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 the CPU using the AGEIA PhysX software physics library to effectively test single and Dual Core processors.

 

 

Here we can see that we're right on the tip of 20,000 3DMarks. We did actually get over 20,000 at 3.8GHz but the CPU didn't want to play nice at that speed so we dropped it back 50MHz.

 

We can see good gains across the whole board with the highest resolution test being well and truly higher than the lowest resolution test of the stock setup.
