    Recently aquired a new PC and downloaded the demo version of 3DMark 13 on Steam. Results: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2508787

    Are these considered normal? Everything running at stock atm. I think the test ran at 720p, is that normal for the basic version? Some of it looked very pixelated.

    I get about the same score with my 780Ti card,so I would say normal score.
    I also hate my 780Ti because of the pixilation and artifacts. I prefer AMD cards or older Nvidia cards.

    Yes, basic has limited 720p only. Pixelated is normal because the digital monitor isn't native.

    eg: - digital monitor native (maximum 1920x1080) is 1920x1080, 960x540, 640x360, 1280x1080(not 16:9 but yes ~5:4 by vertical black bars)...

    - digital monitor pixelated (max 1920x1080) is 1680x1050, 1280x720, 1440x900...

    Multi-resolution native is for analog monitor (CRT).

    Can you understand well? ;)

    That's normal. I get about the same on single card running @ stock :)

    following on from that, are these scores normal? (can't post links yet but you can work it out from here 3dmark.com/3dm/2723631)

    Firestrike 9855
    Cloudgate 10221
    Icestorm 14632

    I'm quite dissappointed with the cloudgate score really - should I be?

    thanks for any opinions

    Doesn't look right to me.. Here are old scores with my build (with much lower clocks on GPUs versus now) : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/6750

    While your CPU is most likely olding your scores back, it still doesn't look right as we have basically the same GPUs.

    Firestrike normal with actual GPU clocks : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2707899?
    Firestrike extreme with actual GPU clocks : http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2707996?

    EDIT : Looking at the detailed fps reports in your 3DM score, I've seen that nothing goes past 60 FPS. I think you've forced Vsync ON. You shouldn't do that in benchmarks as it'll lock your max FPS with your display's refresh rate, 60 in this case. Disable it and you should get normal scores.

    Yeah. Without any doubt, the problem found is vsync enabled. :giggle2: :thumbup:
