When I run my GPU and my graphics memory at any speed over stock, I get really weird flashing multi-colored lights on the calico level and strange graphics corruption on the Jane Nash level. My memory, gpu, and pcb are at 56 degrees or less! Currently, I'm trying to run the benchmark at 870/927. Could this be a software problem? I can play all games (Crysis, etc.) and 3dmark 06 fine without graphics corruption...

Does anyone know a solution?

Thanks. :toast:

I've tried both 8.4 and the Futuremark Vantage Hotfix driver. Both result in the same corruption. :(

what happens when you run the bench at stock clocks?
or have you done that yet?

If I run the benchmark at stock clocks, it's fine. However, if I speed my gpu up at all (even 20 mhz), I get the weird graphical flashes and errors.

jbunch, I was using the hotfix for the bench with the CPU @ 3.6 GHz. The first one I listed (perhaps it was the other thread) was with the 8.4's and the CPU @ stock, but I have major corrption in Jane Nash and New Calico.

Which version of Vantage do you have? I have the Pro version. The basic version (IIRC) only allows you to view your results in the ORB (online results browser).

I really don't know all the Ins & Outs of the different versions they have. All I know is that Basis = 1 submission, Pro has the built-in results screen.

Yeah, what is the difference? That is a lot of money for a benching program?!

Pro is targeted at businesses and the like. I believe it may be a VLK of some sort. It's also the only one that will show you the results without submitting. hwbot and some other sites are lobbying Futuremark to include that feature in the advanced version as well. Hopefully they'll do it in the next update. It would make more people willing to spend the $20 on the Advanced version, imo.

I installed the CAT 8.5's and found out they did not have the hotfix included. I went to revert back to the hotfix driver and, even though it was installed correctly, I still got corruption like the original 8.4's.

I was hoping to push the mobo & CPU a little more and see what I'd get :(

Well, if your sole purpose is to run the benches, I'd say no. If you want the other features from the 8.5's more, then yes.

I'm with Will, I have a hard time believing that any 2.6ghz CPU can score over 10K on a vantage CPU test.
It's too easy to photoshop, and for all we know that could be any quad over 4ghz on a 3dMark06 test, too much is cropped out to know anything.

True. knowing it, it might as well be a skull trail of x2's or tri gx2's just for the Sh1ts and giggles. They give you the hope for it.... Just can't wait to see how much everything will be!
