    I posted this previously as a "fix" until they Nvidia releases new drivers.
    Right now SLI doesn't work without some kind of tweak (there are several out there).

    Just a heads up. While nobody here has done this yet (and KUDOS to everybody for being honest!), there is already a well known MASSIVE cheat for 3Dmark11 and Radeon 5x00 cards. Reverting to Cat 10.5 can inflate scores far beyond realistic. There's some question if the scene is being even rendered correctly, though it completely appears to be doing so.

    Only recent Cat drivers from during or since 3Dmark 11's launch should be allowed to post scores. Cat 10.5 and before should be suspect.

    http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33971454

    Note shane_p's score jump. He posted an 8600 score peaked out on Cat 10.11, but then dropped driver version to Cat 10.5 and score jumped to 12000. 3400 points for a driver roll back to pre-3DM11 existing version? That's MEGA fishy. eva2000 goes on to do the same thing, netting a score of 15K+!!!

    These scores are bogus until Cat 10.5 can be proven to be fully rendering everything correctly. For reference, Catalyst 10.5 is NOT approved by Futuremark for submission to the leaderboards.

    Thanks for the info. Im going back through every post and if your score was with a pre 10.10 catalyst it will be removed

    Looking through some scores myself, I can confidently say that installing the OpenCL driver for ATi will also give you a small boost.

    There are several members that need to update drivers and until then scores will be pulled. I am not saying you are hacking but in order to maintain a proper list you must run @ least Catalyst 10.10 and above for ati and 260.99 and above for nvidia

    the members in question are:

    Many, many people have been sticking to 10.5's due to CrossFire reasons so most likely they haven't done anything suspicious. That being said 10.5's and 3DMark 11 can't go together to keep things on an even keel.

    well, see, there is this issue with the software info of AMD's drivers not updating properly in the older versions, remember?

    Why don't you show us that? You're showing Cat 10.11 there. Fail attempt to debate against.

    Not true, the links I showed clearly showed the older versions displaying their version number correctly in GPUz. The pics I showed prove that. That was a downgraded driver from 10.11 to 10.5, and it showed up fine in GPUz.

    On your system, sure. However, we do not always all get the same driver issues, so jsut because it behaves one way on your sytem does not mean it behaves that way on ALL systems.

    I mean, you could very well be right...in that a proper installation works right, however, there are many ways to get from one driver to the next, that may cause different results.


    I've got a 5870, I'll check it out.

    Personally, in the end, if the driver makes for more points, then I say we should all be using it. Who cares if the bench renders right or not...highest score "wins", right? ;)

    Ok I ran this on the latest drivers 10.12 and this is what I have so far . One would think with all the adds in this benchmark they could offer it up for free with out offering up a basic edition free ! MSI and antec sure got screen time there wounder how much they payed ! My cards are in CF and GPU-Z doesn't show this .

    Just to let ya'll know, I'm setting up my 5870 for testing of the cat 10.5 bug to confirm it. Will report back shortly.
