In-Depth Look: Futuremark 3D Mark 06
 
We take the latest version of the popular benchmark for a test-drive to see what's new, what's changed and what you need for a good score. To put it simply, 06 is like 05, but on steroids. Let's take a look..

Discuss the review here!

i scored 2808 at 1024x786 with amd64 3200+ and 6800gt, this bench is pretty but makes me want a new puter

andrew 01-18-2006 03:52 PM

good job
 
great review by the way!

Rob Williams 01-18-2006 04:42 PM

Hehe, thanks! That's still a pretty good score. I seen a 431 score earlier, so you are way past that :D

andrew 01-18-2006 08:04 PM

curious...
 
have you had the chance to test your system and if so what score do you obtain?

Jakal 01-18-2006 08:08 PM

I can't wait to get my pc done and see what it can do. I can't even imagine trying to run that on this one lol. It probably wouldn't! Those pictures are awesome; that high-def stuff should really show what a system's made of.

The system in my sig scores something like 3900 when overclocked :cool:

It's nuts, there is a 9,500 score atm.. shouldn't be long before someone hits 10k.

10k was soooooooooo yesterday lol

Word. 01-19-2006 11:09 AM

Ill run it sometime.. and prolly get about 600 marks...... if that.

Rob Williams 01-19-2006 11:43 AM

I guesstimate that you will get 2,300.

Do it. DO IT.

Im guessing that Intel spent a crap ton of money to get 3dM06 optimized for their CPU, to use it as heavy marketing to attempt to pull themselves up from the hammer fisted beating from AMD this year.

Strange, the Intel get better 3dMarks...yet any game ou there on teh market runs faster on AMD hardware. Hmmmm....i wonder why that is?

3dMark is preaty to look at and all. But seriously, its nothing more then a marketed tech-demo showing off new design techniques for companies to get extra exposure from to help boot a new title coming out from them (think 3dm01 and the Max Payne esque demo). And its becoming more then obvious over the last three editions, that its nothing more then a paid advertisment for hardware companies to get their name outthere to the highest bidder.

As far as i can tell the only people walking away a winner here, is the guys at MadOnion, or whatever the hell their company name is this year.


Sorry for the rant. But i really hate 3dmark.

As mentioned, it's because it was a Dual Core CPU.

Buck-O 01-20-2006 10:38 PM

Ahhh, im sorry, i was under the impression that the Athlon 64 was a dual-core too.

However, my stance on 3DMark still stands.

Rob Williams 01-20-2006 11:16 PM

It looks like the main reason you bash 3D Mark is because it just pimps upcoming games, like Max Payne in '01. Please tell me which retail games can be found in '03, '05 or '06.

Rob Williams 01-22-2006 08:37 PM

I'm waiting.
