Do you tweak your OS to be lean or use only fresh installs for benching?
Does this desktop look fresh lol...
This one even has FEAR multiplayer installed on it. The OS used for the last run was Win7 64 Pro and it is relatively fresh tho. Doubt that has anything to do with it.
Want me to try it with this OS (Win7 32) and cpu (i5 670) for comparison?
I'm wondering if W7 Ultimate is bogged down with crap.
I doubt it...let me grab v2.0 on this OS and try it with high/low clocks with that tweak. I would like to see the diff myself. Brb...
Yay and nay. I make sure to turn off all features, programs, processes right after O/S installation and it does help with my benching numbers. Though, after a while it's all for naught, as processes and whatever creep in.
34 processes isn't bad with using a virus scanner.
DLing v2.0 atm...gawd is it slow! I never do any other tweaks for these benchmarks. Unsure if it would make any difference.
all other tweaks to unigine benchmarks are not permitted.
Well that sucks...replication tweak has little to no effect with this dual core. I can't even approach my high score with v1.0 with nearly identical settings. Maybe the quads are utilizing the extra cores?
Going to try the 10.3 drivers...
New driver brings improvement but still not equal to v1.0. I will try the tweak next...
WTH! It shows the replication is enabled and I did'nt even pull up the console...does it save it from previous runs even when you exit?

Gulftown sure looks tempting...I better wait a bit tho.
Man it chewed that benchmark up. I had to triple check my settings to make sure they were correct.
Why are you running without Tessellation MetalRacer?
I didn't think it was required for DX10.
It isnt...That chip wasnt even close to cruise control either!

DX10 is EZmode for this hardware. That Gulftown sure is sweet though, MetalRacer!
Can't get the tweak up cause I can't fin which key that enables it on my norwegian keyboard:shadedshu

ok this is my stock laptop no overcloking it only has 3 setting for the 16.9 screen best I can do
MyDog - Lower your cpu clocks and see if it improves.
How low should I go?
And how do I enable the tweak on page one, I've pressed the tilde key but what console should I enter?
Try 4GHz...I think your tilde key is right above the tab key even on your keyboard.
There will only be the editor console that will come up. Just type in, hit enter and hit tilde again. The console will close and the screen should refresh so you can begin the benchmark.

Do need proper format to post score >.< UPDATING~ See post #1
Those two were for you BiNGE, not for score. Thanks
