Disappointing Video card performance on 3D Mark with new video card, what could be the causes?
Posted on 2004-08-19
So I just bought myself a new ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256Mb 256 bit interface, and while I have heard of people attaining up to 20500 on 3d mark 2001SE, i only managed a 14500. On 3d Mark 2003, I got 4929.
My current system is AMD 64 3000+, 1 gb corsair value select RAM, ASUS K8v Deluxe motherboard, w/430 watt Award PSU. Are there settings in BIOS or other possible things restricting my performance? I heard that the latest ATI drivers can sometimes do that. i have my AGP aperature size set to 256, that wasnt set before, but I dont know how much of a difference that makes. Fast write is also enabled.
