Why such a low score in Everest?


Recommended Posts

Anyway, I've noticed that my scores in Everest was a lot lower than it should be for a very long time, ever since I started using it. However, it didn't bother me then, because I thought the program could be buggy. But is that possible? Other people seem to be getting normal scores. Here is a typical score for my FX-55.

My write scores are terrible too, around 1800MB/s.

 

My scores in PCMark and SiSoft Sandra 2005 are all where they should be though. I find this very perplexing.

 

Thanks for all help.

these scores are for memory, and cpu mhz will only affect it slighytly. What is your HTT at? Are you using a divider on your ram? What is your end ram frequency

 

EDIT: It shows your ram frequency right there, at pc3400. This is why. You'll need to get your ram up to atleast its rated speed of ddr500 (or PC4000), or atleast higher than pc3400, in order to see an improvement here. Maybe your divider is set too low?

So those included scores in everest ARE overclocked, FSB wise?

 

They aren't stock scores?

 

I don't get it. Look at the Athlon 64 3800+ score, for example. It's only running at PC3200 speed. I'm running at PC3400 with an overclocked FX-55, and probably faster timings. Yet I'm behind?

I just set my HTT to 250, RAM to 1/01, HTT Transport to 4, and multiplier to 10. CPU= 2500MHz.

 

Here is my score:

It's a lot higher. But still, that Athlon 64 3800+ is scoring so high with just PC3200 ram? Does that mean if it was using PC4000 ram like me, it'd score way higher than what I'm scoring now, since it scores higher than me at stock speed using slower ram?

 

I'm very confused.

 

Thanks again.

well, sort of. You can run 210*13=2730, your ram on 1:1 will be 210

Or you can run 273*10=2730 (same cpu mhz), your ram on 1:1 will be at 273

Or you can run 303*9=2727 (about same cpu), your ram on 1:1 will be 303

 

It's still not higher than the HTT (and never will be), but by using a lower cpu multi, you can achieve the same cpu mhz, but higher memory mhz.

 

As far as judging your results against what they say, I don't know if the systems they compare to are OC or not. Those are all just very rough estimates I'm sure.

 

Getting your HTT to 250 so that your memory is at stock and using a lower multi to achieve the same stock cpu mhz, is in no way overclocking your system.

For this test it all depends on the memory frequency (ie HTT). Your cpu, and the memory timings play a small part.

 

It all depends on what their HTT was set at when they ran those tests. That is IF they even ran those tests, and didn't just throw rough estimates up for people to look at.

 

If they were overclocking, then some pc3200 ram can go higher than your pc4000 ram!!

Note: If you up your HTT any more than you need to set your LDT/HTT multi to x3, and this is in no way, a bad thing to have to do. Too low has very little if any side affects, but just slightly over has been known to cause all sorts of weirdness.

Oh okay. Thanks!

 

I just got 6900MB/s with my CPU at 2750MHz. I'm pleased with it, I guess. I searched for "Everest score" and found a thread here on that, and this guy with right around the same speed as I am, CPU and HTT, scored 7200MB/s. A good 300MB/s faster. Granted, his timings were way lower than mine (1.5-5-2-2 as opposed to 2.5-7-4-4), but do they playa big part in how much bandwidth one gets?

 

Thanks again.
