3DMark06 is the very latest version of the "Gamers Benchmark" from FutureMark. The newest version of 3DMark expands on the tests in 3DMark05 by adding graphical effects using Shader Model 3.0 and HDR (High Dynamic Range lighting) which will push even the best DX9 graphics cards to the extremes.
3DMark06 also focuses on not just the GPU but also the CPU using the AGEIA PhysX software physics library to effectively test single and dual-core processors.
We again see that the Crossfire solution significantly outperforms the ultra at the highest resolution. We can see as we move up in resolution that the impact on performance is a lot less. The biggest gains over the single card solution are also noticed at the highest resolution.
