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.

 

Settings:

  • SM2.0 Graphics Tests: GT1- Return to Proxycon, GT2- Firefly Forest

The CPU score in 3DMark06 plays a big part in the overall score in the benchmark. The E8400 has a hard time competing when more than two cores are beneficial to the final score. The one quad core CPU it did beat was the Phenom, in three out of four resolutions.
