When I first got my ABV and 3000+ it gave me an error on boot...'unknown processor revision'.
I had to flash BIOS to .219
I got windows xp installed, downloaded all updates and patches etc...
Once everything was up and running I downloaded 3dmark 03 from futuremark.com to benchmark my machine.
I have Radeon8500 with 64MB of ram (a bit weak, but it'll do for now).
I noticed it was very laggy, not much better than the Athlon1.2 I replaced.
When comparing against other results with the SAME CPU and SAME video card, my score was significantly lower, and in particular the cpumark portion of the score was less than a third of the scores the others had posted. I have installed the latest HyperionPro drivers, the latest AMD driver etc... still seems to be very slow, I am disappointed.
Any suggestions? I am wondering if the board or CPU is faulty.
