Low benchmark scores on CPU & HDD - Is my HDD poo?

Q: Low benchmark scores on CPU & HDD - Is my HDD poo?

Hey all,
Just built a new comp and I thought this thing would scream but I'm only getting a whimper

AMD FX-62 Dual Core CPU
1.0 GB DDR2 PC3200 (I believe its 3200)
ASUS M2A-VM-HDMI Motherboard
Ultra X-Connect Titanium w/ UV Blue 500Watt ATX PSU
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB Hard Drive (Serial ATA II, 7,200 RPM, 8MB)
Haven't done the video card yet
This thing should move like lightning right?

Something about this thing is mega slow to load programs and such.
I just used CrystalMark to get some Benchmark scores and my CPU ranked a bit lower than an AMD FX-60 (19442 vs. 25188) but my HDD was piss poor with a score of 4738 vs others out there ranking between 2 and 4 MILLION!!
Now my HDD is in a constant churning state, ya know always sounds like its struggling and grinding away when running programs especially ones like adaware or spybot that scan, not super loud but it bugs me. Is this an indication that is a piece of junk?

Is there any other way to determine if its is my HDD that is the weakest link in my new computer besides getting another and popping it in and are there any other good benchmark programs out there that can confirm this for me. Also, why would my CPU be scoring lower than a lower model? Maybe its just that CrystalMark isn't reliable.
Also, I'm running some EMSA Disk Check Program right now to try that out and see what happens

Preferred Solution: Low benchmark scores on CPU & HDD - Is my HDD poo?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I dont know what is wrong with my computer but recently i ran aquamark3 and 3dmark 2003 and in aquamark i scored a low 21,000 and in 3dmark2003 i scored a low 2,500
yet i am running a intel p4 2.8 ghz 800 fsb ht oced at 3.6
512 mb 3200 hyperx ddr
visiontek 9600
Asus p800s
i know its not the ram because i tested it with prime95

A:Low Benchmark Scores

i think it is either the motherboard or videocard because i know that the visointek 9600 is underclocked at 324 mhz core and 202.5 memory but can it really make that much of a difference because people with the same ram, similiar video card and processor have scored in the 30,000- 40,000 range yet i can barely score 20,000

I recently purchased a Dell Precision 5520 with the following hardware: i7-7820HQ, 32GB RAM, M.2 PCIE 512GB, Quadro M1200. I noticed performance issues with the laptop - simple things like a lag sometimes between when I typed on the keyboard and when things actually appeared on screen. Generally slow performance with simple tools like PgAdmin, etc. Subsequently, I ran benchmark tests (PassMark, Geekbench, and others) and I find that my CPU scores are dismal - about a 1/4 of what they should be. I did a couple of things to isolate the problem: (1) updated the bios and switched off sidestep, (2) complete reformat and reinstall of the latest recovery image from Dell, (3) all windows 10 updates and driver updates through command center, (4) configured power option in Windows to "High Performance" and plugged in the a/c adapter, (5) removed all peripherals - basically back to stock, out-of-the-box factory image except the Intel Sidestep setting in the bios. Again, no improvement - low CPU benchmark scores (Passmark CPU score - 2424). See attached image for details. I'm not sure what else to do? Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Hi!I'm a pretty new gaming notebook owner, as i got a really screaming good deal on a y530 (8750h/1060-6gb/16gb/512ssd/144hz). Im currently trying out some recommendations from the internet like undervolting the CPU and having the power limit at 50W (CPU) and im currently getting 2678 points in cinebench r20, and the cpu is sitting comfortably at 70-72 degrees C at full load. (-0,150v undervolt) Is this good or is there something else i should change?

I put a new processor in a computer here at work yesterday. Previously, the computer had a K6/233, and I replaced it with a K6-2/300.

I was surprised to note that the benchmark scores (I used WinTune for the Benchmark test) for the new, "faster" processor were lower than the "slower" one

CPU Integer................... -2%
CPU Floating Point............ +29%
2D Video...................... +2%
Direct 3D..................... +12%
Open GL....................... -15%
Memory........................ -38%
Cached Disk................... +18%
Uncached Disk................. +1%

So what's going on here? Why would the CPU Integer and memory transfer scores go down with the new processor? Did I missed a configuration in the BIOS, or could this processor just not be suited for the motherboard? Specifications on the motherboard are at: http://www.qdigrp.com/eng/products/tx1bp.htm

Thanks for any insight, as this is rather perplexing to me.

A:Benchmark Scores Lower w/ Faster Processor?

You may need to check the version of the bios to ensure that it supports this chip.

I'll start off with mine. The first image is my score, using the default settings, and the second is with all applicable settings maxed out.

I was surprised to see here that the Intel Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz processor benchmark scores are lower than the AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.80 GHz processor benchmark scores.

I recently resurrected and upgraded 2 older desktops.

Both have 2 GB DDR PC2700 RAM and have an UDMA/ATA100 7200 rpm hard drive and have the same antivirus program running.

The Intel processor has a 533 MHz FSB and the AMD processor has an 800 MHz FSB.

The desktop with the AMD processor appears to be the faster and more snappier of the two.

Is the higher FSB of the AMD processor the deciding factor, or is it something else?

Are areas other than RAM affected (score wise on the WEI assessment) by the amount of RAM you have?

I had an A42JV notebook with 4gb, but it had some issues and I traded it in for K42JV which only has 2 GB. The processor and GPU are the same, yet now my Windows experience score for Aero Performance is 3.9 (Intel HD). It was 4.2 with the other notebook.

Could the difference possible be due to having 2GB instead of 4GB now...Or could it possibly be due to a different motherboard or a different Intel HD?

Also I see people with the same processor scoring 6.7 (i5 450) for the processor score, yet I'm scoring 6.2... What could account for the difference? Motherboard?

Thanks much for any answers...

A:Windows 7 experience scores...Does RAM affect other scores?

You will see a performance boost by having more memory. Having less memory will affect your Aero performance.
Processors will vary slightly in speed. Also, the processor is going through your mobo.

I have 2x2GB of DDR3 1600mhz memory installed on my machine.

My WEI score is only 5.9. Can anyone help me understand why this is low?

You can see my system specs below.

A:WEI Scores

I am wondering if it's running at 1600 Mhz. Have you set it in your BIOS? That may be an issue. Some boards you will have to set the speed in the BIOS.

You can check CPUz memory tab to see if you're running at 1600.

Dual channel will be 800(X2=1600) and triple channel will be 533 (533X3=1600)

If it's running at 1600, it's probably just the WEI...I would not put too much faith into it.

I am curious what the AMD CPU's are getting.
Currently I score 5.9 with my FX-60 at 2.8GHZ.
I am wanting to upgrade.......
I am getting 7.9 on my AGP but the FX-60 and the amout of ram I can use I think is maxed out.
I can only do 1GB per slot.

I was looking at the X2-6400 for 130$ and I would like to know what it scores.
I see the 6000+ at 5.9, thats not a huge increase for me to shell out for new ram, mobo and CPU and video card.
I'm confused on what CPU to get, Intel or AMD.

I want fast at everything, but particularly games.

3Dmark06 ran with no problems on x32 but i had quite a few hickups running it on the x64. Nothing major but it was obvious W7 x64 didnt like it.

Also, nVidia Controll panel isnt too fond of W7 x32 or x64. Enabling SLI took a couple trys and black outs to enable.

I felt it was a little laggy running W7.

This has been my experience with just about every game in W7 thus far. They lag behind in speed compared to playing them in XP.

All Microsoft had to do was update XP with DirectX 11 and it would've made a killer gaming platform. But instead it seems like they are going to kill PC gaming in favor of their Xbox.

I recently reformatted my computer, installed all the drivers and everything. Everything looked good.

I started playing some games, Call of Duty, Team Fortress and my FPS was way down from what I remembered so I installed 3dmark Advantage.

I have a 8800gts, q6600, 2gb RAM and yet im getting a combined score of about 3000. My video card gets about 3000 and my CPU is getting in the low 2000s. Compared to other people's scores, this is VERY low and very odd.

Nothing is overheating, no viruses or spyware slowing the computer down. Its just been reformatted

I tried installing several different drivers 175.19, 175.16 and some of the older ones and none of them work any better.

This is all pretty odd, any suggestions?

I would have thought as I do not have much on the machine (new build) at the moment the score would have been more than the 4.2.

Am I doing something wrong or missed out something - perhaps this about right for the course of things?

Windows Vista
The pre-installed games on the PC and installed games no longer keep up to date scores. Ex: If PC says I have played solitaire 50 times then I play it 10 times today, the next time I turn it on it does not register those games played, it still says 50. Other games do not keep a running score, always start me back at the same game level and old score of some previous time. I think someone here must have unknowingly changed some settings or something cause I never had this problem before. Anyone understand what I am talking about?

A:saving scores

If you had XP I would suggest

Start > Control Panel > Add/remove programs > Add/remove Windows components > go into Accessories, uncheck games, click ok, then doing it all again and rechecking games.

Maybe it's similar enough in vista to if you wanted to give it a shot.

I just built a gaming rig over the weekend and I am shocked at how low my MadOnion 2001 SE scores are. Mind you this system is in no way overclocked.

I am not a super expert or anything but could you look at my system specs and offer an opinion as to whether these scores seem reasonable?

I ran the standard bmark for 2001SE.

Gainward Geforce 4 Ti4200 64mb (40.52's)
SB Live 5.1 Digital
WXP sp1

I have mostly standard settings in the Bios of the MOBO, I have the Vsync disabled in D3d as OGL.

Comparing my scores to others I am outperformed in the main tests pretty soundly.

I am really baffled. My prior system was a 98SE, 10GB 5400, 256 PC133, SB Live 5.1, ABit Kt7, Geforce 3 Ti200 and I scored only 1000pts lower.

I would greatly appreciate your input. I would hate to think that my $800 investment only got me a 20% performance increase.

Company settles 'spyware' lawsuit for $7.5 mlnWed Jun 15, 2005 08:13 AM ET SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Intermix Media Inc. has agreed to pay the state of New York $7.5 million to settle a lawsuit charging it with bundling hidden "spyware" along with millions of programs it gave away for free, the company said on Tuesday. The company also said it would permanently discontinue distribution of its adware, redirect and tool bar programs, all of which Intermix noted it has previously stopped distributing. Intermix said it did not admit any wrongdoing or liability. Intermix shares rose $1.50, or 24.6 percent, to $7.60 in after-hours trading on Inet following the news. The settlement deal follows New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's April lawsuit charging that the company's practice of bundling hidden spyware violated state laws prohibiting false advertising and deceptive business practices. It also came as the company on Tuesday posted a fourth quarter net loss of $409,000 compared with a loss of $4.4 million a year ago. Revenue rose to $24.1 million from $14.4 million, boosted by gains at its Alena business unit and network segment. Full Read @ Reuters

Hey all,

Athlon XP 2500 Barton
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB
768 MD DDR 2700 RAM
Maxtor HD 36 GB 7200RPM
Gigabyte GA-7VAX KT400 Chipset

Just ran 3dMark 05 (free version) for the second time and I got a score of 1889. Before that it was a score of about 1100. Considering my specs I'm thinking that these are a bit low.
I've updated the graphics card, installed DX 9.0c, and even defragged my hard drive. Also installed those new Via 4 in 1 drivers. I'm guessing doing all of that is what bumped my score up a bit, but again, it still seems low.

Any ideas on how to get this score a lil higher. With HL2 coming out soon (hopefully) I'm trying to tweak this bad boy as well as possible.

A:Organising High Scores

Here are a couple of ideas:



Or you could cheat a little, add a listbox with .Sorted = True and fill it with the numbers, you will need to pad them with zeros so that for example 9,15,137,1057 are added as 0009,0015,0137,1057 so that they get sorted properly.

My friend and i have same graphic cards. the 8600 GT. the thing is he has a laptop and i have a computer. but somehow he has better index scores in the " desktop performance for windows aero" thing
why is that?

A:Same graphic cards different scores

A lot also depends on the system hardware of the two machines. Without the specifications of your friend's machine, it would be difficult to ascertain the reason for the difference in WEI scores. It would also help if you could include these scores as well. To start off, make sure that you have the latest graphics card driver installed (link provided to the latest WHQL driver for your convenience).

Hey all, i just bought a geforce 7800gtx and i ran 3d mark and i'm getting scores of 5000.

I have looked online and people with my same rig are getting around 7000 and higher. I installed the latests video drivers (twice) and have directx running as well. I couldn't find the d/l for SP2 on microsoft so i didn't worry about that.

My rig is

Athlon64 X2 4200
Msi NX 7800GTX
Corsair 2G (2x1g)
80gig hd
Sound Blaster adigy 2 ZS

The case i have is a Xaser III Lanfire case from thermaltake. It comes with a 420W psu (nvidia says you need a 350 for the 7800).Any suggestion on why my score is so horribly low. I havn't really went into the bios because i'm not sure as far as the video options go.I even unplugged some of the fans in my case to see if it would give more power to the GPU but i don't think it helped at all. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I tried to place some screenshots but they're too big even in .jpg format.

According to 3dmark this is what it says :

A:PLZ Help 7800GTX low 3dmark scores :(

Never mind everyone, i updated the bios and it fixed the problem. 3dmark was originally saying i only had a total of 128 kb of cache but when i updated my mobo drivers it found the remaining cache, thanks everyone !

Right this will make you laugh?

My cpu scored 1679 points in 3dmark06 with 1gig of ram (twin 512 sticks)
I had 1.5gig then I took a stick out to test performance with Everest inspection programme...

WOW! What a difference it made my data transfer rate tripled with the 2 sticks in. I would never have known anything about it until I had checked my specs and performance against benchmarks of similar models..

The third stick was eiher faulty or just a confusing factor for the cpu and or mobo...

ALSO is that a reasonable score for a CPU test on this new version?

AMD64 dual core 4200+ standard clock speeds just got tweaked ram timings..

CPU @ 2200mghz... ram @ 400 (3 3 3 8) 3.9us @200mz

A:3DMark 06 Scores... and ram sticks?

Your memory is now running in Dual Channel mode, you can download CPU-Z to confirm it.

3DMark06 gives you a bonus for using a dual core CPU. I get a CPU score of about 800 with a 3200+ at stock (2000MHz).

I ran 3dMark06 today and scored... 3416.

My computer setup is as such:

PentiumD920 [email protected]
XFX 7600GT
3Gb DDR2-Not Sure, probably the lowest speed DDR2
Asus P5WD2 Motherboard

So I'm curious, is my hardware just outdated or should be able to score higher and something is wrong?


A:3dMark06 scores seem horrendously low

That score looks about right. With a 7800GS+ AGP (7900GT with lower clocks) and a single core CPU (Athlon 64 3200+), I got a score of 3711, which consisted of:

SM 2.0 1741
SM 3.0 1746
CPU 807

A magazine benchmark using a Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.15 and an MSI 7600GT (560/1400) scored 3399 at defaults.

Well couldnt find a thread with any ATI X1900XTX 3DMARK benchmarks so decided to make one myself.

Pentium 4 3.06 GHZ
PC4300(266 MHz) 512 DDR2
Sappihre ATI X1900XTX stock - Core speed 499.50 Memory speed 594.00

3DMark 2005 v1.2.0
Score 6431


I think my score is bad (any tips on improving it). Please do share yours.

Softwares used -
3DMARK 2005 v 1.2.0
CPU-Z v1.33.1
IrfanView (for screenshot)

A:ATI X1900XTX 3DMARK Scores

I think that's pretty good. I only got 4885 3Dmarks
I think you could do with more RAM though, I think that'd make a difference for you. I've got a 6800gt here and my cpu-z info is here
The second set of tests nearly gave my pc a heart attack!

Well I have never really been into the video benchmarking thing to much, but in light of my new video card situation i decided to play a little bit and see what i came up with. I have 2 7600GT's in SLI. However I really dont know how good the performance is in the scheme of things. I know i should check the project comparison guide on the 3Dmark homepage but them guys on there from what i heard like to doctor things up, do tricks to get higher scores ect ect. I dont want to feel discuraged if I have a low score LoL Im damn excited about this new system LoL.

Here are my 3dmark Scores. Keep in mind i didnt "prep" my system like restarting, halting all processes, getting rid of the desktop background ect ect. I just downloaded them and ran the dang things right in a row.

3DmarkO3 Score: 22248

3Dmark05 Score: 10347

3Dmark06 Score: 5771

Even though I dont know how good these scores are I will definatly tell you that SLI is really worth it. In FEAR and a few other games that I play my performance didnt just improove with the second card it doubled. And to tell you the truth with just one card my FPS performance was pretty good at maximun settings

A:Good 3DMark Scores ?

I would compare your scores with similar machines online. Register at futuremark. I have not heard anything about people faking scores.

Hello all...

Bought a video from my last thread and now that I have it installed <Asylum GeForce FX 5700 ultra>, I've ran 3Dmark twice now and they are close as to the #'s., But something doesn't seem right watching the video's for the tests. Last card was a GeForce 2 mx 400, so I expected some great things, But for some reason I don't feel so good about it...lol

Can someone give me some tips, or settings or even if I have to have the Nvidia desktop running to make it work better...? lol

Drivers Are up to date on video/audio, everything else, (mobo,chip) pretty much no.

I also thought I could get a score or frame rate from playing my own game (desert combat), but it only runs its own..??

Thanks for the help..................

Have a great day................:rolleyes:

A:Help interpret My 3Dmark03 scores....please

Looks fine for a 5700. I get ~5600 with a 9800 Pro.

3dMark03 tests the video card and not much else. If you want higher scores, you have to get a better video card.

I don't know how much that 5700 cost you, but slap yourself if you paid ~$150 because a 9600XT/Pro costs that much.
