 Performance Comparisons with 3DMark06
 Details: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

The Futuremark 3DMark06 CPU benchmark consists of tests that use the CPU to render 3D scenes, rather than the GPU. It runs several threads simultaneously and is designed to utilize multiple processor cores.



And here we have the first benchmark that proves our assumptions: the R580 is slower than the Core 2 powered Dell machine. This is a test that really focuses on CPU horsepower in order to notch its score. You'll see that the Core i5 chip actually scored worse than the Core 2 Duo chip in the Studio XPS 16, but the numbers speak for themselves. We realize the clock speed is a touch lower on the Core i5 than the Dell's Core 2 Duo, but with Turbo Mode and its architectural advantages, the Core i5 in the R580 should have been able to catch the Core 2.
