I tested out the GTU using 3dMark2001 and I used "fast" and many variations of the settings, but somehow I'm losing performance. I get a reduction in score of about 15 points. Any idea what would cause this??

Asus A7M266/1.2Ghz/Via 4.32/AMD AGP
Elsa Gladiac Geforce2 GTS/10.80

15 points is nothing in 3dmark I dont know how they designed that program but its not consistent. Reboot your computer and you will probably go back up. I would also recommend using nvmax instead
True, it isn´t very consistent.
I can overclock my M64 from 125/140 to 175/175 and still I score 1 point lower on the benchmark. On games, however, the results are visible.
My scores remain within 4 points, consistently. Using GTU with coolbits, consistently, reduces my score by about 15 points. Of course, I reboot each time I test. :rolleyes:
Update: CORRECTION. When using GTU I lose about 200 points!! When I return to the preGTU state, everything is kosher. ??????
