BNP replied to BNP's topic in Novabench Issues, Features, QuestionsHey Nathan, thank you for yoyour response! :smile: I think I've found the reason for the big range between GPU scores and, I think, it's due to the "OPTIMUS" function. When I docked the machine (and by that forcing it's dedicated GPU to work) the GPU score raised up to 171. It can probably clock itself even higher when needed. So my current conclusion is that the "OPTIMUS" somehow distorts the benchmark's GPU score even tough it clearly recognizes it . Here are the new scores (incase someone is interested): Verified NovaBench Score: 1281 Test run on June 20, 2014 Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center Intel Core i7-3940XM 3.00GHz running at 3201 MHz NVIDIA Quadro K2000M GPU 16203 MB System RAM (Score: 247) - RAM Speed: 14162 MB/s CPU Tests (Score: 810) - Floating Point Operations/Second: 205939368 - Integer Operations/Second: 931452056 - MD5 Hashes Generated/Second: 1335107 Graphics Tests (Score: 171) - 3D Frames Per Second: 513 Hardware Tests (Score: 53) - Primary Partition Capacity: 465 GB - Drive Write Speed: 205 MB/s Again, thank you for the help.
BNP posted a topic in Novabench Issues, Features, QuestionsHello, 1st thing, I've opened an account and for some reason "Israel" isn't listed as an option among the many others. Not anything personal, I hope... 2nd, I bought a new (and awesome) Thinkpad w530. And here are it's scroes: Verified NovaBench Score: 1208 Test run on June 18, 2014 at 10:52 Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center Intel Core i7-3940XM 3.00GHz running at 3201 MHz NVIDIA Quadro K2000M GPU 16203 MB System RAM (Score: 246) - RAM Speed: 13863 MB/s CPU Tests (Score: 807) - Floating Point Operations/Second: 205887792 - Integer Operations/Second: 927537784 - MD5 Hashes Generated/Second: 1328216 Graphics Tests (Score: 101) - 3D Frames Per Second: 317 Hardware Tests (Score: 54) - Primary Partition Capacity: 465 GB - Drive Write Speed: 209 MB/s Now, the strange thing (as clearly seen) is, the GPU score - It's extremely low. Around 33% less then the lowest score for this GPU in the "Scores & Stats" page (which is 149) and almost %300 less then the highest! (which is 271). Is there anything i'm missing? how can it be? BTW, game wise (though this laptop is NOT meant for gaming), this GPU performs amazing. Much better then expected (At least 3 times better then my old w520 with quadro 1000m), so I'm tending to rule out a GPU malfunction... Thank you, I'll appreciate any insights.
