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
Performance in 3DMark06 is not so impressive, scaling is poor and they get beaten by both of ATI's dual GPU cards, the 4870X2 and the 4850X2. While stock scores aren't so impressive, with some overclocking I was able to get the scores to jump to over 17000 at each resolution, enough to beat the competition by a fair margin.
