Futuremark's 3DMark06 (30 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 19-January-2006  04:28:29 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Futuremark have released 3DMark06, the latest version of their long-running series of gaming-oriented 3D benchmarks. A more comprehensive and unrestricted benchmark than previous versions, 3DMark06 includes an array of 3D graphics, CPU and 3D feature tests for overall performance measurement of current and future PC gaming systems. With this broader design approach, 3DMark06 will be the benchmark of choice for all PCs with top-of-the-line graphics hardware and CPUs. Futuremark predicts that 3DMark06 will emerge as the most complete 3D graphics benchmark for Windows XP, paving the way for new benchmarks targeted at future OS environments such as Windows Vista.

Some coverage on EliteBastards, Guru3D, Hexus, PC Perspective, Planet X64, Techgage and Tweak3D.

We have a general discussion thread and a results thread where you can compare your scores.

There's download sites listed here. We do have an OCAU mirror of the ~600MB free version, but for the sake of our server the link is in the comments thread for this news story. Enjoy!
