Angry Why does my gffx 5800 ultra suck so bad?

Here is my 3dmard03 scores with w/o oc on the radeon 9700 pro and my gffx 5800 ultra. Whys is clock freq only 301mhz? I thought it was supposed to be 500mhz!!!!

Score: 4842

Date: 2003-03-07
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2800 MHz
GPU: ATI RADEON 9700/9500 Series
324 MHz / 311 MHz
OS: Microsoft Windows XP
Res: 1024x768@32 bit


Score: 4030

Date: 2003-03-29
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2812 MHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForceFX Series
301 MHz / 602 MHz
OS: Microsoft Windows XP
Res: 1024x768@32 bit
Verto GeForce4 TI 4600
MSRP $ 399.99

Pny web site analyzer says a gforce4 ti 4600 is 1481% better than my gffx 5800 ultra what the crap is going on??




MikeC: I updated the subject line of this thread to something more appropriate - from "Why does my gffx 5800 ultra suck so bad?" to "Unexpected 3DMark03 score with GeForce FX 5800 Ultra"

do you have the latest bios drivers? etc??? these drivers helped my score tremendously in 3dmark 2k3 with my geforcefx... and as for the incorrect clockspeed, dont worry about that, mine does the same thing(see sig) but it is running at full speed.

I found my answer, heres a peice from www.hardocp.com. When I run 3dmark or pny analyzer their software application only is 2d!!!!

"It has hardware monitoring abilities that allow it to adjust fan speed and clock speed automatically. When in a standard 2D environment it operates at 300MHz core and 300MHz (600MHz DDR) memory. This allows it to not generate as much heat and thus producing less fan noise. When a 3D application is initialized, the card adjusts the clocks to 500/500 (1000 DDR) instantaneously and at the same time the fan spins up to full speed".

I should flame you for saying that.



The GeforceFX isn't sh!t. If you have the cash, buy it. It just came too late for it to be a good solution in highend gaming other than the Radeon 9700 Pro.

The best way to format is to type:

Code:
format c:
In DOS under a Windows 9x startup disk.

Remove all traces of ATi from your system. Go to Install/Uninstall Programs and uninstall all of the ATi stuff.

No, really, it is a piece of crap. I had the displeasure of seeing one in person recently. However, that aside, I can't fathom switching from a 9700 pro to an FX. Just doesn't make much sense to downgrade AND pay more.
