I just built this for a friend and the prized piece was the Radeon cause ive already went through all 3/4 generations of the Geforce and I was aching to test the Radeon.
I went ahead and benched the thing w/ 3dmark 2K and I got a measly 4500 3DMarks. What da heck? My P3-800 w/ a Geforce 2 GTS gets about 6600 3dmarks even with the better ram (Corsair 133 2-2-2-5). I have the P34VX which is essentially the same board as the CUV4X except for the Slot 1 and FCPGA socket.
So why is the Radeon so incredibly crappy compared to the Geforce 2 even with the Detonator 3 drivers. Doesnt make sense to me!!
I have installed the Via 4.03 Gart Drivers and stuff also I checked the Clockspeed of the Radeon and clocked it up to 183 cause it was only at 166 before. Even after this it didnt help and 3dmark was choppy compared to my system.
Any clue as to whats happening?
