(see bottom of page for links to other benchmark results for Viewperf, Unigine, CoJ, FarCry2, etc.)
Here I present collated results for a range of different systems for the 3Dmark06 benchmark, with the assistance of my friend John who's contributed further P55/X58/Z68-based results using some GPUs I don't have (eg. 4890). See after the tables for extended system details.

Data is grouped according to CPU/system, and subgrouped by graphics card model. This is to make it easier to compare different configurations, eg. when checking for bottlenecks. The group containing the highest overall score for each CPU/GPU grouping is listed first. Other results are included as people send them to me (CPU-Z/3dmark.com links required), credit list after the tables. I might add an extra page later which just lists all the results in order of overall score.

Note that when comparing results, a strong CPU can mask a weak GPU, and vice versa; thus, don't rely on only the overall score, ie. compare the individual test fps data aswel.

Key (all GPU clocks are given as 'Core/Shader/RAM'; a single number refers to just the core clock):

John has two Radeon 4890s, two Palit GTX 460 1GB Sonic Platinums (800MHz core), a GTX 550 Ti and a couple of 5850s. I have a wide range of different GPUs: four 8800GTs (2 x 512MB, 2 x 1GB; where I say I have four of a type of card, it's because I have the same 512MB/1GB split so I can compare RAM usage issues), four 9800GTs, two EVGA GTX 460 FTWs (850MHz core), two Sonic Platinums (not yet tested these), a standard Palit GTX 460 768MB (overclocks to a crazy 868MHz!), two 3870s, five 4870s (2 x 512NMB, 3 x 1GB), two Sapphire 5850s, two EVGA GTX V2 460 1GB SSCs (867MHz core), X1950Pro (AGP & two PCIe for CF), 3850 AGP, 4670 1GB and a range of different Quadro professional cards.

Note that I did earlier tests using an i7 860 system, but that's now been replaced with an i7 870 setup at a higher clock. I'll remove the 860 results at some point.

John's i7 2700K is running on an ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 with 16GB DDR3/1333.

Other notes:

In CPU descriptions, IB = IvyBridge, SB = SandyBridge, HW = Haswell. Prior to running benchmarks, it's a good idea to empty all temp files and force all pending idle tasks to completion. Select Run from the Start menu, enter:

  %temp%

Press CTRL+A, then delete in the normal manner.

For the idle tasks, select Run and enter:

  Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks

And obviously, make sure other apps which might interfere are turned off, eg. antivirus programs, web browsers, etc.
