I flashed my pny 5900 ultra to 5950 and run it for about several months. Now I just have a chance to mess around with it and run 3dmark03 again and my score is like in the 3,000 range. I used to have a score in the 6,000. Does this mean my card is dead or going to be dead? BTW, I run the test now with the same speed as I did before.

It sounds like your card is getting hot to me. The BIOS is throttling it, dropping core voltage and speed to cool dopwn a little.


With stock speeds, my 5900XT 3Dmark scores dropped from 5700 to 4300 with 62.xx though saying that.

I'm not all that bothered because game framerates are up for sure.

Sounds like you may have AA turned on
That is exactly what happens since I meant to turn AA on one of the game. I guess it turn into global. But did any of you get any kind of a blurry screen during cpu testing part of 3dmark03? I mean I can see planes flying but the texts at the bottom kinda blurry.
