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
Futuremark's 3DMark06 confirms the kind of performance I've been experiencing with the real games, the 9800 stays behind the others along with the 8800 as usual although scoring a respectable 12000 points. However, it just can't keep up with today's card although overclocking lets it score an extra thousand points, enough to be within striking distance of the 9800GTX. Pretty good.
