HowTo / Notes

Running 3DMark 2006 under Wine

In order to run 3DMark 2006 under Wine you have to:

1) first install d3dx9_28.dll and d3dx9_36.dll dlls using winetricks (right mouse click, "Save link as", save as, then make it executable, then run it).

2) edit the 3dmark 2006 link and add this flag to its command line: "-nosysteminfo", so it will look like:

wine "C:\\Program Files\\\Futuremark\\3DMark06\\3DMark06.exe" -nosysteminfo

Wine 1.7.1 vs Windows 7 64
by Artem S. Tashkinov on Monday September 16th 2013, 16:25
NVIDIA GTX 660/325.15, Linux 3.10 i686:

16430 3DMarks
SM2.0 Score: 5384
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 7855
CPU Score: 6313

(native d3dx9_36 and d3dx_28 are required, 3DMark must be run with -nosysteminfo option)

Windows 7 64 results will be posted shortly.

NVIDIA GTX 660/320.49, Windows 7 64 SP1:

24950 3DMarks
SM2.0 Score: 9874
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 12681
CPU Score: 6042

CPU score is more or less the same, SM scores are almost two times smaller.
Wine 1.4 vs Windows XP 64

Wine 1.4/kernel 3.3 x86/NVIDIA 290.10 results:

10101 3DMarks
SM2.0 Score: 4506
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 3007
CPU Score: 7006

Windows XP 64/NVIDIA 285.58

15568 3DMarks
SM2.0 Score: 6196
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 5918
CPU Score: 7407

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K @4.1GHz
GPU: NVIDIA 9800GT non-overclocked

Wine definitely needs to be greatly improved, on average it's 33% slower, but in SM3.0 test it's two times slower.
SLI gives lower score than sinle card
by Vadim on Sunday December 12th 2010, 11:32
3DMark06 ver.1.20, wine 1.3.9

2xGTX280, QX9770, resolution 1600x1200, all other settings default.


7418 3DMarks
SM2.0 Score: 2362
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 3167
CPU Score: 5185

(SLI=AFR gives the same scores, SFR slightly better, AA even more better (despite there was no antialiasing at all))


8341 3DMarks
SM2.0 Score: 2805
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 3471
CPU Score: 5199

i.e. single card has better performance. Weird...

More than that - GTX580 gave LESS score than obsolete GTX280: 8160/2645/3485/5163. wine 1.3.11
Why such strange results?
