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
In a test long considered to be a bragging test, the Gigabyte pulled it off by a hair, beating the ECS board. It also looks like the boast of 1500 3DMarks has been eclipsed by 31 marks. Gigabyte backs up this claim with the performance of the IGP.
