3DMark 2000 Variation
Am interested to know what variation you get in 3dmark 2000 scores (ie. run on same machine with no mods).
I run it (each test set to run 7 times) and get scores from 3486 to 3733. Is this normal??
Intel Celeron 700MHz with Abit BH6 motherboard
(clocked to 787MHz - FSB 75MHz)
128MB SDRAM (64MB PC100, 64MB PC133)
Geforce 2 MX (Asus V7100) (not clocked)
8.4GB UDMA/33 IBM Deskstar HDD
Internal modem (PCI56RVP), and extra LPT port on ISA card
I you might jsut be running low on memory - just an idea....
My scores for 3dMark2001 (under windows2000pro) on a dual P3-560Mhz (5x112Mhz) did vary quite a bit though: 2650 was the par, but it varied from 2500 to 2700 - try a fresh reboot between runs - that should even it out a bit...
Thanks for reply
Clean reboot was done every time (with nothing running in backgroud after startup). Memory settings set with cacheman v5. Will investigate memory further but there appears to be plenty free....
It's just normal variation. Depending on temp, and a few other things.
The problem gets big like it is with yours when you have the settings scaled down from the defualt like I think you might. Try it at the defualt settings (1024x768 32bit ect...). Your score should settle down around 2000 something. It will also allow you to benchmark against other PC's better (since a majority test at the defualts).
my bad. You are running at default! I thought you were usuing 2001 :o oops.
But like I said before it probably is just veryation.
Another option you have for up-ping performance is setting your jumpers to 100mhz. This SHOULD give you a 1.5 o/c'ed celeron at startup. With a very similar system except for an Elsa Mx400 card i got just over 3800.
