    Yeah I remember there was a driver release that resulted in a massive jump in the Nature demo. I can't believe you remember the actual number though you big geek!

    But come on, how come no one has concurred that the music was absolutley awesome!

    Re: 3DMark2001SE memories.

    Hi guys. i don't know if this is a good score for my rig:

    I got 57361.

    E6750 OC to 3.31ghz
    ASUS EN8800GT 256MB
    1 gig X2 Ram

    For some reason 2001SE detected my CPU as 5.73ghz though..

    Pls give some comments..

    Re: 3DMark2001SE memories.

    Car high still drops under 60fps...... it seems to give simular results with a64 3400+ 2,4ghz with a x800xt pe vs 3,2ghz quad 1950pro, maybe its just not made to scale that well.

    Up to 3dmark05 i still used 01[thumbup]

    I have a very similar problem and I have an AMD Athlon 64 3800+.... it drops all the way down to 24-26FPS (if not a tad lower) when the car is hit but stays well above 60FPS for the rest of the test. I think it's a driver issue in full. Funny thing is, the issue goes away when I use Software T & L! It only drops to 40FPS then (though the average isn't about 105FPS but closer to 54FPS at that point).

    I have a somewhat similar problem to pour over in low detail, but then it's just a quick hiccup (which is dealt away with when Software T & L is used, but again, instead of the average being well above 300FPS [but under 400FPS], it's under 200FPS).

    A conundrum.
