3DMark06 – Single Card
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.
According the 3DMark06, the performance of the AMD Radeon HD 2900 XT should be better than that of the 8800 GTS 640MB card we used in our testing and nearly rivaling that of the GTX card. Unfortunately, in real world gaming tests, that didn’t appear to be the case.
