So I tried the benchmark on my 3 computers...
Computer #1, oldest, wouldn't run the benchmark at all, it crashes every time you try. I pretty much predicted this; it is an older WinXP machine that barely handles 60 FPS in WoW at lowest settings.
Computer #2, in the "Spare Room", scored a 2100. It has:
Athlon64 x2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8Ghz
Northbridge: AMD 780V
RAM: 4GB DDR2 1066 SDRAM
GPU: Radeon 4830HD 512MB
Computer #3, in My Room, scored 1820-1870 (ran it 3 times). It has:
AMD Phenom 9750 2.4Ghz Quad-Core
Northbridge: AMD 790FX
GPU: Radeon HD 4670 512MB
RAM: 8GB DDR2 1066
So my question is, why is computer #2 scoring so much higher than computer #3? I changed the desktop resolutions (why the Benchmark App doesn't Full-screen is beyond me, I bet I'd get 500+ score higher if it were fullscreen). Is it the CPU, or the Graphics Card maybe? I'm trying to figure out which is the weak link in Computer #3...
What confuses me even more is that Computer #3 gets higher FPS in WoW at the same settings than Computer #2... but yet Computer #2 scores higher on the benchmark... but Computer #3 loads it up faster (the "loading time" at the end I mean).
BTW: Both are running the same version of Win7.
