I'm sure setting the smp core to high priority will kill all cpu performance. Though someone with an fx5200 stands the best chance i think

Edit - and having checked the current top 10 they are pretty much all fx5200's

Moved some wires around in my case and I must have dislodged my water block a little. When I booted up it seemed fine and then a color bar flash and all was black...

needs to be dx9 caperble to get a score, i believe the fx5200 could do dx9 in name only hence why the benches can be so low

Talking

Guys, it is surprisingly hard to get under 10 points, but try for yourself


I got score 6 3DMarks 2005 now!

Samxon caps rule! Now testing 4Mhz for core...

Abit BX133-Raid, VIA C3 Nehemiah 66 x 9
Gigabite(?) FX5200 8/50Mhz ( thread about the card used to take this score )

http://img454.imageshack.us/img454/4...0mhzfv1.th.jpg

3DMark 2005 6 3D marks / 8 CPU marks, GPU at 8/50
http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=2985939
(link get invalid as soon, as I post better score )


If someone dig anywhere a VIA C3 Nehemiah 1000Mhz one for me and I get the better/bigger polymers, I might be able to score the ultimate ZERO score :biggrin: :wink: But the run probably took like 16 hours... or more, lol.

Oh, 4Mhz GPU end up in BSOD... What about 5Mhz then?

It seems that they will catch on tho this "cheating". I think they would be looking for the lowest actual score, not under clocked or tweaked score.

Well, the lowest score by any means - just WHQL approved drivers, in witch I fail even I use WHQL drivers... 3DMark does not detected it as WHQL, so...

Let's see if I have this straight. They are looking for the fastest card con-figs out there, so they can replace them.... Sounds like a Republican tax plan.":O}
