3DMark06 Standard Test
On the next few pages, we'll focus on a few gaming specific benchmarks, starting with the rest of 3DMark06's modules.
When it was released, 3DMark06 was a hard-core, forward-looking 3D rending benchmark that pushed a system and its GPUs to the limits. The test includes Shader Model 2.0, Shader Model 3.0, and HDR tests. To push the system, scenes are rendered with very high geometric detail and shader complexity, and with extensive use of lighting and soft shadows. The maximum shader length 3DMark06 supports is 512 instructions. The 3DMark06 Overall Score is a weighted average based on the SM 2.0 and HDR / SM3.0, and CPU scores.
With its Radeon HD 4870 X2 and 3.33GHz processor, the LANShark Extreme performs near the top in 3DMark06.
