3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest has begun. 3DMark06 presents a severe test for many of today's hardware components. Let's see how this setup fares. The settings we will use are listed below.
- Default test settings
- Resolutions 1280-1024-2560 x 1600
- SM2.0 Graphics Tests: GT1- Return to Proxycon, GT2- Firefly Forest
- CPU Tests: CPU1- Red Valley, CPU2- Red Valley
- HDR/SM3.0 Graphics Tests: HDR1- Canyon Flight, HDR2- Deep Freeze
Higher = Better
The EAH6850 performs right around the level of the ENGTX465, HD 6850 and GTX 460 in this test. Overclocking does not necessarily increase the performance differential as this same group of cards compete at close to the same level.
