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.
- 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 it came down to it in the 3DMark06 benchmark, the MSI R4850 was able to keep up with the big dogs such as the 9800 GTX and the GTX 280. The Sapphire HD4850 and the MSI R4850 were able to stay neck and neck during the testing, however the R4850 was able to beat out the HD4850 at higher resolutions by a small margin.
