We've just gotten a hold of our first DDR3 based X38 motherboard, the ASUS P5E3. We compare to DDR2 X38 and DDR3 P35.

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 gives the ASUS X38 a win, this quite possibly due to the dual full speed x16 slots rather than the 16/4 config of the P35T.
