The Intel® Core™2 Extreme processor QX6850 enables great performance on today's games, and provides extra compute engines to get you ready to rock on tomorrow's multithreaded games.
Great Gaming Today – Amazing Gaming Tomorrow
3DMark*06 - CPU Test is an industry-standard 3D graphics benchmark from FutureMark* that uses DirectX* 9.0 shader models and complex, game-like 3D scenes to evaluate PC platforms. The CPU Test measures the contribution of the processor on 3D graphics performance while the Game Test measures simulated game performance.
3DMark06 – CPU Test can be used to represent immersive gaming. In the near future, games will use multiple cores to create an immersive gaming experience. Multiple core processors like the Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX6850 have additional cores to run Artificial Intelligence algorithms and calculate Physics for numerous objects in the game. 3DMark06 – CPU test measures a processor’s ability to run Artificial Intelligence and Physics on multiple cores and therefore can provide some insight into how a processor may perform on future immersive games.
