3DMark05 is now the second latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and above.
For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.
We have seen the Radeon graphics cards take quite the lead in 3DMark05 these days. It seems to mean little, though, because as soon as we get into the more intensive games, we begin to see where all the cards actually sit in terms of real-world performance.
