Here is something that I have found with the result browser:

//////////////////////////////////

Score: 3761 Teste1.5 - PIII-550/616MHz - FSB112MHz -FX 5200 / ...

////////////////////////////////////

Score: 3746 MSI GeForce FX 5200 TDR128 2

User: madclo@hotmail.com
Res: 1024x768 32bit
OS: Microsoft Windows XP

CPU: Intel Pentium III 602 MHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200

It seems like the CPU is not so limited...

For the second example, take a look at the following scores:


Fill Rate (Single-Texturing)
(MTexels/s)

my system: 249.2
the other system: 584.2


Fill Rate (Multi-Texturing)
(MTexels/s)

my system: 652.0
the other system: 709.6

Even the core seems to be limited:

Vertex Shader
(FPS)

my system: 33.1
the other system: 45.3


Pixel Shader
(FPS)

my system: 39.7
the other system: 77.5

remember that the other system is a PIII 600 MHz, with a MSI GeForceFX 5200.

The other system had an overclocked FSB..

Be sure to check your drivers...

Hmm, that does seem VERY off. Your fillrate is nowhere near what it should be at, and your 3d mark scores are low as well. At the very least it should be as fast as a TI200 (even with a 600mhz CPU). As AAPO said, you may have a card with 64 bit memory, which would basicly cut the performence in half. The shaders also seem much slower then they should be. Unfortunatly, there are a lot of really, really crappy videocard manufacturers out there, and you may simply have gotten one of the cheapy models with 64 bit memory. I remember how I got an "Apollo" GF2MX, and it's performence was only 10% faster then my Voodoo 3 (and on benchmarks it was supposed to get at least double that). Though an Asus card should be a good brand....where did you get the card from?

Just thought is your card running in AGP or in PCI mode like mine did when I first installed it.

I also get higher 3D marks with the 44.03 drivers and the Asus enhanced drivers on the Driver CD that comes with the card than the new 50xx drivers

Looking at your benchmark results and reading this it certainly seems that you have a 64 bit card. Where did you find the information your card should be 128 bit? It's very suspicious that I could find almost no information about the V9520 memory bus. Just the link above presenting a table in the bottom of the page claiming that all 128MB V9520magic cards come with 64 bit bus.

It's a very irritating policy to hide product information from consumers, IMO.

EDIT: Oops, wrong link above, sorry! I meant this
webpage instead. In the bottom of the review is a table claiming the card has 64-bit memory bus. Doesn't seem too reliable, but it was all I found...

Thank you, guys. You have been helpfull.

I'll try to take my card back to my seller. Hopefully I'll get a new one, even I doubt it seriously.

Ciao !

That is very strange, the fill rate should have almost nothing to do with the system and all to do with the video card. You don't happen to be running a 'debug' version of DirectX on one system do you? When I moved my Geforce3 from a faster system to slower one, the overall score halved, but the fillrate and vertex rate scores were identical. When I accidently left the drivers in debug mode, all scores were 1/2 to 3/4 what they would otherwise be.

Here we go http://www.asus.com/products/vga/v9520m/overview.htm
This is an overview of the Asus 9520 FX Video cards.It does say 128 bit and 400mhz memory. Facts are the memory doesn't go that high as it is 6nanoseconds memory chips that would make the memory 333mhz not 400.
But in all the adds they say 400 mem and 128bit thats why I bought one and I'm pissed aswell

I'm gonna assume you are on a tight budget, but you need an NVidia card for your functions? You might wanna consider a GF4TI instead, they don't have DX9 but they will kick the crap out of FX5200 and FX5600 cards in nearly every application and game. GF4TI's can be had for around $100us these days too. Just a suggestion...

In my opinion, the lowest FX card worth purchasing is the FX5900 non-ultra, because that's the lowest and most affordable Nvidia card with 256bit memory bus. Other than that, it's GF4TI or you move to ATI.

No, it doesn't actually say anything about the memory bus. It does say "128-bit, studio-precision color", but that only means it can handle DX9 PS2.0 RGBA colors with it's pixel shaders (4x32 bits), which all NV3x cores can do. It's easy to get confused there, but it has nothing to do with the memory bus of the card. AFAIK they say nothing about the memory bus, they just hide the information. Irritating, isn't it?
