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.




In this super-intensive benchmark, the X1600-based cards performed at least twice as well as the GeCube X1300. Again, the Sapphire edged out the GeCube X1600, but by a lesser margin of just 3%. As before, the X1600-based cards took a hit of around 11%-12% when benchmarked at 1360x768, while the X1300 dropped by 16%.
