    While running 3DMark 2001SE on both my PCs, the scores are tottaly wierd.

    Computer #1:
    -P4 prescott 3.0Ghz 1M 800FSB
    -1024 DDR400
    -FX 5200 128MB

    score = 3800

    Computer #2:
    -P4 2.4Ghz 512KB 533FSB
    -256MB DDR333
    -Geforce MX 440 128MB

    score = 5000


    Is it just me or is there a serious problem here? My first setup is scoring wayy to low.
    Help needed!!

    Newer card will happy and give higher score with the newer benchmark. Try 3Dmark05 or 3dmark06 for sure.

    Don't worry, my 9500pro score is slightly below x1600pro score for 3Dmark01SE too.

    Regards,
    Arto.

    no, that makes no sense at all

    i wouldn't be surprised if you were using a kvm switch and got confused, cuz mx440 aint close to any fx series.

    my gf has a 5200go in her dell lappy and it scores ~4000 in 01 (it's a 2.8ghz w/ 512mb ram)

    so maybe you're 5200 is a little wankered and your mx440 you are adding a power of 10?

    run it again and take screenies

    I ran it 3 times for each PC. Now its even higher for the second PC, at 5400.

    This really does make no sence. What abt what the guy above u said abt older cards running better on older versions of 3DMark?

    Try something like 03 or 05, which are less dependant on CPU and other things, and mainly dependant on the GPU.

    Yeah, I know what you mean.

    Are there other programs in the background?

    Had to change account - we have bad mods in the forum.. never thought id see this on techpowerup.

    Anyway, the PC that is supposed to suck DOES have programs in the background while the good one dosent.

    However, ive learned that the FX 5200 is worse than the MX 440, while asking at TomsHardware, so I guess i feel better.
    Thnx for trying to help me. If i was already rich, id give u something.
