Guys, what am I missing ?

I can only select 640 and 800px modes on openGL viewer ! ;) No chance of 1280x1024


I have around 16500 Openmark score with 7900GT 256MB, not too happy considering you have that with 7600GT.

BTW, new OGLEV is here http://www.realtech-vr.com/glview/download.html


Select test, use these settings so everyone tests the same

1280X1024X32 (60Hz) Display Mode

Tick multisample set to 4

Untick LOD, set slider to 0

Anistropy set to 16

Tick Use Fog


As you reduce options your results will get higher - but it's just pushing raw polygons. Makes crappy cards look good...

Then new 3.0 version just came out last week, so it has some options I'm unfamiliar with...

I still have serious doubts whether this app is really any better than xbench for effectively showing the power of modern video cards.


If you download Santaduck benchmark and use UT2004 (or download demo if you don't have it), and then compare the results to other cards (on Windows or PC) you'll see the 8800 GTX/GTS cards in OS X aren't as bad as xbench/openmark seem to suggest.

Which re-enforces that these synthetic benchmarks are useless.


I'll stick with my 768MB 8800GTX even though your card has a higher number. :)
