It's CPU physics, I think, so isn't based on your GPU.
CPU? I have a good CPU, AMD 1090T. Is that what's bringing it down?
If your CPU can't handle or process certain features you're score won't registor it. All CPU's have instruction sets they can or can't do depending on who manufactured them - AMD or Intel, or when they were made - new gen/old gen.

If you look at the list of instructions on your CPU you'll see there are some things it can or can't process. Here's an example on my CPU's instruction set using AIDA64 (formally known as Everest). This is on an Intel Core i7-950 Processor

You score is based on those instructions, and the strength of the CPU.

Thanks for the reply, You'll have to forgive me for my ignorance as I'm not as knowledgeable at tech speak as I would like to be. Are you just saying that my chip is old or not as good to get a better score? I was under the impression that it was up there in terms of quality

I'm saying not all chips will have all instruction features in them. Some by design - AMD vs Intel, some by generation - old(er) vs new(er).

You also have to keep in mind the performance built into the chip. I don't know much about AMD but I'm sure your CPU isn't the top chip in the company's lineup.

I have an Intel Core i7-950 and it's 4 chips below the top class i7-990x. If I had that chip, my scores would increase dramatically so.....

The score you have reflects the strength of your chip, it doesn't mean it's a bad chip, it's just saying based on performance this is the score we give.

Realtime physics is a very intensive thing on a CPU.

Sorry, just noticed - I ran the GPU only tests. Time saving measure more than anything.

Here's a 3DMark 11 score I've just got.

Think it's just my processor holding it back while it's at stock speeds. Wanna get some better cooling before doing some overclocking on it. The cooler I have now is only just keeping the temps down at stock speed.

Does a i7 make that much difference in these scores?

You'd get a bit of a difference, but not a massive one.

Here's IOwnAMoneyPit's result with his i7 2600k and GTX570: https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ml#post1336453

Only higher score you'd get with an i7 is the physics score, and the i7 2600k in that one has double the score of your 9650.

You may actually see a difference in terms of raw power, not so much between say an i7 and a dual core processor. Basically 3.5gig is 3.5gig, no matter the processor.

Now, if you look at a PCMark Vantage where both processor and GPU is looked at, there you may see a differences between say an i7 and a dual core processor, even at same speeds.

3DMark Vantage is GPU intensive, whereas PCMark Vantage is both GPU and CPU intensive. Of course PCMark looks at the entire PC.

My understanding.

Edit: BTW here's my score in Performance Mode..... Result

Seems I dropped 10 points from my last test the first week of April - Result
