It's also rather obvious that..

1. Ati fans will think it's a cheat. Even if they don't really understand or read up on it.
2. Nvidia fans will think it's NOT a cheat. Even if they don't really understand or read up on it.
3. People that don't care either way will still judge this as a cheat.
Thanks Ady, you really cheered me up about this whole mess by putting it in it's proper perspetive.

I ain't gonna change any nVidia fanboys minds here, and the ATi fanboys it's preaching to the choir...but that all important "3. People that don't care either way will still judge this as a cheat" is the one that I spaced.

Here, let me quote it again...it fills me all up with happy for some odd reason:

The fanboys are going to be loyal to nVidia no matter what, but the more open minded "middle-of-the-road-the-brand-ain't-as-important-as-performance" people will know the truth.

Thanks, I feel better.

insults are never positive but consider that you are disregarding logical statements for hyposthesis that are more difficult to comprehend than things that should be clearly visible... ie... no clipping panes == no-no considering this particular benchmark... and the way timedemo's work...
Seconded.
