3DMark06 is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX9 performance of your graphics card.

A 3DMark score is an overall measure of your system's 3D gaming capabilities, based on comprehensive real-time 3D graphics and processor tests. By comparing your score with those submitted by millions of other gamers you can see how your gaming rig performs, making it easier to choose the most effective upgrades or finding other ways to optimize your system.

3DMark06 has been downloaded more than any other 3D benchmark and the ORB database now contains over 8.5 million 3DMark06 benchmark scores from around the world.

3DMark is an essential tool for every PC gamer, hardware enthusiast or component manufacturer in the industry.

Minimum System Recommendation
Single-core Intel® or AMD® compatible processor 2.5GHz or higher
DirectX® 9 compatible graphics adapter with Pixel Shader 2.0 support or later, and graphics memory of 256MB*
1GB of system RAM or more
1.5GB of free hard disk space
Windows® 7, Windows® XP or Windows Vista™ 32 or 64bit operating system with latest Service Packs and updates installed
DirectX® 9.0c December 2005 or later
Visual C++ 2005 Redist
Microsoft Excel® 2003/XP or later for some 3DMark functionality
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later for some 3DMark functionality
Microsoft DirectX 9.0c (December 2005) System Development Kit is required to run the image quality test using the reference rasterizer.


Recommended System
Multi-core Intel® or AMD® compatible processor 2.0GHz or higher
DirectX® 9 compatible graphics adapter with Pixel Shader 3.0 support or later, and graphics memory of 512MB*
2GB of system RAM or more
1.5GB of free hard disk space
Windows® 7, Windows® XP or Windows Vista™ 32 or 64bit operating system with latest Service Packs and updates installed
DirectX® 9.0c December 2005 or later
Visual C++ 2005 Redist
Microsoft Excel® 2003/XP or later for some 3DMark functionality
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later for some 3DMark functionality
Microsoft DirectX 9.0c (December 2005) System Development Kit is required to run the image quality test using the reference rasterizer.

* To run the HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, a DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapter with support for Pixel Shader 3.0, 16 bit floating point textures and 16 bit floating point blending is required.

It is possible that 3DMark06 will run on PCs that do not meet the minimum recommendation above, but the benchmark performance may be seriously affected. For example, insufficient video memory will result in texture swapping - this will cause fluctuations during the tests, reducing the reliability of the generated scores.

New feature for the Basic Edition (Free)

The Advanced & Professional Editions will continue to show the results offline, but 3DMark06 Build 1.1.0 introduces a new feature for the Basic Edition (Free) users - the score is viewable online only. This new feature will enable new users to get an online analysis of their system, and to quickly & easily compare their results to others. The new online service called "Result Analyzer" is one of the key elements of the next generation of benchmarks from Futuremark.

See Mark Reader for a free program that lets you read these results files WITHOUT Submitting them online!
