3DMark05 is now the second latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and above.

At stock speed when the graphics are turned up, the Intel Bad Axe 2 just outscores the P965 board.
We were wondering why and realised it's the way ATI Crossfire works on the two platforms. The Intel 975X uses 2 x PCI Express x8 lanes for its Crossfire system whereas the P965 uses a x16 lane for its primary card and a x4 lane off the Southbridge for its secondary card leading to a slight drop in performance.
