My friend has a Intel Core2 Quad Q9550. His 3mark vantage score was like 10000p. The strange thing was he said his cpu score was a little above 55000. Which is faster than any cpu score ever submitted. I found this to be crazy considering he has a 2 year old processor. I wasn't there in person so I couldn't see it for my self. He sent me the 3dr file and I submitted it. His score seemed to be legit. It was set on performance but could any other settings affect this score. Am I missing something?
