"rule number 4
Only stand alone graphic cards are valid for this competition"
Bunch of cowards getting x300s and pentium 2s. 30mins and got sub 500 score with 3930k and gtx 480 at stock, os and 3dmark on ssd. I would say well under 100 scores are easily doable even at stock clocks.
I find that it is easier to get a lower score by using modern system than those p1-p4 with 9600pro or any first dx9 cards.
@ GC I don't think ssd will improve or decrease the score.
hi, i'm new here. it is stated in the rules that a N/A result is not counted. will that void the whole score? the reason why i asked this is due to i have 1 result which is N/A at the Sound Test section of the benchmark.
All you need are
GT1 - Wings of Fury
GT2 - Battle of Proxycon
GT3 - Troll's Lair
GT4 - Mother Nature
All the other tests don't matter. You can even hit escape after the Mother Nature test so you don't have to sit through the CPU and feature tests.
Which is why most contests are not worldwide. That and the other added hassle of shipping halfway across the world and hoping it gets there.
Im going to need confirmation from W1zzard if this is only what you need for this competition.
2.All game tests including Nature test must be supported and completed (First round)
sound tests are not game tests
looks like it will be hard for those noobie(including me) to compete to this competition )
good luck! fellow members
it just requires you to think a little bit outside of the box how to get a low score
To upload my scores, I have to buy 3D mark 2003?
You don't have to pay anything for it.
I tried underclocking my latest rig but still got a 10k score
My lowest is 60 on my old dual coal pc but I cant underclock the gpu that much and cpu is locked
The competition requires the link to the score:
And online submissions is only possible if you buy 3DMark2003 for 9.99 or was it 19.99 USD
I just got a clarification from PowerColor regarding the rules. No notebooks of any kind are allowed. No exceptions for MXM
Also the best score so far is not 1 so you still have chance
make a virtual machine with a 1 cpu and run prime during the test.
Is this valid score (Y U no VGA name) http://www.3dmark.com/3dm03/6478330
*This score is too high to win but is just first trying I ll can reach much lower
I think it's not valid, since you're using on-board graphics..
So how many winner/s for first round? Is it only 1 could get all that 5 stuffs for 1st round?
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm03/6478323 Bollocks, needed to render one more frame in the first test and it would have been a valid 5 or 6. IE wouldn't even show the page properly, so even if it was valid I wouldn't have been able to tie it to my account.
Just scored 279 with overclocked hardware and drivers set to performance lol.
Not going to say what I had running in the background but it was only 1 app.
I think I might have a chance in this.
So why system can't see my GTX 550 Ti card?
oh! I thought that you don't have a standalone graphics card since it says @ # of cards is 0
try to update your graphics drivers and the Futuremark SystemInfo
