CPU Synthetic Gaming Benchmarks: 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 06

Futuremark 3DMark Vantage Source: FutureMark

3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX10 performance of your graphics card. We’ve been making 3DMark for over 10 years, with each new edition using the latest 3D technology to determine real-world performance. 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.

Higher results are better.

The Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition still can't quite catch up the Core 2 Duo processors in 3DMark Vantage's processor test, although given the $80 premium on the Intel processors this isn't so bad. However Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage's test suite still favors multi-core processors, so those take the lead in this test.

3DMark06 also makes use of multiple cores in its CPU benchmarking, so the Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition is both behind the quad and triple core processors, as well as the Intel Core 2 Duo processors.
