3DMark06

The new Futuremark 3DMark06 benchmark was released just a few months ago and has already become a popular test for GPU benchmarks and CPUs as well.  You can see my full overview of the new benchmark, what it has to offer over the 2005 version and some other initial scores from my previous article

Our default 3DMark06 scores show an increase of 23% or so with the second 8800 GTX card — no doubt this number is made less impressive by the 1280×1024 resolution it runs at for standard scoring.  The rest of the synthetic tests show BIG gains for SLI here including the fill rate tests (with a 97% gain), pixel shading test (with a 95% gain) and vertex shading (with an 83% gain).
