Default This 3dMark01 a bit low for 5700 Ultra?

I get a 3dMark01 SE scores of bet 9750 and 9950 on

PNY 5700 Ultra 128 DDR2 (stock clock 300 Core/ 906 Mem)
Athlon XP 2400+ 133FSB
1G PC2700 DDR
ECS K7S5A mobo (I know, I know !)
Latest 61.77 Official NVidia Drivers Windows XP.
Dual Screen enabled.
AGP 4x

Not doing anything fancy but I expected higher scores. Am I missing
something ? New to all this,
just put my trusty Matrox G400 in storage

I dont usually comment on stupid benchmark posts, but it seems obvious your
system is dying with a 133FSB...

Yeah, but still at the most he would probably get around 1000 extra points with
faster ram and a higher fsb.
I had that motherboard, and switched to a NF7-S. My score went up a bit so I
think it's a combination of your motherboard, fsb and memory.

Your system isn't as much of a dog as the previous posters would have you
believe. And it's a 266Mhz effective bus speed. Even P4 3.2 systems run a
"true" 200Mhz FSB (800Mhz quad pumped) On a Barton 3200 or 3 GHz P4 with a
gig of RAM a 5700 Ultra should bench in the 15,000+ range. You're getting
scores that my old Radeon 9100 did on a Barton 3200. I would expect a 5700
Ultra on your system to be in the 13,000+ range. I've seen two reviews
relevant your card and system; one an XP1800+ system clocked to slightly
above XP2200 speed, and the other a Barton 3200. These reviews ran 3DMark03,
and both ran the default 1024x768 benchmark at 3500 and 3950 respectively.
Another review with a P4 2.4 ran the bench at 3975. If I had to point a
finger somewhere, it would be at the ECS motherboard and associated chipset
drivers. Try benching it with 3DMark03 and see how it compares.

It want just a "here look at my benchmark" - but from the score it was
obvious that something is not right. That FSB is 266 BTW (The standard XP
2400 T'Bred FSB). My Bad for the confusion.

the latest driver release aint so good from nvidia. i use the 61.76 on my
gf fx5900xt (i know it aint the best but its good for what i use it for)
i'm running 512MB DDR333 which will soon be upgraded to DDR400 when i get
some cash but i get about 13000 in 3dmark2001 at default settings. even
with 4xAA it doesn't go below 10000. upgrade the processor so its on a
faster FSB (im not famiiliar with athlons so dont know how they work) and
the RAM to PC3200 and you should get a slight increase. but for quickness
downgrade to the 61.76 drivers.

Something ain't right.Did you have AA enabled?AA was disabled on mine which is
what most do I think.
My old system was in the mid 11k(11,490) range with a slower CPU but slightly
faster vid card.
The specs were
8kha+(KT266A)
1800+ [email protected](1690)?
512 M DDR
20GB 7200 rpm Maxtor (2mb) hd

Think its time for a new mobo The DDR400/PC3200 Memory is already on its
way from Crucial. Any suggestions for a good Socket A mobo with 400FSB
around 70UKP or less!


I vote NF7-S
