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.
3DMark shows that 8800 GTX SLI is the top dog in video card performance here. However, Nathan showed in his “Dream Machine” article just how much a faster CPU can affect the results. The SM 3.0 test is the real way to compare the results here. With nearly a 1000 point lead it’s clear that the SLI system has some serious power.
