3DMark 06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking and the latest 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.
Default 3DMark06 settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1280×1024 was used.
Benchmark Results: 3DMark06 showed that the NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ was faster than the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 by 15.5% and the HIS Radeon HD 4870 by 1.3%. In CrossFire mode though the winner was obvious.
