3DMark06

The well-known benchmark series from Futuremark is now inthe version 2006 appeared and is accordingly called '3DMark06'. Four of the six test scenes measure the performance of the graphics card and show a graphic splendor that is second to none. In order to achieve this, the Finns rely on the latest 3D technology, which is why not only the Shader Model 3.0 is used massively, but also extremely complex textures, spectacular particle effects, complex shadow calculations and, as another highlight, 'High Dynamic Range Rendering' - HDRR for short used. For this, Futuremark relies on FP16-HDR, which currently delivers the best possible image quality, but is also complex to calculate. This means that graphics cards without FP16 blending units, including the X8x0 series from ATi, cannot execute two test scenes, which is why the score of these GPUs is generally low. In addition, only graphics cards that can run MSAA on an FP16 render target can compute HDRR sequences with anti-aliasing. Graphics cards without this capability do not generate any points when using anti-aliasing and are therefore not taken into account. Further details on this program are available in one of our detailed articles.
