Windows 7: Why is my GTX680 benchmark so low?

Why is my GTX680 benchmark so low?

I just upgraded my system with a new mobo and cpu today.

For some reason when I use Heaven DX11 benchmark, it shows my gpu as the motherboard gpu and not my GTX 680. Also, the scores are much lower than someone with my same graphics card. I have updated my bios and installed the newest driver for my gtx680.


Here is my benchmark (left) and another is someone else with a similar system (right). Anyone know why my scores are so much lower?


SYSTEM SPECS:
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
MOBO: ASROCK Z77 Extreme 4
CPU: Intel i5 3570K 3.4 GHz
RAM: GSkill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 4x4GB = 16GB
GPU: EVGA GTX 680 FTW 4gb
HD: Western Digital 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache 6Gb/s
PSU: 850W
CASE: Cooler Master HAF 932 ADV BLUE ED
MONITOR: ASUS 27'' and Gateway 19'' (old flat screen hand-me-down)


THANKS!

Are you plugged directly into the card, or into the intel graphics on the mainboard.
My results in that specific app still tell me I have a intel 3k but it's giving me the numbers for my gtx580. (not too far off your card)

Check your UEFI setting that the PCIe slot is initialized first. I think it will be better if you use the DVI connector too.

Yes my monitors are plugged directly into the card and not the mobo.

Do I do that through the BIOS?

Yes, BIOS/UEFI, whichever you board has. Intel board also have, Virtu(?) which uses the on chip GPU and the card like an SLI or Crossfire setup, disable that.

UEFI IS your bios now.

Yes, the Primary graphics adapter is set to PCI express and not onboard.

I remember uninstalling that after I installed everything from the disk. Is there anything else I should do to disable it?

No, if you uninstalled it it's disabled, but I think it is part of UEFI and can't be uninstalled, just disabled.

download GPUz or CPUz and see what graphics they say you are using. Maybe Unigine is fouled up.

If you attached a USB drive formatted in FAT32 and press F12 while in UEFI, it takes a screen shot of what ever screen you're on.
