3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest is 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.
- 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
As expected, the 9800GTX outperforms the single GPU field. Against the single GPU cards, the 9800GTX came out on top in 21 out of 32 tests. This represents roughly 68% of the tests. Against the dual GPU cards, this comparison is far from even. The closest comparison there was the 3870X2.
