3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest is started. 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
During the baseline testing of the 3DMark06 benchmarking suite, all the boards had very similar results; however, once you gave the CPU a boost in clock speeds, the scores did get a little bit better. This is why the X58-USB3 and DX58SO scored lower.
