Well, I'm below 50 now, reckon I can get around 10 with a little more tweaking!

I've managed a 59, but none of my scores are submitting...

Anyone know why I can't manage any submissions at all? Even my stock, baseline score won't submit thru 3dmark03. I've made an account on the Results website.

The system profiler thing in 3dmark03 also seems to have trouble with my hardware, it doesn't want to see the RAM frequencies at all... might this have something to do with it?

newer cpu's have better multimedia extensions, cache, etc... so even underclocked they'd be better than the same older cpu at the same speed. same for the gpu

If W1zzard will accept that (with no scores for the various tests), I actually had one run with a score of 0.

I did not save it, though, because I believed unless you have scores for each individual test, it would be invalid.

EDIT:

How about this?

What happened to your Vertex Shader and Ragtroll? Besides it says your driver isn't approved.
I would like to get a clarification on the driver, also.

got a quick question, what's the power requirement for the prototype and will they have drivers for it?

Ive noticed that the FPS rates below 0.5 simply wont show on the website no matter what you do those wont show i watched myself my computer going through all the tests it actually took around 1 hour run to get the 16 score... i think it is not valid when it says N/A because that means that the actual test wasnt taken. And about the Driver issue im using the latest drivers from Nvidia, i read in another thread that a guy said that the driver issue could be just that futuremark doesnt updates its drivers database for 3Dmark03... that is just my opinion, i guess we still have to wait for W1zzard to clear this out :)

EDIT: i just noticed that my Rag Troll is marked as N/A i guess ill have to do it again ... sigh... this is becoming really hard LOL ...it is fun tho

just FYI it was clarified earlier outside of modding 3dmark and its checksum anything was good to go software wise that would include running a driver that is not 3dmark approved.

I know this likely wont be answered, but can I run my Zotac Atom/Ion board even if it reports as a mobile chipset?

I am not too sure about getting N/A, I guess the lowest we can get is 0fps right? Any ideas?

Oh it ran, alright. I got a whole 14 frames out of that one. Something about a phoenix that falls in a river or something like that.

Edit: Just looked it up, apparently it was a butterfly. Half the textures were missing since it's running from an JABOD volume of ~200 MB IDE drives, though.

ok, this is just like what joseaugusto1 said, if the FPS is 0 fps, it won't appear in the online result, however if I don't run the test at all, N/A would appear in the online result.

So how do we determine the results' validity?
