3DMark Vantage and '06

3DMark06's built-in CPU test is a multi-threaded DirectX gaming metric that's useful for comparing relative performance between similarly equipped systems.  This test consists of two different 3D scenes that are processed with a software renderer that is dependent on the host CPU's performance.  Calculations that are normally reserved for your 3D accelerator are instead sent to the CPU for processing and rendering.  The frame-rate generated in each test is used to determine the final score.

The additional cores and clock give the Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition an edge over all of the other AMD processors and the Intel quad and dual-cores tested here.  Once again though, the pricier Intel Core i7-970 has a big lead.

3DMark Vantage's CPU Test 2 tells a similar story to 3DMark06. The X6 1100T BE is clearly the fastest AMD processor and it outpaces the Core i5s tested here, but the i7-970 is in another league.
