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 continues to see the GeCube offering dominate the pack. The Sapphire sits just behind it with the HIS just behind it and the PowerColor trailing at the end of the pack.

 

Here at the higher resolution and when the graphics system is put under more stress, Crossfire offers over 40% performance improvement.
