Question Radeon 64 DDR - Low 3D Mark 2001 score compared to 3D Mark 2000

I have a Radeon 64Mb DDR VIVO (Retail) card which I bought at the end of May. Overall I`m delighted with its performance e.g. Quake III, timedemo 1 with all details maxed out at 1024 x 768 x 32 gives me 77 fps. I have run 3D Mark 2000 many times at the default settings of 1024 X 768 X 16 and consistently get a score of 5420. Judging from other posts I should be hitting 3000 with 3D Mark 2001 but I only score 2710 regardless of what tweaks I apply and what drivers I use.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can increase my score above 2710? It seems low for my setup but my score in 3D Mark 2000 is very good it seems. Grateful for any advice/help!
