In our 3DMark06 SM2.0 benchmark, it seems to us that the program likes the Buffalo Firestix the most. Although, one could say, that it is a statistical tie due to a margin of error.

Same goes for this one. Again, the OCZ Flex XLC PC2-6400 CAS4 2x1GB RAM trailed the Firestix by a single point.

The CPU score indicates that, for some reason, the Flex XLC and Firestix again led significantly over the SOE Urban Elites.

The overall score of 3DMark06 results in a final statistical tie. However, literal rankings put the Buffalo Firestix (Micron D9) in first place, with the Flex XLC and SOE Urban Elites in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.
