Hi everybody, i don't post very often, but after reading about 5 pages of the firingsquad's article that's posted at the main page, i couldn't help to notice that there's something really strange going on there... i have a GF3, the classic one, 64MB, running at 200/460, and after seeing the results of Quake III i noticed they were REALLY off, so i ran a few benchs and came to this numbers

ARTICLE
800x600 4xAA 8xAF
66.9
1024X768 4xAA 8xAF
42.1
1280X1024 4xAA 8xAF
WOULD NOT RUN

MY SCORES
800x600 4xAA 8xAF
93.7
1024X768 4xAA 8xAF
63.1
1280X1024 4xAA 8xAF
37.7

mine even ran at 1600 at those settings (don't remember the score, pretty slow thow)
as you can see, things are pretty weird, even more because i'm running an XP2400@2200Mhz, and they are benching with a P4 3.2G which should run much better on q3 engines... i was really looking up to the article when i saw the legend posted on the front page about the GF older generations being benched, but i don't think this is in anyway indicative of real performance... any ideas?

For the quake numbers, they use a custom demo ;)
