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.
Benchmark Results: At the default resolution of 1280×1024 we see that both of the 8800 GTS cards are faster than the 8800 GTX. In SLI that lead grows just a little more. If you live and die by your 3D Mark score the newer G92 core cards are for you.
Benchmark Results: With the monitor resolution cranked up to 2560×1600 we see much of the same with the GTX at the bottom of 3D Mark scoring. Again, this is why it’s very important to look at other tests instead of relying solely on 3D Mark.
