I just got 3dmark vantage, and when i view my results, it says im running windows vista. I also see that when i click on the system info option in the program. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit). Any idea why I keep showing as vista? I see on the site other scores displaying windows 7...
the nvidia control panel detects it as SLI enabled, and device manager shows both the cards. is there any way to detect if SLI is truly working?
also, i turned off physx and my scores dropped all around. my CPU scores were cut in half when i turned it off, my graphics score lowered a bit as well. I turned it back on and it went back up... but my graphics score is still the same... cant get it up to the 45k area.
Also, i havent overclocked the CPU, or the GPUs yet. Would the stock speeds on the GPU really hold it back this much???

thanks for the link to that program. i ran the program, and i see the graph on screen when i run vantage. when the fps drops during the tests the graph lowers too, but its always even on both ends. that normal?
i tried different SLI modes in nhancer for vantage, the score is still about the same either way. any idea why this is happening? Could it at all be tied to my original question? why do my results show my system as windows vista when i am running windows 7 ultimate (64bit)?
The bar works by how much work load the sli is doing. So that is why it moves up and down depending on how hard it is running the app.
I just gave the app so you could use the bar, the tweaking is better to do it in the nvidia control panel. What motherboard are you running and have you installed the latest chipset drivers for that board?
As far as it showing "vista" instead of the "windows 7" it could be something stuck in the vantage temp folder. But hopefully they will help you on it.
