Low 280 3DMark score on i7?
 
Ok, just built my new i7 system, specs in Sig, and ran 3DMark 06 for first time on my GTX280.

Score = 14444 <------WTF???

The card is not clocked yet, and neither is the system, but I feel thats way too low? My other system, specs in Sig also, gets 13183 on an 8800GTS.

Somethings wrong?

Card is watercooled and running on Vista x64 with 180.48 driver set.

Any ideas peeps? :headexplode:

You sure you uninstalled the drivers properly?

I didn't need to, fresh OS install on new system.

try the GEFORCE 181.00 drivers run some real benchmarks like farcry 2 crysis gta4 to see how big of a boost you have

you should try 3dmark vantage... for 3dmark06 you need to clock that cpu higher probably since its very cpu limited on a gtx 280... also can you post a compare link?

I also just built an i7 system, and 3dmark06 seems to be low. I'm running a 920 @ 3.90 with a 280GTX and I got around 15k. I have vantage, and I got around P8809 or something like that.

Try putting a card that can be used for physix, that's when you vantage score really jumps.

Man my vantage is really low. Can you install physx if you running a single card? My 280 scores are really weak, and I'm running at almost 4gigs on an i7 :thumbdwn:

yea thats definitely too low.... dont bother with the physx card just make sure you have it enabled in the nvidia settings and it will use your current gpu to boost your score a bit... post a compare link so we can see whats wrong with it
