Intel Pentium D 820 series 2.8Ghz@3.173

1.5 Gb of PC3200 RAM (Supertalent)

Sorry about the font, I just thought it looked cool!:laugh: Anyway, I ended up working on it for quite some time, and messed around with ATI Tool, and some catalyst options, and just by disabling catalyst's AI, my score raised from 5925 to 6233! To bad I cant get it any higher though :-( Unless someone has any more idea's, or tips!

Catalyst A.I control can be found under the 3D section if you use the advanced options when you start catayst, im not sure in ATI Tool, but I used Radlinker to adjust my catalyst A.I settings. Hope that helped a little! :)

5925-6233 is exactly what you should be getting. I get about 5600~ because my video card sucks.
i disabled my catalyst AI, didnnt really get a score increase, but i can tell my games run at a more consistant frame rate.

Yeah spot on, I am on just over 7100 with my rig and the 850 pro is a bit behind the xt clocked well in excess of xtpe speeds.

wait 7330 in 05 with that card? most benchmarks ive seen for that card arent above 6000. can you post a screenshot for "more then your word" proof? 7000+ seems pretty high for your rig.

Cant get print screen up will have to load photoshop as only got powerpoint on at moment and "Ctrl V" wont work with that, bear with me, incidentially was in a thread least week where 3 or 4 told me my scores were low and should be arond 7600!! I'll be back, if I have no luck with that I will post my score on futuremarks score board and post the link....watch this space. I see you have the 1600 so I would not expect yours to be anywhere near as quick.

Cheers

Oh, so you think I have most likely topped out my score in '05? Hmm... Ya, I had also changed some setting's in radlinker as well to get a higher score increase. I will post a s-s of it. Anyway, what if I flashed my card to the xt or xtpe version of the x850? Sorry about so many questions, im some what new to all this. :)

look at the 3dmark05 chart at the bottom, rates yours as being ~700 points gain on mine. theres no way you have a 1300-1600 point gain on mine with our rigs, thats twice the difference shown from the benchmark.

The CPU in used for that benchmark is a 2.4ghz San Diago A64 +4000, so its a little better then what we got. Even if our scores dont match the ones shown in the benchmark the differences should still be comparable.

im talkin to the guy who seems to have disapeared when asked to provide any form of proof hes getting 7k+ in 3dmark05 with a x850 xt.

All he has to do is run the 3dmark05 test, press print screen, open paint, press ctrl-v, save as jpg, upload a post saying "sorry by 7333 i meant 6700...heres the screeny."

(yes that would be tatty_one)

Ohhh sorry, did I disapeer? I thought I was playin footy wiv me kids and stopped off to have a MacDonalds on the way back, sorry didnt realise I was working to your tight timetable here.

I have run the benchmark and saved the file because although I tried your suggestion and presses (in my case F8? - Print screen?) I t will not"Ctrl v" in paint, dont know why unless "print screen" is not the right key but none of the others resemble the right one. My benchmark score this time is actually 7193, that is probably down to the fact that I flashed my BIOS earlier today with the OCW Beta 5 in prep for a Voltmod and have not got around the "fine tweeks" I had on the ASROCK Bios V1.50.

Grateful for any further suggestions in how to post the results or would I be able to e mail the saved file from 3D Mark 05 so someone could open it? The theory that an 850xt on speeds exceeding PE only hit 6000 in 3D Mark 05 is pretty ludicrous in any case, in contrast to you, I dont know anyone with an overclocked 850xt getting so low!
