R9 290 owners: Is my R9 290 within the normal 3dmark11 scores? (Stock Graphics Score only)

    Given that the overall (P) 3dmark score varies because of ram speed, CPU, and so on, I'm interested in knowing if my R9 290's graphics score in 3dmark11 is within the normal range.

    Would someone kindly run the benchmark on the Performance preset and at stock GPU speeds?

    Here's a 3dmark11 run I just did a few minutes ago: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/8280474

    thanks :)

    There is a possibility to view a graph which compares you to other people that benched their R9 290 in the 3dmark website. That graph shows you are in the most common average which is 11400-13300 for this card. There are a lot of people scoring 13300-15100 as well, certainly overclocked.

    I'm looking at results from cards running at stock (947mhz) along with my CPU and most of them score 16000+ in graphics department.

    Mine only scores about 13500, on the graphics department.

    I'm only searching for valid results, I don't know if that means tat the clocks are correctly reported.

    after comparing them with the overclocked results (also in the 16k range), I assume that those who scored 16k @ stock clocks on the graphics score, were misreporting the clocks.

    I don't know, 3dmark.com's score don't seem to be trustworthy (I see supposedly stock clocks scoring way higher than me, and I can't tell if it's erratic clock reporting of if my card is under-performing.)

    I'd feel more reassured if someone could run their card at stock for me... I'd really be grateful!

    I believe some of the high scores (relative to clock speeds) are achieved by changing tessalation options in CCC, which results in a score boost. Not that it's cheating but sometimes it can be misleading.
