    Building on 3DMark05 as a foundation, Futuremark improved the core 3D engine, adding more complex ShaderModel 2.0 tests, stunning High Dynamic Range (HDR) ShaderModel 3.0 tests, and overall enhanced the product with substantially higher polygonal counts expected to be found in games two years into the future. Even with the addition of HDR/ShaderModel 3.0 tests, 3DMark06 still enables ShaderModel 2.0 compliant graphics card owners to run most of the benchmark and get a fully comparable 3DMark score. With these demanding new DirectX 9 implementations, 3DMark06's four graphics tests measure performance of the most advanced hardware while showing visually the compelling advantages of these new shader types.

    3DMark06 is the first product from Futuremark using the AGEIA(tm) PhysX software physics library in two very complex, game-like threaded CPU tests conceived to measure properly performances of single processor, multi-core and multiple processor systems in next generation of games. In addition to using real-time physics, both CPU tests also employ multi-threaded artificial intelligence algorithms. By combining the results of the two CPU tests and four graphics tests, 3DMark06 enables users to get a 3DMark score which reflects the overall gaming performance of their PC. Futuremark and their industry partners anticipate that CPU performance promises to be increasingly important in next generation PC games as new titles increase their use of artificial intelligence and complex physics and their reliance on multithreaded processing.

    You can download 3DMark06 from this page

    Please use my next thread as a template for your benchmarks.
    Thanks.

    yeah...... they're a nice bump in performance over 6800GT's..... or at least it seemed like one to me. i mean.... now, CoD2 can play with all the settings maxed (not including corpse count and stuff.... i don't think.... don't remember if i changed that or not) at a rather reasonable framerate..... sometimes dropping down to like 10fps... but that's still not that bad.

    only a 400 point difference between your system and mine, LoctOut? and you even OC'd your CPU, have an OC'd 7800GTX, and 1GB more DDR than me, at a faster DDR speed....... something don't seem right there......

    Everything was at default settings for advanced version bar enabling all the extra tests.

    Is anyone finding that when they click on a compare URL it says they are not logged in?

    Also if you have a problem running 3DMark, make sure you have installed the December update rollup for DirectX (worked for me):

    you have to login once with an active orb project then you'll be fine - I just tried it out and seen how much the fx57 pwns my 3500+ :p

    I am logged in, but it seems to do it regardless, very strange.
    Alot of X2 chips seem to be owning my FX57, but they could well be FX60 chips, strange, I didn't really do anything when I benched anyway - of course everything was stock and I didn't stop any services etc.

    Dunno bout that. I am pwning your CPU and its hardly an FX-60.

    :smoker:

    I think the CPU tests are simply multi-threaded which is why there is a performance improvement with the dual-cores. Probably with P4's as well with HT.
