Help interpret My 3Dmark03 scores....please

Feb 25, 2004
  1. Hello all...

    Bought a video from my last thread and now that I have it installed <Asylum GeForce FX 5700 ultra>, I've ran 3Dmark twice now and they are close as to the #'s., But something doesn't seem right watching the video's for the tests. Last card was a GeForce 2 mx 400, so I expected some great things, But for some reason I don't feel so good about

    Can someone give me some tips, or settings or even if I have to have the Nvidia desktop running to make it work better...? lol

    Drivers Are up to date on video/audio, everything else, (mobo,chip) pretty much no.

    I also thought I could get a score or frame rate from playing my own game (desert combat), but it only runs its own..??

    Thanks for the help..................

    Have a great day................:rolleyes:

    Looks fine for a 5700. I get ~5600 with a 9800 Pro.

    3dMark03 tests the video card and not much else. If you want higher scores, you have to get a better video card.

    I don't know how much that 5700 cost you, but slap yourself if you paid ~$150 because a 9600XT/Pro costs that much.

    Yeh and the 5700 Ultra is actually faster.....

    You could always buy yourself a new CPU/Mobo/RAM - that would give u a very good performance increase. Other than that there is only overclocking as an option.


    EDIT - Odd, 3DMark doesnt detect the 5700 Ultra clock speeds correct for you either - i thought it might be my windows install screwing up - maybe just a inability to read the speeds correctly

    If your CPU really 933MHz, then no wonder there isn't a big difference.

    3Dmark 03 was made in mind for systems twice and even three times as fast...

    You should consider running 2001se for a more accurate portrayal of your gaming potential.
