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 performance of the Galaxy 7300GT was miserable with it not even being able to run 1600 x 1200. As it turns out, the PCI-E x1 slot really must limit the card's GPU and memory potential.
