Problems with V9900/TD or FX5800
Hi, Having poor results in 3dMark 2005 when benchmarking the following system (a friend of mines!)

ASUS K8V SE Deluxe
1GB Kingmax DDR-400 (2x512MB Chips)
AMD 64 3200+
ASUS V9900/TD - FX5800+

3D Mark 2005 for this machine clocks only approx 800, whereas on my system which is more or less identical excepting the ATI 9500 Pro in the place of the V9900, I get around 1600.

Any ideas?? changed graphic cards over and scores are reversed...

V9900 is a much newer and more expensive card to my understanding, is this correct?

Both systems running 66.93 drivers...

Well all that I know is that the FX 5800 sucks with DirectX9, maby you should try the lates beta driver from the other form.

Well, after browsing the ORB it would appear that 1600+ 3DM05 score with a 9500Pro would put you around #19 in the world, so that is quite an accomplishment. Most top 20 ORBers were using some sort of modified drivers, extreme overclocking, and likely had cards that would 'soft-mod' to 9700 (I'm guessing).
Having said that, 800 points is about right for a 'vanilla' 5800 at stock speeds. The FX line does not fare well in 3DM05 at all, however the 5800 is a more robust card for gaming than a 9500. In order to get a higher score, you'll need to overclock the card, but don't expect too much- I have a 5800Ultra in one of my machines that barely gets over 900 points at default clockspeeds...
