I get that too when I post my 3dmark score.3DMark would probally have to be patched to fix it.I don't think 3DMark knows what it is looking at when it sees amd cpus of that speed.

3DMark2001 does not recognize the Tbred CPU, which you both have, although the 2200+ is tbred "A" its still a tbred and it's not in the 3dmarks database and can't be recognized
