it finally proves without a doubt that as a test of game performance, synthetic benchmarks are dead. And I think it's article time.
indeed, you are right sir.
WHQL means alot more than Futuremarks' input to me. And then, how about that whole 'nvidia has no access to source code' fact there...nvidia cheating?? how about simply 'ATi knows how to please the benchmark precisely while nvidia is still guessing'
frankly, i just wish the benchmark didnt exist and that my fellow consumers stopped treating it like its gold. cuz its a joke. the idea that a benchmark exists that CERTAIN hardware mfrs have more access to than others certainly stinks more than anything regarding missing effects in playback of that benchmark by nvidia.
