Default 3DMark 03, 05, 06 scores - normal?

3DMark03 - 7314
3DMark05 - 4851
3DMark06 - 2304

The system specs are in my signature (everything is running at out-of-the-box speeds). Are these scores typical for this kind of a rig? I haven't completely attacked the running processes on my computer to get optimal speeds, but I don't know how much that would affect the performance. You can click on the processor and memory in my sig to see the CPU-Z screenshots of those categories. It also appears my memory is currently running at 2T.

My PC specs are in my sig. But comparing I think your scores are a little low.

Well, how low is 'a little low'? What could be the issue? Will pruning the running processes (recommended by 3DMark) and bumping my memory up to 1T provide a noticeable boost? There are quite a bit of processes running. Here's a screenshot of the Windows Task Manager performance tab to show available memory vs. total memory. Also notice in the bottom left where it displays the amount of processes that are currently running.

Your memory has nothing to do with it, its probably your graphics card.

Friend, I garantee you have a problem with your driver settings or graphic card. Your 03 score is way too low. My 7600GT should score the same as your 7800GS. Your CPU is fine, your ram is fine, your graphic card is not scoring right at all.

Here are my 7600GT scores:
3DMark03 - 13901 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=4847542
3DMark05 - 6763 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=2085927
3DMark06 - 3429 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=366547

Most likely you have 2xAA forced on your nvidia control panel (for image quality). I would have expected 12000/6000/3000 from your rig.

That sounds right. I'll have to check when I get back to my computer.

3DMark06: 2526

Those scores look a bit better. Olivaw was right about the forced AA/AF in the nVIDIA control panel.

Something is still wrong. I get 2454 on my system in sig and it's way slower than yours. Oh yeah and that's without my cpu oc.

Well, I'll probably just have to live with it for now. The card doesn't crap out when playing any games, and everything I've tried throwing at my rig still runs smoothly. If the numbers are off, it doesn't bother me too much (although I'll try some spring cleaning to see if that's affecting it any). I'll probably finally make the plunge to PCI-E next February.

Its not way slower... 3dmark06 is GPU bound, only. And both your cards, the 7800GS and 6800GT are very very similar in specs. The 7800GS can do a few more shaders ops, but both cards have the same clocks, pixel pipelines and vertex pipelines.

So Xasz, your score is quite fine now. Others probably just tweak a bit, but at least now you're in the right ballpark

cheers!

Play games, not benchies!
