    I know, boring for most I'm sure, but I finally broke 20K w/3Dmark06!

    I'm happy... not overclocking my video card at all, terrible ram settings, no LOD modifcations, etc. and I still pulled over 20K.

    Made my day anyways.

    Thanks! I upgraded from an 7800GT to this card... so it's a whole new world.

    Grats on your achievement, it's sure nice to break in 20k in a such a hard benchmark like 2k6

    But just a little question ... Let's put no LOD, VGA @ stock clocks, terrible ram timings tweaking aside ... You have a Q9650 @ 4GHz, and a powerful VGA (even on stock clocks) ... Why wouldn't you be able to pull off 20k ? It's normal If you benched with same settings on XP, you'd pull of like 20200 maybe more

    Now tweak you ram timings and sub-timings, overclock that poor 9800GX2 to its limits, use a bit higher cpu clocks, kill explorer.exe and 21k here I come

    @Grafiz, you CPU score seems to be low. My Q6600 @ 3.84 score about 5.3k while your Q9650 @ 4ghz score at 5.3k? Don't make sense to me, something is wrong.

    Nope, window 7 which same as window vista. Window Xp i get ~6k CPU score on 3dmark06




    Btw, look at loser777's CPU score,which about 6.2k in window xp. So, comparing to my score in xp ~6k then it is reasonable.

    Windows 7 are not same with Windows Vista in 3D Performance ... Actually we can't be sure about their performance, it's really early to jump to any misleading conclusion I've noticed they are slightly faster than Vista in 3Ds ...

    My whole point of posting is about CPU score, not 3D performances.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I think you're right... the only reason it was a surprise to me was this is all second generation hardware, fast as it might be, the 2XX series and i7 are already out... and thats totally ignoring all the performance ATI brings to the table!

    This was just the first run at it, I was expecting to see 15K or so, when it was over 20K I was pretty surprised. And I'm with you... time to crank up the video card and optimize the OS, see what I can really get out of this!

    Interesting... very interesting.

    I stopped overclocking years ago, this is my first upgrade in several years so I'm not up to speed with what I should be seeing, or all the differences between the operating systems.

    I guess I should thank you for bringing it to the table, as well as George_o/c for all the information provided, I guess my next step is to slap a copy of XP pro on and see if I can increase my numbers a bit... not that it really matters to me, but it would be fun to see what I can do with this new system!

    Thanks again, to the both of you!

    Cpu scores are sh*t on Vista64. With sames sys I get like 5.3k with a 4Ghz Q6600, whereas on XP32 it is 6.1k...
    Overall scores differ from 19.4k to 20.3k (Vista64 vs XP32) on my rig. Specs as below.
    CoolerMaster RC-690 :: Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z :: intel i5 2500K @ Noctua NH-D14 :: 2x2GB Mushkin 996783 Blackline 1600Mhz CL7 :: Samsung F1 HD642JJ 640GB :: Samsung F2 EcoGreen HD154UI 1.5TB :: Pioneer DVR-212D :: Creative SB X-FI :: Corsair HX520W :: Genius SW-5.1 HT DHT510 :: Dell Ultrasharp U2311H :: Razer Diamondback Acid Green
