    Kerosine, I think you were probably using a (poorly) hacked / cracked version of our software. I am guessing you got it from some dodgy Russian download site. In addition to the benchmark results being wrong, these hackers sometimes insert viruses and backdoors into the software.

    Getting the software from our site (with valid code signing signature) avoids this.

    But with clean install of 10.1 version its works right.
    Try to delete all versions of perfomance test and install 10.1.

    if it is ten years old why still factor it into the 3dscore
    DirectX9 is (still) the most common API for games.
    DX10 & 11 were somewhat of a flop and DX12 was never available in Win7. So developers stayed with DX9 to get maximum compatibility. This is changing now as Win7 dies.


    I suppose there is limited interest from you in having a reliable benchmarking tool
    Sorry we don't have a magic wand to fix your machine.

    The RX 6800 is an expensive card. We don't have one to test with. But the code for the DirectX 9 test is more than 10 year old now, and run on millions of machines. So very low chance of it being a software issue. Yes could be a driver issue. But we aren't in a position to debug AMD's driver or try different settings.

    It isn't a common problem. Here is the distribution of results for the RX 6800 card in this DX9 test. No one is getting results as low as yours. So very likely it is some local issue on your machine. Having said that the distribution is pretty broad. So obviously other factors, driver settings, CPU in use, cooling, monitor, etc... effect the result.

    As for the age of the DX9 test, if it is ten years old why still factor it into the 3dscore?

    Also, if it is a new driver issue of course it wouldn't be reflected in the score distribution. . . yet.

    I suppose there is limited interest from you in having a reliable benchmarking tool and so why should I try to help with improvements. Sorry for wasting your time.

    Any further investigation? Is this an issue with the new Radeon driver?

    No. The only software possibly impacting performance is the Radeon software.

    Yes, the other 3D test result appear to be fine. Or even slightly above average.

    Do you have any 3rd party video software installed. They cause all kinds of problems. e.g. screen sharing, video streaming, video recording, head up display / game overlays, remote desktop, etc...

    Tuning / overclocking apps can also sometimes cause a problem.

    The AMD software shows ~85% GPU utilization while running the DX9 test.

    No, and the frame limiting / vsync settings are all disabled in the relevant settings areas.

    I think you would note that limitation elsewhere in Passmark's testing if they were on.

    Yes, DX9 result it should be higher.

    Are you using a monitor with FreeSync / G-Sync enabled?

    RX 6800 low 3D MARK / DX9 Score

    Hi all,

    I recently purchased a RX 6800 and everything is working well except for Performance Test DX9. I am running PT version 10.0 / build 1011.
