Testing:

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
  • CPU Tests: Cpu1- Red Valley, CPU2- Red Valley
  • HDR/SM3.0 Graphics Tests: HDR1- Canyon Flight, HDR2- Deep Freeze

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Except at 1280x1024 where MSI's Platinum is about 700 points late, it stays within striking distance from the other boards. Overclocking gives it an edge even though 3DMark06 doesn't show huge improvements with high processor clock speed.
