3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest has 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.
- Default test settings
- Resolutiions 1280-1024-2560x1600
- 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
Higher = Better
At the resolutions most likely used with the GTS 450 and the HD 5750 being 1280x1024 and 1680x1050, the GTS 450 outperforms the ATI card at this level at stock clock speeds. The GTS 250 does muddy the field up a bit though. SLI scaling does not offer close to a 100% increase in performance as in some of the games but does contribute a nice bump if you go that route. As is par for the course you get a nice bump in your scoring with a bit of overclocking.
