Default Re: 3DMark Vantage Benchmark Results Thread

Overclocking the GX2 will give you better results than overclocking the CPU. This benchmark is nothing like 06 at all. GPU power rules this one. From what I have read going from 4.5 to 5.5 using a QX9650 will only net you a couple of hundred extra points.

Oh it's 5900... 8500 CPU and like 5800 gpu or something. 8800GTS g92.

There's something wrong with my 8700m GT on my XPS m1730 notebook it only gets 990 GPU and 6638 CPU. When I enable SLI it gets worse. F#$%ing dell.

Hotfix 1.0.1 released
Quote:
Changes:

1. Off-line score viewing is now available in the Advanced Edition.

2. Score save / submit saved options are now available in the Advanced
Edition.

3. Ad banners have been removed from all editions.

4. Added a "SEND ERROR" button to error messages; clicking this will
send detailed error information to Futuremark for better bug tracking
and fixing. No personally identifiable information will be sent or
stored.


Fixes:

1. An issue preventing valid serial key entry in some cases has been
fixed.

2. An issue causing "boost::filesystem::create_directory" error message
after registration has been fixed.

3. Added a check and error message for hardware that is not DX10
capable.

4. Improved detection of supported resolutions so that CPU test minimum
requirement (1280x1024) is now taken into account correctly.

5. Fixed an issue where pressin the ESC key during CPU test loading
screen, the user would be taken to a score view with score -1.

6. The entire 3DMark Vantage application is now elevated to
Administrator rights, rather than only the SystemInfo component. This
will ensure more robust SystemInfo and benchmark functionality, and
fixes the "pop-behind" elevation dialog.

7. Fixed an issue that sometimes caused "WM_QUIT" error messages.

8. Post-processing scale is now displayed correctly in the UI for the
Extreme Preset.

9. Fixed an issue that could cause resolution switches at test runtime.
Sorry if it was posted before
