Poor scores after upgrading to windows 10

Recommended Posts

So after upgrading to windows 10 i get significantly lower scores. Like 200-300 points less. Unfortunately, I don't have any old scores saved. But I've attached my latest benchmark results. My specs are: i5 4460, Asus GTX970 turbo, 16gb 1600mhz Corsair ram, WD blue 7200rpm.

Your CPU and GPU scores are in-line with the average in our score charts: https://novabench.com/gpuchart.php

It's possible that you had an overclock setting on your CPU or GPU that got reset to stock when you upgraded?

Actually, those are the overclocked gpu scores. So, theoretically, it's underperforming.

It's hard to say without seeing any benchmarks from before.

- Did you do an in-place upgrade, or fresh install to 10?
- Assume you have the latest drivers?
- Are you noticing lower frame rates in games?

1. In place upgrade. Kept the files and apps.

2. I am using the latest 361 Nvidia drivers

3. The framerates seemed to have improved slightly in games

It's just that novabench shows me lower scores. My temps are the same btw.

Okay, I've had some people say their Novabench scores went down after the change to 10, a few say it went up.

They should be the same across versions. I'll investigate more, there could be a problem with the test, or something in general with Windows 10. I don't have anything firm to tell you, but if your games are performing well, then I wouldn't worry.

I noticed the same thing . https://novabench.com/profile/

I have slightly increased the overclock on the CPU and increased the GPUclock by 550MHz and the memory clock by 500 MHz for the GTX960.

I would have thought that  a GTX960 4gb , would have kicked the arse of the HD5850 that it replaced .

I am using the 64 bit version of Win10 as opposed to 32bit win7 .

Thanks, that's an interesting finding. I'm going to keep looking into it.

Do you notice if games perform better or worse now?
