    This is a comparison between the different CPUs
    offered by Alienware for the m17.


    Here are the 3DMark06 Scors I collected from this and other forums to compare.


    3870x2

    Default CPU/GPU settings:

    OverClocked CPU/GPU settings:
    4850x2

    Default CPU/GPU settings:

    OverClocked CPU/GPU settings:

    Most of the scores are made @ 1280x1024, 1280x800 or 1280x720. The systems are all fitted with two 3870 CrossFireX but some have Raid 0/1 some not!

    Sadly I have not for every score a confermation links and this is where I need youre help to make this comparison even better!


    I'll update this list to ceep it up to date ;) If you want i can also add Vantage scores but for this I need some :p (or scores from other comparisons)

    Right now I listed the highest score I found but when I'll have more and you want it, I'll add an average score or the lowest and highest score (wich I would prefer)

    If I named youre score and you don't want that ... just say that and I'll remove it if you want to be named say it, too :cool:

    I hope this can help you to decide wich CPU you should buy or update to!

    Greetings
    Julian

    For the Extreme processors, it depends on what the multipliers are set to. A stock M17 with an X9100 would not be scoring 15k; it's more like 13.9k

    BTW is your score what you got when you ran the 3dMark or was it a # AW gave you with your system?
