For benchmarking geeks, the Futuremark 2006 is here.


3DMark06 is the first product from Futuremark using the AGEIA™ 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.

I would love to see a video of the benchmark.

3 old GPU tests (well, all the graphical assets are redone so lots more detail), one great-looking snow-themed new one and 2 CPU tests which seemed to kick my A64 to its proverbial private parts repeatedly for 5 long minutes.

I guess it's time to upgrade my drivers to get an approved result, but until that here's my ORB link (http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=976) .

Sweet! Time to measure my e-peni!

edit: omg!!1! 2143 3D marks :P

For those interested, it runs like a dog (as expected), and its mostly rehashed assetts from last years 3Dmark, with improved shaders/fx/poly count. The new snow scene does look wonderful however, it just renders at around 5fps :P

My PC got 576... ouch! I was looking at the results page. Combined Geforce 7800 GTX with Athlon 64 X2 can get over 10 000. Sheesh, that is seriously kicking the crap out of my system that is only two years old!

A good CPU will boost the scores nicely since the CPU tests are heavily multithreaded: There's 87 small bots running through the landscape, each of those can be multithreaded. Particle system can be multithreaded. Those flying dolphins can be multithreaded etc. etc.
