8600M GT 3DMark06 Benchmarks Using Different nForce/nVision Drivers
Drivers up to 181.00, Updated December 19th 2008
3D Mark 06 Scores:
SM2: Represents the ability to produce Shader Model 2.0 effects
HDR/ SM3: Represents the ability to produce High Dynamic Range lighting and Shader Model 3.0 effects
SM2 + HDR: Represents both the SM2 and HDR scores combined, this column shows the most reliable performance of the driver
Notes: 3D Mark 06 results only show how the drivers perform under 3D Mark 06, they do not necessarily represent the driver's performance in real world games.
Notes: Contains most effects found commonplace in today's games. It doesn't majorly strain the computer and is a good indication of just how high a graphics driver can pump out extra frames per second
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Notes: Same graphics style as Counter-Strike: Source but utilizes more effects, particularly HDR lighting and complex water reflections, though some maps in Counter-Strike: Source offer this, they aren't to be found in the CSS benchmark
Engine: CryEngine 2
Notes: Currently the god of game graphics, on Very High settings that is, it uses a vast range of effects such as Volumetric Clouds, Water Geometry, HDR lighting, Complex Shadows and Shading, Complex Reflections, Complex lighting used by other effects, and a Particle system
No overclocking used in all benchmarks. System tested on is to the left. Benched using 1280x800 no AA in 3D Mark 06
(VISTA64) 3D Mark 06 Scores sorted by Driver Version - Lowest to Highest
(VISTA64) 3D Mark 06 Scores Sorted by SM2 + HDR Score - Lowest to Highest
Counter-Strike: Source is tested with recommended settings, no AA using proprietary benchmark (VIDEO STRESS TEST in game menu)
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is tested with recommended settings, no AA using proprietary benchmark (VIDEO STRESS TEST in game menu)
Crysis is tested with medium settings, no AA using proprietary GPU benchmark (Benchmark_GPU.bat in Bin32 folder)
The scores represent the average number of frames per second
