3DMark05 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and higher.
For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.
3DMark05 shows us that at both resolution we don't get any performance gains with the new chipset - it actually shows the X16 scoring slightly lower in both resolutions.
It's strange to see lower scores - at worst we expected scores to be the same but it might come down to drivers and so on which haven't been tweaked properly yet.
