version : large difference between 9x.xx and 1xx.xxx 3dmark06 scores?

After using the newest driver available for a while on my 7800gs I decided to go back to the famous 93.81 set a lot of people claim is the best for non 8 series cards. I haven't tried many games yet but I did run 3dmark06 a few times and have found my score has tremendously dropped. Were the 9x.xx series drivers that much slower in this benchmark? I thought if anything they would be faster. The IQ wasn't that great either. With my clocks set to 460/1.35 with the newest driver my score is about 60 points higher than with my clocks set to 460/1.45 using 93.81. Doesn't make any sense to me but it is hard finding other people scores to compare with sets that old.
