3DMark 06 Professional:

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We once again have a clear winner at stock settings. The Gigabyte EX58-UD4P comes out on top of every board by a fair margin.

The MSI Eclipse Plus however, is the top overclocker for this benchmark. At stock settings it performed by far the worst, but once the overclock set in, well, let's just say this board didn't lose anymore.
