I ran X2 earlier heres the results @ 545/560:

1024x768 no AA or AF = 135fps
1024x768 6XAA 16XAF = 117fps

Thats less than a 15% drop in performance with max AA and AF!!! Stock speeds its not so good.

1024x768 no aa or af = 129fps
max AA and AF = 106fps

Thats close to a 20% drop in performance.

Sweet... That's just sweet

BTW in X2, my card keeps lagging even at 1024/768, especially in Argon Prime and Omicron Lyrae, i don't know why, i have about 80 Medium Novas patrolling Argon Prime, and about 15 destroyers in Omicron Lyrae. Do you think that's video card problem? Or not enough ram?

Its the engine. Its very slow even on high end rigs and lags quite a bit. More ram helps especially video ram....

Speedy are you good at that game? If you are plz help, i'm trying to find a way to tell my ships to use jumpdrives to get to the Khaak sectors, because i can't win with a single destroyer, but i don't think the game allows me, do you know a script that'll allow that?

Oh well, i gotta find a way to destroy the khaak homeworld. A single Teladi Phoenix just isn't gonna do the job, right now i'm sooo busy with the Xenons, i've invaded the Xenon Sector 347, now they're pissed, launching destroyer and carrier attacks at me. They've wiped out Black Hole Sun already!!

I think I will do a fresh install and a full proper test on the drivers that came with the card as they were very fast in 2001se. But that will have to wait until my new HD arrives as a format will make me lose some valuable data and my backup is full.

I should get over 27k with a fresh install and those drivers. Oh and I just tweaked the bios and got an extra 16 points. =)

i think 16 points is well within the margin of error, for 3dmark2001 =)



but yea, after a good format and some tweaking you should be able to hit 30k

wow.. 30,000 points LOL! jesus thats insane. imagine what the x800XT can do

Shouldn't that read, just bragging! B@$T@RD! :tongue:

What you get bored with playing with it!?! :lol:

Nice scores. Try thrdribl too and see if you can max everything out with good frames.

<b>EDIT</b>: BTW, if it's 2004 in that game, why is Villeneuve still in the BAR?!? :evil:

Did you hear he might be back with BMW-Williams?
Gonna watch this weekend?

Anywhoo, once again nice card ya' Poncey Bashturd! :cool:
