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
The Palit 9800GX2 offered the highest 3Dmark scores from 1280x1024 on up to 1920x1200 out of the Nvidia cards tested. The HD3870X2 out-scored every card at every resolution. Kind of surprising from a card that is outperformed in almost every benchmark.
