Futuremark have just released their FREE Basic Edition of 3DMark06!

3DMark06 Features full DirectX 9.0C, Shader Model 3.0, and HDR (High Dynamic Range Lighting). Due to this, the minimum requirements are extremely high.

To run 3DMark06, you need a MINIMUM of:

  • 1024MB System RAM
  • A Shader Model 2.0 Video card with 256MB RAM
  • A 2.5Ghz Intel or 2500+ AMD CPU
  • Windows XP
  • DirectX 9.0C

This means most S478 or Socket A machines will seriously struggle, and budget cards with 128MB RAM will be very seriously crippled, as texture swapping will be required.  To run HDR tests, a video card is required to have SM3.0, HDR, 16Bit FP Texture support, and 16Bit FP Blending support.
