    I normally get ~30k in 3DMark 11 Graphics score, here is a bench I ran some time ago:

    Now for some reason I am getting this:

    My 3DMark Firestrike score is great, and everything else appears to be in order.

    I'm on Windows 8 so I'm guessing it isn't that Win7 update that bricked some SLI users some time ago.

    I'm also on Beta drivers 320.14, if that helps.

    That is a HUGE drop for no apparent reason that I can figure out! :bang:

    I rebooted and tried again, same thing. Ran Firestrike again, score was excellent.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Has anything at all changed in your systems since then, hardware, system drivers, video drivers, clock speeds, latencies, ...?

    Try the driver you used back then.
    If you cant use it on Win 8, try it on win7 with different drivers to see if it makes much difference.

    The only significant change has been a new monitor, I don't see how that could have made a difference.

    I don't remember my exact drivers at that time, except I know they were stable instead of Beta. I will try rolling back to some stable drivers to see if that helps.

    Thanks. :)

    OK, I fixed it. :)

    Turns out that changing Scaling Mode from "Centered" to "Stretched" solved the problem.

    Dunno why, but that fixed the issue.
