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.
- SM2.0 Graphics Tests: GT1- Return to Proxycon, GT2- Firefly Forest
- CPU Tests: Cpu1- Red Valley, CPU2- Red Valley

Really, the only cards giving the HD 4890's from Sapphire any challenge are the GTX 275's and the GTX 285. When overclocked the Toxic takes the top spot at 2560x1600, over the factory overclocked GTX 285.
