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.



3DMark06 shows that the IGP graphics of the 780G is able to do some basic DX10 work, however it's still not enough to be considered a good GPU for most of today's 3D games. The 3450 does boost over the 780G IGP, but the real benefit is from running in Hybrid mode, allowing quite a bit of a gain in the overall score.
