3DMark06, PCMark05 and Valve Source Engine Tests
This benchmark is used by many in the enthusiast crowd to compare their systems so we decided it would be good for our readers if we included numbers from our test system here as well.
PCMark, from the makers of the 3DMark series, tests various aspects of the system and reports the results back in a normalized score.
The 3DMark06 scores are pretty impressive from this CPU as well: the QX6850 is 16% faster than the previous quad core leader and 84% than the top end dual core Intel CPU. The AMD FX-62 doesn’t really stand a chance though and is 129% slower.
The PCMark05 tests shows higher overall, CPU and memory scores from the QX6850 compared to any competition.
