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
While there are no single GPU cards that will touch the 4870X2, the dual GPU HD4850X2 from Sappire takes a shot. Performance wise the card is very close to the faster X2. Looks like a clean sweep in the 3D06 comparison here.
