Is this is corect GB RADEON 9600

You should be getting around 12,000-13,000 3dMarks with that setup in 3dMark 2k1. I would take a good look at what your video is set at, what drivers are loaded, what processes are currently running on your system when you benchmark, ensure that your AGP is set to 4X or 8X, and check to see you have right fsb/cpu speeds.

Getting only that many is definitely a sign that something isn't configured correctly.

Best of Luck on troubleshooting!

I'd expect more around the neighborhood of 10,000 to 11,000 3dmarks in 3dMark 2001SE. And at least 2000 in 3dMark 2003.

Hard to say what the problem is though. First off, I'd make sure that antialiassing and anistropic filtering are turned off in the display settings.

Also make sure you have no programs running in the background, like kazaa and whatnot.

What resolution are you running the test at?

Make sure it's set to default.

Publish a run and then we can get a better idea of what's going on.

Your 3Dmk03 score is also low.

EDIT: Upon closer inspection this appears to be an R9600<font color=red><b>SE</b></font color=red>. So your 3Dmk03 scores are about right, now as for 3Dmk01 I'm not sure, but it does look about right (I've seen about 5000 for an XP2000+).

i don't think a 9600 <b>no pro</b> could hit 10000 in 3dmark2001se, it's weaker than a 9100 or 8500 in DX8.1, right? :smile:
plus, his ram is running at 378 instead of 400Mhz, making things worse
but then yeah, at least 2000 in 3dmark03
 
Nah it's an <b>SE</b> not an R9600non-pro.

The R9600 would do fine, and close to 10k in 2001 (remember it's heavily system dependant).

But under 2000 in 3Dmk02 is about right for the SE (only 64 bit memory on top of it being so slow).

SE?
yeah, I just went to that site, looks like it's really an SE
hm..then I've underestimated a R9600np..
cuz Radeon9600Pro could hit around 11k in 3Dmark2001, then I thought, since the 9600np is being slower (Core being 75Mhz less and memory being 100Mhz less), that's why I think it might not be able to hit 10k :tongue:
 
Oh with his system an R9600Pro should be able to easily top 12K. My R9600P breaches 10.5K and he's got a much better CPU and lilkely his mem runs quicker (despite mine being better it runs best at DDR333 with the KT400. I think it would even out with the reliance of 3Dmk01 on system speed.

I suspect that an R9600 on that rig would be brushing up against 10K if not over it. But we'll never know.

As a rule of thumb, never buy a video card with passive cooling. You'd be better off compiling the data by hand (jk).

Hmmm, did u update all drivers? (esp VIA) and turn to performance on the various taps on the ati drivers?

I have a non-pro 9600 from ati and I got ~8500 in 3dmark 2001se and ~2500 on 03. All stock speed (324 core, 202 mem) if I OC to (420/236) I could hit ~10100 in 01 and ~3000 in 03.

If all drivers are updated I suggest u tune some stuff from the bios.

You will get nothing more. Unfortuntely you have a Radeon 9600<b>SE</b> which has half the memory bandwidth due to it's 64bit (instead of 128bit) pathway.
