Performance scores

I've just built a machine -i5 2500 Gigabyte GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 8Gb RAM and the thing is flyiing yet my score only comes up 4.2 whereas my Toshiba laptop is running 5.6 with a i5 430m @2.23Ghz dual core and 4Gb RAM.

My other desktop is also only 4.3 mind you it has a two core AMD Athlon II X2 245 @ 2.9Ghz 4Gb RAM on a Gigabyte GA-MA78MLT-S2 board.

I would have thought as I do not have much on the machine (new build) at the moment the score would have been more than the 4.2.

Am I doing something wrong or missed out something - perhaps this about right for the course of things?


Anyway gottta dash to the workhouse (to be able to buy more bits).

You're using integrated graphic on your desktop machine.
That's probably what's giving you a 4.2.

4.2 is not the average, just the number for the lowest link in your system.

Out of curiosity, what item are you getting the 4.2 on?

You may be doing something wrong.

Here are the scores on my machine with the same processor and motherboard. I have 4 GB of ordinary Crucial RAM and a Western Digital Caviar Black 640 GB hard drive, with integrated graphics.

Hmmmm

Yeh I think I must be in that case because I'm using a 1Tb Samsung Spinpoint (3Gbs) and 8Gb G Skill Ripjaws RAM.

Ummmm p5bdkw I am not sure of what you are referring to it is the same sort of screen shot that ingatzatstronic sent. I'll take a shot now and send.

Your gaming graphics are low compared to mine (4.6 versus 5.8). That shouldn't be. I suppose it could be due to your hard drive?

Look in Device Manager and locate display adapters. You should see Intel HD graphics family. Look at properties of the display adapter and post a picture of it. It should match mine below since we have the same motherboard.

The pic

Ignatzatsonic Heres that pic looks like the drivers a bit old doesn't it?? ooops!

Nope says it's up to date but obviously looking at it it can't be tried on line and in the machine.

Where else??

Yeah, too old. I assume you got it off the CD that came with the motherboard? It's generally better to get drivers direct from Intel or Gigabyte because they will likely be newer.

Replace it with the one at the bottom of this page at Gigabyte. The "Intel VGA driver". If that doesn't work, I think there is an even newer one at Intel.

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.1)

I assume you are using Windows 7 64 bit. If not, don't get the above driver.

Edit:

I think this is the latest one from Intel, but I would try the above one from Gigabyte first.

You might also run this Intel utility which will sniff your system and make recommendations on anything you should update:

OOps

Have downloaded the Intel one and now the whole screen is HUGE - can't even fit the view pane in a 24" screen.

Have set the icons to the smallest size lowest resolution and it's all a bit of a mess really - I did get a blue screen after the Intel downlaod if that has anything to do with it?

Cripes what have I done??

It was the resolution - set to the lowest setting - hell I thought I had cooked it that time

Change your resolution.

Go to control panel and look for Intel HD graphics and open it up and look for the resolution setting. Change it to something that fits your screen.

If that fails, try the driver at Gigabyte that I mentioned above.

When you have that sobered up, re-run that Windows test to see if gaming graphics improved.

Also run that Intel Driver Update Utility.
