Default How touchy is 3D mark 06?

I guess I just cant think of a better way to ask that question. Im useing the free version (basic edition), and here are my scores-

X2 @ 2.5 GHZ

7800GT @ stock

3D Mark 06= 4,117
-------------------------------------------------
X2 @ 2.5 GHZ

7800GT @ 495/1.16

3D Mark 06= 4,503
-----------------------------------------------------
X2 @ 2.5 GHZ

7800GT @ 502/1.18

3D Mark 06- 4,640


I mean, w/ an increase of 57 MHZ over stock for the core clock and from 1.07 to 1.18, i inscreased my 06 score by 523 3D marks.

I guess I Just found this really interesting. I mean that just seems like a large jump for such a small change in frequencies.

Those are very good scores for a 7800GT.

If you look at the clock speeds of a GPU, you can see that they are only a fraction of what a CPU's speed is, so a "smaller" jump in the core speed will have more of an effect than the same jump with a CPU.

Yes, 3dmark is very GPU dependent, so if you overclock your GPU, your score will go up

Haha i knew that durrr. I was just saying i didnt know that such a small increase in frequinces could have such an effect on your 3d mark score.
