Futuremark 3DMark06 1.0.2 Source: FutureMark

3DMark06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking. A fundamental tool for every company in the PC industry as well as PC users and gamers, 3DMark06 uses advanced real-time 3D game workloads to measure PC performance using a suite of DirectX 9 3D graphics tests, CPU tests, and 3D feature tests. 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.

The same thing happens in 3DMark06's CPU test, where the Phenom II X6 1090T outpaces every other CPU, including the Core i7 920 being used on the Intel X58 Express motherboards. Again this could be influenced by TurboCore frequency adjustment.

PCMark Vantage shows the same trends as 3Dmark06 and 3DMark Vantage, although in this particular case Intel's X58 motherboards paired with the Core i7 920 processor have nearly identical scores to the MSI 890FXA-GD70 motherboard paired with the TurboCore-enabled Phenom II X6 1090T processor.
