319 Out Of My Nvidia Geforce Fx 5200!


Recommended Posts

in a way it doesnt really make the ptistop test fair or accurate in that regard, cuz i got over 2000 pit score with my old 5950 and with my 6800 its down to 18xx so by a score standard its showing i have less performance when i actually have more, i think they should remove 2d testing and make somekind of basic 3d testing

it IS a pos system, but it does work for WoW and UT2004 rather nicely, suprisingly

 

edit:its sad when i overclock and get a worse score

 

and btw, i can get no where near that clock speed on my card

 

 

a little bit better turned to classic windows mode with 16bit colors

Most of the video scores that are high are high end systems. From my experience,

after installing a more powerfull cpu and high end system memory, my video score went up much higher. It all works together!

For example: I could not put my 5700 Ultra in a system with an Athlon XP 2000+

with DDR 2700 and crank out 685mp/s like I can with this system with DDR 400 and Athlon XP 3200+.

 

But as others have stated 2D performance is not a total measuement of actuall viedeo card performance. As too the validity of 2D performance is unknown.

I have two older PIII tualatin/celeron (the 100fsb/256cache) computers that run Fx5200 video cards.

 

they are nice for old games that my PIV will not run and both will run anything that the PIV will (I mean to say it is playable not to imply that 4 year old PIII chips run games as well as a brand new PIV) I play a lot of lan and internet games with my kid when he comes to visit.

How did you guys get such a high score for the GeForce FX 5200? I have the exact same card, but I can only get up to 64 score, when the average seems to be about 122 :(

 

Any suggestions? :)

have you tried any other drivers, theres many to choose from here theres also a modified drivers section somewhere there too, if that doesnt work i'd take it back :P

That's great for an older P III!

Hi GaryKing! Try this first before putting new drivers in:

right click my computer>properties>advanced>Under performance options> visual effects>click on adjust for best performance, and make sure all the boxes are unchecked and click ok! Now under system properties click on hardware!

Device manager> click onto display adaptors> click on to the model of your video card>click on driver>click onupdate driver and follow instructions.

You may have to reboot afterwards.

Next got to control panel> display>under display properties>click on appearance> click on Windows classic style.

Set your resolution as high as you can and re-test in 16bit.

do not worry about your score. provided your computer is 90% or better of the data base I wouldnt worry about it. p/c pitstop is a very nice place to learn about tweaking your computer and to see if it is running up to par. It is also a nice place to test your internet connection as well as test for spyware or a virus. This site is probably the handiest place I have ever seen, that said..........it however is by no means a bench mark.

 

 

my old PIIIs cpus score 4,800-4,900 which is fine and dandy and does give some insight as to how well they may perform, but again it is not a bench mark. My friend has a PIV prescott socket 478 3.2Ghz computer and his chip only scores a 4,500........... if you were to judge my PIIIs [email protected] and [email protected] vs my friends 3.2Ghz by this test.........well my old PIIIs would be better right? I doubt it because when running the same games his fps are 2-3x higher than my PIIIs. I am running better video cards than he is and I also have more ram.....he has 512mb and my old PIIIs have 1,536Mbs.

Well my 5200 Ultra was scoring over 500 in the pit and my new 6600 GT is scoring just over 300 in the pit.... However 3dmark05 on 5200 was 376 points and my 6600GT scored 3279 and plays halflife 2 alot better than my 5200 Ultra.

i really like the passmark 5.0 tool, mainly cuz of how its comparison graph is, makes it easy to save/retest then compare side by side benchmarks, i'd like to see more of that type of comparison chart with others
