So...

How is 3dMark2K3 an accurate representation of "future" games if the NV35 is CLEARLY the best card for Doom III, yet a "poor" performer in 3dMark2K3?
Umm doom3 doesn't use PS2.0 actually doom 3 doesn't use PS at all becuase IT IS OPENGL TWIT.

Next doom3 doesn't use the ogl similar features to that of PS2.0 except in the ARB2 and Nvidia special NV_extensions. Now if you go for the offical not the Nvidia special PS2.0 equalivant then doom3 is about 50% slower on the NV30 compared to the 9700s.
NV35 beats the r350 in doom3 when it uses it special function I don't know how it affect quality but good on Nvidia there but other then that its not good news for them.
