3DMark06 is one of those benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest breaks out. 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.

The P45 Platinum is at the top of the scoring in three out of the four resolutions tested and falls only in the 1920 x 1200 benchmark by ten points. The performance of the MSI P45 Platinum eclipsed that of the X48 based comparison board in this benchmark across all four resolutions.
