No score except the ones from game Test 1 through 4 has an impact on the final score.

3Dmark03 was DESIGNED to put the load on the videocard. You know why?
Because that's the future of shading intense games.

Here's what Futuremark had to say about even before it was available for download:

[NH]: There has been some complaints that the CPU, RAM and MOBO influenced the scores too much, is this any different in the 03 version?
[FM]: As we have focused even more heavily on the Shaders in 3DMarkŪ03, the graphics card is more of a bottleneck than it was in 2000 and 2001. 3DMarkŪ03 comes with a separate CPU test for more in-depth CPU benchmarking.

Iraqi Information Minister indeed.
No lies, just facts.

As a benchmark for gaming performance, 3dmark03 is poor.

And no sir, I am not half as dellusional as Sahaf
