3dmark does have it's benefits Slappi due to it's very large database of different systems.
It's interesting to note that only the DX9 GT4 game shows the problem, why does GT2 and GT3 not show it ?
You get more points for GT3 realtively and so there would have been the place to "cheat" . Then my GF4 would have benefitted as well of course
It's terrible for nVidia to exclude us GF4 guys !
If the released Det 50's / FX don't show this problem and are as fast then ExtremeTech might find themselves in serious legal problems.
Of course, I use LOD adjustments when I run 3dmark so I can't really have an unbiased comment on the matter.
