    9800GTX 3dmark Vantage score question

    Processor: Intel Core i7 8320 3.6ghz @ 4.3ghz
    Memory: Crucial 16GB DDR3-1600 (2 x 8GB)

    Here is what I scored:

    775/1938/1100

    837/2068/1200

    Seems like you are using the non-CUDA drivers...


    Here you go:

    Vista 32bit 177.35
    Vista 64bit 177.35

    You will need to download the drivers AND the modified INF file on that page. When the drivers download, run the .exe (it is an extraction program) and it will create a folder on the desktop (example: 177.35_winxp64). Place the modified INF file in the folder, overwriting the existing one. Run the installer normally (setup.exe in the extracted folder) and reboot your computer.

    Ah, ok, that isn't bad for the driver you are running though. Change them out and you should beat my first score easily.

    I mean it shows your proc getting 33K, I dont understand why your E3110 would crush my proc so bad.

    It is the drivers

    to the forums!

    It actually enables CUDA on the card. The reason it is so high is because it now does physics on the GPU. The GPU can do many many more floating point operations (what most of physics is) than the CPU can.

    If you got the same score, the drivers did not install. Completely remove them (add/remove program + Driver Cleaner Pro + deleting the nVidia folder in C:\) and restart. Make sure the resolution is really low when Windows starts, that means the drivers were removed and it isn't using them. THEN install the 177.35's

    Open the nVidia control panel and go to Help<System Information. It will tell you the driver version it is using. What does yours say?

    PhysX drivers = cheating :P anyway as most games do not use Physx, so it doesn't matter as much but it helps in games that do use it though.

    Thanks for the tips on the drivers, maybe this will help my score as I seem to have really crappy experience when I play Crysis. Slows down really bad after a while, but I think I'm not the only one, I'm hopeing I can get a water kit for the card and solve the cooling problem as I think thats the reason it does it.

    omni - if you think it's overheating you could run Rivatuner in the background while playing and have it log temperatures or even just leave the graph for temps open, when you quit out of the game it will show the recent temps.
