Futumark: 3dMark05

Futuremark; 3DMark 2005 v1.2.0:

3DMark05 is best suited for the latest generation of DirectX 9.0
graphics cards. It is the first benchmark to require a DirectX9.0
compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shaders 2.0 or higher! By
combining high quality 3D tests, CPU tests, feature tests, image
quality tools, and much more, 3DMark05 is a premium benchmark for
evaluating the latest generation of gaming hardware.

Intel 965 3dMark05 CPU Test Results

Moving over to 3DMark 05 version 1.2.0 we can see how dual core
performs in a lightly threaded application. Here we see
the Intel Pentium 965 Processor Extreme Edition take the lead
for Intel, but it wasn’t enough to catch the AMD Athlon 64 X2
4800+ or the brand new AMD Athlon 64 X2 FX-60 processors.
  The overall score showed the single cored 4800+ in a dead heat
with the dual core FX-60.

Intel 965 3dMark05 CPU Test One Results

Looking at CPU Test #1 we can see that the AMD 4800+ with it’s
higher frequency (2.8GHz) single core beats our the dual core FX-60 by
just 0.1 frames per second.  The Intel Pentium 955/965 Extreme Edition
has a good lead over the other Intel EE’s and the 3.8GHz Intel Pentium
4 670, but still half a fps behind the AMD processors.

Intel 965 3dMark05 CPU Test Two Results

Taking a quick look at the CPU Test details from
the 3DMark05 test runs it can be seen that the Intel 965 and AMD FX-60
processors are close with only a 0.1 Frame Per Second
(FPS) difference between the two in CPU
test #2.
