Indeed. Some people choose to forget that nVidia already had their own demo prepared before id told them they they couldn't use it. One can assume most of the optimizations made for that demo were still completely applicable to the demo id ended up providing....

Why can't people understand that?

Alas, that is not what this thread is for. This is about 3dmark.
