3DMark06 is the sixth generation 3DMark and determines the DirectX 9 performance of graphics cards. The measurement unit of 3DMark06 is intended to give a normalized mean for comparing different graphics processing units. This program features HDR rendering, video post processing, dynamic soft shadows, water shaders, hterogeneous fog, light scattering and cloud blending. The default setting for 3DMark06 is 1280 x 1024 but I conducted several runs using different resolutions to provide more results for comparison. Higher scores provide better results.
- 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
3DMark06 scores were very similar and no board was able to pull away from the others during testing.
