    You'd hope that it'd scale well in a benchmark, tbf.

    Most instances of poor scaling in the real world are to do with bottlenecks with the CPU or VRAM bandwidth. Most instances of zero scaling are driver related.

    I've totally seen the light with regards to the flaws in throughput-based comparison, though. As such, I think 3Dmark, which only tests throughput (as opposed to latency), is kinda useless as anything other than e-peen.

    School, work, and family are the reasons why I haven't been able to post up any scores...

    I'm back to getting the "Steam is needed" error when trying any of the 64-bit options. I thought they said they fixed this?!

    I'm not planning on buying this one. So, the demo is all I'm interested in. It really isn't even that appealing to me to sit through it. The Unigine Benchmarks are much more pleasant to watch.

    I never said anything about buying this :p. You can simply download the non-paid version without needing to go through steam.

    Not really, no. You should be getting something more like this:

    Perhaps your system is overheating or something? Maybe start a thread about this in the hardware support area of the forum.

    I need to re-run my benchmarks using the 13.2 beta driver and my OC'ed settings. I'm know I could crack 165k and 17k respectively. I could hopefully also get 5.5k on Firestorm.

    The overheating comment was directed at SeanPatrick, not you, CDs. His 3570K and 7870 are trading blows with my significantly inferior hardware. They should be blowing my rig out of the water.

    I noticed that to. I have higher numbers with my PII 965 and 5870, you just beat me to it.

    Ok, Well I installed the new 13.2 beta driver and improved my scores, Is this more reasonable or do you still think there's a problem?

    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/304033

    Note that my processor clock is in the idle state at the moment (1.6 or so) ... Do you think changing the power options so it's always at it's oc'd 4.3 would make a diff? I assume it jumped up there during the test anyways.

    I know it wasn't directed at me. I was just posting my thoughts about my system. :p

    That's much better. No, don't bother turning off your low power states, they're fine as they are.
