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.

 

 

The GMA 3000 cannot hold out too well against the 6200 TurboCache in games despite its ability to run DX9 games. It is just not really that good.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 2.4GHz E6600
