Results - Futuremark 3DMark06

In 3DMark06's tests, the CPU is also actively involved in the normal graphics benchmarks for some physics and flight path calculation of the jet-packed airship rendered on screen, but when considering its influence in the big picture of a gaming performance indicator, graphics performance is still key. Thus you can see why the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ fared well in the overall 3DMark scores, but not so when considering the CPU tests only. While the GPU may have the last say today in pure gaming performance, this might not be the case considering games like Alan Wake in the near future; so don't write-off the influence of the CPU just yet.
