View Full Version : What the heck 9600 pro scores a 8K 3DMark 2K1 on a 3ghz machine?
09-13-03, 04:13 PM
I just installed my ATI 9600 Pro with 3.7 catayst drivers.
I did a baseline in 3KMark2001 and it scored a 8054???
My overclocked G4MX440 score 8100!
Something has to be wrong I hope :-/
My system specs are
P4 2.4c @ 3.12ghz
2x256 HyperX PC3500
What do I need to do here?

did u install the mobo drivers? (aka chipset drivers)
You sure antialiasing and anisotropic filtering are off?

yea chipset driver are installed and AA and AF are off.
How bout this 'Wait for vertical sync' option? It has a checkbox that says allways off. Should I check that?

I just uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them and my score went up to 12,181.
The first set of 3.7 drivers I got from 3dguru. It said they were official drivers but the file name was slightly different.
It ended with a 36c and the drivers from the ATI site ended with a 35c-efg.
I'm not sure what that means, but my score is much better now.
12K sounds about right for my rig doesn't it?
Also, should I turn off vSync when gaming and benchmarking? I'm not sure what it does and it is set to application default.
Yes, vsync should be off. It limits your fps to your refresh rate so that you don't get tearing.
