View Full Version : Re: Is my 3Dmark03 score normal for my setup (GeForce XP 5900)?

Might want to try the latest BETA drivers on this site
http://www.guru3d.com/ should bring it up to nearer the 5000 mark. But that
score looks about right for a non-overclocked system wit the non-ultra card.

My 5900 ULTRA gets around 6200 on 3DMark03 with the 44.71 drivers.

Sounds right but you'll get more performance with the beta 44.67 or 44.71
beta drivers.

Please remember the quotes around "performance" next time.

Well Roger,

I tested both versions of the beta driver against the 44.03 in several
different gaming benchmarks as well as 3DMark2003 and the performance is
about 7-10 percent more depending on the game. This is without any
overclocking applied.

For what it's worth I get 5600 odd with a GeForceFX5800 Ultra and an
XP2400+ CPU on a 266FSB Mobo (PC2100 Ram) and no overclocking using 44.03
drivers and Windows 2003 Server.
