  1. Hi folks, I have a question I'm hoping someone can help me with. I am scoring rather low (IMHO) with Mad Onion's 3d Mark Bench test. I score at 2748 3d Mark Points. However I thought I would score in or around mid 4000's to low 5000's. My system specs are to follow

    CPU: Intel P4 Intel 3.0Ghz (800Mhz FSB w/ HT)
    Mobo: Intel D865PERL
    RAM: Kingston PC3200 512MB x2 @ 800Mhz
    Video: ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AIW (128MB)
    Operating System: Windows 2000 SP4

    What do you guys think? Any suggestions to raise the scores!?

    Gee... wish I had your machine. Is you DX up to date? Anything else running while you do this test? Try another test from someone else? Where is a link to get to this test, maybe I'll test my sad little machine.

    By your system specs, that machine should really crank! Maybe another Gig of memory wouldn't hurt, but that is getting picky. Maybe you need updated drivers for the video card? Maybe a bios update? You've probably already done all that, but there isn't much else to check. Could your hard drive be slowing things down? Is DMA enabled?

    I had to use the 3D2001 bench mark. The newer 3D2003 would not run!

    I'm proud considering I got more than a 3.0 Ghz P4 on a 2Ghz celeron!

    Contrast, again the 3D2001 tests. The machine in my profile only gave a 3D score of 850.

  9. Yeah thanks for your responses, I have DX9 as the test requires it and it comes with the ATI Drivers. Since all my hardware is so new I figured my drivers don't need updating. I will check into the ATI Drivers, but I don't want to do a BIOS flash since everything is working properly on that end of the stick.

    HOWEVER I determined today that I am going to get another Hard Drive and run it in RAID Mode 0 since I hear that really helps with Hard Disk speed. I have a Western Digital 7,200 RPM UDMA 100 100GB Drive now, so I really don't think the Hard Drive is the problem. I know I can get faster ones but that should suffice, and since I'm going RAID I will get double the throughput. Any other suggestions folks?
