Futuremark’s 3DMark06 has a built-in CPU test is a multi-threaded DirectX gaming metric that’s useful for comparing relative performance between similarly equipped systems. This test consists of two different 3D scenes that are processed with a software renderer that is dependent on the host CPU’s performance. Calculations that are normally reserved for your 3D accelerator are instead sent to the CPU for processing and rendering. The frame-rate generated in each test is used to determine the final score.
Benchmark Results: No big shocker here as the Intel Core i7 870 is still in fourth place where it has been all day. The Intel Core i5 750 seemed to slip a little in this benchmark since it doesn’t support Hyper-Threading technology.
