3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest begins. 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
When you compare performance from 1280x1024 to 1920x1200, the HD 4890 offers up higher benchmark scores. Once you reach 2560x1600 the N275GTX performs just a couple hundred points less than the GTX 285. Again with overclocking, I did not see a decent performance boost at the lower resolution where the test setup is CPU limited.
