Wow what a complete fail of a benchmark
press "ctrl + print" by Windows or press key default by eVGA Precision or by MSI Afterburner to capture image.
What's your geforce driver (default or HQ setting (please do keep disable AA, AF...)) and OS?
See my scores in post #8 but attention to 1920x1200.
I can't capture result because I got error message when test was ending due to maybe graphics problems (bus, table and more few). xD lool But I can get better than 20k - 20025!!!
I got better min 51 fps (end of part 1 - far lot of people) at 720x480 running XP despite same speed CPU@4.5GHz. woww!
But I try update geforce driver from 310.90WHQL to 314.07WHQL to maybe fix these issues.
how so? except for the alt tabbing bs.
I can save to capture image before get error message despite perfectly graphics (no problems). lool
720x480@0xAA with all max set except motion blur off running XP and see same speeds CPU + GPU-314.07WHQL (HQ)
Better and insane score!
all settings maximum
Driver = 314.07 qhql
OS = Windows 8 pro 64 bit
Quality = let the 3d application decide
Resolution 1920 x 1200
one gtx 480 = 7113
sli gtx 480 = 11876
cpu still 4.2Ghz and gpu still 900/2125
Its a fail of a benchmark because there is no way to tell if someone has alt tabbed or not. It wont boost your score by squillions if you alt tab then immediately go back to the bench, it will only boost your score by 1000 points, but if you alt tab for a good length of time it boosts the score massively.
So eg : someone runs a bench, alt tabs briefly for a second, does this 3 times throughout the run (raising his score by 3000)...how do you know hes alt tabbed if he fails to mention he alt tabbed and is being dishonest?
Its to see if you can run the game
I put up a 12k 7980 @1250 3770k @4.0 max settings so i can run it i guess
Games are crap comuinty benchmarks you can cheat so many ways
Like all game benchmark, hence why they are not used on competition.. you can set in driver all in minimum ( force AA off, AF, mipmap in low, use LOD etc ) and put all in max on the games.. and boost your score so easely..
Of course all benchmarks you can change your settings in ccc or nvidia control panel but thatll change your score slightly. Whereas i could put up my 90+k score in this bench which is ridiculous lol
Its obvious but other tweaks are sometimes not so easy to spot.
as lane said in more detail.
You can show HQ in game settings but too many ways to go around them.
Benches like fm3d or benches with "wrappers" you cant dont things like that to add 1k every time
guys, please check file sizes before posting images. Some posts have been deleted because they contained gigantor images, one of which was over 4mb. Collectively they make this webpage use a ridiculous amount of bandwidth!
