    Just looking at performance on the new drivers , could someone tell me how the test with the higher score (previous drivers) beat the new one? considering the new drivers performed better in every test? :D Im assuming its the "combined score" so i can assume the the new drivers are slightly faster as the graphics score is mainly just the gpu? And yes i realise synthetic benchmarks are not the best way of testing but very old habits die hard :D

    Combined score is always erratic, I don't pay much attention to it.

    A jump / drop like that in your combined test score would indicate to me that either your CPU or GPU overclock became unstable. From the looks of your physics score, I'm gonna go with GPU.

    GPU was pegged at 2012 for the entire run so that seemed ok

    Run it again. See what happens. It's not uncommon to see 2 or 3 point differences in the combined scores between runs, but what you posted seems excessive.

    Doesn't seem like you really care about the score, so.....why bother?

    Clearly. I think we should start blaming them for everything. I had a flat tire yesterday..... lol
