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.

 

For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.

 

 

3DMark05 shows us a performance rise when overclocking Core 2 processors.

 

It is interesting as Core 2 gains more performance in even little steps, where Netburst simply needed 1GHz jumps to notice any real performance gains.
