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

 

 

To begin our benchmark testing, we’ll measure CPU performance using Futuremark 3DMark06's CPU performance module. 3DMark06's test is useful for comparing performance between similarly equipped systems. This multi-threaded, "gaming related" DirectX metric consists of different 3D scenes that are generated with software and hardware GPU renderers, which is also dependant on the host CPU's performance. In these tests, calculations that are normally reserved for a 3D accelerator are sent to the central processor. 3DMark06's GPU rendering tests utilize a mix of SM2.0, SM3.0, and HDR techniques and effects.

 

As we would expect, the Tecra A11 with its Core i7 processor outperformed the Core i5 processor in the Samsung and Lenovo test machines.
