3DMark 2006 is the worldwide standard in advanced DirectX 9 3D game performance benchmarking and is the latest DirectX 9 version in the popular 3DMark series! 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, advanced SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.
Results: The HD 4870 nearly cracks 15.5k at 1280×1024 but more importantly at 1920×1200 the HD 4870 is still faster than the HD 4850. Here the doubled amount of bandwidth is really helping the HD 4870 pull away.
