And that's a 3.2 P4 at default clock??? Yeah, hard to figure a few of the scores here. I got the free edition of 3DMark2005 so nothing to tweak. Plus I gotta pass the whole damn CPU tests.

I've found a lot of overclocks will pass the 3D sections of 3DMark2005 and 3DMark2003 but not the CPU tests, which means the CPU isn't truly stable. Same with 3DMark2001: I've seen a few overclocks fail the high polygon test, which you don't need to get a 3D score. I don't consider an overclock valid unless the Marks pass every single test.

The P4s won't run 3DMark2000 in WinXP due to HT so they get off a bit easy. On the AMD rigs, a stable overclock has to pass all four 3DMarks. I seen some overclocks have trouble with 3DMark2000, which I bet a lot of guys don't run anymore.

its a lady holding her baby, probably his wife and kid

is it just me, or are the athlon XPs scoring higher than the a64s? seems very strange as im sure its a different story in real gaming

I got a surprising score on my dated RDRAM rig: P4T-E running 2x256 PC1066 at 156/4x or 3.12 gig on a 2.0A. This is a pre-HT CPU. 3DMark2005 score was 5458, no cheats of any kind! In fact, even in 3DMark2003, it beat my 2600 mhz Mobile Barton rigs handily:12,127 compared to 11,491.

Unfortunately, 3DMark2001 scores are almost 2,600 points lower. Aquamark is maybe 10k lower too at 53,000. Probably the latter benchmarks benefit from a more powerful processor? I dunno, what is a 2600 mhz Barton equivalent to, P4-wise?

I am using the latest ATI drivers on an X800XT at PE clock. Hell, I ain't seen under 5k yet on various rigs. I wonder what's up?

But you definitely CANNOT go by 3DMark scores when it comes to actual gaming with something like Doom3. Despite the 5458 3DMark2005 score, the 512 MB ram (and 256 MB on the card) just won't cut it at 1600x1200x32, 4xFSAA, 16xAniso, and ultra detail. I tried to play it: too many freezes and stutters.

I think CAS settings on the ram play an influence. Now not THAT much with 3DMark2005, where the high end video card is doing all the work.

On my RDRAM rig, buffered bandwidth is 4000, unbuffered is 2500. Try getting that on an NF2 board. You're talking maybe 260-270 fsb, where nobody can boot, much less bench.

On my NF2 boards, I'm running 2-2-2-5 or 2.5-2-2-5 on the ram, CPC enabled or 1T. Relatively low fsb at 220-236, but a lot of these A64 guys are running that TCCD stuff at 2.5-3-3-6, maybe high fsb, but at 2T. If they aren't running that ram, they must be running even slower timings.

It's entirely possible a Mobile Barton at 2600 mhz, 220x12, 2-2-2-5 at 1T will beat an A64 at 2400-2500 mhz, 275x9, 2.5-3-3-6, 2T. I'll find out, I'm trying a DFI 250GB NF3 board next.

Yeah, you see a lot of banzai runs with guys at 280-300 HTT, or volt-modded DFI NF3 boards with BH-5 at 265, 2-2-2-5, but those boards are lucky to complete a 25 second SuperPI 1M run, much less anything in 3D.

You should see a big diff there as that is a dual channel board. The DFI 250GB NF3 is SC, so guys running small overclocks (Clawhammers don't overclock well) and slow CAS settings at 2T; all that will take it's toll.

I got the impression with the NF2 board that the ingredients for performance are: big CPU, fast CAS settings, 1T (CPC Enabled). High fsb not much of a factor as the multi is unlocked.
