3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest begins. 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.
- 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
From 1280x1024 to 1920x1200, the HD 4890 offers up higher benchmark scores. Not until 2560x1600 does the ENGTX275 pull ahead of the HD 4890. Overclocking brought the ENGTX275's performance up to that delivered by the GTX 285. At 1280x1024, the ENGTX275 is a bit CPU-limited, so I bumped the CPU up to 4.1GHz and the clock speeds on the card and promptly hit 21,000 points in this benchmark; a 4,000 point jump.
