Talking Ooooh, lemme take a swing at #2!

Quick gaming break, I have to catch me breath.

And it isn't visible to us mortals, and doesn't affect IQ.

And why did top websites have to post this finding on the front page ? And in the manner they did.
You're forgetting one thing about that benchmark that is used exclusively by "the PC elite"....nVidia is using it to herald their card as the undisputed King. If it didn't mean anything except to the "PC elite" do you really think everyone would be making such a big deal about it?

Why not email Nvidia about it first, see if they do something about it in a possible 'fix', THEN report it ?
Funny thing, I tried e-mailing 'em. They tried their damndest to get me fired, but they still haven't returned my e-mail.
