Terrible 3DMark 2005 score... What's wrong?
 
My system can push almost 11000 in 3DMark 03, but I can only get 3755 in 3DMark 05. I've heard that the 6800 GT should score somewhere around 4500!!! I don't think there's anything wrong with my system. I know I have a low-end Athlon 64, but I didn't think it would be THIS BAD!!!! :lame:

I have to remember that it's only a benchmark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a combination of the 61.77 (old ass driver) and stock clocks on the GT. With the 66.70 and 400/1100 I can score over 5000 with the same CPU. Though it doesnt mean there cant be something else wrong in your setup.

I thought it might be a driver problem. Nvidia will probably release a new driver set soon that will improve the performance of the 6800s. Until then, I think I'll drop by Guru3d.

Enable optimizations..will boost your scores up

Nvidia is feeling the heat. I hope they come out with a driver rivaling the ATI "hotfix" hat-trick, that gives the Ultra ~800 points more.

Make sure you also disable Cool 'N Quiet as well as I've heard it can play havoc with this most recent round of stress tests.

Just tossing this out there, I'm sure you probably already adhere to this testing suggestions as they're not new news...but FWIW here they are:
  • Restart the computer before running the benchmark and after making any driver/hardware changes.
  • Disable any networking connections and file sharing. Network activity may affect the tested system and its performance.
  • Close and disable any open applications and background programs, like automatic disk defragmentation.
  • Repeat each test at least three times. When using the 3DMark test repeat functionality, each test is repeated the set amount of times and the given result is the average of the repetitions. This will help to ensure that the effect that any anomalous result has on the final result is kept to a minimum.
  • Hardware comparisons should only be done with systems tested under the same settings (i.e. resolution, texture filtering mode, etc).
  • Do not attempt to initiate any other system activity while 3DMark05 is benchmarking.

We have pretty much the same systems.....I scored alittle over 4500....difference is I used the 66.70 drivers. Give those a try and you'll see your scores improve. Also, remember to restart your system and then close out any un-needed processes before you test. And yes, it's only a benchmark..dont get all worked up, as long as your games run great, dont worry yourself. =)

i'm using a 6800GT too. When i was using the 61.77 driver my rig scored 3905 but when i updated the driver to 66.70 it scored 4659. so try updating the driver. it should help
